Are you motivated by keeping products used by hundreds of millions of people safe and secure from abuse? Can you tame huge amounts of highly technical security data? Would you enjoy securing the next generation of planet scale AR games through objective and deeply investigated analysis? We're looking for a data scientist to help improve Niantic's anti-cheat, fraud prevention, and game security capabilities as part of our broader security team.

You'll craft and communicate detailed analyses on specific usage patterns and suspected attack vectors to guide our efforts. You'll also build scalable analysis workflows and dashboards for automatically identifying suspicious behavior in our games and explore ML solutions. For this you'll be working closely with our existing data science team, and our engineering teams focussed on platform security. Together, you enable our product teams to deliver end-to-end solutions to catch bad actors and keep Niantic's products fun and safe for everyone. We seek creative engineers with excellent technical judgment, strong interpersonal skills, and an eagerness to explore the unknown.

Join the Niantic 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. Our current consumer titles include pioneering global-control game Ingress, record-breaking AR game Pokémon GO, and Harry Potter:Wizards Unite. Our developer platform, Lightship, launches soon.

Niantic is an Equal Opportunity employer. We believe that cultivating a workplace where our people are supported and included is essential to creating great products our community will love. Our mission emphasizes seeking and hiring diverse voices, including those who are traditionally underrepresented in the technology industry, and we consider this to be one of the most important values we hold close.

We're a hard-working, fun, and exciting group who value intellectual curiosity and a passion for problem-solving! We have growing offices located in San Francisco, Sunnyvale, Bellevue, Los Angeles, London, Tokyo, Hamburg, and Zurich.
