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 Software 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?

  • Assists in providing guidance to small groups of 5 to 6 engineers, including offshore associates, for assigned Engineering projects by proving pertinent documents, directions, examples, and timeline.

  • Provides support to the business by responding to user questions, concerns, and issues (for example, technical feasibility, implementation strategies); researching and identifying needed solutions; determining implementation designs; providing guidance regarding implications of new and enhanced systems; identifying short and long term solutions; and directing users to appropriate contacts for issues outside of associate's domain.

  • Manages small to large-sized complex projects by reviewing project requirements; translating requirements into technical solutions; researching and identifying alternative solutions; determining needed solution based on return on investment and value add to the business; gathering requested information (for example, design documents, product requirements, wire frames); writing and developing code; conducting unit, integration and functional testing; communicating status and issues to team members and stakeholders; collaborating with project team and cross functional teams; identifying areas of opportunity; interpreting information and identifying a solution; ensuring solution is sustainable across implementation and use; troubleshooting open issues and bug-fixes; and ensuring on-time delivery and hand-offs.

  • Troubleshoots business and production issues by gathering information (for example, issue, impact, criticality, possible root cause); performing root cause analysis to reduce future issues; engaging support teams to assist in the resolution of issues; developing solutions; driving the development of an action plan; performing actions as designated in the plan; interpreting the results to determine further action; and completing online documentation.

  • Participates in the discovery phase of small to medium-sized projects to come up with high level design by partnering with the product management, project management, business, and user experience teams.

  • Demonstrates up-to-date expertise and applies this to the development, execution, and improvement of action plans by providing expert advice and guidance to others in the application of information and best practices; supporting and aligning efforts to meet customer and business needs; and building commitment for perspectives and rationales.

  • Provides and supports the implementation of business solutions by building relationships and partnerships with key stakeholders; identifying business needs; determining and carrying out necessary processes and practices; monitoring progress and results; recognizing and capitalizing on improvement opportunities; and adapting to competing demands, organizational changes, and new responsibilities.

  • Models compliance with company policies and procedures and supports company mission, values, and standards of ethics and integrity by incorporating these into the development and implementation of business plans; using the Open Door Policy; and demonstrating and assisting others with how to apply these in executing business processes and practices.

About You

You are a passionate front-end engineer who loves to code. You love to take ideas and build great products with JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. You know JavaScript is imperfect, but you embrace its functional side and genuinely enjoy coding with it. You might like to talk about obscure computer science topics, but really, you just want to write simple code and ship new products and features to customers (or improve existing ones).

You have an eye for design and user experience. You care about more than just the code. You care about the customer experience and help our customers make better decisions while shopping.

You love learning new things. You love researching new tech and driving forward with the implementation details. Your focus is on frontend JavaScript/TypeScript code, but you can dig in wherever needed. Node.js, GraphQL, NextJS Nx, build tools, shell scripts, you name it. If you don't already know it, you're ready to learn it.

You understand performance, A/B tests, web vitals, front end optimization and can write code to bring them to life too.

You love helping others. You love sharing knowledge with the rest of your team, building shared tooling for other engineers, giving back to the open-source community, and directly helping customers.

Things You will do

Walmart International is a diverse and fast-growing business unit, so you'll get experience on many different projects across the organization. That said, here are some things you'll do:

  • Build reusable React components with Utility Classes like Tachyons, use react query to manage data, and GraphQL.

  • Build cross functional Libraries to be used by web application teams.

  • Measure and resolve performance bottlenecks, using tools like Chrome DevTools, Lighthouse, WebPagetest, or custom tooling.

  • Refactor or improve existing code. We constantly find ways to improve all of our JavaScript code and you are all aboard. 

  • Work closely with our product, design, and UX teams to create amazing and intuitive experiences that make it effortless to connect different apps together.

  • Help put tools, processes, and documentation in place to improve our code quality.

  • Demonstrate technical expertise in solving challenging programming and design problems

  • Review code written by other team members or other teams.

  • Ship to hundreds of thousands of users every day while having lots of autonomy in terms of code and feature ownership.

  • Help out with our Node-based developer platform.

  • Share what you know and learn either one-on-one or with lightning talks to the group.

  • Work boldly with a sense of urgency; embrace mistakes, learn from them, and drive the team toward success


You’ll make an impact by…

  • Effectively translating requirements into project parameters while working with agility from cradle to grave.

  • Helping cross-functional teams to solve for business problems and develop solutions that enable us to redefine a “best-in-class” customer experience.

  • Encouraging the project teams that you oversee to work collaboratively and to aim for insight-driven outcomes.
