We're Hiring Data Scientist / Security Expert! Have you ever used Machine Learning to solve Security issues? This is an opportunity to work at a scale very few companies can match in the heart of Asia, Bangkok, Thailand - full relocation and visa sponsorship available.

Our client is seeking the best in the market and is offering a very attractive compensation package.

This is what we need you to do:

  • Be a world-class hands-on deploy master
  • Be vigilant and keep the bad guys away using state of the art tools
  • Optimizer by trade
  • Ask the right questions (and answer them!)

This is what we need you to be:

  • A coder, a data monger, and a statistics/machine learning expert (at least two years of experience is necessary; 5 years is preferable).
  • Practitioner with a heart of a theoretician. A solid personal ML education plan is a major plus.
  • An academic quantitative degree, preferably a PhD (not a must but a big plus).
  • A good knowledge of what's 'Under the hood' of statistical methods.
  • Did we mention coding? (Python, R, Scala, …)
  • Experience in modeling and solving fraud detection problems or security problems using ML. Some related buzz phrase: anomaly detection; class imbalance; phishing; bots detection; spam.
  • Nice to have: SQL, humor, blogging, Kaggle, online learning.
  • Willing to relocate to Bangkok, Thailand

Our client:

This role is for one of the largest and fastest growing online hotel booking platform in Asia. As well as being 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 to make things happen. What's stopping you from getting in touch?

Bangkok: While it's 30°+ outside, our engineers don't sweat, knowing they have the coolest jobs out there. Working in one of the largest international Internet employers headquartered in Asia, your work has an impact on what they do around the globe.

They move fast - why wait ages to see your ideas go live? Work on tough challenges, safe in the knowledge that you are surrounded by people as smart as you are (if not smarter!) to help solve them. And while we're on the subject, your colleagues come from over 65 countries: It's an incredible technical creative melting pot.

Technology is not just what they do - it's at the heart of who they are. Our client puts cutting-edge technology in your hands so you can help them change the way people run their lives. They want you to come to Bangkok so they can get there - and get your career going places, too.

Maintaining this growth requires an incredible amount of data, a superior IT infrastructure, and world class talent to bring it all together. Are you ready to join them?
