It wouldn't be impossible, but why hire the white guy when you can get a local serf to do your work for 18k a month, 12 hours a day? You'd be much better off to work overseas and then get posted to Taiwan if you wanted to work in some IT/computer related job.

And even my first full-time programming job here in like 2004, when I was really a pretty crap developer, paid ~75k and had sensible hours.
The local guys earning 20 or 30k a month are earning that because it's what they're worth, frankly.
Go to tech and entrepreneurial meetups, have some side projects of your own and some portfolio work, and work hard at developing a serious specialty, and I think there's a reasonable chance of getting worthwhile work.

Actually working for a smaller company is what I would prefer because it allows for better teamwork,
and more flexibility while developing projects.
Where do those companies usually post job offers?
I'm guessing I'd just have to Google around or physically go there, but if you have any tips let me know.
