Job Details

What you’ll be doing…
VizQL Server is the service at the heart of Tableau’s Analytics capabilities and our team is on a mission to ensure customers have a delightful, responsive experience with our product. The Viz Session Management team orchestrates Tableau’s Analytics components within VizQL Server to deliver a performant, scalable experience for users’ interactive viewing and authoring sessions. Your work will directly improve the customer experience and the value of Tableau’s brand for our growing cloud-based Analytics community in Tableau Online and Public, as well as for our larger Enterprise customers.

Some of the things you’ll do include…
Own and extend C++ components within VizQL Server responsible for caching, resource management and service health.
Understand and improve performance, scaling and resource usage for the C++ and Java code that manages users’ authoring/viewing sessions with Tableau’s Analytics platform.
Work within your team and cross-team to define and implement features that increase VizQL Server’s ability to efficiently handle Internet scale traffic and maintain high availability.
Play a key role in evolving our codebase into smaller, more independent components, influencing API standards and system design.
Participate in design and code reviews, breaking down and estimating work. Make pragmatic design decisions that improve code quality and reduce code complexity over time.

Who you are…
Experienced. You have software development experience in modern C++. You are also comfortable working in a managed language such as Java or C#.
Technical. You have a strong understanding of concurrency, asynchronous programming and synchronization, as well as other low-level primitives. You know what it takes to deliver high-scale, highly-available services to cloud-hosted environments and are comfortable with technical deep dives into networking, operating systems, infrastructure and storage.
Passionate. You have a passion for solving complex problems and are always growing your skills as an engineer. You work with those around you to improve the quality of our systems, code and engineering practices.
Team Player. You enjoy collaborating, learning from and teaching others so we all become better engineers. You assume good intent in others and actively do your part to make a positive work environment.
Strong Communicator. You effectively present your design ideas and results to the team, maintain clear technical documentation for the areas you own, ask questions and apply active listening skills.
You are a Recruiter! Tableau hires company builders and, in this role, you will be asked to be on the constant lookout for the best talent to bring onboard to help us continue to build one of the best companies in the world!
