About the Role 

We are looking for a hands-on Development Manager who has unique knowledge and abilities to contribute to our highly scaled mobile applications.  You must be a strong leader who can guide our staff beyond our already high standards of engineering to the next level.   

The development manager role at Agoda is one of the most significant and challenging roles at the company. The right candidate is both extremely hands on – technically excellent, with solid engineering principles – and exhibits strong leadership and people development skills. We are looking for world class development managers to lead one or more of our engineering teams.  

The hands-on part of the job is fundamental, and most of our development managers are reviewing code and giving expert level coaching and guidance to their engineers.  It's important to have a love of engineering and a passion for building things elegantly and at scale. Staying in touch with where the industry is going is crucial, and it’s important to have strong opinions about how systems should be architected, engineered, and maintained. Our company believes in full stack engineering: you should have solid experience in all parts of the technology stack: infrastructure, client side, back-end, performance, data, and others.  

Despite our investment and belief in technology, people are still our greatest asset. The right candidate will have a keen interest in developing people: inspiring those around them so they can achieve their potential. Being able to hire A-players such as yourself from outside and integrating them into the business will also be important.  


  • Maintain ownership and responsibility of mission critical systems.  

  • Guide one or more Agile teams to success. 

  • Stay on the leading edge of technical know-how, industry trends, management approaches, and create an environment of always learning and always innovating. 

  • Get involved with full stack engineering and guide server, client, and infrastructure technical staff to the best solution. 

  • Be in charge of technical direction that both serve existing business needs and create new business opportunities. 

  • Attract top talent, create and refine the team to scale, and make sure our engineers and technical staff develop their careers by growing technically and in mentor, management, and leadership characteristics. 

  • Directly manage between 5 and 10 technology professionals and be responsible for their performance at the company. 

If you feel you are the right candidate get in touch! Agoda is full of like-minded people who demand success, reach for it, and succeed!  

This job is based in Bangkok and would require you to join our Bangkok office. We welcome both local and international applications for this role. Full visa sponsorship and relocation assistance available. 

Agoda is an equal opportunity employer and values diversity. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status or disability status.
