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. As so much more than a behind-the-scenes number-cruncher, you will be a truly collaborative partner with a seat at the table. You'll bring your unique point of view, experience and passion for the work to your team and internal clients. Within Accounting, 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. Your role will be critical to ensuring the success of Target's business initiatives and core retail operations.

As an Accountant, you will be an active partner by owning assigned journal entries and working closely with the company's Financial Reporting team to ensure timely and accurate month-end closes. You will complete SAP journal entries and review account reconciliations timely and in compliance with SOX guidelines. You will work on special projects and ad-hoc analysis as needed. You will develop strong internal and external relationships in order to influence partners and provide client support to teams across the company. You will drive process improvements by using data analytics and innovation. You will execute controls and maintain a strong internal control environment.

Core responsibilities of this job are described within this job description. Job duties may change at any time due to business needs.

About you:
  • Four-year degree in Accounting or Finance
  • 2+ years of Accounting experience
  • Experience working with Excel and Access
  • Knowledge of GAAP preferred
  • Ability to work cross functionally with strong communication skills
