About us: 

 Target is an iconic brand, a Fortune 50 company and one of America’s leading retailers. 

This role is within the Merchandising organization. You’ll work to build one or more products that will impact every guest transaction by ensuring the Insights we provide inform data-driven decisions on how we allocate space, build our assortments, and present merchandise in a way that is highly relevant to our guest and delivers on Target’s strategic vision. This is a new role, so there is significant opportunity for you to develop and leverage your leadership skills and make a big impact as we shape the future of this work.

Product Teams at Target are accountable for the delivery of business outcomes enabled through technology and analytic products that are easy to use, easily maintained and highly reliable. Product teams have one shared backlog that is inclusive of all product, technology, discovery and design work.

You will develop and actively understand the market, maintain a product roadmap and backlog outlining the customer themes, epics, and stories while prioritizing the backlog to focus on the highest impact work for your team and stakeholders.

You will encourage the open exchange of information and viewpoints, as well as, inspire others to achieve challenging goals and high standards of performance while committing to the organization's direction. You will foster sense of urgency to achieve goals and leverage resources to overcome unexpected obstacles, and partner with product teams across the organization to help them achieve their goals while pursuing and completing yours. Job duties may change at any time due to business needs.
