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.

    I have been working at Tableau Software


    Tableau is great about letting you drive. Unlike other bigger companies, working at Tableau allows you to have an idea and watch it come to life. We're still in the build and grow phase that promotes that creativity and innovation and celebrates that rather than saying no, or "we've tried that before so we know it doesn't work".
    Huge career growth potential and just a downright fun place to work.


    There truly aren't any cons here to report!

    I dealt with a Tableau recruiter named Vanessa who was kind, to the point, and gave substantive answers to my questions about the company. While I unfortunately don't think I'm moving forward in the process I have been affirmed that Tableau is a stand up company. I'll continue pursuing a career with Tableau and hope that another role is a better fit.
