I have a new job, starting in late September. It’s with a technology startup you may just have heard of.
Yes, I am moving to Tableau.
I’m very excited and in many ways it’s the least surprising job move ever. I’ve been amazed by the product since first installing v3.1 * and have always harboured a desire to work for this fantastic, growing company. I’ll be a senior product consultant, helping grow the company and share its many benefits with the world. That is pretty much what I do already for The Data Studio and the University of Oxford, except now it’ll be my full-time job.
Between now and then, I’ll try to do a few more blog posts, in an attempt to hit 50 in total. It’s been fantastic blogging and developing the world of Tableau from the user perspective, and now I get to do the same from an employee perspective. I intend to be just as active in the social media scene, so you’ll still be hearing from me.
* incidentally, can you believe that when I started using Tableau, there was no Server product, and you couldn’t do the following:
- customise tooltips
- customise titles
- dual axes
- extract data
- keep your Excel file open while Tableau was connected to it
- maintain Print settings between sessions (oh, you still can’t do that – ah well, I will fight for it internally)
