About us:

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

Target Global Supply Chain and Logistics is evolving at an incredible pace. We are constantly reimagining how we get the right product to the right guest even better, faster and more cost effectively than before. We are becoming more intelligent, automated and algorithmic in our decision-making, so that no matter how guests shop—in stores or on Target.com—we deliver the convenience and immediate gratification they demand and deserve. We are on a mission to win decisively over any competitor, with a seamless and superior guest service experience unlike any they can offer. Our teams work with the agility our mission requires, and we constantly come together to implement new processes in record time. 


So we're looking for exceptional people who are proactive, creative, independent, innovative, risk-savvy and comfortable working in varying degrees of ambiguity. Are you a critical thinker who seeks the root cause and can analyze both qualitatively and quantitatively? Are you a creative problem-solver who simplifies problems, quickly identifies solutions, commits to a plan and then positively influences others to execute it? If so, you will have success on one of our dynamic teams 


A role in Global Logistics, Inventory Allocation and Replenishment means you'll focus on the efficient transportation of product around the world. Here, you'll be challenged to pivot seamlessly from sales operations and planning, to ensuring compliance with U.S. Customs regulations, to achieving the best possible product availability through proper inventory positioning. You'll establish and develop great relationships with our vendors to encourage on-time shipment and delivery to stores and ultimately, guests. And you'll analyze transportation supplier capabilities and contracts for maximum speed, reliability and cost effectiveness.


You'll contribute to the system design and development of business process solutions to drive speed and precision within the imports supply chain. You'll become a subject matter expert in Target's newly implemented supply chain platform.


You'll facilitate integration activities with supply chain partners, including managing partners through system integration testing and user acceptance testing. You'll design reporting based on shipment milestones and become a subject matter expert in Target's newly implemented supply chain management platform.

Requirements:

  • 4-year college degree
  • Technology or systems acumen
  • Experience with systems implementation
  • Ability to create data solutions to drive operational problem solving
  • Results driven and ability to work independently and collaborate across groups to implement technology and process solutions
  • Self-starter with curiosity and the ability to learn and apply new skills and tools in an iterative manner
  • Strong communication & organizational skills
  • 3+ years of business experience in supply chain, logistics, transportation or technology
