Data Applications Engineer (Big Data / Machine Learning)

Our Bangkok team is looking for top quality passionate engineers to build data applications across our business domains.

Why data application in Agoda?

In Agoda we adopt a data-centric approach to solve almost all business problems. We build real-time data applications to answer questions like ranking, recommendation, and how to serve prices most efficiently. Our systems scale across multiple data centers, handling a few hundred thousand requests per second, and respond within a few milliseconds. We also build machine learning jobs to do the heavy crunching.

This is a unique combination of hard-core engineering challenges (scalability, performance, sometimes really low-level tuning) and latest big data technology. This is also the best place to gain exposure to various business domains in the company.
