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.

At Rivian, we’re reimagining what mobility can be. Beyond redesigning the automobile, we’re rethinking the entire ecosystem.

From excitement to sustainability, utility to comfort, we’re working to deliver joyful mobility experiences without the pain points of today.

As we develop a fully integrated experience in our R1 and future vehicle lines, we need engineers to help redefine the next generation of features that build upon and integrate into our in-vehicle navigation and mapping systems.

This role will be focused on building engines that help our customers plan adventures and explore the world, taking their vehicles to places beyond where they thought possible.

Our diverse team shares an innate curiosity for the world, a willingness to see things differently, and a passion for getting things done.

We never stand still in our pursuit of progress, and we’re looking for the best and brightest talent to accelerate our vision toward future mobility.
