Tableau Software is a company on a mission. We help people see and understand their data. After a highly successful IPO in 2013, Tableau has become a market-defining company in the business intelligence industry. But don’t take our word for it—read what analysts like BARC and Gartner have to say about us. (Spoiler: You’ll find terms like “Leader” and “#1.”)

Tens of thousands of companies and organizations have chosen Tableau. From the executive suites of Fortune 500 companies to the jungles of Central America, from immunology research labs to high school robotics club meetings, our software can be found anywhere people have data and questions. Additionally, journalists, bloggers, and major media web sites have embraced our free product, Tableau Public, for its ability to help them share data online in the form of interactive visualizations. Check out all of our products at: www.tableau.com/product-tour.

Tableau’s culture is casual and high-energy. We are passionate about our product and our mission and we are loyal to each other and our company. We value work/life balance, efficiency, simplicity, freakishly friendly customer service, and making a difference in the world. Tableau offers exceptional professional and financial growth potential.

What you’ll be doing...

You will design and develop server-side software for a next-generation Visual Analytics and Collaboration suite.  As a Core Server developer, you will be working on a Java and C++-based platform on which we build server-based applications.  The server platform is the foundation that allows businesses to analyze large datasets interactively, and people who are passionate about data to bring their interactive data views to life on the public Internet.   You will be able to take on a variety of projects, from building a high-performance backend to a web-based analytics tool, to building robust and highly available clustered services, to extending the abilities of people to collaborate on data at intranet and Internet scales.  You will do this and more in a highly collaborative environment full of talented professionals who are dedicated to helping people “see and understand their data”.


Who you are…  *LI-ZB1

  • Experienced.   You have 7+ years of experience coding and solving complex problems.  You understand what it takes to write software that is used by thousands or millions of people.
  • Relentlessly High Standards.  You believe in automation and writing tests for your own code as a way of maintaining high quality in your products.  You love writing things that “just work” – things that are robust, scalable, and that perform well. 
  • A True Team Player.  You enjoy collaborating, learning from or teaching others so we can all become better developers. 
  • Technically Savvy.  You have solid development skills with Java and ideally some experience with C++.
