  • Ask questions and discuss with technical leads and managers with expectation of driving to solutions with them
  • Participate as the technical lead for refactoring and modularization architecture efforts
  • Participate as a member of the Virtual Architecture Team
  • Report and advise senior leadership on specific issues uncovered and ideas of solutions
  • When making recommendations, you will need to consider multiple proposals (from small tactical solution, to long term ideal solution, to intermediate practical one)
  • Provide documentation, guidance, and support to feature teams and other technical team members on code architecture best practices and target architectures
  • Provide regular updates to the Tableau Executive Team
  • Other duties as assigned.

    Who you are...

    • Experienced. 15+ years' experience in the software industry. 15+ years of demonstrated experience analyzing software architecture to drive technical design solutions. Experience with software design and lifecycle. Proven success with leading large scale code re-architecture and quality efforts. Experience using or building Business Intelligence software is a plus.
    • Highly-Technical. Ability to drill deep on technical implementation. Coding experience is required. Extensive C++ experience required.
    • ---Educated. BS degree in Computer Science or equivalent, advanced degree preferred
    • You are a Recruiter! Tableau hires company builders and, in this role, you will be asked to be on constant lookout for the best talent to bring onboard to help us continue to build one of the best companies in the world!
