About us:Target is one of the world's most recognized brands and one of America's leading retailers. Our guests love our commitment to continual innovation and right now, we are up to big things. Our goal is to deliver Target's unique brand promise to guests wherever and whenever they shop, today and tomorrow: in-store, online, on tablets and mobile phones, and in the retail channels of the future.
This position is for the External Cloud team within Target's Platform Services division. The Platform Services teams create, deploy, and manage enterprise platform solutions used by thousands of Target's engineers. The External Cloud team is responsible for providing a consistent infrastructure experience across multiple cloud providers.

The team creates an engineer-centric culture through team members selecting their own work, autonomy in implementation decisions, and debating ideas solely on merit.  We work primarily in pairs or groups not only to share knowledge but to include a diversity of thought in all of our decisions.  We encourage personal growth through variety of work, prioritizing career path discussions, and a commitment to continuous learning.  The team enables smart risk and innovative experimentation by practicing blameless retrospectives, approaching every decision as an experiment, and focusing on learning through doing.  We are an agile team that practices a blend of Scrum and Kanban, with a stress on independent, autonomous decisions of the team.  We also have a flexible work environment as appropriate to the needs of the individual and team.
