Walmart India Private Limited is a wholly owned subsidiary of Walmart Inc. Walmart India owns and operates 21 Best Price Modern Wholesale stores in 8 states across India.
Walmart India has technology operations in Bengaluru and Gurgaon, currently has about 1,800 employees and has announced to recruit about 1,000 more people for technology roles in India to focus on technology and to beat competitor such as ecommerce giant Amazon.
Walmart’s Chief Information Officer, Clay Johnson said to Economic Times, the Company is looking at expanding this headcount and driving more product ownership out of India. “One of things: we are doing a lot different. We have Walmart Labs, which is ecommerce. You have My Group which is global business services. We are trying to be more product-oriented. We have taken whole projects and moved them over to drive the Indian ownership of the product. We think that is helping but this will help even more (in retaining talent),”
Johnson is the Enterprise CIO and Executive Vice President at Walmart, leading Walmart’s Global Business Services (GBS) organization. His global team uses innovative technology to drive operational efficiencies, lower costs and accelerate company growth.
