Working at Tableau• At Tableau Software, it’s our mission to help you see andunderstand your data• Our headquarters is in Fremont,WA by Lake Union.• It’s a really beautiful place with an amazing bridge overhead.Very visually stimulating.• There’s even a huge statue of a troll at the end of the bridge,just up the street from where we work. You really have tosee it to know how cool it is.• We’re a really wacky bunch and sometimes wear clownnoses in the rain. No joke.You’d laugh out loud.
