What you'll do at

The Senior Technical Analyst, Design & Innovation- Fulfillment Engineering is responsible for delivering comprehensive and credible data analysis that support the design of next generation fulfillment engineering solutions (machines, processes, work stations, etc., automated and manual) for use within the extended Walmart e-commerce fulfillment network (including Walmart sortable, Walmart Non-sortable, Jet Sortable, Jet Fresh, Sam’s Club, Hayneedle, Shoebuy, etc.). Your ultimate goal is to lower Variable Cost Per Unit (VCPU) and Total Cost Per Unit (TCPU) in order to support the growth of the e-commerce fulfillment network.

What You’ll Be Working On

Connecting disparate data sources:  Data sources abound across multiple disparate systems but they often operate in silos and are designed only with their individual system in mind, so you will bring together and link data from multiple sources to make sense of the whole.

Enabling continually faster analyses:  Slow-running queries and analyses lead to longer iteration cycles for designs, so you will structure the data in forms that enable our team to be nimble in decision-making. 

Replacing assumptions with facts:  Oftentimes designs go into place based on assumptions and the validation of those assumptions doesn’t happen before the next design decision occurs, leading teams to make the same mistakes multiple times; you will architect data capture and analysis into the implementation process of each project.

Broaden data horizons:  Datasets based on days’ or weeks’ worth of data can hide idiosyncrasies and give a false level of precision, so you will expand data horizons to take years’ worth of data into account.

Responsibilities

You will be responsible for generating a master database of the current performance of the system to support the data-driven design of new solutions and facilities.  You will design, document, construct and deploy database architectures and applications (e.g. large relational databases).  You will clean and maintain the database by removing and deleting old data.

You will collect and store information about order header and order details, carton header and carton details, SKU item master, and inbound receiving POs.  You will integrate operational data around realized throughputs, utilization, OEE (overall equipment effectiveness).

You will work in conjunction with design analysts and design engineers to influence the design and business justification of new solutions and faciltiies.

You will collaborate with other data teams throughout Walmart, including but not limited to:  Order Management, Supply Chain Analytics, Transportation, Jet Data Engineering, Walmart Information Systems Division.  You will create a fluid end-to-end vision of how data will flow through the Fulfillment Engineering organization.

You will influence and guide data discussions with new vendors to ensure the introduction of new sources fits into the cohesive whole.

You will implement measures to ensure data accuracy and accessibility.
