We're here to even the negotiations playing field

Riva is the first-ever automated job offer negotiations tool. We generate compensation numbers and email scripts for your negotiations process.

How much more should I ask for?

Compensation Numbers

We use information about your current offer and your situation to generate a compensation target for you to ask for. You can use this alongside data from compensation databases to hone in on your perfect target ask.


Generate Personalized Email

We use your target ask alongside information about your situation to generate a personalized email you can send back to the recruiter. Don’t spend hours agonizing over your email. Use ours as a place to start and then make it your own.

"Riva helped me negotiate an offer from a top tech company in the Bay Area. I wasn’t sure how to negotiate the offer, how much to ask for, or how to justify my request. This was my first time negotiating a full-time offer, and I was nervous about asking for too much, but also didn’t want to lowball myself and lose out on compensation. Riva gave me information on what to say, how to justify it, and what communication methods to use for negotiating. Riva helped me negotiate a 20% increase on the initial offer, which is much higher than I would have been able to do on my own! I’m so appreciative towards Riva for helping me gain the confidence I needed to increase my pay."

Negotiating Myths


Companies won't negotiate with new grads.

New graduates can negotiate for larger signing bonuses, salary, and equity. We see it all the time. Don’t miss out just because you’ve recently graduated.


I think it’s a good offer, so I’m just going to accept it.

Yes, the offer may be higher than your current job or what you were expecting. But starting a job being underpaid sets you up for long term career problems.


They say the offer is non-negotiable.

Every offer is negotiable. This is a tactic that recruiters use to get around a negotiation. If you make the ask, the worst that will happen is that they say no.

It's all about you!

We love it when you advocate for yourself. You are badass, awesome, and inspiring. We're excited to watch you take the last step and put your best foot forward - we'll be with you every step of the way. Let's go!

Pre-Offer Common Mistakes
Negotiating starts before the offer? Just when you thought negotiating couldn’t get any worse, eh? The recruiter wants to make sure you’re in the right ballpark for compensation before spending time with the interview.

Frequently Asked Questions

I want to negotiate more than just my compensation

We love that! Our automation currently only supports making the compensation ask. However, you're welcome to modify the email we generate for you to include those other asks. Remember, make all the asks at the same time, don't drip the asks over several emails or calls. We'll be launching scripts to show you how those asks are done soon.

I’m in the interview process, how can I prepare for negotiating?

Negotiating starts during the interview process; you’ll most likely get a question about compensation expectations. See our Pre-Offer Negotiations Resource which will step you through how to handle this question step-by-step.

Who is Riva most effective for?

Riva is most effective for young and mid-career professionals negotiating a new job offer. If you are an executive your negotiations will likely be much more complicated and we can recommend coaching options. Contact us for more information.
