Are you interested in coaching and developing software engineers to craft popular global games with real-time scalability challenges? Niantic is seeking an Engineering Manager to run a game engineering team that comprises between 7 to 12 engineers. You'll be working on a real-world Augmented Reality game, which may include Pokémon GO, Ingress, or Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. During a portion of your time, you will also perform hands-on coding on non-time-critical components.
You will be paired with a Technical Lead, who will be responsible for the team's technical architecture while you handle the people-management aspect of the engineering team.
Niantic is the world’s leading AR technology company, sparking creative and engaging journeys in the real world. Our products inspire outdoor exploration, exercise, and meaningful social interaction.
Originally formed at Google in 2011, we became an independent company in 2015 with a strong group of investors including Nintendo, The Pokémon Company, and Alsop Louie Partners.
