Electronics Test Team Lead


Malmesbury - United Kingdom


Following years of investment in robotics research and development, Dyson have built up a world class robotics design capability. Rigorous testing is key to our success. Dyson are looking for an experienced engineer who is passionate about robotics to lead the development of world class robotic testing. Some of our testing involves running our autonomous robots within a lab with state-of-the-art motion tracking systems. Other tests require the development of complex hardware-in-the-loop simulators where we can create novel test scenarios.

You will have a good understanding of how software and hardware work together at different levels in robotic systems. You will need to understand how to test machine vision, navigation, sensors, motion and the emergent behaviours that occur when these systems interact with the physical world and us. You will be able to lead a team developing unique and complex automated test systems for robotics. You will influence robotics test capability and processes across the global business.

If you believe you have the skills and experience to know what makes a good robot, then why not join us at Dyson and help us create a great one?
