About us:

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

Behind one of the world's best loved brands, is a uniquely capable and brilliant team of data analysts, scientists, product owners and engineers.

A role with Target's testing and measurement team is a chance to help develop our in-house strength for quantifying the impact or minimizing the risk for a broad range of initiatives. Sometimes those initiatives are customer-facing as our clients look to optimize their business, but other times we apply advanced analytical methodologies on the internal products and processes our data sciences teams develop. We are in the process of adopting a responsible AI framework this person will champion and teach to others. As such, this role will be independent of modeling teams and will develop an independent perspective measuring possible unintended consequences for a broad range of algorithms.
