Agoda is the largest and fastest growing online hotel booking platform in Asia. And as a Booking Holdings (BKNG) company, we are part of the largest online travel company in the world. We have the dynamism and short chain of command of a startup and the capital to make things happen.
Our Bangkok team is looking for top quality passionate machine learning specialists to lead teams of smart engineers and guide them across our business domains.
Why Machine Learning in Agoda?
In Agoda we adopt a data-centric approach to solve almost all business problems. We build real-time machine learning 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.
This is a unique combination of hard-core engineering challenges (scalability, performance, sometimes really low-level tuning) and complex machine learning algorithms.
