single enterprise-wide information system.
We're forming a new team to create an automated merchandising & eSourcing platform, which is a single, integrated, centralized solution for retail requirements from merchandising through store operations, point-of-sale and workforce management. This will quickly enable retailers to drive sales, margins and cash flow by getting the right products to the right place at the right time.
We are a small agile team of highly motivated and smart people who are working on innovating to make the search/shopping experience on Wal-Mart’s online, mobile and physical stores more visual and intuitive. We are building out a great online product powered by unique big data mining technologies, which enable discovery-using algorithms that rank results via social signals from around the web.
