Lead Software Developer - iOS


Design and Development
United Kingdom - Bristol Office

About Us 

We are a diverse and dynamic team consisting of highly skilled engineers and data scientists specializing in App, Embedded, Cloud, and Data technologies. We partner with teams across Dyson to rapidly refine early product concepts and ideas, by developing working prototypes that de-risk tech and help production teams understand what is required so they can focus on delivering.   

We have a culture of trust and respect; we believe the teams themselves are the best people to decide how they deliver work, and that within the teams everyone’s contribution is vital. We regularly share our knowledge and interests through community meetings, which regularly lead to the adoption of new technologies, methods, and cross-team collaboration.   

We are a growing group, currently split into two interdisciplinary scrum teams. Team members are from diverse educational backgrounds and experience levels. 

About the role

We’re after someone who deeply understands iOS and is passionate and proactive about building their broader technical skillset and influencing the technical direction of the team. 

In NST, you are often given responsibility on projects, leading on technical and design approaches as well as contributing to our future technology roadmap. 


You must be comfortable working with a variety of people — be it engineers in other disciplines on how to build a prototype, designers on how to design something amazing, or commercial teams on the value of the latest App innovation.
