About Us 

Dyson is a global technology company.  We transform every category we enter with radical and iconic reinventions that work, perform and look very different.


We’re growing – fast.  Our ambition is huge.  We're about better ideas and better technologies. It's about finding better ways to work in more new markets and bright new categories.


Dyson is different.  Our culture is unique.  It's not easy or comfortable. It's certainly not for everyone.  But if you thrive on challenge and are excited by change – it could be for you.


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.
