Sr. Financial Analyst, Business Intelligence

Irvine, CA /
Accounting and Finance – Finance /
Full Time
Have you ever wanted to work for a company that will change the world? At Rivian, you’ll have that opportunity. For the last century, the automobile has dominated the way we move. No other mode of transport has offered the same level of flexibility in routes, departure times, or configurations. But owning a vehicle is not problem free. It depreciates in value, it's
massively underutilized, and--between cleaning, maintenance, insurance, and fueling--it takes a lot of effort to keep it on the road. Beyond all this hassle, the automotive system has contributed to many of the planet's biggest challenges, including air quality, climate change, congestion, and energy dependence. There is a better solution. This requires us to not only redesign the vehicle, but also the ecosystem around it. Backed by strong investors and driven by a team of passionate innovators, Rivian is creating solutions that redefine traditional automotive economics and remove the pain points of conventional ownership.

This is what you’ll do: 
·        Join the fastest growing Finance team in the automotive industry to drive efficiency and effectiveness across every aspect of corporate finance.

·        Produce deliverables for vehicle product development gateway meetings 
·        Translate business case data and assumptions into a company-wide forecasting tool in order to provide visibility into future consolidated financial statements
