Here's a list of Hadoop jobs, you can check these over to see what requirements come with each job.

Sure it is ok, but you are probably going to be looked at less favorably than someone with demonstrated Hadoop experience. Also, there are a range of Hadoop positions, and the requirements for a data architect are going to be quite different than those for a software developer. Since it sounds like you already have a couple of years experience working with relational databases, that should make it easier to get your foot in the door. I think it will be somewhat challenging to find something above a junior level software engineer position until you have hands-on experience with Hadoop implementation and operation.
