    • \n
    • Working knowledge of regulatory and certification requirements
    • \n
    • Familiarity with typical manufacturing materials and processes utilized in closures sealing design – EPDM, TPV, coatings,
      metals, plastics, composite, extrusion, injection molding, stamping, roll-forming, stretch-bending, for example - and

    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. 


    Role Summary

    You will own cradle to grave responsibility for full design and development of weather-strip and sealing systems relevant to closures! This
    includes Hoods, Fenders, Side Doors, Tailgates, and Liftgates!


    Responsibilities

    • Areas of product expertise include dynamic sealing, glass run sealing, glass guidance, appliques, anti-pinch sensors, and any
      other closures relevant experience.
    • Responsible for component release for closures and sealing components throughout program lifecycle, including concept
      design, supplier engagement, BOM management, systems requirements, CAE, prototyping builds, validation testing, and
      production support
    • Support all supplier selection and development with heavy interface to purchasing
    • Develop and manage your part system, subsystem, and component information through the Enovia PLM to Catia V6
      environment to achieve targets for performance, quality, cost, investment, and weight
    • Engage in debate and discussions during all body design reviews as a stakeholder and representative of closures sealing
    • Apply studio designer input, design guidelines and lessons learned in early development to improve the product and
      prevent issues.
    • Make updates to requirements, performance specifications, DVP&Rs, and other processes for continuous improvement.
    • Mentor other less experienced engineers
    • Be a champion of good, fundamental design in the body system and across the vehicle

    Qualifications

    • B.S. or higher in Mechanical Engineering or equivalent
    • 5+ years of experience within the automotive industry (ideally OEM or Tier 1) as a Design Release Engineer or equivalent,
      including at least one full product lifecycle from concept through production
    • Ability to self-direct and adapt quickly to program changes
    • Knowledge of an automotive design and development process, system requirements, and general engineering best
      practices
    • Experience leading complete sealing systems development effort. Understanding of the tradeoffs among design, package,
      function, and customer experience involved with these systems
    • 3D CAD design experience for closures systems or related vehicle components – CATIA V5 and/or V6 experience preferred
      but not required
    • An eagerness to work cross-functionally in a dynamic environment where you are part of a team – specifically this means
      active brainstorming and working on components that are not part of closures sealing as required to support the changing
      needs of an evolving vehicle and work environment
    • A strong understanding of the first-principle physics of a closures system –loads, forces, and overall function of the system
    • Working knowledge of regulatory and certification requirements
    • Familiarity with typical manufacturing materials and processes utilized in closures sealing design – EPDM, TPV, coatings,
      metals, plastics, composite, extrusion, injection molding, stamping, roll-forming, stretch-bending, for example - and
      associated design requirements associated with these materials and processes
    • A system approach to design and development with the desire and curiosity to strive for continuous improvemen
