New Walmart Inc. Tech Hub In Toronto To Generate New jobs And Support Canadian Tech Talent

Walmart Inc. has announced plans today to make Toronto, Ontario and Atlanta, Georgia two new Walmart Global Tech hubs because of their growing tech presence, connection to Walmart and broad and diverse local talent. The expansion is part of Walmart Global Tech’s plan to hire more than 5,000 associates globally this fiscal year.  

Walmart Global Tech plans to make Toronto one of its larger hubs, with hundreds of new jobs over time. The initial hiring phase is expected to include 45 full-time roles in software development, technical program management and product management. Initial hiring in Atlanta is expected to include 140 new full-time roles such as data scientists and software engineers.

The launch of a technology hub in Toronto keeps homegrown tech talent on Canadian soil and is in addition to Walmart’s longstanding local commitment. In 2020, Walmart Canada announced a $3.5 billion investment to make the online and in-store experience simpler, faster and more convenient for Walmart Canada’s customers. Deploying the latest technology throughout the business – from supply chain to associates – is a major part of the investment.

With the addition of the Toronto and Atlanta hubs, Walmart Global Tech will have 16 technology hubs, including teams in Seattle, WA and Chennai, India that launched last year. Walmart Global Tech is the fastest growing corporate team inside the world’s leading retailer. More technologists are choosing Walmart as the place to grow impactful careers and the company continues to invest in its tech associates.  In the last fiscal year, Walmart Global Tech grew by 26% to 20,000 associates and 20% of the Global Tech team earned a promotion.
