About Us:

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

Target as a tech company? Absolutely. We are the behind-the-scenes powerhouse that fuels Target's passion and commitment to cutting-edge innovation. We anchor every aspect of being America's most loved retailer with cutting-edge technology, and the smartest engineers in retail technology! Developer Experience (DevEx) at Target is a group of engineering teams who work to improve the reliability of Target's tech footprint. To do that, they combine software and systems engineering to build products and platforms that manage notifications, incidents, change, data connections and insights, chaos engineering, and eventing.

As a Senior Engineer in DevEx, you are someone who has demonstrated experience building and operating highly scalable platforms and fault-tolerant systems across a range of technologies. You are interested in all the things that contribute to operational excellence in a highly complex distributed environment. You care about the data that describes the systems that are deployed, changed, and served out of our own data centers and into the cloud.

Job Summary:

As a member of the DevEx team, you will contribute to technical architecture, product prioritization, scalable automation, capacity planning, adoption of supporting technologies, and all other aspects of building world-class privately hosted and cloud-based services. You will work closely with software engineering teams using our products and services and focus on driving adoption, understanding user's needs, and translating those back into our design.

DevEx Engineers are systems and software engineers whose focus is to help Target increase reliability through business insights. We make the operation of software easy, improving resiliency by designing Chaos Engineering, connecting data to answer questions, own the alerting and notifications platform and working on the change and incident platform for Target's e-commerce/Retail and Enterprise platforms. DevEx's team goal is to drive understanding of operational excellence for engineering teams and to be able to provide insights into change and incidents for the business.

This role will support our Linked Intelligence System (LIS). LIS catalogs all of the relationships among Target's digital assets (hardware and software) and the people who work on them. LIS, as an aggregator, provides a single place for people to query about Target's current hardware and software inventory and their interactions while still allowing teams to own and manage their own inventory systems (distributed inventorying).
