Who we are…

At Tableau, we are on a mission to help people see and understand data. We create intuitive and powerful analytics software that enables thousands of leading organizations and millions of people around the world to find insights in their data. The Augmented Analytics team is looking to advance us on this journey by putting the power of statistical analysis and machine learning within reach of anyone with a question about their data.

We are looking for an energetic and creative Principal Software Engineer to join our team and be part of our vision. You will be part of a talented team of engineers who are dedicated to building a groundbreaking product in the Analytics space, working in a fast paced and iterative environment. If we are successful, people will be able to make better decisions and optimize outcomes in industries from healthcare to manufacturing and agriculture to transportation.

Some of the things you'll be doing include…

  • Being the technical lead for the team, responsible for knowing and owning technical decisions like architecture, technology choices, and deployment.

  • Building analytics software that is highly performant and reacts with low latency, even on huge datasets.

  • Working across the Tableau C++ code base to integrate our stand-alone cloud software into Tableau products. Occasionally, diving into modules built with TypeScript and end-to-end automation code using Java.

  • Working across teams to make sure we are building great experiences for customers while using new infrastructure and technologies.

  • Deploying and managing our server instance, including upgrading database schema.

  • Helping product managers and designers iteratively create and refine their plans.

  • Working with the entire team in a collaborative environment where all suggestions are welcomed, and all ideas thoughtfully considered.

Let's talk about you...

  • You’re an Implementer. You’re looking for a job where you can get hands on with the whole system, while working with a diverse and capable team.

  • You’re Technical. You know how to keep an EC2 instance up & running, how to tell when it fails, and what to do about it.

  • You're Customer-Focused. You have opinions about how users will use the product, and what problem they might run into. Being interested and willing to dive into and understand customers' problems is both helpful and rewarding.

  • You’re Quality-Focused. You write code that’s well-tested, performs well, and fails gracefully. Experience dealing with large datasets in a highly performant way is a bonus.

  • You're Self-Motivated. You take initiative and can turn ideas into real features. You enjoy discussing use cases & user flows with product managers & designers, and contributing ideas to those discussions.

  • You’re Collaborative. You enjoy collaborating with, learning from, and teaching others so we all can become better.

  • You’re Respectful. You treat your colleagues with honesty, kindness, and respect and actively do your part to create a positive work environment.

  • You’re Humble. You are unafraid to ask questions when you don’t know the answer, and you approach disagreements with the possibility that you might be wrong.

  • You’re A Recruiter! Tableau hires company builders, and you will be asked to be on constant lookout for the best talent to bring onboard to help us continue to build one of the best companies in the world!
