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.
