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 driven by progress and thrive on the challenge of relentless improvement. We’re growing fast and our ambition is huge - more categories, more locations and more people.

Within Dyson research, we are pioneering ground breaking technology, enabling products that solve the problems that others ignore. The Heater technology research team is a mixed skill group of material scientists, mechanical engineers and thermodynamics experts responsible for early stage development of the next generation heating and cooling technologies for future Dyson products.

About the role 

The Machine Learning team, responsible for delivering tangibly intelligent products across all categories at Dyson, is looking for a Computer Vision Engineer to join the UK team.
