What you'll be doing…

As a member of the Engineering Services and Data Infrastructure team, you will be using your software development skills to architect systems and services to modernize our engineering infrastructure to make the product development experience at Tableau the best in the industry. If you love decoding complex systems, designing intuitive service interfaces, and exploring innovative ways to improve developer experience and optimize engineering operations, you will feel right at home.

You will be challenged to leverage creativity and experience to create new features and services that satisfy customer needs and extend their ability to see, understand, and "reach out and touch" their data.

Some of the things you'll be doing include...

  • Create maintainable, well tested services and tooling using languages such as Perl, Python, bash, PowerShell,C#, C++, and Java
  • Design systems, working with IT and service providers to architect and implement well running, supportable systems
  • Establish development and design patterns that enable the next generation of service infrastructure
  • Support an eco-system of continuous delivery pipeline tooling, through integration and automation.
  • Manage, create and integrate a wide-range of tools and services designed to speed-up and facilitating the development experience
  • Monitor the health, reliability and performance of Tableau's Engineering Services, detecting issues quickly and driving quality improvement over time
  • Collaborate with product development teams to understand and aid our customers in establishing and achieving their goals
  • Review and provide detailed feedback on documentation and test plans for features

  • A True Team Player. You enjoy collaborating, learning from your colleagues, teaching others and ability to work well independently.
  • Motivated to Learn. You have an insatiable curiosity and have a need to understand exactly how things work.
  • Experienced. 5+ years of professional software development experience (Java, Python or C++)
  • Big Thinker. You can see the big picture, think at scale, and are willing to make bold choices. You think big and fail fast.
