Rivian is on a mission to keep the world adventurous forever. This goes for the emissions-free Electric Adventure Vehicles we build, and the curious, courageous souls we seek to attract. Starting from a clean sheet has allowed us to learn from and leverage the past while giving us the freedom to reimagine mobility from the ground up. Our vehicles are designed and engineered to inspire the exploration of our world in new ways through sustainable technology. Forever starts with us. There’s a magic that occurs when people from different worlds, with different lived experiences and perspectives, surround a challenge from all sides. If it were up to us, every person on the planet would be joining forces to mitigate climate change. The carbonization of our atmosphere presents a great threat to humanity, but with some imagination, and a shared commitment to drastically reducing emissions, a better way forward is possible.To get there, we’re putting our adventurous side to work — inventing technology, building products and designing services and experiences that enable and inspire a shift to renewable energy. Since our earliest days, Rivian has been a magnet for optimistic thinkers and doers who will stop at nothing to leave this planet better than we found it. It takes more than great ideas to make a difference. Bringing them to life — the right way — requires relentless curiosity and a whole lot of heart, not to mention difficult decisions, unexpected turns, redrawn plans and gnawed pencils. Every time we greet the unknown with open arms, what once seemed impossible becomes fun. Digital Commerce Rivian’s Digital Commerce team is responsible for the end-to-end digital experiences outside our vehicles across the web, mobile app and in-store. We build customer-centric features, like the vehicle configurator, interactive maps and a world-class commerce platform that will make learning about and purchasing Electric Adventure Vehicles intuitive, seamless and fun. We are seeking adventurous developers to lead the execution of customer-facing programs and projects from conception-to-launch and drive the development of core technologies needed to enable our commerce platform and mobile app.
