Rivian has yet to deliver a vehicle in Canada, but the automaker is laying the groundwork to build out its service network north of the border starting in British Columbia.
According to company spokesperson Laura Weston, Rivian has started its recruitment efforts for its first Service Center in Vancouver.
In reviewing Rivian’s careers page, there is currently one service job listed in Vancouver for a Manager, Field Service. The job description says the successful candidate will “lead and manage all local operations on the ground.”
In a sign that this position is required to be filled before moving on to other service related positions, the description also says the manager will “build a strong customer-centric team of Mobile/Service Technicians, Service Advisors, and Parts Advisors.”
When speaking with Automotive News Canada, Weston said the service centers will provide more than just vehicle service as they “will form part of our delivery experience as well as hosting customer events.”
Despite promising to begin deliveries in Canada last year, it might still be a while until they actually begin north of the border.
A recent Form 10-K filing published last month indicated the automaker hopes to apply for certification from Transport Canada to sell their vehicles by September 2022.
