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 Operations is 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 Finance Operations, 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 Operations within the Controller's Group calls on your skills for accurate financials, operational accounting and process innovation 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 and core retail operations.

As Sr Manager of Freight Payment, you'll provide strategic direction and leadership to the global Freight Payment Team, ensuring processes and controls are effective for timely, accurate and efficient freight carrier payment and accounting activities. You will manage all aspects of the freight payment process, leading projects, supporting our culture of automation and being an important partner in large enterprise projects. By collaborating closely with our Transportation, Supply Chain Finance, and Target Tech partners, you will drive a comprehensive approach to freight payment processes. Leverage your strong strategic and critical thinking skills to analyze new supply chain initiatives and the anticipated impact to freight payment processing. Be innovative to solve problems to continually accomplish automated payment processing and deliver industry-leading performance metrics. This role reports to the Director, Accounts Payable.

We'll support you along the way with personal and career development, to help you grow. The exciting part of retail? It's always changing!
