Job Description

About Agoda 

Agoda is an online travel booking platform for accommodation, flights, and more. We build and deploy cutting edge technology that connects travelers with more than 2.5 million accommodations globally. Based in Asia and part of Booking Holdings, our 4,000+ talents coming from 90+ different nationalities foster a work environment rich in diversity, creativity, and collaboration. We innovate through a culture of experimentation and ownership, enabling our customers to experience the world.  

Get to Know our Team: 

In Agoda’s Back End Engineering department, we build the scalable, fault-tolerant systems and APIs that host our core business logic. Our systems cover all major areas of our business: inventory and pricing, product information, customer data, communications, partner data, booking systems, payments, and more. These mission-critical systems change frequently with dozens of releases per day, so we must employ state-of-the-art CI/CD and testing techniques in order to make sure everything works without any downtime. We also ensure that our systems are self-healing, responding gracefully to extreme loads or unexpected input. In order to accomplish this, we use state-of-the-art languages like Scala and C#, data technologies like Kafka and Spark, and agile development practices. Most importantly though, we hire great people from all around the world and empower them to be successful. Whether it’s building new projects like Flights and Packages or reimagining our existing business, you’ll make a big impact as part of the Back End Engineering team. 

The Opportunity:

You might call yourself “full stack” or "back end" or you might consider yourself an authority in a certain field, but you will have a keen interest in how the different systems work together.

We'd love to hear from you if you are experienced in any of the technologies we work with (note - we are not looking for you to have them all). We are interested in speaking to persons of any level from individuals just starting their IT careers to experts in their field.

In this Role, you'll get to: 

  • A chance to contribute to a top-notch codebase and work on scalable, fault-tolerant systems and APIs that serve millions of requests
  • You will use state-of-the-art languages like Scala and C#, data technologies like Kafka and Spark, and agile development practices
  • You must employ state-of-the-art CI/CD and testing techniques in order to make sure everything works without any downtime
  • Think about the full life cycle of our products, and not just about a single piece of code - from product requirements, technology selection to coding standards, agile development, testing, deployment and monitoring

What you'll Need to Succeed:

  • Studying for a Bachelor’s or Master’s Degree in Computer Science or any related fields
  • Familiar with basics of Object-oriented and/or Functional programming
  • Familiar with relational and/or non-relational databases
  • Good English communication skill
  • Ready to learn fast

It's Great if you have:

  • Practical knowledge with Scala, C# or Java
  • You have built some back-end applications and services. You understand the basics of system scaling
  • Familiar with data platforms like MS SQL, Cassandra or Hadoop. You understand that different applications have different data requirements
  • Core engineering infrastructure tools like Git for source control, TeamCity for Continuous Integration and Puppet for deployment

Employment at Agoda is based solely on a person's merit and qualifications.
