About Rivian

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.

You will also be responsible for expanding the media footprint to new channels and to propose ideal media mixes for each campaign. Your deep knowledge and passion for paid media, combined with an understanding of the media landscape from awareness building to demand generation, will be crucial to growing our brand and driving sales. You will collaborate closely with internal marketing stakeholders and third-party agencies, managing all aspects of paid campaign execution from planning to optimization.
