Find work, #DataFam

When we talked to the most active Tableau Public authors to understand if and how they used the platform to source work, we learned that many were already using Tableau Public as a portfolio to land projects. From designing and creating dashboards, and data analysis and data science to providing Tableau training and automating tasks with Tableau APIs, the community is actively putting their Tableau skills to work.

We wanted to make it easier for Tableau experts to connect with prospective clients. And so, the Hire Me button was born. Here’s how it works:

  1. Sign in to Tableau Public, navigate to your profile page, and select Edit profile
  2. Select Available for Hire
  3. Confirm your email address
  4. Review the Tableau legal terms
  5. … and voila, the Hire Me button will display on your profile page!

Managers and recruiters, find top Tableau talent

Our survey of Tableau Public authors revealed that people aren’t just finding work, they’re also hiring talent with Tableau skills. Until now, they were finding and connecting with talent on LinkedIn, Twitter, and every other corner of the Internet imaginable. But what better place to find top Tableau talent than the world’s greatest data community?

Now hiring managers and recruiters can simply click on the Hire Me button to connect with an available Tableau expert. From there, they’ll submit a short contact form to start the conversation. It’s a quick, easy, and straightforward way to find, contact, and engage with Tableau experts from around the world.
