We innovate through a culture of experimentation and ownership, enabling our customers to experience the world. 


Get to Know our Team:  

The Data department oversees all of Agoda’s data-related requirements. Our ultimate goal is to enable and increase the use of data in the company through creative approaches and the implementation of powerful resources such as operational and analytical databases, queue systems, BI tools, and data science technology. We hire the brightest minds from around the world to take on this challenge and equip them with the knowledge and tools that contribute to their personal growth and success while supporting our company’s culture of diversity and experimentation. The role the Data team plays at Agoda is critical as business users, product managers, engineers, and many others rely on us to empower their decision making. We are equally dedicated to our customers by improving their search experience with faster results and protecting them from any fraudulent activities. Data is interesting only when you have enough of it, and we have plenty. This is what drives up the challenge as part of the Data department, but also the reward. 


The Opportunity: 

Join us in the team that handles our Data Lake, a crucial platform that serves a wide range of business critical needs and applications... from being used to train ML models for user-facing applications, to enabling reporting and monitoring, to empowering Product Owners to do research and experimentation hypothesis…. The data lake is the very heart of our data-driven culture and spans hundreds of servers across multiple data centers at tens of PB scale.

If you are one of those people that don’t want to “just manage” and still excited about building things along with building teams, you will fit very well here.

  • Drive design, architecture and development of Agoda’s next generation Data Lake

What you'll Need to Succeed: 

  • 4+years’ experience in Administering large (PB scale) Hadoop Cluster Deployments 
  • At least 2years’ experience in a leadership/influencer position: manager or architect 
  • Good to Expert level knowledge of Linux

  • Solid Coder with software development experienceagainst a mix of the above-mentioned technologies we love
