Then you'll have success on the Digital Strategy & Platform team, whose goal is to offer guests a seamless online shopping experience across our platforms-including Target.com and the store network's fulfillment capabilities. Here, you'll collaborate to create and implement digital strategies that enrich the online experience through the right mix of personalization, simplicity, and intuitiveness.

In this highly visible Digital Product Management position, Search Relevance team makes it easier for all customers to find the answer and products they are looking for at Target. We set the overall strategic vision for improving the Guest finding experience scientifically through data and balance this with the curated brand experience that Guests love. We are looking for a highly analytical, data driven and visionary Sr Product Manager to continue the vision of understanding Guest Intent and deliver relevant search results. You will be working closely with engineering, data science and experience teams across Target to give simplified experience to Guest by understanding their Intent and ranking items based on desirability and business signals. This team is working on top strategic priority, 'ease and convenience' and is the ground for fast paced innovation. In this role, you will focus on building digital shopping assistant for omnichannel Target Guest. While we are betting to build for the future, we are fast paced and making progress every sprint.
As a Sr Product Manager, you will work in the product agile model and will partner with stakeholders across Target to develop a comprehensive product strategy, related roadmap, and set key business objectives (OKRs) for your respective product. You will need to leverage the knowledge of your product, as well as customer feedback and establish other relevant data points to assess value, develop business cases, and prioritize the direction and desired outcomes for your product.
While you are a visionary, you will know how to make tradeoff for short term wins for long term goals. You will be the "voice of the product" to key stakeholders (i.e. site merchandising, digital operations, marketing and advertising) to ensure that their needs are met and expertly distill technical complexity into customer and business value to this group. You lead with connection and inclusivity to influence partners and key stakeholders. You will in turn represent the "voice of the Guest" to the product team (i.e. engineers, data scientists, UX, and data analysts) and ensure they get the direction and support needed to be successful. You will develop and actively understand the market, maintain a product roadmap and backlog outlining the customer themes, epics, and stories while prioritizing the backlog to focus on the highest impact work for your team and stakeholders.
You will encourage the open exchange of information and viewpoints, as well as inspire others to achieve challenging goals and high standards of performance while committing to the organization's direction. You will foster a sense of urgency to achieve goals and leverage resources to overcome unexpected obstacles, and partner with product teams across the organization to help them achieve their goals while pursuing and completing yours.
