About the Job:

A role with Store Operations, Process Operations means a big opportunity to apply your logistics, supply chain and fulfillment experience to continuously improve the strategies that fuel behind-the-scenes processes like fulfillment, replenishment and inventory accuracy.

Product Teams at Target Corporation are accountable for the delivery of business outcomes enabled through technology and analytic products that are easy to use, easily maintained and highly reliable. Product teams have one shared backlog that is inclusive of all analytics, insight and technology work.

As a Senior Product Owner, you will work in the product model and will be a part of developing your product strategy and related roadmap, while ensuring key business objectives (OKRs) are being delivered upon for your respective product. You will need to leverage the knowledge of your product, as well as customer feedback and establish other relevant data points to assess value, develop business cases, and prioritize the direction and desired outcomes for your product. Specifically, in this role, you will own the prioritization and delivery of insights and analytics to store teams and partners within headquarters. As you work through the prioritization process you will then decompose the request into a series of questions that can be answered leveraging the reporting and analytical capabilities used by the team. You will lead a product and work in unison with process owners, data analysts, and data engineers to deliver a product.

You will be the "voice of the product" to key stakeholders to ensure that their needs are met and that the product team is getting the direction and support that it needs to be successful. You will be expected to collaborate with teams across the enterprise to develop cohesive and complementary data and reporting strategies and implementations. These strategies will provide the framework to mature data foundations, analytics capabilities and mathematical applications that drive the business. In addition to working with data analysts and engineers, in this role, you will partner with upstream teams to understand and embrace enterprise, source system, and technology strategies to ensure that products within your scope align to these strategies. You will begin to develop an understanding of the market, maintain a product roadmap and backlog outlining the customer themes, epics, and stories while prioritizing the backlog to focus on the highest impact work for your team and stakeholders.

You will encourage the open exchange of information and viewpoints, as well as partner with others to achieve challenging goals and high standards of performance while committing to the organization's direction. As you define your product, you will communicate with and educate key partners/end users on data strategies, insights, and impacts. The products you deliver will result in the development of datasets, self-service, and standardized reporting platforms for leaders, partners, power users, and business users. As your products evolve, you will demonstrate their capabilities and interact with users to educate them on the usage of the product and its benefits. You will foster sense of urgency to achieve goals and leverage resources to overcome unexpected

obstacles, and partner with product teams across the organization to help them achieve their goals while pursuing and completing yours. Job duties may change at any time due to business needs.
