Please note this role is based in Bangkok, Thailand – but very happy to hear from candidates willing to relocate.
Agoda is one of the leading technology companies, not only in the industry but the world. At no point do we wish do be limited by the technology. As such, the right candidate will be exposed to numerous innovative technologies (including, but not limited to, big data, NOSQL). Cutting edge projects around personalization, machine learning, natural language processing. The right candidate will also be exposed to creating scalable infrastructure and architecture ensuring products can go from a few thousand calls per second to tens of thousands without any downtime or degradation in customer experience.
We are looking for engineering experts to ensure our website is the best of its kind in the world. This role is twofold, but for both you will be a technical expert. Primarily show real strength in back-end engineering. You will have real prowess in programming, architecture, scalability, distributed technologies. An in-depth understanding of TCP/IP, HTTP and how the web works will be crucial. Expertise in distributed platforms here will be a major plus (examples, ElasticSearch, Cassandra, Hadoop, CouchDB etc). We would expect back-end role experience of some key projects, ability to explain and justify your architecture. Attention to server side performance, measurements, big data analysis will also be a significant part of this role.
Secondly, we would expect superb attention to detail of the performance of the web site on the browser. Familiarity and expertise in the latest technologies will be required. It is not enough to have a high-performing back-end but we absolutely must ensure the user has the best experience available. You will need to understand how the browser interprets the html, css, DOM etc. to produce pages that any user on any device will be able to interact and enjoy as soon as is possible.
Ultimately we are looking for real technologists who have a great passion for creating robust, scalable and reliable architectures to support a fantastic end product. We want innovative ideas on how to ensure we can save the customer that last 100 milliseconds, that we can process TB’s of data in minutes, or how to architect the server side to support tens of thousands of requests a second.
Candidates will receive good exposure to the business side, and be able to see and measure the true value of the work. Nothing is opaque here. We work in agile which for us does mean really focusing on business value as well as technological aptitude. Despite the success and size of the company we really operate with a start-up feel; you get to be part of choosing where and what you’re working on, the technologies and how we solve the business concerns.
Technologies of interest (we are not expecting you to have them all) :
- Java (or other JVM languages), C# is acceptable
- Solid experience with UNIX shell scripts and O/S
- Cassandra / ElasticSearch / Hadoop
- Knockout.js, Angular.js, Gulp.js
- LESS, SASS
- Memcached, Redis
- Postgres, SQL Server, MySql
At Agoda we believe that attitude, intelligence and Agoda DNA are crucial for success, more than just simply being older. If you feel that you have the smarts, the drive to be the best developer there is and are always focused on building the best product out there, then we would be delighted to hear from you.
- Good standard of English both written and spoken
Please note this role is open to both Thai and International candidates. Full visa and relocation package on offer.
