About us

Dyson is a global technology company with a unique philosophy – to solve problems that others ignore, first. It transforms every category it enters with radical and iconic re-inventions that work, perform and look very different. Dyson is rapidly expanding in its new and core categories, and across all its global markets. The next five years are going to be Dyson’s biggest and busiest yet. By 2025, there will be a multitude of new machines, new product portfolios and Dyson’s headcount will have grown.

Dyson Commercial is responsible for taking this amazing technology to market, explaining how our machines are different and their benefits. Within this function, the Global Experience Studio has the unique mission to bring Dyson technology to life, to provide the imagery, films, content, experiences and service that explain our machines, their benefits and the problems they solve for our customers. We create assets and multi-channel journeys that help our customers discover, choose, purchase, learn about and solve issues they may have with our machines.

Data and analytics excellence are delivered by a diverse and collaborative global community across Dyson. With significant recent investments in people and cloud technologies, combined with a broad scope and no shortage of ambition and momentum, data and analytics are recognised throughout the business as critical to all our strategic objectives. We’ve embarked on a transformation journey that will deliver a new operating model, processes and technology, enabling us to meet the challenges created by our growth ambitions, changing market landscape and fierce competition. Specifically, the Future of Direct & Experience (FODE) – Data & Content programme will deliver new Marketing Technology systems and transform our Commercial Operations by:

  • Consolidating our global content storage into a new, state-of-the-art digital asset management platform
