About us:

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

Right on pace with Target’s distinctive retail brand, Target Finance and Accounting is transforming for the better. As so much more than a behind-the-scenes number-cruncher, you will be a truly collaborative partner with a seat at the table. You’ll bring your unique point of view, experience and passion for the work to your team and internal clients. Within Finance, you’ll enjoy the interesting challenges of the competitive retail space, and you’ll have a 360-degree impact—rather than on just one part of the business. You’ll see your contributions come to life in virtually every area of this dynamic enterprise. And you’ll grow and be challenged in your career while having a healthy balance with life outside of work.

Are you ready to excel in the fast-changing retail environment? Are you curious about the processes and technology that will take Finance into the future? Then you’ll enjoy joining our team. The Inventory Accounting team strives to ensure the accuracy of financial inventory valuation through ongoing monitoring and research of inventory transactions and activity. Here, you will also collaborate to influence the design and testing of new processes and technology to facilitate a transition from retail to cost accounting for inventory. Your ideas will be critical to ensuring the success of Target’s business initiatives and core retail operations.

As a Sr Manager, Inventory Accounting, you will manage a team focused on our accounting close processes. This role ensures the completeness, accuracy and timeliness of monthly and quarterly journal entries, analysis and controls. You will also support the design and testing of new business processes with the transition to cost accounting. You will leverage and build storytelling skills to educate business partners, both internal and external, on key risks and impacts related to inventory given Target’s evolving process and technology landscape. This includes communication with senior Finance leadership. Job duties may change at any time due to business needs.
