Tableau Ambassadors

Tableau has an amazing community, and it wouldn't be half of what it is without the people who fuel it. The Tableau Ambassador program was created to recognize extraordinary rock stars in all areas of our community.

The mission of the Tableau Ambassador program is to recognize community members who connect, collaborate, and share because they realize the value of helping people see and understand their data.

Tableau Ambassadors embody the spirit and voice of the community. They keep us honest and push us to do more. They teach and share while fostering positive and supportive behavior within the community. They give credit where credit is due, and help nurture inclusivity. They shine the spotlight on new voices, innovative ideas, and allow us to reach more people to help them see and understand their data.

Ambassadors are invited to serve a one-year term in one of six branches:

  • Community Forum Ambassadors
  • Social Media Ambassadors
  • User Group Leader Ambassadors
  • Tableau Public Ambassadors
  • Tableau Student Ambassadors
  • DataDev Ambassadors

Tableau Community Forum Ambassadors

Tableau Forum Ambassadors are the stewards of the Forums—helping maintain a healthy and engaging community forum by assisting users with quality responses, flagging inappropriate content for moderation or removal, and approving new users’ content.

Social Media Ambassadors

Social Ambassadors are inclusive social leaders who not only create and share engaging content on social media. They go above and beyond to drive thought-provoking conversations about data, champion others, welcome people to the community, support community members, and amplify key messages across all social channels.

User Group Leader Ambassadors

Tableau User Group Leader Ambassadors are dedicated to helping communities, and community members thrive by leading their local or virtual User Group! They share best practices that they’ve learned and provided mentorship to new leaders. They are asked to help support with feedback on product testing for the Splash and Community Forums platforms and are invited to present on calls for all leads.

Tableau Public Ambassadors

Tableau Public Ambassadors show what Tableau can do creatively, driving a feedback loop and healthy space for connection, welcoming newcomers, and modeling engagement. We provide opportunities for collaboration with the Tableau Public Dev team and consult with them to build successful community programs like IronViz, VOTD, and ask for suggestions and support when selecting new featured authors.

Tableau Student Ambassadors

Student Ambassadors are Tableau champions in higher education, empowering, and inspiring others to acquire fundamental skills to improve their employability. Student Ambassadors support Tableau’s Academic Programs through on-campus events and social media campaigns, which prepare students for success in today’s data-driven world.




DataDev Ambassadors

A DataDev uses the Tableau APIs and are curious, innovative, and goal-driven. They like to tinker with new tools and apply them to fresh ideas. DataDevs are community-driven and want to share their technical knowledge with others.
