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.

Target's vendor experiences are key to the company's success in helping all families discover the joy of everyday life. The vendor experience team is dedicated to creating and maintaining the internal systems that drive collaboration between internal and external partners, empowering them to source products and services that underpin the guest experience.

About The Job:

We are seeking a Lead Product Designer (UX) to guide the development of new internal tools for vendor and negotiation experiences. In this role you'll continuously engage with product, business teams, engineers, and users to create experiences that drive the collaboration essential to Target's success. Many legacy tools exist in this domain. Your job will be to transform those legacy tools into valuable, usable, scalable systems that support evolving business processes.

We need someone whose approach to UX begins with systems thinking and generative discovery and continues through to detailed design--someone who can own the entire process from concept to completion.

As a part of the Business Partners and Negotiation UX team, you'll have access to internal users and vendor partners. You'll make an impact as a member of a passionate, supportive, and increasingly diverse group focused on elevating the enterprise tools that support Target's rapidly growing digital business. You'll be in the driver's seat of your career growth at Target with strong support for work-life balance. We will support you along the way with robust onboarding and personal and career development to help you grow.

The Lead Product Designer will:

  • Partner with product and engineering to set a vision for the next generation of vendor tools
  • Proactively identify and pursue design opportunities within your product domain
  • Create wireframes and other documents that align teams around a shared vision
  • Set standards of craft, including accessibility, user research, information architecture, interaction design, visual design
  • Advance a culture of human-centered practice within UX, product, and engineering teams
  • Investigate and validate using both qualitative and quantitative research methods
  • Build a network of relationships to enable your work

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

About You:

  • 6+ years of product design experience preferred, but level of proficiency is more important to us
  • You thrive at the intersection of design strategy and craft
  • You're a curious person who falls in love with complex problems and enjoys iterating toward a solution
  • You're passionate about making an impact and effectively use data and insights to set your direction
  • You practice design thinking and present work clearly and effectively to educate others and gain support
  • You value outcomes and strive toward design that is welcoming, inspiring, and clear
  • You embrace collaboration as a tool to build consensus around design decisions
  • You balance the need for strategic work with day-to-day design work

If this sounds like you, we'd love to meet.

The application process will include a series of interviews as well as a portfolio review of specific work samples and case studies that show design process and different stages of work. Please include your portfolio with your application.
