Job Description:

Here at Walmart, we're driven by an intellectual curiosity that keeps us on the cutting-edge of user design and a seamless customer experience. We're intrigued by the opportunity to engineer the most optimal approach that drives conversions and generates consumer loyalty across every touchpoint of the digital journey. As a Senior Engineer, you'll spend your days translating requirements into solutions, writing code, collaborating with cross-functional teams and providing us with the insights necessary to think beyond the status quo. You'll oversee small project teams consisting of other engineers who will look to you as a trusted advisor, a subject matter expert who provides guidance and the right tools to get the job done. Now, imagine doing all the above for the world's largest retailer. That's the Walmart experience. Intrigued? Responsibilities: We need help in solving hard engineering and computer science problems for a world class eCommerce platform. Your main goals are to: Power Walmart inventory system, handling billions of events daily. Maximize on-site availability while minimizing reject rates due to lack of inventory. Give more insight to our marketing and operations teams via more historical data and improved analytics. Unify inventory management responsibilities currently spread across multiple systems and teams. Debug production issues with other teams across services and multiple levels of the stack. Requirements: Top-notch programming skills, with an interest in functional programming languages. We use Java and F# right now. Solid understanding of designing, developing and supporting large scale, cloud based distributed systems. Exposure to event based and asynchronous processing. Strong operational excellence and testing skills. Someone who values automation. We don't like solving the same problem manually over and over. Experience working with distributed databases (Cosmos/Cassanda/etc) Nice to Have: Fluent in a few programming languages, functional, dynamic and static. Solid understanding of how to use data structures to solve problems optimally. Good understanding of event-driven systems. Experience with Apache Kafka or similar streaming platform. Understands DevOps: how to support large scale distributed systems, how to prioritize and escalate issues. Benefits & Perks: Beyond competitive pay, you can receive incentive awards for your performance. Other great perks include 401(k) match, stock purchase plan, paid maternity and parental leave, PTO, multiple health plans, and much more. About The Team Our high-volume inventory system tracks the available quantities of all our items of sale, known as stock-keeping units (SKUs). We cover Walmart owned warehouses and all our partner merchant warehouses, along with quantities reserved from in-flight orders. Customers expect that the availability of an item for sale is a true and accurate representation of what that retailer can fulfill. The Unified Inventory system's purpose is to ensure that this expectation is met. As Walmart builds deeper and richer digital experiences with its customers, this expectation becomes more complex, and it is the role of the Unified Inventory team to abstract away this complexity for downstream systems. Our Engineers get challenged building systems which handle billions of events daily. The platform is an event driven (event sourced) system built largely in .NET and Java and designed to run in the cloud (Azure) via a microservice architecture. The bulk of backend code is written in Java and F# (transitioning to Java now) and our system of record is an event-sourced system (essentially a log of all actions on the platform). Equal Opportunity Employer Walmart, Inc. is an Equal Opportunity Employer - By Choice. We believe we are best equipped to help our associates, customers, and the communities we serve live better when we really know them. That means understanding, respecting, and valuing diversity- unique styles, experiences, identities, ideas, and opinions - while being inclusive of all people. About Global Tech Imagine working in an environment where one line of code can make life easier for hundreds of millions of people and put a smile on their face. That's what we do at Walmart Global Tech. We're a team of 15,000 software engineers, data scientists and service professionals within Walmart, the world's largest retailer, delivering innovations that improve how our customers shop and empower our 2.2 million associates. To others, innovation looks like an app, service, or some code, but Walmart has always been about people. People are why we innovate, and people power our innovations. Being human-led is our true disruption. We're virtual --- Working virtually this year has helped us make quicker decisions, remove location barriers across our global team, be more flexible in our personal lives and spend less time commuting. Today, we are reimagining the tech workplace of the future by making a permanent transition to virtual work for most of our team. Of course, being together in person is an important part of our culture and shared success. We'll collaborate in person at a regular cadence and with purpose.
