Walmart has been redefining how customers shop since it was founded in 1969 in Bentonville, AR. Today, the Fortune #1 is laser-focused on leveraging technology to offer seamless customer experiences that span in-store to online – because not only is Walmart the world’s largest retailer, it’s also the most powerful player in eCommerce.

 

Recent acquisitions include Jet.com for $3.3B and specialty product sites Shoebuy, Moosejaw, Hayneedle and ModCloth. Walmart also recently launched 2-day free shipping and Pickup Discount for customers while spinning up Store No. 8, the corporate venture arm that partners with entrepreneurs in emerging fields, underscoring the retailer’s commitment to innovation.

Driving the technology of Walmart is Chief Technology Officer Jeremy King, a Silicon Valley thought leader with a background in corporate innovation, global tech operations and leading organizations that foster a startup culture. King is responsible for U.S. retail and eCommerce technology – including Walmart.com and Jet.com – with a global presence in infrastructure, cloud and data platforms.

Find out how King is building the store of tomorrow and delivering a seamless consumer experience across brick-and-mortar, online and mobile, while leading an organization of thousands of technologists from Bentonville to Silicon Valley.
