Is your idea of a great job something you'd do even if you didn't have to? It is for us.
Don't get bogged down by corporate life. We keep things fun and creative. Open doors, open minds.
We help people see and understand data. Since day 1, we've been living by those 7 words.
It's an easy motto to follow: Work hard. Have fun. Then have some more fun.
Worklife quality goes way up when you work with really bright people without egos getting in the way.
Why be surrounded by some suburban corporate park? Go somewhere cool every day.
It's not about living to work hard. It's about working somewhere great to live well. We know what's important.
Wouldn't you love to work on products customers are passionate about? They tell us what they think: good and bad. And we love it.
Who uses our products? Everyone. From Fortune 500 companies, to video game designers, to scientists in the jungles of Central America, to high school principals.

A Department of Defense (DOD) project aimed at increasing people's ability to analyze information. Brought to the Stanford University Computer Science department, the project took flight with Chris Stolte. Stolte, a Ph.D. candidate, was researching visualization techniques for exploring and analyzing relational databases and data cubes. Hungering for a project to change the world, he knew this was it.
and Stolte's Ph.D. advisor, Professor Pat Hanrahan knew it too. A founding member of Pixar and later its chief architect for RenderMan, Pat invented the technology that changed the world of animated film. Pat's invention made it possible to bring some of the world's most beloved characters to the big screen. Buzz Lightyear and Woody, anyone?
Just down the hall from the Google folks, Chris, Pat and a team of Stanford Ph.D.s realized that computer graphics could deliver huge gains in people's ability to understand information. Rather than analyzing data in text form and then creating visualizations of those findings, Chris and Pat invented a technology called VizQL™ by which visualization is part of the journey and not just the destination. Fast analytics and visualization for everyone was born.
was Christian Chabot's reaction when he saw what they invented. Chabot had spent years analyzing data before studying entrepreneurship at Stanford Business School. Together, Christian, Chris and Pat formed a company and spun out of Stanford like so many before them (Google, Yahoo, VMWare). With Christian on board as CEO, Tableau rapidly hit one success after another: its first customer (now Tableau's CFO, Tom Walker), funding from New Enterprise Associates, a PC Magazine award for "Product of the Year" just one year after launch, and a stream of breakthrough new inventions.
