An Insider's view of BlackLocus
What's something quirky about your company?
Within my first few weeks at BlackLocus I was able to see that there’s a community for any interest I may have, e.g., reading, travel, running, volunteering. We all spend a lot of time at work and I feel lucky that I can work at a place that values me as not only a technical professional but also as a person with a multitude of varied interests.

BlackLocus is part of The Home Depot, a retail business. We use clever approaches in data analytics to dream up novel solutions to address age-old retail concerns like pricing, delivery, and assortment at a massive scale. Each new project aims to help drive day-to-day retail decisions and make a major impact in revenue performance.

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?
My job is to enable all of BlackLocus to do great work! That means being an advocate for and getting to know everyone. For me, that looks like participating in other team’s meetings and finding opportunities for ME to make their work lives better. If you visit our office, come find me in the 8th-floor living room!
