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. 

As a UX Prototype Developer, you will plan, create, develop, and test various fidelity level prototypes that contribute to the overall user experience of Rivian’s infotainment solution. Your stakeholders will be comprised of various teams, including Research, UX, UI, Infotainment, Electrical, and the Executive C-suite members. These physical and digital prototypes represent the core deliverables of the User Experience team and will include interactive prototypes which may include desktop simulators, software/hardware developmental platforms, driving simulators, static Bucks, etc. You will be working with prototyping technologies which include Protopie Connect, Arduino, Automotive Hardware, etc. You will bring ideas to life by utilizing API’s, SDK’s and compelling, high and low-fidelity designs which showcase the User Experience and User Interface functionality of our Rivian infotainment products (or other digital or physical products). You will invent new and compelling systems which help to force the gap between the research teams and their test subjects.
