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

Target as a tech company? Absolutely. We're the behind-the-scenes powerhouse that fuels Target's passion and commitment to cutting-edge innovation. We anchor every facet of one of the world's best-loved retailers with a strong technology framework that relies on the latest tools and technologies-and the brightest people-to deliver incredible value to guests online and in stores. Target Technology Services is on a mission to offer the systems, tools and support that guests and team members need and deserve. Our high-performing teams balance independence with collaboration, and we pride ourselves on being versatile, agile and creative. We drive industry-leading technologies in support of every angle of the business, and help ensure that Target operates smoothly, securely and reliably from the inside out.

As a lead engineer within the Local Area Network (LAN) Engineering team, you serve as the technical anchor for the engineering team that supports the LAN Distributed Connectivity product. This space is a rapidly evolving area with a focus on flexible network solutions including both traditional networking technologies but also with rapid advancement into dis-aggregated hardware/software systems, including Opensource solutions. End to end infrastructure automation and friction-less client self-service offerings is always top of mind in our roadmap and design. You create, own and are responsible for the architecture that best serves the product in its functional and non-functional needs. You identify and drive architectural changes to accelerate feature development or improve the quality of service (or both). You have deep and broad engineering skills and are capable of standing up an architecture in its whole on your own, but you choose to influence a wider team by acting as a "force multiplier". Core responsibilities of this job are described within this job description. Job duties may change at any time due to business needs.

Use your skills, experience and talents to be a part of groundbreaking thinking and visionary goals.
