Walmart Expands Its Partnership with Path Forward

After a successful 2018 program in the Bay Area, Walmart is pleased to be expanding the Path Forward program to increase the number of opportunities in Silicon Valley and add new returnship openings at nearly every Walmart Labs location in America, including Carlsbad, CA; Reston, VA; and Walmart’s hometown of Bentonville, AR.

Our return-to-work opportunities are with Walmart’s technology division — Walmart Labs. Imagine working in an environment where one experiment can catapult an entire industry toward a smarter future. That’s what we do at Walmart Labs. We’re a team of 5,000+ software engineers, data scientists, designers and product managers within Walmart, the world’s largest retailer, delivering innovations that improve how our customers shop and our enterprise operates.

Working at Walmart

Culture is the foundation of everything we do at Walmart. We define culture as our values in action. It’s how we deliver superior customer service, create a great front-line work environment and improve performance in order to achieve our common purpose of saving people money so they can live better.

At Walmart, we believe we are best equipped to help our associates, customers and the communities we serve live better when we really know them. That means understanding, respecting and valuing diversity—unique styles, experiences, identities, ideas and opinions—while being inclusive of all people.  Inclusion is the key to growing our business. By fostering a workplace culture where everyone is—and feels—included, everyone wins.

“Our 2018 program with Path Forward was a big success for Walmart Labs. We had more than 30 women successfully complete returnships in our Silicon Valley office and retained three quarters of them in full-time roles. We are grateful to our partners at Path Forward for helping us get from announcing the launch of our pilot program to having the returnships completed and full-time offers accepted in about six months. We look forward to expanding on that success across Walmart Labs.” Bobbie Grafeld, VP of People for Walmart Labs
