After 5 exhilarating years at Tableau on December 29th, I said my goodbyes and walked out of the Seattle offices for the last time.
Tableau was a great learning experience for me. Watching the company grow nearly 7 fold, going through an IPO and becoming the gold standard for business intelligence…
I worked with very talented people, delivered great features and engaged with thousands of enthusiastic customers.
It was a blast.
But there is something about starting anew. It is the new experiences and challenges we face that make us grow. And there’re very few things I like more in life than a good challenge 🙂
I flew out of Seattle on December 30th to start a new life in Santa Fe, New Mexico and join a small startup called Descartes Labs on January 2nd.
At Descartes Labs, we’re building a data refinery for remote sensing data; being used for a growing set of scenarios from detecting objects in satellite images using deep learning to creating the most accurate crop forecasts on the market and understanding the spread of Dengue fever, using a massively scalable computational infrastructure with over 40 Petabytes of image data with 50+ Terabytes new data added daily. If you haven’t heard of us already, check us out. You won’t be disappointed.
I will continue writing but Tableau won’t be the primary focus for new content on the blog anymore. I will try to answer Tableau related questions as time permits. Although I must say that several of Descartes Labs’ customers also use Tableau so I am using Tableau quite often on my new job as well.
To the new year and new beginnings!
