In today’s world Guests’ technologies expectations are very very high. When they login to they expect it to be available performant and quite simply work. When they choose the drive-up fulfillment option they expect their order to be available for pickup the same day in a couple hours. These and nearly every guest interaction that enables Target to be a $100B+ retailer is powered by Cloud and Compute’s platforms.

To meet these expectations our platforms must be ubiquitous reliable performant and easy for engineers to use. Due to Target’s sheer size existing solutions are often not the right ones for us. As a result our platforms are purpose-built in-house by caring talented and diverse teams.

Our platforms provide the compute storage deployment monitoring telemetry cloud hardware IoT and data science capabilities for all of Target.

Sound interesting? We want to meet you.

Here’s a smattering of approaches important to us and the technologies we use:

  • Diversity equity and inclusion are core to our culture.
  • Meeting the reliability and performance commitments made to our customers are the most important part of our job.
  • Our engineering teams are empowered to choose the right technology to solve the problem. Some common technologies currently in use include: Golang Java/Groovy/Kotlin Docker Kubernetes Kafka GitHub Artifactory the elastic stack InfluxDB Grafana Postgres Cassandra Mongo React the Google Cloud Platform and Azure. (We focus on problem solving. Technology can be learned and the skills can be acquired over time.)
  • Everything we do is “as-code” in version control. We don’t like clicking buttons or doing things manually.
  • We have a collaborative pull-request process so you’ll always have a way to thumbs up or down things you catch.
  • Nearly everything should have test cases and go through a continuous integration/continuous deployment process.

  • Create new and contribute to existing open-source projects.
  • Evangelize an Agile mindset within Target.
