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 personalising, 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 smart IT/Engineering graduates 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.
You will have real aptitude and interest for programming, architecture, scalability, distributed technologies. 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 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.
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 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.
