Description

Our NPI Robotics team create all the concepts for Dyson's robotics platform. You will go from design, prototyping, implementation and testing through to reviews with James and Jake Dyson. You'll embody the technologies developed by the Research team in to full blown products. You'll investigate customer insights and understand what they need. You'll look at what development areas we should focus on and ask what makes a viable product, which can vary in different global locations.

This is a creative team, so you'll need to be a good generalist within robotics in order to have the grounding to come up with new and innovative ideas. You'll need a good mechanical understanding - to look at a robot and understand how it'll work in different environments. You'll come up with novel and exciting concepts and trial those to see what will or won't work.
