Life at Niantic Create the real‑world metaverse with us
Most of us come to Niantic to build technology with a positive impact on the world. We value mutual respect, creativity, audacious thinking, and a genuine commitment to making the world a better place through our products.

A warning about recruiting scams

Our Niantic team has been made aware of individuals and third-party agencies claiming to be Niantic recruiters or team members in an attempt to solicit personal information via email and online social platforms.

Please note that any individual claiming to contact you on behalf of Niantic must have an official Niantic domain email ( Members of our team will not use any sort of third-party domain for communications. If you believe you have received any unauthorized messages, we recommend that you do not respond and delete the communication.

A place for every perspective
We take pride in making products people around the world love. That’s why we strive to bring as many perspectives as possible into our work.
Our values Niantic inspires people to explore the world, together.
Our values Niantic inspires people to explore the world, together.
Start with a worthy goal We seek to build products that inspire people to see the world differently and to move, explore, and enjoy it together, using technology to enrich the lives of our users through exploration, exercise, and social interaction.
Invite everyone on board We want to create the best products. Doing that requires the best ideas from a diverse team — and those ideas will only emerge if we provide a safe and supportive environment where those different points of view can be shared.
Lead from the front We know that the best way for our leaders to inspire our teams is to be willing to roll up our sleeves and do whatever it takes to help the team and the company succeed.
Set waypoints, and then stay on course We welcome healthy debate that is supported by data and logic. Once we make a decision (often by consensus, or by a group leader when needed) we commit to it 100% so that we can move forward with speed and confidence to the next waypoint.
Speak the truth, to serve the mission We speak the truth to serve a constructive purpose, useful to the company and our goals. We don’t support speech which is cynical, untrue, or designed to harm others.
See it through We know accountability comes from finishing the job, not simply responding to email. When someone at Niantic says “I’ve got this,” you know they will see it all the way through.
Weather storms We won’t always succeed, and that’s OK. When we fail, we look for how to improve, not who to blame.
Summit mountains We recognize we’re taking on massive challenges that will bring us into competition with some of the largest and most powerful companies in the world. We are motivated by knowing that focus, agility, and perseverance are our advantages, even against the most formidable competition.
