About us

17 years ago Australians quickly adopted the new cyclonic vacuum technology and that James Dyson invented. It became the number one selling vacuum by volume and value. Now, Dyson is as much known for its high performance vacuums as it is for the Dyson Airblade hand dryer and the Dyson Air Multiplier bladeless fan. Just like the engineers based in the UK and Singapore, the Dyson team in Australia like to tackle problems with gusto and create solutions in all fields. At Dyson we think like engineers and we excite people with our technology, rather than giving them a sales pitch.  We solve people’s problems.  It’s a place where failure is encouraged if it means making something work better. Dyson Australia is growing and we’re looking for more fearless people who want to go against the grain and try a different approach.
