Create the server infrastructure to support our hosted AR/Geo platform underpinning projects such as Pokémon GO using Java and Google Cloud. You will work on real-time indexing, querying and aggregation problems at massive scales of hundreds of millions of events per day, all on a single, coherent world-wide instance shared by millions of users.
At least two years of relevant work experience required; in lieu of two years work experience, either a PhD or two relevant internships at large tech companies.
Experience with real-time or asynchronous processing of large-scale datasets or on high QPS frontends.
Experience with Google Cloud or AWS highly desired.
Java, Cloud Computing, NoSQL
Join the Niantic team!
Niantic’s mission is to use emerging technology to create experiences in the real world. We build products that inspire outdoor exploration, exercise, and face-to-face social interaction.
Originally formed at Google in 2010, we became an independent company with a strong group of investors including Nintendo, The Pokémon Company, and Alsop Louie Partners. We build games that get people outside and exploring. We enable our players to have fun while visiting new places, learning about the world around them, and meeting new friends.
We launched Ingress, an immersive real-world mobile game played by millions of people in over 200 countries and territories, and downloaded over 20 million times. We also develop Pokémon GO, which has broken world records and been downloaded over 750 million times in its first year. We announced Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, our latest much-anticipated AR game.
We're a hard-working, fun, and exciting group who love what we do! We have offices located in San Francisco, Sunnyvale, Bellevue, Los Angeles, Tokyo, and Hamburg.
