Sr. Charging Systems Project Manager

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.

We are looking for a Sr. Charging Systems Project Manager who will ensure internal systems are well integrated to support our changing business needs. This project manager will help coordinate all activities related to integrations across systems and teams supporting charging infrastructure with guidance from the Lead Charging Solutions Architect. This important work will drive efficiency and increase the effectiveness of all charging team members, especially in areas related to sales, financial onboarding, vendor onboarding, construction, customer energy, part management, ordering, and part delivery.

 This is what you’ll do:

  • Support critical project management responsibilities and document business requirements
  • Work with product teams support build, implementation, and application integrations through the use of project management tools such as JIRA
  • Develop detailed business process mapping with team leads under direction of Lead Charging Solution Architect
  • Coordinate a centralized product release roadmap aligning cross functional product teams
  • Advise and coordinate, as needed, testing requirements for user and functional testing
  • Apply critical thinking and problem solving to navigate potentially conflicting team requirements to meet business objectives
  • Works with Lead Charging Solutions Architect on projects related to sales, financial onboarding, vendor onboarding, construction, customer energy, part management, ordering, and part delivery

 This is what you’ll need:

  • 3+ years of technical consulting or similar experience
  • Bachelor’s degree in engineering, math, science, system design, business or equivalent experience
  • Prior experience working with SAP, SalesForce, or similar solutions
  • Experience in structured testing, release, deployment best practices
  • Project management experience (experience with JIRA is a bonus)
  • Demonstrated ability to handle conflict to solve ambiguous, cross-functional problems
  • Strong interpersonal skills, resiliency, and ability to lead with data and action, not ego

This is where you’ll work:
