Full Time
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.
This position is currently being recruited for the development center in Irvine, CA. In addition we have a modern manufacturing facility in Normal, IL and will begin production of our R1T and R1S in 2021.

·         Have a legendary understanding of polygons, lighting, shaders and textures
·         Be a visionary storyteller with an innate sensitivity for varying context
·         Have a great knowledge of photographic principles and image architecture
·         Be a great communicator and collaborate with a wide spectrum of teams including Design, Brand, CMF, and Marketing
This is what you’ll need:

·         Expert knowledge of Alias/MAYA and/or VRED.
·         Strong interest in Unreal or Unity Experience
