Job Description

As an Engineering Manager in our eMIP, you will be in Target’s exclusive 12-month on-the-job training program focused on the leadership of engineering teams.

You will receive a mentor, an individualized curation of training, and an advisory board to help connect you at Target during and after the program. Up to 50% of your week will be devoted to hands-on learning and development, while working in a Lead Engineer role. After the 12-month program, the goal is for you to be ready to be considered for a Sr. Engineering Manager role within one of Target’s Technology teams.

Please apply directly to the requisition and further application instructions will be emailed to you. This program is open to qualified female or african american candidates for the eMIP cohort.
