About Us

The Dyson software team are responsible for all aspects of the product development lifecycle. Our teams support Research & NPI with bringing their new ideas to like as well as the delivery of all the Embedded software inside the products, the Dyson Link Mobile Apps (iOS, Android & WeChat) as well as the Cloud systems which support our analytics, machine learning and data science teams.

Dyson is moving into new product categories and we are looking to build out a new team to support our ambitions. This team will look at building products based using the Android platform. Over time the team will grow further in the UK, and Singapore. We all come from a variety of backgrounds and experience levels. We believe that teams composed of people from diverse backgrounds are more successful and innovative.

Our teams have the autonomy to manage their own work using Scrum or Kanban frameworks, each honing their ways of working through regular retrospectives and knowledge sharing. We all share a commitment to creating high-quality code, and engineers choose to follow practices such as pair programming, mobbing, and test-driven development. We also regularly share our knowledge and interests peer-to-peer through ‘community meetings’, which have led to the adoption of new technologies and improved cross-team collaboration. 

We often need to interact with people from different parts of the business, such as mobile app development, cloud development as well as product management. We plan in 5-sprint ‘increments’, based on the best bits of the Scaled Agile Framework. This gives us more visibility of upcoming work while remaining responsive and allows us to collaborate effectively with other teams within our 15,000-person organisation. Our programs also work with some exciting external partners in USA & Asia.

Mutual trust and respect between team members is important to build a supportive environment where people can do their best work.
