About us

Dyson is a global technology enterprise. We solve the problems others choose to ignore, with surprising new inventions that defy convention and simply work better. We’re growing fast and our ambition is huge – more categories, more locations and more people.
For the last few years, we have adopted the agile way of working and have grown considerably during this time. As we continue to grow the number of embedded software scrum teams, we want to access scrum masters with proven experience in other environments.

About the role


As a Scrum Master here at Dyson you would have exposure to supporting one or two teams and would be able to contribute to the continual improvement of agile practices within the embedded department. 
We have been developing software at Dyson using agile practices for several years. For the past two years, we have been following SAFe (scaled agile framework). Initially, we sourced Scrum Masters internally. As we grow the number of embedded software scrum teams, we now want to access Scrum Masters with proven experience in other environments.
We require an experienced Scrum Master who will support two scrum teams. One scrum team of embedded software developers already exists, another similar scrum team will be hired over the coming months. The Scrum Master will be a member of the SM Community of Practice and will contribute to the continual improvement of agile practices within the embedded department. The Scrum Master will work with the SAFe Release Train Engineer (RTE) where necessary.
