For starters, it pays well. The pay is often higher than other more technically challenging jobs in the data science profession. According to Glassdoor, the average salary for a Tableau developer is $81,514, which is higher than database developers, statisticians, and data analysts. (See footnote for more salary details.)
The work-life balance is also good. You can often work remotely and jobs in this field rarely require much overtime. If you become really good and market yourself effectively, you can work on a contract-by-contract basis, thus improving both flexibility and income.
Tableau development is also in high demand. After working for a single year as a Tableau developer, you will get calls from recruiters frequently. Sometimes multiple calls within a single week.
And best of all – it’s the most creative job within business intelligence. There’s no other job in this field that allows you to exercise more aesthetic flare and storytelling abilities than Tableau development.
Have you considered changing jobs recently? You’re not alone. The job market is hot right now and you’ve probably gotten more than a few phone calls from recruiters lately.
While this is a good thing for employees, high turnover is a problem for employers. And it’s especially bad for data and analytics teams.
Turnover disrupts the business ecosystem and the data and insights that come with it. It will impact both data and report quality, as well as team efficiency. Not to mention that any new employees will have to establish new relationships with stakeholders to learn the business needs. So what’s causing this high turnover? And how can employers prevent their people from leaving?
