- Netherlands - Amsterdam 2 Office
At Dyson, we believe everything could be better. Fuelled by frustration with things that don’t work correctly and a relentless obsession with making them work better, we’ve spent the last 27 years pioneering inventions and continually improving. We’re growing fast. And our ambition is enormous. But it’s not simply about more people and more profit. Dyson is all about pioneering ideas and new technologies. It’s about inventing the future. Our philosophy remains the same as it was 27 years ago when James Dyson invented the first cyclonic vacuum cleaner. We remain family-owned. We don’t bow to outside shareholders or report to the stock exchange. Instead, we plot our path, unshackled from conventional thinking. At Dyson, we strive to find pioneering ways to solve everyday problems.
