About us:

Target is one of the world's most recognized brands and the second-largest retailer in the United States.

Target Global Supply Chain and Logistics is evolving at an incredible pace. We are constantly reimagining how we get the right product to the right guest even better, faster and more cost effectively than before. We are becoming more intelligent, automated and algorithmic in our decision-making, so that no matter how guests shop-in stores or on deliver the convenience and immediate gratification they demand and deserve. We are on a mission to win decisively over any competitor, with a seamless and superior guest service experience unlike any they can offer. Our teams work with the agility our mission requires, and we constantly come together to implement new processes in record time. So we're looking for exceptional people who are proactive, creative, independent, innovative, risk-savvy and comfortable working in varying degrees of ambiguity. Are you a critical thinker who seeks the root cause and can analyze both qualitatively and quantitatively? Are you a creative problem-solver who simplifies problems, quickly identifies solutions, commits to a plan and then positively influences others to execute it? If so, you will have success on one of our dynamic teams.

Are you looking to see more, do more, and achieve more? A role in Inventory Management Operations allows you to leverage your expertise by analyzing, researching, and creating solutions on a large scale to enhance Target's ability to manage inventory.

Through automation of processes, web application interactions, and consolidation of data from disparate data stores, we enable the teams to move quickly and eliminate the time consuming tasks that take time away from strategic work.
