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 are 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 Accounting, 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.

As a Senior Accountant on the Financial Reporting team you will facilitate timely and accurate month-end close responsibilities, including completing SAP journal entries and internal management reporting. You will work closely with the company’s Corporate Financial Planning team to ensure forecast is properly reflected in management reporting, and with the Data Sciences team to ensure accurate data is used in ad hoc financial reporting. You will work on special projects and ad-hoc analysis as needed. You will develop strong internal and external relationships in order to influence partners and provide client support to teams across the company. You will indirectly manage talent including the coaching and training of others on the team. You will drive process improvements by using data analytics and innovation. You will enforce governance policies around accounting and reporting and maintain a strong internal control environment.

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

About you:
• Four-year degree in Accounting or Finance
• 3+ years of Accounting experience
• Experience working with Excel
• Knowledge of GAAP
• Ability to work cross functionally with strong communication skills
