Top 5 Reasons Why We Want to Meet YOU!

By Daniel Hom 26 Aug, 2011

Tableau is looking for our future superstars, and we’re going to the source to find them! This fall, we’ll be on campus at four universities for career fairs, and several more throughout the year. Come visit us at the following schools:

  • Carnegie Mellon Technical Opportunities Conference & Career Fair (September 21, 2011)
  • Stanford Computer Forum Job Fair (October 12, 2011)
  • Princeton Science & Technology Job Fair (October 14, 2011)
  • University of Washington Affiliates Recruiting Fair (October 20, 2011)

Need some reasons to get excited to meet us? Here are five reasons why we are excited to meet you:

  1. We're on a Mission. We have an unshakable belief that Tableau’s products will improve the world – one person at a time. Going on campus to great schools is an opportunity for us to connect with other people who want to be part of this amazing experience.
  2. We're Building a Great Product. You’ll be developing cutting-edge software in the visual analytics and collaborative data analysis space. Day in and day out, you will be challenged to leverage your creativity to create new products that extend customer ability to see, understand, and “reach out and touch” their large data sets in real time.
  3. We’re Data Geeks! We are passionate about using our products and you are too! You have a strong educational background, with a deep understanding of the power of databases, business intelligence suites and data analysis tools. Data and analytics are in growing demand: the consultancy McKinsey forecasts a shortage of millions of workers with analytical talent.
  4. We Work as a Team. We are looking for future team members with energy and enthusiasm to spare! You think out-of-the-box and wow people with your interesting angles and quality work. You love the creative process – whether that’s developing a new feature or recruiting a great salesperson. Sounds like someone we’d like to work with!
  5. We Delight our Customers. You’re a high performing student who loves to achieve great things. You love tackling the most difficult of challenges and know how to get to the best solution. Don’t worry, you’ll fit right in with our team of service minded, customer focused individuals.

Hope to see you there!

My name is Victor and I am a fourth year Management Information Systems and Accounting student at the Sauder School of Business on UBC Campus. This summer I had the co-op opportunity to work for WorkSafeBC as a Business Information Analyst. At WorkSafeBC, I had the opportunity to use Tableau 6.0 and was very impressed with the features and functions of this tool. I am interested in working for Tableau after my graduation which is in a year. I understand the growth and the potential that Tableau has and would love get in touch with someone. My contact number is 778-837-3459 and my email is

Hope to talk to you soon!

I was hoping to inquire into the possibility of the tablet version ever being available for android?

Re: Victor. I will forward your post to our recruiting team, though I would encourage you to contact them directly.

Re: Android question. While 6.1 is currently optimized for the iPad, we're always examining and testing other solutions, including the possibility of supporting the Android OS.

Well this sounds a whole lot more hopeful than another actual email I received. They ie someone from your support told me to just go buy an I pad. A little late for that. I do enjoy your software and hope you choose to expand your support further including the android platform.
Thanks for the response!
