Are you looking for a role with Real big data, working on systems that consume and generate 100’s of Billions of events per day? Serving Machine Learning models in real time on 1000’s of servers? 

We are looking for top notch development managers to lead the teams of our data services. We use big data and ML for most of our applications - fraud, recommendation, marketing, ranking, supply management and many more. Each of these bring their own challenges of combining a distributed, multi-dc, scalable and performant solution with the needs of modern cutting edge algorithms (such as deep learning). 

You will manage a team of engineers in joint scrums with the best data scientists around to achieve these goals and since Agoda is the fastest growing travel company in the world you can imagine the challenges of tomorrow will be even more demanding. 

Our ideal candidates are experienced agile development managers who master technology to the point where you can make a trade off and decide when to use which technology, and push our platform forward. At the same time, also have solid agile experience to deliver at rapid pace.  

We believe that managers should be professionals at technology, should be able to jump in to any project and understand the bits & bolts of the technologies their teams use. If you are one of those people that don’t want to “just manage” and still excited about building things along with building teams, you will fit here very well.
