Customers of all sizes use our products, from Fortune 500 companies, to video game designers, to scientists in the jungles of Central America, to high school principals.

What you’ll be doing …
Tableau’s products are highly visual and interactive. You’ll be developing cutting-edge software for the best visual analytics and collaborative data analysis products available. You will help us make our authoring product even more capable with a focus on allowing people to “reach out and touch” their data. You will be able to take on a variety of projects such as adding new types of visualizations or analytical operations that extend the kinds of questions people can answer. You will also be involved in adding new capabilities that allow people to effectively tell stories with their data. You can help us to evolve our product architecture to support new client platforms. You will do all of this while working on a team that cares deeply about expressive, direct, and simple user interfaces.
Who you are …
Are you a Qt guru, or are you a top developer who would be interested in learning Qt? You love to code and have a passion for solving complex problems. You write tests for your code as a way to maintain high quality. You understand what it takes to write software that is used by thousands, even millions, of people. You love products that “just work” – that are robust, scalable, and perform well. You enjoy collaborating, learning from your colleagues, and teaching others. Finally, you have solid development skills with object oriented languages like C++. If you have Qt experience or have developed products that run on more than one platform, you are especially well qualified to join our team. Ideally, you also have knowledge of relational databases and data warehousing.
