About us:

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.

And you’ll grow and be challenged in your career while having a healthy balance with life outside of work. Your role will be critical to ensuring the success of Target’s business initiatives and core retail operations.

As a Sr. Accountant you will partner with multiple accounting teams, Income Tax, and Legal on new initiatives, driving efficiency, and utilizing analytics to improve complex processes.  You will work on special projects and ad-hoc analysis to help partners. You will assist with the close and consolidation process, ensuring our legal entity financials are accurate.  You will complete SAP journal entries and review key controls. You will develop strong relationships in order to influence partners and provide client support to teams across the company.

About you:

  • Four-year Accounting degree and 3-6 years of related experience
