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. 

As a company, we constantly challenge what’s possible, never simply accepting what has always been done. We reframe old problems, seek new solutions and operate comfortably in areas that are unknown. Our backgrounds are diverse, but our team shares a love of the outdoors and a desire to protect it for future generations. 

We operate development centers in Plymouth, Michigan; Southern California (Irvine, Carson & LA); Silicon Valley (San Jose and Palo Alto); Vancouver, British Columbia; and Surrey, England; as well as a manufacturing facility in Normal, Illinois.

Rivian is evolving into a more complex business with a rapidly growing employee population across every part of our business. The People Team supports our business leaders to enable organizational effectiveness, execute our talent initiatives and ensure we have the ‘right’ people in the ‘right’ roles.  Attracting and retaining the ‘right’ people across an increasingly global workforce, requires a compelling value proposition, and with that, progressive and innovative benefits, wellness, and mobility programs.

Are you someone that has designed progressive benefits strategies? Have you executed at scale across global, complex and diverse environments? If yes, then Rivian will provide you with the opportunity to apply all of the skills and experiences you have accumulated while challenging you to do it in an even more dynamic, scaling and diversified environment.  This role requires a leader who will truly embrace a first-principles approach and build a global benefits strategy that augments our value proposition and delivers to our mission and strategy.

  • Epitomize collaboration by partnering with internal communications, engagement, change management and operations teams to leverage the breadth of expertise to surround this challenge

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
