Join the Niantic team!

Niantic’s mission is to use emerging technology to enrich our experiences as human beings in the physical world. We seek to build products that inspire movement, exploration, and face-to-face social interaction.

Originally formed at Google in 2010, we are now an independent company with a strong group of investors including Nintendo, The Pokémon Company, and Alsop Louie Partners. We’re focused on building games that get people outside and exploring by enabling our players to have fun while visiting new places, learning about the world around them, and meeting new friends. We’ve launched Ingress, an immersive real-world mobile game played by millions of people; it's been downloaded more than 20 million times and is played in over 200 countries and territories worldwide. We've also developed Pokémon GO, which has broken records around the world and has been downloaded more than 750 million times in its first year.

We're a hard working, fun, and exciting group who love what we do! We have offices located in San Francisco, Sunnyvale, Seattle, Los Angeles, Tokyo, and Hamburg.
