About the company:

Doing something different is never easy. It requires courage, optimism and grit. Core to our mission is building a team of adventurous individuals determined to make a positive impact on the world. This means challenging ourselves constantly. Stretching beyond the bounds of conventional thinking. Reframing old problems. Seeking new solutions. And operating comfortably in a space of uncertainty. While our backgrounds are diverse, our team shares a love of the outdoors and a desire to protect it for future generations. Do you like doing the impossible? We’d love to hear from you.

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. 

Customer Engagement is at the forefront of how we create intuitive, innovative, and beautiful moments that our customers will love.


In this role, you will take ownership of guiding customers seamlessly through their journey with Rivian –from purchasing their vehicles to owning them. As the customer’s account manager, you will provide your customers the support they need, educating them, removing blockers, deepening their ownership experience, and taking on as much of the leg work required. You will be a leader in driving our customer service philosophy of being Human, Helpful, and Going the Extra Mile, and you will be empowered to personalize each owner’s experience in fun and creative ways.


Your day-to-day responsibilities will include tracking and monitoring the progression of customers through the purchasing process; utilizing phone, email, and SMS as your means of communicating; and working with partner teams, including Finance, Insurance, Registration, Trade-In, Delivery, Charging, Service, Warranty, and Roadside Assistance. We’re looking for someone who loves people and is excited to take every opportunity to overdeliver when it comes to delighting and interacting with our Rivian customers, fans, and community.


You will be fully trained to perform your role. This training includes a 5-week onboarding plan alongside your newly hired Guide cohort, where we will assign you an onboarding buddy, and ongoing training as needed and dictated by our evolving needs. Delivering the customer experience we want requires many people and effective teamwork. Our team will support, empower, and enable you along the way.

  • Provide exceptional quality of service during every interaction with our customers paying close attention to sentiment.
  • Build rapport and learn how to support each owner, meeting them where they are in their EV ownership journey.
  • Track and follow up on any tasks that need to be completed on behalf of assigned customers to provide an exceptional purchase and ownership experience.
  • Collaborate with our Vehicle Delivery, Retail, Charging, and Service partner teams.
  • Soak up all the information you can about Rivian to bring the brand to life with our community.
  • Share trends and areas of opportunity to improve the customer experience.
  • Listen and understand the needs of each owner so that you can deliver a tailored brand experience.
  • We are introducing products that challenge what people believe to be possible. This requires us to break down complex ideas into something easy to understand and fun to read.
  • Manage general product support and event inquiries surrounding Vehicle Pre-Orders, Vehicle Configurations, Rivian Shop Orders, Retail Store Support, Demo Drive Scheduling, and additional support and pre-sales scope as needed.
  • Participate in virtual and in-person tours as assigned,
  • Think strategically and interpret analytics and track progress using reporting and dashboards.
