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.

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.

    Average Interview


    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Tableau Software.


    I had an interview with a recruiter and then a phone interview with the hiring manager. Both went well and after that I was invited to do a round of interviews in onsite and a demo. They wanted me to put days of prep into the demo and also be onsite for 4.5 hours the day of. Which would have been fine except they weren't willing to tell me what compensation was for the position. Clearly they were interested in having me move forward but still wouldn't share comp? I decided not to move forward with the process because I just couldn't see putting in days of work prepping and time off of my current job to interview for a position I didn't even know if I would take based on pay. Except for that one issue- everyone was nice and informative!
