You can write Android apps at a number of companies, but the opportunity to have a positive impact on the lives of millions of people is a rare one. Here in the Omni-channel team at WalmartLabs, we build the tools that bring the experience of shopping in our stores on par with (and make it even better than) the experience of shopping online.

If you are as passionate as we are about enhancing real-world experiences through the use of technology, get in touch!

Our products include Walmart Pay, Scan & Go, Store Pickup, Savings Catcher, and more. We are data-driven. We constantly improve our products based on user data and feedback. Moreover, we experiment with new features and technologies and scale successful products rapidly. Our work includes challenges in the areas of security, geolocation, payments, scalability and architecture.

Responsibilities:
• Design and implement sophisticated features in Walmart Android applications
• Work closely with product and design teams to optimize the experience for the Android platform
• Analyze and optimize Android applications
• Experiment with new technologies and features and build quick prototypes

Minimum Qualifications

• BS degree in Computer Science or related field
• Software development experience in Java
• Experience with Android application development using Android SDK
• Experience designing REST APIs and consuming RESTful services
