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. 

Our mission at Rivian is to Keep the World Adventurous Forever, and our mission as the People Team is to Keep Rivian Adventurous Forever for our incredible employees. Adventure is in the eye of the beholder, and we want to help employees find memorable, meaningful and fulfilling experiences wherever they can, but our Compass guide tells us that we must start with Forever…

Today we’re operating off hundreds of millions of years of accumulated plant and animal- based carbon, and we’ve exhausted approximately half of this stored energy in the last century alone. If the planet is to continue to sustain life and enchant future generations, we have to change.

At this moment, extraordinary steps must be taken to rapidly stop the carbonization of our atmosphere. This requires individuals and entire industries to come together in ways we never have before to transition the world toward renewable energy. This is where Rivian’s  potential lies — in creating solutions that both shift consumer mindsets and inspire other companies to fundamentally change the way they operate. As staggering as this may sound, and as complex as our objective is, we already have everything we need to build the kind of future our kids and our kids’ kids deserve.

It starts with harnessing the very thing every human being is born with: an adventurous spirit. There’s a reason we’re hardwired with curiosity and a capacity to invent better ways of doing things. The part of us that seeks to explore the world is the secret to making sure it remains a world worth exploring. For everyone. Forever.

We are not here to orchestrate “employee experiences.” We are here to help cultivate and nurture an environment where our employees can bring their best selves to work, harness their adventurous spirit and create their own Rivian experience. We have big dreams, and we need everyone being guided by Compass...the behaviors that guide us are Come Together, Ask Why, Stay Open, Zoom Out, and Over Deliver.

This is why the person in this role cannot just understand and appreciate our values and our culture, they must embody our values and embrace our culture. Anything less won’t get us to Forever.
