Jimmy O Yang Silicon Valley

Yang was cast as Jian-Yang, a shady app developer living in Erlich Bachman’s Hacker Hostel and business incubator, Aviato in the American comedy television series Silicon Valley.


Erlich took a particular interest in him, amid the minor contact difficulties of the two. It’s a recurring character. He is the only resident incubator not involved with Pied Piper. Yang is a Mandarin-speaking Chinese guy seen in his late teens to mid-twenties. During his stay at Erlich’s Hack Hostel, he created an app that can find the least crowded playgrounds so that parents can take their children to these suitable places.

He was found to smoke in the Raviga premises after his pitch, as his app was soon to obtain seed funding, and he smokes only for celebration purposes. Inadvertently, Erlich exposed California squatters’ rights, barring them from eviction, and supplying him with free accommodation for up to a year. He now lives in the same house where Erlich Bachman lived in Tibet, China using Bachman’s identity. He worked mainly as a personal assistant until Erlich no longer wanted his services and attempted to deport him.
