Division Summary

@WalmartLabs is the technical powerhouse behind Walmart Global eCommerce. 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. We don’t just engineer cool websites, mobile apps, and new services; we use our own open source tools to create the framework. Deployment is automated and accelerated through our open cloud platform. This makes us incredibly nimble and able to adjust in real-time to our global customers.

The Customer Experience team lives on the front line of e-commerce innovation.  This collaborative team, made up of engineering, UX, product management, along with web and technology evangelists, is rapidly iterating new products and site features at scale.  We deliver high performing solutions - from our next gen front-end platform (node.js and react.js) to our best-in-class backend payments platform which powers web, mobile and API solutions.  Continuous innovation and immediate feedback by billions of customers make this work incredibly exciting!


Position Summary

Walmart.com's new leadership are driving for data driven decision making across the entire organization. To support this transformation we have built a world-class Product Analytics group within the Product Management team. All the pieces are in place to drive an explosion in the volume of experiments we run to inform business decisions. Our experimentation platform and methodologies are highly developed but we want to continue to seek better ways to make inferences from our massive amounts of user and clickstream data. We need someone to help us navigate through the statistical research and help us find test design and analysis methods that could scale to deliver real business benefits.

We are looking for a professional statistician or economist - we hope you have a strong theoretical grounding - but more importantly a passion for applied research. You will be comfortable working at the intersection of statistics, causal inference and machine learning. Coupled with great business acumen and a thorough understanding of our business model you will be able to work both independently and with the wider internal and external scientific community to ensure we do not miss opportunities to improve our experimentation methods.

You are passionate about helping Walmart build, test and launch amazing product experiences by being a critical part of the best experimentation team on the planet!
