Diversity & Inclusion Connecting to the mission.

Our mission is to make our experiences diverse and inclusive of all - starting with our teams.

Our mission is to explore the world, together. Together means all of us.

The work of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) is what helps us give meaning to the word “together” in our mission.

As we build the real-world metaverse, we must ensure that diverse perspectives are reflected, and that our products both reach and positively impact as many people on the planet as possible.

As Niantics, we strive to create an environment where each person can be the very best version of themselves. We know that this is only possible when we celebrate openness, value constructive dialog, and foster a culture that thrives on curiosity, and encourages creativity and innovation. We are the best versions of ourselves when we learn from, respect, and empower one another.

Initiative: Voyager Program

As Niantics, we saw a need to increase the pipeline of women and underrepresented groups in software engineering, so we eagerly developed a program to address the issue. The Voyager Program is supported in partnership between our Engineering and People teams to provide opportunities in Software Engineering to talented individuals from non-traditional backgrounds.

We’re thrilled to announce the next iteration of Niantic’s Voyager Program for 2024! Niantic will be offering a scholarship + living stipend to 14 talented individuals in the San Francisco or Seattle area, in order to attend a 12 week full-time coding bootcamp that starts in July!

In September, we’ll open up applications for a separate, paid, in-person apprenticeship program.* Apprentices will immerse themselves in our dynamic work environment for 6 months and gain invaluable industry experience. We’re looking for applicants with a deep commitment to learning, a curiosity to explore new frontiers, and the resilience and determination to achieve their goals!
