About Us

Dyson is a global technology company on a mission to improve people’s lives: whether that be by making the air they breathe safe and clean, or connecting them to high performing machines which keep their homes clean.  Our principle is simple: We solve problems others ignore with exciting new technologies which defy convention. 

 

Our culture is unique; dynamic, inventive, technology-obsessed, and decidedly un-corporate. The mindset is geared to constant change and our pace brings constant challenge. It’s not easy or comfortable, but it’s this way of working that drives performance. Dyson suits people with the courage and resilience to find their own way, spotting opportunities where others don’t, and having the self-belief to persevere where others give up. Experiences are more important than experience. And attitude counts as much as aptitude.  

 

The Role 

 

As the APAC Digital Design Lead, you'll be responsible for leading a multi-disciplinary and highly skilled team in APAC and the guardian of our digital platforms. Focusing on both ‘perfect execution’ and ‘perfect performance’, protecting our Dyson reputation and narrative, to ensure that every interaction across each digital touchpoint is ‘perfect’. 

 

Working closely with our Global Experience Design team and the APAC Centre of Excellence (Site Optimisation, Creative, Productive, Media, CRM) you’ll be responsible for the pixel-perfect execution of all Global assets and localised campaigns. Ensuring that implementation across our regional digital channels meets the exacting standards set by our Global identity guidelines. 

 

Alongside brand governance, you’ll oversee the UX testing, UI design, insight analysis and performance optimisation projects across the team. You’ll collaborate with stakeholders across APAC, UX, Project Managers, Creatives, and external production partners to support local briefs adapting global assets or creating new digital assets that will enhance performance and engagement. 

 

You’ll be hands-on, designing and concepting online interfaces optimised to suit the behaviours of our target audiences – whether it’s a product page or a full website to shaping the stories Dyson tells and the way in which we tell them. You’ll look for opportunities to expand our digital output recognizing that it’s not always all about the big innovative changes, but the small optimizations can have a big impact.
