Target is one of the world's most recognized brands and one of America's leading retailers.

As a Lead Engineer, you will work across teams and be accountable for delivery of yourself and the team. In this role, you will work with a team of skilled engineers and analysts to reliably solve complex problems, while getting hands-on experience with cutting edge technologies. We are looking for skilled developers with experience in one or more of the following areas: Python, PySpark / Spark, Java, kafka, and API development. We spend our time analyzing data, writing stream processing applications to detect fraud and abuse, and automate prevention. Our work directly protects Target and our Guests.
