At our core, our purpose is ingrained in who we are, what we value, and how we work. It’s how we care, grow, and win together.
Target Global Supply Chain and Logistics is evolving at a rapid pace. We are constantly reimagining how to get the right product to the guest better, faster and more cost effectively than before. We are operating smarter, better utilizing our resources and leveraging data driven decisions to deliver the convenience and service levels our guest demands. We are driven to win in this competitive, rapidly changing business by providing a differentiated and frictionless guest experience. Our teams work with the agility our mission requires, and we rapidly develop and deploy new approaches and processes that improve existing, and enable new capabilities. We’re looking for exceptional people who are proactive, creative, independent, innovative, practical and comfortable with ambiguity. Are you a critical thinker who seeks the root cause and can analyze both qualitatively and quantitatively? Are you a creative problem-solver who simplifies problems, quickly identifies solutions, and can build and execute effective plans to address? If so, you will have success on one of our dynamic teams.
A role on the Supply Chain Operations Intelligence Team (OI Team) means being central to our reimagining within Global Supply Chain and Logistics. This strategic team designs, builds, tests and iterates solutions that drive change to meet the unique and evolving requirements of the future business model, optimize for cost, and facilitate increased speed and flexibility.

Your specific expertise—whether it’s people, process, technology, or data—will be felt well beyond the boundaries of the supply chain organization, positively impacting Target team members and guests alike.
As a Supply Chain Data Analyst, you will continuously strive to automate and simplify workflow monitoring activities by modeling, creating test simulations and produce reports and tools from raw data. You will independently create and manage reporting metrics and determine how best to provide visibility to operation performance via report creation, insights and analyzing system dashboards. You will work with internal data teams to improve key performance metrics and provide actionable insights. This is accomplished by analyzing operational and financial data to inform performance improvement opportunities with an emphasis on understanding key operational performance indicators and the impact they have on expense, which ultimately improves the supply chain’s bottom line. As new tools and reports are deployed, this position creates and facilitates user acceptance testing and drive adoption across the operational team. You will monitor, analyze and adjust daily node operations to minimize adverse impacts to freight flow & adjust inputs and assumptions required to continuously align operational capacities to workload. This impacts the staffing and productivity of the operations to keep the facility on budget. You will plan processes and own the operational execution of performance monitoring routines throughout the shift.
