Target as a tech company? Absolutely. We’re the behind-the-scenes powerhouse that fuels Target’s passion and commitment to cutting-edge innovation. We anchor every facet of one of the world’s best-loved retailers with a strong technology framework that relies on the latest tools and technologies—and the brightest people—to deliver incredible value to guests online and in stores.

The team proactively finds security vulnerabilities, test responses, and strengthens security offerings using coordinated simulated attacks against Target-owned systems and resources using pre-defined and approved tests. As a Lead Engineer, you will independently conduct pen tests, and suggest improvements to the testing process. You will detect and exploit vulnerabilities manually and develop tools and techniques to assist the team with improving skills and capabilities.
