Position Summary:
This lead management role for Innovation Acceleration and Scale-up is responsible for leading the team of technical developers for scale-up projects, leading the planning for the portfolio, and providing coordination and project management for POCs and MVPs that may move beyond the innovation process to production, product scale-up or commercialization.

Our mission is to drive innovative thinking and behavior as we EXPLORE in-store problems, DESIGN solutions, EXPERIMENT with technology and ALIGN our work to value. We are working towards a vision of the Store of the Future, as we experiment around horizons 2 and 3 of innovation that connect to that vision. Like a startup accelerator within a corporation, the Propulsion Lab helps bring these ideas to life.
What We Offer: 5 Bullets (HR Use Only)
• Collaborative teams in an inclusive environment
• Flexible work arrangements
• Generous vacation and holidays
• Competitive benefits including a 401k match, HSA options, and education assistance
• A strong opportunity to make an impact and define the future
