Small Team, Big Impact

BlackLocus is a former startup team acquired by Home Depot, the top home improvement retailer in the world. To stay ahead of the curve, Home Depot is making a substantial investment in data science, innovation, technology and design.

We approach problem solving holistically, integrating our research and knowledge of customer motivations and buying habits with scalable technology.
