About us:

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

Right on pace with Target's distinctive retail brand, Target Finance and Accounting are transforming for the better. As so much more than a behind-the-scenes number-cruncher, you will be a truly collaborative partner with a seat at the table. You'll bring your unique point of view, experience and passion for the work to your team and internal clients. In Finance, you'll be an integral voice in discussions that lead to Target's unparalleled shopping experience. Your analysis and recommendations will be directly applied to critical business decisions, from sales to merchandising and beyond. Within Finance, you'll enjoy the interesting challenges of the competitive retail space, and you'll have a 360-degree impact—rather than on just one part of the business. You'll see your contributions come to life in virtually every area of this dynamic enterprise. And you'll grow and be challenged in your career while having a healthy balance with life outside of work.

A role on the Financial Planning and Analysis team means providing insight and guidance to support Target's strategic growth strategies and financial decisions. You'll deliver objective and financially-focused insights to the business owners and finance leaders. You will be a critically important resource for long-term and annual financial planning, analysis and drive cross-company initiatives.  

As Senior Manager, Technology Finance, you will lead a team of analysts responsible for technology license and maintenance spend management, governance, and financial reporting and operations.  You will ensure vendor spend is appropriately tracked and managed.  You will also ensure appropriate escalation of spend risks to the accountable Portfolio Manager.  You will serve as an Accounting Liaison to ensure compliance with applicable SOX controls and resource capitalization process oversight.  You will partner with Technology and Product teams to transition to a new forecasting system.  You will partner with Enterprise Data Analytics and Business Intelligence to provide timely and accurate financial reporting to Technology Leaders and Technology Finance Portfolio Managers.  You will lead financial data validation routines, drive data inaccuracy resolution, and enable an accurate monthly technology forecast submission.   You will partner with the Technology Finance Portfolio Managers to align short and long term license and maintenance spend management goals to total technology spend priorities.  Job duties may change at any time due to business needs.

About you:

  • B.A/B.S degree in accounting or finance, MBA, a plus
