About the Team
Our team builds products to enhance the lives of millions of Americans. We create richly compelling digital experiences for customers - whether they are at home, in our stores, or on the go. We build the tools our Home Office Merchants need to select the very best products to help our customers live better. We also make the services and systems our 1.2 million employees need to do their jobs in our stores and throughout our entire supply chain.
At Walmart, our customers and associates are at the center of all our efforts, and design research is one way we observe and listen to our users to make sure we are designing the best experience for their needs. As a Sr. Design Researcher, you will represent the perspective of our customers and associates to help support our strategic vision. If you are motivated to help teams understand complex areas of our business, being a Senior Design Researcher could be the fit you've been looking for.
You'll sweep us off our feet if you have...
- A strong working knowledge and extensive experience with both generative and evaluative research methods, and how to apply them in a fast-moving organization.
- The ability to translate insight into action. You help teams understand customer needs, attitudes, and behaviors through thoughtful and actionable research. Your work informs both strategic and tactical efforts.
- Knowledge of the product design process and experience collaborating with other researchers, designers, content strategists, product managers, and engineers to help transform complex problems into easy-to-use products. You recommend how to best address our research goals and questions, so your partners don't have to.
- The ability to work without close supervision but you seek out and welcome feedback from senior leaders and managers.
- Ability to produce great work in short timeframes, multi-task across different projects and platforms and adapt to the ever-changing priorities of the business.
You'll make an impact by:
- Pulling from a broad toolkit of research methods, including live studies, un-moderated studies, field studies, participatory design, heuristic evaluations, and remote usability testing.
- Enhancing your work by actively seeking out research and metrics from other sources to provide comprehensive recommendations that inform design and business strategy.
