About us

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 growing fast and our ambition is huge - more categories, more locations and more people

About the role

Showcasing the cutting-edge robotic technologies of the future involves bringing together talented people who share common ambitious goals and visions, rethinking problems and framing them properly, utilising the right tools and resources, and doing all of this at the right time. That’s our goal: to build a world class robotics team with a focused vision of robots solving concrete problems in the real world.

We want to create a team that is able to work alongside our roboticists to develop innovative hardware systems that turn theory into practice. It is this culture of ambition and excellence paired with an enjoyable and healthy work-life balance that makes Dyson different! It’s a place to unleash your passion, talent, ideas and show what robots can do for the world.

No robotics experience necessary!

Dyson is building the highest performance robots possible. This means creating primarily custom PCBs, electronics systems, and embedded code designed along with the mechanical and software team. Examples include battery management, sensor integration, custom data bus integration, wiring harness design, power electronics and BLDC motor control, interfaces to external perception sensors, and integration with a user interface via wireless connections.
We seek electronics engineer to join our existing team, designing and assembling electronics for robot prototypes and test rigs. Applicants should feel comfortable designing and assembling one-off boards for rapid prototyping as well as cost-effective boards for production.


  • Design and development of hardware electronic including microcontroller, digital, power supplies, motor control (100W+) and analogue functions.
  • Technology selection, circuit design, modelling and simulation, PCB layout and prototyping.
  • Liaise with mechanical engineers for ensuring a suitable product integration.
  • Generate design specifications, drawings, schematics, BOMs, assembly drawings (Altium).
  • Organise manufacture of prototypes and purchasing of specialised components.
  • Prototype and build boards, bring-up and testing of PCBs.
  • Mechanical assembly of subsystems and systems.
  • Investigate new emerging technologies and how they can be used in our embedded systems.
