Target Marketing is well known for inspiring and surprising guests, and we pride ourselves on connecting them to the products and experiences they expect and deserve from Target.

We are market experts who insist on a clear and cohesive understanding of our business objectives, guest segments and behaviors, strategies, and tactics, overcoming obstacles and measuring success.

A role with Retail Brand Experience means an opportunity to shape our guests’ experience of our holistic marketing presentation inside our stores. You’ll drive the success of both forward-thinking projects and best practices that have a global impact on the guest experience.
As a Lead Process Engineer, you will work alongside team members from the business to understand the current situation, identify drivers for improvement, analyze root causes of performance gaps, and redesign end-to-end processes as part of the deployment of the Lean/Agile system to a process or business area. You will support an environment that reinforces continuous improvement of business processes, increases consistency, reduces guest pain points, and empowers other team members to enhance the value of the service they provide to guests.
You will lead workstreams as part of process diagnostics and design to identify impactful opportunities for operational improvements across end-to-end value streams. Using a hands-on approach, you’ll ensure the diagnostic, design, and implementation of Lean tools within the business is performed to high standard and consistency with Target’s Operational Excellence program.
