Position Description

Do you enjoy crafting visually stunning dashboards and visualizations in Tableau? Do you thrive when you can build reports that influence crucial business decisions by getting the right information into the hands of the right people, at the right time? Our team needs Business Intelligence Report Developers who are self-starters that can prioritize their time, priorities, and multiple projects simultaneously as well as explain complex issues in a simple and intuitive way.

Toptal prides itself on being an organization that focuses on the data.
