Lead Integrated Development Engineer


Design and Development
United Kingdom - Malmesbury Office

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.

About the role 

Dyson offers an exciting opportunity for talented individuals for a permanent Lead Integrated Development Engineer - Embedded Software & Control Systems position based in its Research, Design and Development (RDD) Centre in Malmesbury, U.K. You will be part of the dynamic global team working on a number of technologies including the Dyson Digital Motor.

This role is to accelerate our control systems development process. In collaboration with our control systems and embedded software engineers you will guide the design and development of our control prototyping, software and hardware in the loop toolsets and processes. This will enable us to better link system simulations and real-world testing of embedded software and motor/heater drive hardware. The intent is to use rapid control prototyping hardware comprising PC, FPGA and microcontroller elements but the solutions you develop must adapt to fit the needs and timeline goals of the team. As a lead engineer you will be responsible for toolset specification, stakeholder management, planning and delivery. This will involve coordination with other teams and plans and may involve guiding and supporting junior engineers and Dyson Institute students working on your tools.


  • Work to accelerate and integrate control design (normally based in Matlab) and embedded software ( C ) implementation with the aim of a supporting a model based control design process.

  • Participate in (and where required coordinate) control design changes to ensure changing requirements are met and unexpected issues are dealt with using a process combining simulation, virtual test, SW test and hardware system verification.

  • Support robust process in control development by identifying tests (physical and simulation based) and test methods appropriate for this.

  • Demonstrate, promote, mentor and troubleshoot the above processes with other engineers to accelerate development processes.

  • Implement software and hardware tools that support the above processes. Ensure deliverable's compliment and accelerate existing projects. Report progress, blockers and issues concisely to all levels of stakeholder.

About you

  • Be a creative thinker, highly self-motivated and self-reliant with enthusiasm for motors and power systems
