Your ideas will support Target in complementing the beloved in-store shopping interaction with a convenient, reliable, and instantly gratifying digital experience.

Target is looking for a high impact Director of Product Management for the Query Understanding and Relevance product group (aka Search Relevance) within its Digital Product Management organization. As a part of the Findability product group, Search Relevance makes it easy for Guests to find the answers and products they are looking for at Target.

You are directly responsible for the capabilities and models that accurately interpret what a Target Guest is searching for and delivering highly relevant results back to them.

In this highly visible position, you partner closely with user research, data engineering, data science and data analytics teams and collaborate with other Product Directors to ensure a seamless and highly relevant experience across the Search and Browse experiences. You know how to partner cross-functionally with non-technical, business owners to measure, evaluate and test into the future of a best-in-class omnichannel search experience.

As a people leader, you are responsible for managing a team of highly capable product managers of varying levels of experience to deliver outsized impact. This is a high performing team working in concert to identify and tune multiple factors to drive highly desirable and meaningful business results. In this capacity, you act as coach and mentor to build a strong team culture that is pragmatic in its approach to ambitious goals. You are experienced and comfortable using constructive feedback and insights to motivate the team, guiding their development and continued growth as influencers, visionaries and impact drivers.

As the Director of Product Management, you are accountable for succeeding against identified business outcomes and metrics, driving alignment with all partner teams within the Digital, Marketing, Merchandising, Data Sciences, and Technology organizations.
