@WalmartLabs is looking for a Head of Vertical Product Management to lead our digital efforts in the Professional & Enthusiast (P&E) and Entertainment verticals. In this role, you will define and deliver a vision for highly differentiated digital shopping experiences for the P&E and Entertainment categories, which include sporting goods, outdoor, automotive, electronics and toys, just to name a few. Reporting to the VP of Product, Vertical Experiences, this is an opportunity to play a leadership role in evolving two strategic eCommerce categories for the world’s largest retailer - and #1 company on the Fortune 500 - capitalizing on Walmart’s unique physical and digital assets.

As the digital Product leader for these Verticals, you will gain a deep understanding of Walmart eCommerce, end to end - from our web and native app experiences, to how we manage and fulfill orders after our customers checkout, to how transactional and behavioral data flows through our systems, informing how we improve overall service to our customers. Only after gaining this understanding will you be able to bring coherence and cohesion to the end to end customer experience through the various teams that you both manage and partner with.

You will attract, hire, develop and lead a team of highly talented and motivated Product Managers, through demonstrated people and product leadership skills, while you also serve as the direct partner for our world-class Retail, Marketing, Operations, Design, Analytics and Technology leadership in crafting and executing on the larger business strategy. You will foster teamwork and collaboration amongst the cross-functional team, ultimately enabling them to efficiently execute against the vision and strategy.

You will encourage your team to quickly prototype and seek customer feedback to validate ideas. You must thrive in the creative process and be deeply analytical to make difficult decisions based on data.

You will work with talented engineering, design and analytics partners, and will develop great relationships with these partners to ensure that we build lean and scalable features with clear intent and at high velocity. You will be a master of identifying customer problems along the buying journey, and will partner with your team to leverage the latest technologies which help you most efficiently and effectively deliver solutions to these problems, helping our customers to Save Money, and Live Better.

You will work with senior business stakeholders to understand our business goals, and to ensure that the P&E and Entertainment product roadmap delivers great business value in addition to constantly improving the customer experience.

And at the end of the day, you will be responsible for the overall quality of the experience you and your teams ship. Additional responsibilities include:

• Work constantly to align the product roadmap with our business strategy
• Collaborate and drive internal stakeholders to consensus on what to build
• Demonstrate exceptional interpersonal and communication skills
• Develop and champion a product vision and product strategy
• Navigate and negotiate through complex business & technology relationships
• Make product decisions based on data and metrics, and most importantly, customer feedback
• Define and influence product designs and overall user experience
• Serve as a thought leader within the team and the broader enterprise

Minimum Qualifications

• 10+ years of experience in eCommerce product management, management consulting, or related field.
• 7+ years supervisory experience.
• MBA or Bachelor's degree in Business Administration, Computer Science, Engineering, or related field

Preferred Qualifications

•Impeccable attention to detail. You are involved in all aspects of the product lifecycle, and feel strongly compelled to help improve the product and process along the way.
•Clear communication skills. You can inspire with your ability to articulate customer problems and your product vision for solving them. You cater your communication style to meet your audience where they are. Your messaging is on point – not too simple, nor too complex.
•Ability to work effectively across a large organization to drive Product forward. You thrive in environments with diverse and challenging viewpoints, where you can effectively leverage your relationship-building and data-driven communication and decision making skills.
•Strong problem-solving skills. Helping customers Save Money so they can Live Better - at Walmart scale - requires unique solutions to long-standing problems. Solutions which are often not obvious. You invest in deeply understanding customer problems, and focus your team’s effort on delivering elegant and simple features that solve those problems holistically.
•KPI-focused. You focus on the metrics that matter, and are constantly evaluating whether the cross-functional team’s activities are aligned with moving your KPIs.
•You possess a healthy balance of intellectual curiosity, common sense, and execution rigor. Success in our environment will require you to draw upon each throughout the day.
•Finally, you have a deep sense of mission for making Walmart a powerful solution for our customers and a strong competitor in the marketplace
