Tableau Software – Why Work For Us?


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.

undefinedTableau’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, as well as the following benefits, which vary by geography.

  • 100% employer paid medical and vision coverage for employees; 85% for families

  • Short and long-term disability coverage

  • Public transit reimbursement for staff

  • Relocation assistance for employees

  • 100% employer paid dental and orthodontia coverage for employees; 85% for families

  • Flexible Spending Accounts: medical & childcare

  • Life Insurance plans for employees

  • 401(k) plans for employees with match


We started in the computer science department at Stanford, and soon after, we established our home base in Seattle. Now we are rapidly expanding all over the globe.

    In addition to excellent benefits (100%-paid health, stock benefits, commuter subsidy, free food, amazing parties) there is an incredible culture. Everyone truly embodies our core value of “humble smart”. I have honestly never worked with smarter people in my life. There is a high degree of collaboration with little emphasis on title or position. We are great about giving people the benefit of the doubt and quick to recognize a job well done.

    Though everyone works very hard, we routinely take the time to pause after a big project to celebrate...something we do quite well if I do say so myself. :) Everything from silent disco dancing parties to Mariners baseball games. We know how to celebrate and foster friendships among coworkers. Recently, during bike-to-work month, we received free, specially catered meals, free Tableau jerseys and free bike tune ups. It was a great way to go above and beyond to celebrate the event!

    I feel very valued as an employee at Tableau and highly recommend working here.


    It can be challenging to get one’s foot in the door. (Tableau is such an awesome place to work, everyone wants to be here.) It can take time and many attempts to move forward in the applicant process.

    The growth rate is incredible, and as such, there are some growing pains when it comes to onboarding within teams. Approval processes can also be lengthy as each organization grows. Thankfully, these are known areas of opportunity, and processes are currently being built to address them.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring awesome people! Continue to keep culture an important part of the company.

Within these data are huge, unparalleled opportunities for human advancement. But to turn opportunities into reality, people need the power of data at their fingertips.
