There are no US Social Security taxes for you.

As an employee, Social Security and Medicare taxes are charged to the employer.  Because you were not performing the work in the United States, the employer is not subject to those rules.

Are you an employee?  Or are you an Independent Contractor?
Was any of the work performed in the United States?

I am applying for a job as USA sales manager for a Chinese electronics company, they currently have no one working here. How do I get paid from there and what are the issues?
