The Telemetry and Monitoring product team develops innovative ways to enable operational visibility so that proactive actions can be taken at speed and scale. In today's world, Guests' technology expectations are very, very high.When they login to Target.com, they expect it to be available, performant, and quite simply work.When they choose order pickup, they expect their order to be available for pickup in store the same day in a couple hours.To meet these expectations, Target needs to have confidence that our technologies are meeting the guest's needs.Product teams across all of Target can gain this confidence by consuming Telemetry and Monitoring offerings.

We want a highly creative and motivated application/UI developer who turns customer wants into product features, will both lead and implement, is eager to learn, and wants to help build the culture, practice, and craft of Telemetry and Monitoring across Target.

If you're excited to work on a fast-moving, tightly knit team with the best open-source data tools at a crazy-high scale, we want to meet you.

Here's a smattering of approaches important to us, and the technologies we use:

●Everything we do is “as-code” in version control. We don't like clicking buttons or doing things manually.

All changes go through a pull-request process, so you'll always have a way to thumbs up or down things you catch.

●Nearly everything should have test cases and go through a continuous integration/continuous deployment process

●Some technologies which are critical to the work we do: Golang, React, Docker, Kubernetes, PostgreSQL, Kafka, GitHub, Drone, Artifactory, Chef, Spinnaker, OpenStack, the elastic stack, Telegraf, InfluxDB, and Grafana
