Tableau does reverse Google, adds Kirkland to Fremont

Tableau Software is expanding yet again, opening a new office in Google’s former digs in downtown Kirkland.

The business intelligence/data visualization software company plans to immediately hire 20 people at the new office and eventually have 100 employees there.

Tableau is based in Fremont, where the company doubled employment last year. In a release today, the private company said its 2010 sales grew 106 percent to just under $40 million and it plans to hire a total of 150 this year.

Google’s local presence began in Kirkland and extended west to Fremont, where it now has a second cluster of offices just across the bridge from Tableau.

Like Google, Tableau is the product of research done at Stanford.
