Senior Financial Analyst

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.

 Partner with engineering, manufacturing, and purchasing teams to forecast and manage all investment (tooling, headcount, prototype, etc.) and bill of materials associated with vehicle exteriors

 Consolidate financial data across multiple engineering systems to prepare consolidated monthly reports and perform variance analysis for both internal and external customers
 Perform forecast error tracking and present findings to management
 Prepare monthly accruals and annual financial planning/budgeting
 Perform ad hoc financial analyses
 Support Accounting, Strategic Financial Planning, and occasionally Indirect Procurement as needed
