Dyson is growing. Fast. More products. New categories. Better experiences.
part of the newly formed Connected function, the Connected Experience Design team is responsible for designing the App journeys that maximise our technology and provide the care and support that our owners deserve. Creating the best possible experiences at every point in the journey. Delivering the same attention to detail to each interaction as we do in the engineering of our machines. Our focus is on evolving our suite of Dyson Apps to become broader owner channels, using our expertise and driving innovation, all to design the seamless digital experiences that set us apart from the competition.
About The Role
We’re looking for an Experience Design Lead (Connected) with a background in user experience (UX) and user interface (UI) design. Leading design projects across our Dyson Link Apps, you’ll collaborate with other experience designers, project managers, product owners, engineers and developers to create new experiences and enhancements that help us evolve our Apps to become broader owner channels in their own right.
As well as working closely with your Experience Design colleagues, you’ll lead collaboration with other teams within Commercial and IT, and also directly with the engineering and development teams too. You’ll be joining a team of smart, expressive people and given the encouragement, trust and freedom to do the job we love. It’s a fast-paced way of working that will inspire you do the best and most fulfilling work of your career. You’ll get to tackle far-reaching problems with satisfying outcomes and quick turnarounds. Constantly challenging your own thinking to get to the best solution, using insight to drive a better experience.
You will work closely with UX Researchers to take research and insight and carry concepts which solve real user problems from strategy into production. You’ll have a great team around you, but you’ll ensure we are delivering the right thing in the right way. You’ll know the best way to tackle complex challenges and understand the various components that make up the design and development process. Bringing this knowledge to bear by looking for opportunities to expand our digital output recognizing that it’s not always all about making innovative changes - small optimisations can also have a big impact.

Constantly push the boundaries of what our platforms can do, balancing both user and business needs to create experiences that solve real problems.
Helping to lead the development our digital design system, evangelising its use across the business (particularly within the our apps) and encouraging the team to actively contribute to its growth and development. Demanding consistency across multiple touchpoints and channels, ensuring we design and build using atomic principles.
Review work of your team members to ensure alignment with Dyson’s visual identity standards and that every stage of a user journey delivers the right message at the right time.
