The interview process tests what you can do, not what you have done in the past, although past achievements are also an opportunity to demonstrate your aptitude and attitude. The process helps you demonstrate your ability to learn, as well as your curiosity and your passion for data.
Skills based assessment using the tool you will be trained on. Proves dedication and interest level
No focus on the CV at all. It's all about passion, wish to learn and improve, effort and interest.
Tableau dashboard on data you choose. Tableau dashboard on data they give you, present that back and small interview. No CV!
It's really good. No CVs, no cover letters. You have to create a data visualisation, submit it for feedback, and iterate on it. Then you're invited in for an interview to present what you made.

Initially, rather than give a CV you submit a tableau data visualisation. If the visualisation shows relevant potential you are phone screened and if you are deemed suitable you move onto the final stage. For the final stage, you are given a dataset to analyse, visualise and present to 3 or 4 company members. After the presentation, you are then critiqued as well as given standard interview questions
The first step is to create a visualization of some data you choose. You publish this online and the company will give you feedback which you can take on board if you want. After this there is a phone screen interview which felt quite informal - where you talk through your visualisation and give and gain some context. Then they send everyone the same dataset and get them to create a visualisation based on that. Next you come into the office to present that to the company and also have another interview.
You'll be asked to submit a piece of work in Tableau Public. From there, you may be asked to iterate and improve. Then you may be advanced to 2 rounds of interviews.
The process is relaxed, technical and iterative - providing candidates with the ability to be themselves, show off their prowess with the software that we use, and give candidates a taste of the role if successful. No CVs was super refreshing - why do so many employers still insist on them?!
The first round of the hiring process was to submit a visualization on Tableau Public and speak with the head coach. For the second round, everyone was given the same data set and asked to design a viz, and the interview was 15 minutes of presenting your viz and 15 min traditional questions.
I was asked to download the 15 days Tableau trial and to pick any dataset I was interested in and send it to the indicated email. I wrote a few lines on the email introducing myself and I attached my Tableau workbook. I then had an interview with Andy on the phone and I was invited to the second part of the process. I was sent a dataset that was the same as everyone else. I was asked to build a dashboard with it and to present it in front of three people. I then changed the room and had another interview where I was asked more specific questions about the job and myself
Presentation of the project built with the software we use and sell, few personal questions.
It's a very practical process. Applicants design a visualisation and send this in for the head coach and others to review, followed by an interview.
Task with possibility to get feedback and iterate
