About the Team
As a part of the Intl. Emerging Tech Team, you will work with stakeholders in various parts of the business (merchandising, supply chain, store operations, eCom, etc.) to define their true problems and work with the Product & Engineering teams to build emerging tech systems to solve them. You will think constantly about the potential futures, the implications for Walmart, the right strategy, and rally the organization to build/implement technology.
About the Role
As a Lead Design Researcher, you will represent the perspective of our customers and associates to help support our strategic vision. If you are motivated to help teams understand complex areas of our business, being a Lead Design Researcher could be the fit you’ve been looking for. Research activities will span from generative work (fieldwork, development of customer models, archetype building, UX) to evaluative work (usability studies, user testing, concept evaluation). Research studies will vary in scope from understanding underlying motivations and behaviors to understanding how customer dialects vary across regions and modalities.
You will help build industry-defining reusable customer and partner-facing services and products to drive differentiated experiences and revenue. You will be in the unique position to be of service to both our customers and our associates as a member of this organization supporting all international segments of Walmart. If you are the type of person who feels a personal stake in everything that you work on, has a strong sense of ownership, enjoys solving complex problems, has a passion for technology, knows how to foster strong relationships and build trust, and works for the success of the entire team - then our Lead Design Researcher – International Emerging Tech could be for you.
