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 as a tech company? Absolutely. We're the behind-the-scenes powerhouse that fuels Target's passion and commitment to cutting-edge innovation. We anchor every facet of one of the world's best-loved retailers with a strong technology framework that relies on the latest tools and technologies-and the brightest people-to deliver incredible value to guests online and in stores. Target Technology Services is on a mission to offer the systems, tools and support that guests and team members need and deserve. Our high-performing teams balance independence with collaboration, and we pride ourselves on being versatile, agile and creative. We drive industry-leading technologies in support of every angle of the business, and help ensure that Target operates smoothly, securely and reliably from the inside out.

As a lead engineer, you serve as the technical anchor for the engineering team that supports Efficiency Engineering and cloud financial management. You create, own and are responsible for the application architecture that best serves Efficiency Engineering in its functional and non-functional needs. You identify and drive architectural changes to accelerate feature development or improve the quality of service (or both). You have deep and broad software engineering skills and are capable of standing up an architecture in its whole on your own, but you choose to influence a wider team by acting as a "force multiplier". Core responsibilities of this job are described within this job description. Job duties may change at any time due to business needs.

The candidate for the role of Lead Engineer on the Efficiency Engineering team will participate in the development of foundational tooling to expose and present information to engineers at Target, that will enable understanding of their environment and promote an efficiency mindset. Efficiency Engineering at Target is a cultural movement designed to ensure that our application development teams are using their infrastructure resources efficiently. Target application workloads are hosted on a multi-platform hybrid cloud, made up of our internal private cloud called Target Application Platform (TAP), Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and Azure. Due to the variability that comes with cloud utilization, there is a significant need to help teams understand their compute utilization and related cost, independent of where it is running. The team has just released a minimal viable product (MVP) of our application and related systems. An Engineer joining the team will be on the front edge of creating the tools to support and promote this culture of Efficiency Engineering.

A Lead Engineer will lead the team through development of new and enhance existing features in our user interface (UI) and help develop a leading user experience (UX). Partner with other UI development teams to enable the efficiency information to be present in other portals using a micro-front end (MFE) development approach.

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