We Are Rivian
Rivian is building a new kind of car company. Starting from a clean sheet has allowed us to learn
from and leverage what’s been done in the past while giving us the freedom to reimagine
mobility from the ground up. Our vehicles and technology are designed and engineered to
challenge what’s possible and to inspire people to explore the world in new ways.
We believe in the power of adventure. While a vehicle can’t make someone adventurous, it can
nurture that fundamental desire in each of us to go places we’ve never been and do things we’ve
never done — thoughtfully and sustainably. Science and invention depend on our innate curiosity
and desire to explore the unknown.
Our development centers are located in Plymouth, MI, San Jose, CA, Irvine, CA and Surrey,
England. In addition to these four locations, we have a modern manufacturing facility in Normal,
IL and will begin production of our R1T and R1S in 2020.
The Adventure Is Just Beginning
Doing something different is never easy. It requires courage, optimism and grit. Core to
delivering on our vision is building a team of curious individuals, determined to make a positive
impact on the world. This means challenging ourselves, stretching beyond the bounds of
conventional thinking, reframing old problems, seeking new solutions and operating comfortably
in a space of uncertainty.
Our team has a diverse set of backgrounds— but at heart, we are adventurers on a mission to
move the world in a new direction. We’re currently looking for thinkers and doers with a strong
sense of adventure to join us on this journey.
