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. You'll bring your unique point of view, experience and passion for the work to your team and internal clients. Within Finance Process and Technology, 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 in Finance Process and Technology calls on your skills for operational analytics, ensuring prioritization of projects by business value while providing thoughtful and responsive support, expertise and guidance to business partners. Your role will be critical to ensuring the success of Target's business initiatives.

As a Finance Process and Technology Intake Analyst, you will learn the full end to end initiative/project prioritization and execution process and support the Finance teams by managing the inbound workflow, developing key business value metrics and deliver meaningful analytic support to business partners

You will be the first point of contact from the Finance business for any new project and enhancement requests. These requests are to improve their processes and key technical tool-sets used to run Target's accounting, analytic and operations business. You will mentor and help the Finance teams develop business cases with measurable metrics for their requests to better represent the value that could be realized. You will provide reporting on the requests to allow Finance leadership to manage prioritization of the requests, understand value gained and manage resources. You will develop strong internal relationships to influence across the company. You will improve upon the request and reporting process to make it meet all stakeholder needs.

You will also support larger cross pyramid initiatives led by the Finance Process and Technology team owning key Program Management tools including development and maintenance of program dashboards used to communicate progress and status to all levels within Target Corporation, issue/risk/decision logs and other Project Management tools. You will work with work stream leads to drive definition and track against foundation milestones and acceptance criteria. You will manage and track cross-initiative inter dependencies and monitor sequencing to ensure collisions are identified and resolved seeking to understand connections and bring clarity to the critical path.
