Research Scientist

Company: Tableau Software
Location: Palo Alto
Posted on: March 27, 2020

Job Description:

What you'll be doing:

Tableau Research (research.tableau.com) is an industrial lab created to help Tableau fulfill the mission "to help people see and understand data." Our research scientists are passionate about working on projects that address the real-world problems facing Tableau's business and customers. Many of us are also active members of our global research and technical communities. Our research projects often include opportunities both for Tableau impact and for external thought leadership via talks, papers and other forms of community engagement. Your job as a research scientist will be to design and implement a portfolio of such projects. This will typically involve working collaboratively with your research peers (both inside and outside of Tableau) and may also include engaging with members of the development team.

Tableau is a full-stack product that allows people to find, prepare, query, analyze, visualize and share insights about data. While we seek expertise relevant to any of these areas, we have the following priorities:


  • Helping people find, clean and transform data so it can be queried and analyzed quickly, easily and effectively.
  • Combining powerful analytic methods with high-quality visualization and interaction to create explainable and controllable analytic assistance.
  • Finding, sharing and repurposing the artifacts of visual analytics to offer new ways for people to work collaboratively around data

    Some of the things you'll be doing include:

    • Create a research portfolio that results in impact to Tableau's business and customers.
    • Actively participate with your research and technical communities to hone your expertise, provide thought leadership and build relationships.
    • Design and implement prototypes to validate research innovations and to communicate those innovations to the rest of Tableau.
    • Work collaboratively with developers to support feature design and development.
    • Work with leadership to provide input on strategy and planning.
    • Monitor and report on external research and innovation in areas relevant to Tableau.
    • Be an eager evangelist, whether presenting academic papers or giving talks inside and outside Tableau, including at conferences and to customers.

      Who you are---


      • Experienced: PhD or the equivalent in a technical domain relevant to Tableau Research. Two years postdoc or other industry experience preferred but not necessary. For senior, 5+ years research experience post PhD.
      • Curious and collaborative: ---Visit and engage with teams across the company (Seattle & Kirkland WA, Palo Alto CA, Vancouver BC, Cambridge MA)
      • Tableau focused:---Build significant knowledge of Tableau's customers and business goals to further innovation and help create new products and services.
      • You are a Recruiter! Tableau hires company builders and, in this role, you will be asked to be on the constant lookout for the best talent to bring onboard to help us continue to build one of the best companies in the world
