      Hi All - My name is Ian Rubiano and I work at Staples, Inc. (HQ is Framingham, MA). Some of you may remember I presented at the October BTUG on how we implemented our Self Service Solution on an Enterprise scale here at Staples. Hopefully at least some of you enjoyed that presentation because I am now looking for 2 Tableau developers. These roles are within the business but on a BI focused team and will involve Tableau heavily. Alteryx development experience is also preferred but not required.


      Check out the full listing below. Feel free to reach out to me with any questions or referrals. To apply yourself please use this link: Job description - Staples global careers


      Thank you and happy vizing!
