About us:

Target is an iconic brand, a Fortune 50 company and one of America's leading retailers.

Every time a guest enters a Target store or browses Target.com, they experience the impact of Target's investments in technology and innovation. We're the technologists behind one of the most loved retail brands, delivering joy to millions of our guests, team members, and communities.

Join our global in-house technology team of more than 4,000 of engineers, data scientists, architects, coaches and product managers striving to make Target the most convenient, safe and joyful place to shop. We use agile practices and leverage open-source software to adapt and build best-in-class technology for our team members and guests-and we do so with a focus on diversity and inclusion, experimentation and continuous learning.

The Enterprise UI team provides a suite of products to engineering teams across Target, that help implement a consistent user experience across non-guest facing products, enhance developer productivity and facilitate code quality assurance.

The flagship design system and library product this team offers is called Canvas. Canvas started as an internal need and blossomed into a full-fledged design library adopted by over 200 teams at Target. Alongside Canvas, the Enterprise UI team offers code sandboxes, Icon packs and UI testing tools.
