Home Depot Investing In Technology Professionals

To support programs related to its $11.1 billion three-year strategic investment plan, The Home Depot will hire about 1,000 new technology professionals during 2018.

The hiring initiative will occur at Home Depot’s primary technology centers in Atlanta, Dallas and Austin, TX.

In December 2017, Home Depot said it would invest in its store and online shopping experience, supply chain, and delivery capabilities, as well as associate and workforce management systems. The initiatives require advanced software engineering, system engineering, UX design and product management skills.

Home Depot’s technology team, in support of innovation initiatives, uses the latest in modern development stacks and agile practices across public and private cloud platforms in addition to artificial intelligence, augmented reality, big data, machine learning and voice and visual recognition capabilities to build award-winning experiences for customers and associates, according to the company.

“With the rapidly changing retail environment, this is easily one of the most exciting places to work in technology,” said Matt Carey, Home Depot evp/chief information officer. “Our team is building some of the most advanced software anywhere to help customers shop whenever, wherever and however they want.”
