Under Jeremy King’s watch, Walmart has been using big data to power the best online shopping experience available today. Every week, up to 250 million people visit a Walmart property online and King is making it Walmart’s mission to keep those people coming back with personalized shopping experiences.
The transformation started in 2012 when Walmart eCommerce moved from a small Hadoop cluster to a big one (250 modes), and has since used Hadoop to consolidate 10 different websites into one website. The big data capabilities in the new Hadoop cluster provide a central repository that can go back years. Walmart’s access to big data is indefinite, and powers various personalized shopping experiences for millions of Walmart’s customers, making their lives easier.
As chief technology officer and senior vice president of global e-commerce at Walmart, Jeremy King leads product, engineering, and the web ops teams charged with developing Walmart’s online business on a global scale as the company moves to the next generation of e-commerce. Jeremy received a B.S. in information technology from San Jose State University.
