Working with the Enterprise Pricing product team, partner with product managers and engineers to:
  • Identify the need for features and functionality for pricing analysts to use to research, update and monitor pricing for items sold by Target.
  • Conduct and follow up on contextual research by directly observing end-users of the tools to gain empathy and understanding of the work they are tasked with as well as current pain points and wishes for feature enhancements or additions.
  • Follow up periodically with end users to gauge satisfaction with the solutions provided through the tools we design & build.
  • Work to define and advocate for a tools ‘ecosystem' that will ensure tools work together and provide distinct benefits to their users as well as contain the appropriate features for users according to their role and work tasks.
  • Define a pattern library of UI and design elements, together with engineers and accessibility, to ensure reusable, proven and tested patterns are documented and socialized to individual tools teams.
  • Prototype a model of individual tools, being mindful of reusability of prototypes to final code as well as their ability to communicate overall features and usability of the tool to engineers.
  • Use prototypes to test and refine the team's understanding of the user's pain points and goals by conducting usability and feedback sessions with end-users.
  • Consult with other Enterprise UX team members (e.g., Promotions, Item, Merch Tools) to ensure cohesiveness of the tool ecosystem to be used by Target team members.
  • Evangelize the tools ecosystem both within and externally from the Pricing product team, including with end users and partners within the Product organization.
  • Bring empathy for our tools end-users by teaching out their challenges and goals to the larger UX team as well as to partnering Product teams.
  • Skills in UX Architecture, with additional aptitude in UX Visual Design, Contextual research, usability research and front-end development.
