Share this article:

Welcome to the May installment of Life at Agoda Highlights! In this blog series, we’ll take you inside Agoda to see what’s happening in our offices each month.

This month, we welcomed our summer intern cohort and new hires, showcased our AI innovation, grew our tech community, and more. Read on for all the details!

Sharing our AI journey

This month, Agoda was one of five companies in Thailand to showcase our AI innovation with Microsoft solutions at Microsoft Build: AI Day. Our Director of Engineering, Shaun Sit, shared Agoda’s approaches and journey with the audience in Bangkok.

Onboarding our 2024 interns

Agoda’s Campus Team started the 2024 internship season with Agoda 101: Intern Onboarding Day, an event for the intern cohort to connect and prepare for a summer filled with new learnings. Our CEO, Omri Morgenshtern, was there to share our vision and goals, along with Kris Suebjaklap, VP of Marketing, who introduced the world of Agoda AI.

Hosting the Bangkok JavaScript community

This month, the Agoda Bangkok office hosted BKK.JS#20, a JavaScript meetup by Creatorsgarten, with talks on Astro JS, Three.js, Web App Optimization at EarnIn, and Rebuilding Your Mental Model of JavaScript. At the afterparty, Code in the Wind#2, web developers and frontend enthusiasts had the opportunity to connect, share learnings, and participate in a friendly coding challenge using HTML, CSS, and Tailwind CSS.

Giving back as a team

Have you ever heard of plogging? Originating in Sweden, this movement combines jogging with picking up litter. This month, Agodans went plogging at Seoul Forest and Yeouido Saetgang Eco Park and enjoyed the fresh air as they worked to clean up the community. In Thailand, Agodans worked with Paper Ranger to create notebooks for disadvantaged children and volunteered at the Royal Thai Navy Sea Turtle Conservation Center. Japan Agodans took part in beach cleaning and city flower planting, and Budapest volunteers helped clean up Margaret Island.

Recognizing our Supply All-Stars

Based in 39 locations, Agoda’s Supply team supports millions of accommodation and supplier partners through collaboration and data-backed decisions. Our annual Reward Trip recognizes the team’s high performers, who truly embody the spirit of Agoda’s values. This month, we wrapped up the 2024 edition of the trip, with winners traveling to either Singapore for Bangkok for three immersive days of learning and connecting with Supply leaders and peers.

Celebrating the Dragon Boat Festival

Ahead of the Dragon Boat Festival, the Agoda Shanghai office celebrated this traditional Chinese holiday with delicious food and gift packages.

Welcoming our new hires

Agoda is growing! As our newest Agodans begin their best journey at Agoda, we hosted a New Hire social event to welcome them to the team. Held throughout the year, these events are a chance for new joiners to get to know one another, learn about the resources we offer, and find a supportive community to share experiences with.
