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,

presentation, or 4) HCI techniques for multimodal interaction to support
data exploration.

   to help people collect, explore, interact with, analyze, visualize, and
   derive actionable insights from data

   Validate and communicate research innovation to the rest of Tableau via
   prototypes, peer-reviewed publications, whitepapers, and presentations

   Work collaboratively with other research scientists, developers, and
   product managers to drive research results to product impact
