What you'll do

At Walmart, we pride ourselves for knowing our associates and connecting with them. We interact with our associates across more capacities than any company in the world – starting with the 6 million applicants for Walmart US alone. Because we want to provide the best opportunities for our associates to learn, grow and thrive, we gather direct feedback throughout their employment life cycle to understand what our associates think is working and what isn’t at each and every stage of that journey. We use touch points to help deliver the best working experience both digitally and physically.

We leverage the power of Big Data, leading edge research technology, and the best talent in the industry to define and design how our company captures and delivers research data to the business. We are data scientists, choice architects, predictive modelers, and research gurus that work together to uncover the “why’s” behind behavior. As a Senior Manager of Data Science and Research, you will have an opportunity to initiate innovative research techniques at scale, and leverage experiment, big data and analytics to influence behavior change.
