About Us:

As a Fortune 50 company with more than 350,000 team members worldwide, Target is an iconic brand and one of America's leading retailers.

Working at Target means the opportunity to help all families discover the joy of everyday life. Caring for our communities is woven into who we are, and we invest in the places we collectively live, work and play. We prioritize relationships, fuel and develop talent by creating growth opportunities, and succeed as one Target team. At our core, our purpose is ingrained in who we are, what we value, and how we work. It's how we care, grow, and win together.

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 Target.com-we 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.

A role in Network Planning and Global Intelligence means creating industry leading intelligence solutions to drive best in class omnichannel guest experiences at the lowest cost to Target. The TTOPS (Target Transportation Operating Systems) product team sits within NPGI and is responsible for the delivery of product outcomes which enable the future transportation operating model. Transportation's role in Supply Chain is critical as it enables getting inventory into our network (First Mile), moving inventory within our network (Middle Mile), and delivering goods to the Guest (Last Mile). We're looking for exceptional people who are proactive, creative, independent, innovative, risk-savvy and comfortable working in varying degrees of ambiguity.

The Sr. Project Manager Transportation is part of the Product Activation team within TTOPS. This specific role's scope involves initiatives within Last Mile Transportation. As a Sr. Project Manager on the Product Activation team, you will work closely with business partners and stakeholders on early stage problem definition, issue framing, and dependency identification. You will be assigned key projects which necessitate stakeholder alignment and chartering, and you will develop and administer timetables and coordinate resources to ensure that projects are completed on-time and in service to the overall strategy. You will establish and lead daily, weekly or monthly project venues as needed, and actively communicate project status across multiple forums and audiences, maintaining project management tools including project timeline, communication plan, dashboards, decision logs, and risk analysis tools. Finally, you will work closely with Product Owners throughout the project management lifecycle, collaborating to ensure parody between project plans and product roadmaps.

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