Company: Rivian
Location: Irvine
Posted on: June 8, 2021

Job Description:

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.

We operate development centers in Plymouth, Michigan; Southern California (Irvine, Carson & LA); Silicon Valley (San Jose and Palo Alto); Vancouver, British Columbia; and Surrey, England; as well as a manufacturing facility in Normal, Illinois.

This is what you'll do:

  • Keep the Internal Communications team organized through insightful project management techniques
  • Help determine the appropriate audiences, communication vehicles and cascading of all internal messaging
  • Support the planning and execution of internal events
  • Provide regular status report of communication activities and recommend any additional actions that are required for a success of a project/program
  • Engage your storytelling skills to thread the People/employee story to the broader Rivian narrative
  • Manage editorial calendar and content, balancing input from key internal stakeholders across a range of departments and geographies

This is what you'll need:

  • 5+ years of internal and employee-focused communications experience
  • The capacity to thrive in dynamic environments, while being flexible, collaborative and reliable
  • Experience in project management and event execution, with the ability to drive multiple projects simultaneously
  • Excellent writing and editing skills: you are known for crossing T's and dotting I's
  • You've told stories through a variety of mediums: whether they're in-person events, virtual settings, or in writing
  • Ability to consider the bigger picture and possess the willingness to get into the specifics when needed
  • You are a passionate collaborator and love building cross-functional relationships
  • Super organized: you have checklists for your checklists and can think 10 steps ahead
