My client's Bangkok team is looking for top quality passionate Hadoop Operations engineers to test, deploy and manage their next generation Hadoop platform. They have multiple clusters spanning multiple data centres that are already handling millions of writes per second with petabytes of data and growing at an exponential rate.

Their systems scale across multiple data centers, totaling a few million writes per second and managing petabytes of data. They deal with problems from real-time data-ingestion, replication, enrichment, storage and analytics. They are not just using Big Data technologies, they are pushing them to the edge.

This company is the largest and fastest growing online hotel booking platform in Asia and are part of the largest online travel company in the world. They have the dynamism and short chain of command of a startup and the capital of a blue-chip to make things happen. In this competitive world of online travel agencies, finding even the slightest advantage in the data can make or break a company. That is why they put data systems in their top priorities.

While they are proud of what they've built so far, there is still a long way to go to fulfill their vision of data. They are looking for people who are as excited about data technology as they are, to join their fight. You can be part of designing, building, deploying (and probably debugging) products across all aspects of their core data platform products.


  • Manage, adminster, troubleshoot and grow multiple Hadoop clusters
