Are you excited about helping people see and understand data – from non-profits to research firms, and startups to fortune-500 companies? How about designing tools and experiences that allow people to take messy, complicated data and turn it into a simple, curated thing of beauty? 


Are you energized by working with a range of UX designers to coach them towards better visual communication, and to help enable them to create better solutions? How about being part of forming how AI based features like Ask Data and Explain Data communicate probability to people without misleading them? If this sounds interesting, we’d love to meet you!


This visual design role is part of the Analytics design team. The Analytics design team is part of the larger Tableau design team of over 40 visual and UX designers. In this role you will be working closely with the UX designers on the analytics design team, with the other visual designers in other teams, and with the visual designers in the centralized design language system team.
