Why Join Agoda?
Our Bangkok team is looking for top quality passionate engineers to build products across our next gen data platform products.
Our systems scale across a multitude of data centers, totaling a few million writes per second and managing petabytes of data. We deal with problems from real-time data-ingestion, replication, enrichment, storage and analytics. We are not just using Big Data technologies; we are pushing them to the edge.
Why Agoda Data Pipeline Team?
Join us in the team that handles the data pipeline infrastructure that is the core backbone for all Data Event Logging within Agoda and is crucial to real time monitoring of all Agoda Systems across geographically distributed Data Centers.
The always-on data pipeline feeds logs, events, metrics into Hadoop, ElasticSearch, Spark Clusters and other distributed systems that drives key business processes such as Data Driven Business Intelligence, NRT Monitoring, A/B Testing, Centralized Application Logging and Stream Processing to name a few.
Working on distributed systems spanning multiple data centers, thousands of servers and hundreds of billions of messages a day. Ensuring data quality, data integrity and data accuracy is a core part of our identity. You will be eager to solve problems that come from managing, and making sense of large amounts of data. Some of the things you’ll get to work on include schema validation, real-time data-ingestion, cross data center replication, enrichment, storage and analytics of the data flow.
