What you'll do...

About Store No8

We are the incubation arm of Walmart. Store No8 was formed in 2017 as part of Walmart’s larger innovation mission to shape the future of commerce. We pursue big ideas and take risks by stepping outside of Walmart’s core business to focus on leapfrog capabilities across conversational commerce, mixed reality, in-store digitization, and more. Our ultimate goal: fuel Walmart’s core business, create new operational efficiencies, and unlock amazing experiences for our customers in the long-term.

This team within Store Nº8 is helping us understand everything we can about our inventory, in real-time – both what it is and where it is so we are always in-stock and able to deliver on customer needs. 

About the Role

As a Senior Manager, Software Engineering for one of our Store Nº8’s portfolio companies, you will report directly to the Head of Engineering and lead a small team of engineers, providing direction and leadership for products that will transform the future of retail shopping. As a people leader, you will need the ability to inspire, challenge, and give direction to the associates on your team while embracing a servant-style leadership approach. You will serve those that report to you, remove obstacles for them, champion them, and encourage them to grow in their careers and personal growth. As a technical leader and manager, you will need solid machine learning and engineering skills.  Specialization in quantization of computer vision models and performing inference on low powered devices such as development boards or mobile phones is essential.  Working in a fast-paced environment, you will leverage your natural curiosity and inventive problem-solving talents to anticipate the needs of our customers before they walk in the door.  You’ll be pioneering technologies that reinvent the customer and associate experience, new ways of working, and new ways of shopping.

What You’ll Do

  • Lead and manage a newly created team of engineers across multiple locations who will have significant opportunity to make an impact by prototyping next generation online and in-store inventory experiences
  • Lead discovery phases to come up with high level designs, partnering with product management to forecast business and operational issues (impact, criticality, root cause)
  • Define the team strategy and roadmap for one or more products. Design, prototype and build new and innovative experiences that leverage the capabilities of computer vision.
  • Drive data driven decisions across the technical landscape, business strategy and customer needs to create new concepts for complex systems.
  • Develop innovation strategies, processes and best practices by leading with internal technical teams and partnering with cross functional teams; developing assessments of key opportunities, documenting, communicating with and influencing decision-makers and executives within the organization; and resolving technology differences across teams through informed discussions.

What You’ll Need

  • 3+ years’ experience leading and managing interdisciplinary technical teams with cutting edge technologies
  • 6+ years’ experience with software engineering, machine learning, computer vision and agile software development preferably with image processing, sensors and/or cameras
  • Python, Java, Kotlin, and/or C++
  • Experience with three or more of the following frameworks/libraries: PyTorch, OpenCV, Keras, TensorFlow, Cuda, SciPy, NumPy, BoofCV
  • Experience with low powered devices such as development boards: raspberry pi, Arduino, Coral, Jetson, etc. or mobile phones.
  • Experience working in small teams/incubators
