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.

Here at BlackLocus, that means we get to collaborate with smart and diverse minds to explore exciting opportunities in the rapidly transforming retail space. We approach problem solving holistically, integrating our research and knowledge of customer motivations and buying habits with scalable technology.

“There's a lot to do, a lot to learn, and many ways to make an impact. Folks can wear multiple hats if they want, or refocus their interests while still benefiting the company.”
Crandall, Technical Lead
