Embedded Software Engineer in Test


Design and Development
United Kingdom - Hullavington Office

About us

At Dyson software is key to the products that we develop. We are rapidly growing our embedded software department and have a range of opportunities, at all levels, for Embedded Software Engineer in Test.

We want to build high performing teams that reflect a broad range of experience and abilities that give opportunity for growth and informal mentoring. From 1 year to several decades of expertise, to those wanting to have hands on leadership of a team of engineers - we have opportunities at each stage of your career at both of our locations in Malmesbury and Hullavington.

If you have used a Dyson product, you will have experienced software that has been produced by us. We developed the user interface for the latest V15 cordless vacuum cleaner and the Corrale hair straightener. We wrote the software running on the Dyson Pure Hot + Cool and the Dyson Lightcycle. We built the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Low Energy solution to make our products part of the Internet of Things.

Dyson is ambitiously evolving and expanding its product lines, which challenges us to develop exciting solutions and engage with new technologies which we can’t reveal just yet.

About the role

Software teams at Dyson are highly collaborative and have strong autonomy. As an embedded software engineer in test, you will be involved with collaborative planning within your team – ensuring the goals your team commit to each sprint are realistic. As you work with your team to deliver those commitments, you will be designing and developing innovative test solutions ensuring all software delivered meets the product requirements and agreed quality standards. You will achieve this by designing and building solutions for both on and off target automated unit and integration tests.

As the subject matter expert for test within the team, you will coach other members of the team so that they are capable of developing tests and tools to ensure that good quality software is delivered by the team.

To succeed in our teams, you will be someone who desires to work collaboratively to create high quality, robust test solutions.

Our teams are committed to continuous improvement, through retrospectives and by engineers engaging in communities of practice that cut across the teams to focus on improving our software engineering practices. There is also regular opportunity to explore and experiment with new ideas during our innovation sprints.
