What you'll be doing...
To help users understand their data, first Tableau needs to understand it. Tableau’s Data Modeling tools let the users describe the various sources of their data and how they relate to each other. Tableau uses this information to build expressive, efficient queries that retrieve the users’ data to produce the visualizations that answer their questions.
On the Data Modeling team we are building these capabilities into Tableau, and we need your help to make it happen!
As a technical leader on the team what you’ll be doing includes…
- Designing and coding platforms to build the next generation platform for expressing the diversity of users’ data models.
- Provide solutions and APIs for the platform which are expressive of the needs of multiple interfaces for users to author their models, and by Tableau’s database query code to build plans for retrieving the necessary data efficiently.
- Collaborating with engineers, product managers, designers, and technical writers to gather and prioritize features and requirements.
- Contributing to code reviews, designs, and team process.
- Play a key role in evolving our codebase by writing clean, efficient and maintainable code which must be well-tested.
- Troubleshoot issues in technically challenging code (C++) using centralized logs, post-mortem debugging, diagnostic tools and other techniques.

Relentlessly High Standards. You understand what it takes to write software that is used by thousands or millions of people. You love delivering high-quality experiences to the customer that “just work” through software that is robust, scalable and performs well.
