About this Position
We are seeking a Product Leader who wants a unique, highly visible role in defining how Walmart’s US eCommerce business will continue to exceed growth targets and deliver a best in class customer experience. As the Director of Product, you will be charged with leading a highly strategic team that understands and maximizes the way our eCommerce team works across the lifecycle of running our business: assortment strategy, supply chain, data management, pricing and managing the customer experience. Your team will build the eCommerce “Flight Deck” that is the central hub of information, workflows and tools scaled across thousands of Walmart associates with direct impact to our P&Ls.
This role requires a passion for understanding workflows, behaviors and human/computer interaction to maximize impact.
