About Us

At Dyson we are encouraged to think differently, challenge convention and be unafraid to make mistakes. We’re creative, collaborative, practical and enthusiastic. But most of all we’re hugely passionate about what we do.

Dyson offers a unique opportunity for talented individuals to invent, design and develop market leading products for the global market. By working in our world-class research, design and development (RDD) department, these individuals have the opportunity to work alongside leading technical specialists and highly motivated creative people to create products which fulfil our ambition of being truly different and better than our competitors.

About the role

The Electronics Diagnostics Engineer is responsible for the early bring-up and test of new PCBA designs across all of Dyson’s range of consumer appliance products. You will work closely with the Electronics Design & Integration teams, Embedded SW teams and Manufacturing Test teams to support initial bring-up and testing of new PCBAs.
