Baidu Inc, China's leading search engine, will start hiring software engineers directly from the United States early next month, as it seeks to expand its technological capabilities and raise its global profile.


Baidu, whose name is taken from an ancient poem, was considered to be the biggest beneficiary in China's search sector after Google Inc moved its Chinese online search services to Hong Kong.


Baidu would hire 30 mid- to senior-level software engineers from Silicon Valley at a job fair on July 10, to drive new technology projects, the first direct hiring from the United States, a Baidu spokesman told Reuters on Tuesday.

I always thought Baidu's biggest deficiency are its unsound business decisions concerning advertisting, not so much its algorithms, but I might be wrong.

Why do they need "American software specialist" ?

I thought China has the intellectual capacity to challenge google with their own.

If Baidu expands to Europe and tries to block Chinese sensitive content ...

I'll tell you what will happen ...

It will fail right from the start.

I suspect it will primarily target foreign Chinese and fellow Asians, I don't really see any added value vis-a-vis the overpowering service plurality of Google.
