This is a huge but unknown population-migrant workers in factories along side China's giant cities. How are they using internet? What apps/brands/behaviors that they will prefer? What kind of IT technology can survive in this 300 million group of people?
With these questions, Jiang decided to disguise as a migrant worker for three months in over four cities, multiple factories, seeking the knowledge from this huge number of 300 million migrant workers, to live and eat with them, to understand what is the behind-the-scene stories.

Jiang starts his product manager career from basic operation. He firstly worked in the NetDragon, then root sculpture business, securities APP and financing service. To learn how factory workers use Internet, Jiang disguised as a migrant worker for three months in over four cities, seeking the opportunities from this huge market of 300 million migrant workers.
