When you combine our unmatched assets in retail with our commitment to building best-in-class eCommerce capabilities, we’re positioned to serve customers in ways no one else can.

@WalmartLabs

@WalmartLabs is the technical powerhouse behind Walmart Global eCommerce, based in the Silicon Valley and internationally. We employ big data at scale, from machine learning, data mining and optimization algorithms to modeling and analyzing massive flows of data from online, social, mobile and offline commerce. Our engineers operate in a true DevOps culture, using our own open source tools create the framework for building applications and services. Deployment is automated and accelerated through our open cloud solution. This makes us incredibly nimble and able to adjust to our global customers.  

Walmart.com

As the online channel for Walmart in the U.S., we’re making the customer experience easier, more accessible, and more relevant for millions of people. Leveraging our combination of online, mobile and stores, we’re setting an expansive agenda for our second decade online and offering our customers a seamless experience anytime, anywhere.

SamsClub.com

 With more than 600 Sam’s Club locations, we offer over 47 million customers more of what they love for less. Our web-based platform is a big part of that growth. The SamsClub.com team is focused on creating the in-store experience online. This is a big job! We’re solution seekers and innovators inspired by a commitment to provide small businesses and customers increased access and greater value. The work is challenging and it’s also crazy rewarding.

VUDU

VUDU provides high-quality streaming service and access to the latest TV and movie content – often while still in theaters so there’s no more waiting for years to see your favorite films. The VUDU team includes experts in engineering, operations, product management, design, marketing, and customer service, working together to design, build, and deliver the best streaming experience across hundreds of platforms – from mobile to smart TV.

Today, the great minds at Walmart eCommerce are busy making breakthroughs in these areas:

Mobile

With In-Store Mode, our app adapts to the store where the customer is shopping, providing local ads, product location, price scanning and more. And our test of “Scan and Go” lets customers use their mobile phone to check out as they shop. Join us in developing immersive experiences like these for Android and iOS smartphones and tablets.

Social Shopping

Get on the Shelf, a crowd-sourcing contest, or the Trending Now page are changing the way the world shops.

Spark Studio integrates popular Walmart.com pins from Pinterest to create a discovery shopping experience on Walmart.com. Shoppers inspire each other by browsing and pinning products by category like brands, color, and top-pinned. Select a pin to get more information, re-pin it, rate or review it, or buy it from Walmart.com.

Help us design and build the inventive apps our customers use to easily find products and share their interests.

Next Generation Services and Platform

Using big data platforms that allow us to process multi-terabytes of fresh data and petabytes of historical data, we’re doing things like providing personalized shopping experiences to the user—serving the right recommendation at the right time with the right context. Our Platform team is all about frameworks that operate in a high-scale, distributed, multi-tenancy environment. We focus on Platform components from the ground up, including distributed computing, IaaS, PaaS, service-oriented architectures, and much more.

    process took a long time, but it's understandable for a company this size. If it's a new position, they have to post it two weeks internally before publishing to the public to allow priority for existing employees.
