Lead Robotics Software Engineer


Design and Development
Singapore - St James Power Station Headquarters

About us

Software is a key component to our Dyson products and future strategy. Our teams develop software from concept through architecture, design, implementation, testing and support across the full range of Dyson products. We operate as a diverse global team that continues to expand, based across multiple sites in the United Kingdom, Singapore, Malaysia, China, the Philippines and Poland. Dyson software will bring the latest technologies to our consumer products leveraging existing knowledge. We operate around the Scaled Agile Frameworks (SAFe), our teams develop the full stack of software; embedded software on new or existing products, iOS and Android development for the Dyson Link App, cloud services complementing the Dyson Link App, robotics and algorithm development for our intelligent machines, automated test systems and integration of all the tools we use to power out Continuous Integration (CI) pipeline at the heart of our development, cementing Dyson's place as a pioneering global technology enterprise. When you use any Dyson product, you will have experienced the software that has been produced by us – as Dyson technology improves, our software reach has grown, and no Dyson product works without our Software. We coded the solutions that enabled our Environmental Care products to connect and work seamlessly in your connected home – evolving and improving our algorithms and displays to show the air quality.  Our software has brought our cordless cleaning capability to our user’s hands using our displays to show dirt cleaning data in the v15 cordless vacuum. Our advanced algorithms, machine learning, vision systems and robotics has brought our robot vacuums to life. Coupled with our Dyson Link app, boasting over 4 million connected products, we’ve enhanced our owner’s experience of using our technology from every aspect.

About the role

You'll be an experienced robotics software engineer with excellent software coding skills. Working in an agile cross-functional team, you will contribute to the development of complex features to ensure Dyson continues to create innovative products that will delight our customers.

You'll collaborate with architects, software engineers, and specialist engineering to help solve the wide and exciting range of robotics challenges posed by the ever expanding Dyson product portfolio.
You'll have a desire to explore and share ideas and techniques across different technical domains and will ideally have expert knowledge of algorithm development for complex, sophisticated systems including hardware, embedded software, and robotics subsystems with a focus on behavioural software.

  • Responsible for the design and development of the behaviours and features of household robots.

  • Work closely with software engineers to implement and test robotics behaviours to production quality with a focus on the underlying algorithms.

  • Manage the entire life cycle of multiple related complex modules and systems, including feature discussion, algorithmic analysis, documentation, design, coding, testing, maintenance, and result tracking

  • Identify key enabler and risk areas of proposed solutions.

  • Involve in continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) infrastructure/environment setup

  • Good product sense and keen focus on product performance.

  • Act as subject matter expert (SME) in specific domain, disseminating knowledge, guiding and mentor engineers in methodology, best practice and standards

  • Proactively identify technical risks within projects and influence engineering teams in their resolution

  • In-depth participation in feature design discussions will be required

About you

  • A bachelor's degree or higher in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Mathematics, robotics engineering or similar.

  • Experience in one or more of the following domains: Localisation, SLAM, motion trajectory control, image processing, object detection/recognition, task management, manipulation, path planning, automatic control, robotics systems or machine learning.

  • 5+ year of work experience in embedded system application development.

  • Excellent object-oriented programming, including speed and overall quality; specifically, MUST be able to write high performance product quality codes with modern C++.
