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 Software Engineer III for one of our Store Nº8’s portfolio companies, you will report directly to the Head of Engineering and work in a small team of engineers, providing direction and leadership for products that will transform the future of retail shopping. This role requires you to have solid mobile engineering skills.  Specialization in mobile cameras, camera integrations, or video processing on 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.

If you are motivated by complex, purposeful challenges, a Staff Mobile Engineer role within the Store Nº8 portfolio could be the fit you’ve been looking for.
