What you'll do...
Walmart started with the simple idea of selling more for less. Over the last 50 years it has grown into the largest retailer in the world, with more than 265 million customers each week across 11,000 stores worldwide. Sustaining that growth, size, and corporate value creates many exciting opportunities and challenges in all areas of retail commerce.
The inventory group is responsible for all aspects of inventory in stores, ecommerce, and distribution centers. It touches on aspects of physical movement of merchandise, data recording and archival systems, and algorithms for replenishment, and website visibility/availability. There are countless number of problems where machine learning can have an impact in being smarter, simpler, and reactive. The end results being a better user experience, cost efficiencies, and bottom line profits.
Machine learning in this environment is not without it's challenges. Data must be pulled from many archival systems and stitched together. No two stores are the same, with variability in supply/demand patterns, and service from distribution centers. We seek solutions to problems consisting of 30+ million products, across 5000+ stores; a daunting task.
You'll be working on using machine learning to predict availability in stores for online orders. Your responsibility is in the entire lifecycle of product development from research investigation to production deployment, monitoring, and evaluation. While the core of our product is based on machine learning algorithms, the bulk of our work is in big-data engineering, analysis, and visualization. You're a good data engineer, and also comfortable with math and statistics.
Our Ideal Candidate will have: Bachelors of Science and 4 years of experience or Masters of Science and 2 years of experience.
Expertise in computer science, big-data, statistics, and machine learning. A formal degree in at least one of these areas, and work experience in the others.
Scala + Spark are a requirements.
Bonus for experience in statistical models, logistic regression, and real-time predictions. Less application for deep learning, and NLP solutions.
Apply if you've a desire to solve difficult problems, manipulate big data, work with a highly talented team, see the results affect millions of Walmart customers, and continuously learn new things.
