Careers in India
@WalmartLabs India (Technology)
At the @WalmartLabs technology center in India, we build brand new platforms and services on the latest technology stack to support both our e-commerce and store business worldwide.
As consumers evolve, our eCommerce is taking the lead in rethinking what shopping can be for customers around the world. We are combining online, mobile, social, and physical stores to give customers an “anytime, anywhere” shopping experience.
Our eCommerce business is aggressively growing our pool of talent and technology infrastructure. We have grown our teams organically and through targeted acquisitions to boost our strengths in mobile, big data, and social. Instead of making incremental improvements, we look to skip generations in technology and put ourselves out in front.
Information Systems Division (ISD)
Technology touches every part of our business, from data centers to self-check-out lanes, satellite communications, handheld devices, and electronic product codes. Our inspired team is focused on changing the way the world shops by providing smarter and intuitive ways to shop and manage business processes.
Global Business Processes (GBP)
Our GBP team is all about delivering rapid innovation, high quality decision making, and best practices across Walmart’s international markets. The team uses advanced process engineering and analytics to maximize productivity in stores, merchandising, replenishment, and other supporting functions.
Walmart India (Retail)
Walmart India Private Limited is a wholly owned subsidiary of Wal-Mart Stores Inc. Walmart India owns and operates 20 Best Price Modern Wholesale stores in 8 states across India. The first store opened in Amritsar in 2009.
The Best Price stores offer best prices with unmatched convenience, choice, quality and hygiene. The mission of Best Price is to “Enable small businesses to prosper.” To enter and purchase from Best Price stores, it is mandatory to become a member.
The Best Price stores offer an assortment of around 5,000 items, including food and non-food items, which are available at competitive wholesale prices, allowing retailers and business owners to lower their cost of operations and maximize their revenues. A typical Best Price store is about 50,000 square feet and sells a wide range of fresh, frozen and chilled food, fruits and vegetables, dry groceries, personal and home care, hotel and restaurant supplies, clothing, office supplies and other general merchandise items.
Over 90-95% of these products are sourced locally. This helps to keep costs to a minimum, adds to the growth of local economy and creates job opportunities. Enhanced job opportunities are also created locally as the store directly employs from the local community.
