Increasing the energy efficiency and reducing emissions across our facilities. Meeting our 2040 Zero Emissions goal, including transitioning our fleet to zero emissions vehicles.

We are a team of seasoned energy veterans dedicated to realizing Walmart’s regenerative commitments and leveraging Walmart’s platform to support the decarbonization of our customers, associates, communities and suppliers.  Because energy touches everything, we work across Walmart, particularly real estate, facilities, supply chain, network design, transportation and customer experience. We have come from across Walmart, utilities, developers, banking, clean energy consulting and environmental consulting. 

The Job

You will play a critical role in shaping the approach to HVAC/R design in Walmart’s facilities. This position requires a strategic thinker with a strong foundation in HVAC/R design and construction, storytelling and project management skills, and the ability to lead cross-functional teams in engineering and production. This position will be an individual contributor.

  • Lead cross-functional working teams made of internal and external stakeholders to design lean and integrated HVAC/R systems
  • Develop energy and carbon emissions reduction programs with associated value proposition (cost savings, total cost of ownership, return on investment, etc)
  • Spearhead project and/or process management/improvement activities
  • Manage the reduction and reporting of emissions and other metrics related to HVAC/R systems
  • Support renewable energy opportunities and initiatives as part of decarbonization strategy
  • Collaborate with Tech, Product and Design teams to develop data tools and resources
  • Drive the execution of multiple business plans and projects by identifying customer and operational needs; developing and communicating business plans and priorities; removing barriers and obstacles that impact performance; providing resources
  • Develop contingency plans; and demonstrating adaptability and supporting continuous learning
  • Ensure business needs are being met by evaluating the ongoing effectiveness of current plans, programs, and initiatives; consulting with business partners, managers, co-workers, or other key stakeholders

You’ll make an impact by…

  • Strategize: You will develop the strategy to best serve our internal stakeholders through a period of transformation. You will provide insightful, data-driven strategic recommendations to leadership, based on strategic insights, analysis, experience and technical acumen.
  • Build: You will develop and lead multiple workstream opportunities. You will create the roadmap for new processes and value capture projects, determining how to invest resources to achieve desired outcomes.
  • Execute: You want to get to the right level of detail, and scale. You will lead the execution of efficiency and value creation opportunities (metrics, goals, roadmaps).
  • Collaborate: You value partnerships, and will excel at working across Merchandising, Product Development, Supply Chain, and more to bring new products and services to market.
  • Impact through influence: You will drive action by other teams by convincing leaders of the positive impact of your ideas or projects.
  • Communicate: prepare and deliver executive-level presentations to seek leadership buy-in as well as share strategic priorities.

You’ll sweep us off our feet if you…

  • You have strong analytical skills with an engineering, HVAC/R and/or controls background
  • You have shepherded building energy savings measures from concept or design through the construction phase and post-occupancy periods
