https://www.seattletimes.com/opinion/editorials/tableau-deal-affirms-seattles-business-climate-strength-and-challenges/

Salesforce, the San Francisco business-software titan that bought Tableau on Monday, is pledging to grow the Fremont data-visualization company and Salesforce’s existing Seattle team into a second headquarters. It will start with around 3,000 employees in Seattle and a strong philanthropic tradition at both Salesforce and Tableau.

    I have been working at my desk in Tableau's new Kirkland Urban office, along with a bunch of other folks, for the last couple of weeks or so. Really nice.

      A lot better before the 4 year cliff than after, especially given the major boost in our stock from the pending acquisition. Generally speaking, it's pretty good for developers (can't speak for others) but not as high as some.

      The pay is competitive with other top companies, but more heavily based on stock, almost no sign on. But TC is on par.
      If you joined before the acquisition announcement, $$$$$$

      That feel when everyone sold their stock on Friday before the announcement 😭

      The compensation is very good though. Even before the acquisition.

      Yep, pretty much same TC as FAANG, but different distribution

    Salesforce (NYSE: CRM) already has around 1,000 employees in Washington state and a Bellevue office less than five miles from Tableau’s planned Kirkland office. Benioff said he has hoped to expand in the region for a while, and he plans to grow Salesforce and Tableau Seattle-area presence.

      Tableau plans to open its new 100,000-square-foot office in the Kirkland Urban development this summer. Tableau just moved its headquarters last year when it expanded into a 110,000-square-foot building in Fremont near its former headquarters.
      Tableau had 4,286 employees worldwide at the end of March, up from 3,663 a year prior. In 2018, Tableau had 2,130 employees in Washington, with a large majority in the Puget Sound region.
