Since childhood, Ashwin Sekar has always wanted to build things! Originally wanted to get into construction, Ashwin later found building software was more gratifying and indeed an actual passion. Ashwin has been a software engineer ever since, and has a Master’s in Computer Science from Illinois Tech, Chicago and over eight years of software development experience. Ashwin joined Tableau over a year ago and recently joined the Extensions team. Outside of work, Ashwin loves anything outdoors—kayaking, biking, hiking and soccer.
