About the Job

Position Description


There are very few places, if any, where you can bridge physical and digital experiences for hundreds of millions of users. Here in the store-services team at Walmart Labs, we build the tools that bring the shopping experience in our stores to par with (or even better than) the experience of shopping online. Yes, finding a pair of shoe laces at a large super-center can be challenging or checkout at a cashier might take a while. But, these are all opportunities that can be addressed with cool technology solutions, often involving mobile apps. That is our focus in the store-services team. Our work impacts customers' daily lives. If enhancing real-world experiences with technology is your passion, keep on reading!
