Job Details

Tableau Research (*research.tableau.com* <http://research.tableau.com/>) is
an industrial research team focused on Tableau’s mission of helping people
see and understand data. As part of Tableau’s Office of the CTO (OCTO), we
work to be a source of new and inspiring product and technology directions
for Tableau each year, generating ideas that influence, drive, or
significantly change what Tableau delivers to customers. As a research lab,
we aim to both provide value to Tableau and a foundation for research
scientists to do world-class research.

We are looking for *early-career* research scientists, although prior
experience at an industry research lab or a startup is definitely a plus!
An ideal candidate has deep technical experience in a domain relevant to
Tableau such as 1) applied ML/AI to support visual analytics and
human-in-the-loop systems, 2) NLP for search and content retrieval as well
as for question and answering systems, 3) data-driven collaboration and
presentation, or 4) HCI techniques for multimodal interaction to support
data exploration.
