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.

As a Product Specialist, you have a great responsibility to ensure that customers who attend our events walk away feeling intimately cared for and supported. We are seeking to build a team of customer-centric individuals with an uncanny ability to deliver exceptional hospitality. You will humanize the process towards ownership with a can-do attitude and ability to innovate on the fly to meet the customer where they are in their own journey. You will be proactive in finding the best solutions at hand and continue to evolve and refine thinking to ensure we over-deliver on every aspect of our customer’s expectations.

Demonstration drives is the moment in which our customers will experience our vehicle and our brand for the very first time. Your role is to enhance their experience with the subtleties in which we greet, engage, and guide them through their time spent in our space. The demonstration drive program provides our preorder holders a chance to ask questions, experience the product, and discover what is next on their journey. This program will begin with tours launching in the summer for an approximate 4-month duration.

As a Product Specialist, you will take on one of the following roles at each of our events:

  • Support the check-in process by greeting our customers, confirming their appointment, and facilitating their registration process
  • Host welcome meetings with groups of customers thanking them for their attendance, explaining what can be expected for the day, delivering an engaging vehicle walk around and answering preliminary questions
  • Act as a source of knowledge for our customers in our Q&A area to provide more detailed information on our product, service, financing, insurance, charging as well as more details on our brand
  • Most importantly, your role as a product specialist is to connect with our customers on a deeper level, engaging in conversation to better understand who they are as individuals
