Robotics Data Engineer


Data Analysis
United Kingdom - Hullavington Office

About us.

At Dyson, our goal is to build a world-leading robotics team focused on developing advanced domestic robots to go into real homes and help real people. Our multidisciplinary team is already one of the largest home Robotics groups in the world and is growing fast. We offer applicants the opportunity to work on some of the field's most challenging problems alongside some of its best engineers and scientists. 

We’ve been developing robot technology for over 20 years, but this is just the start. In an effort to help build the next generation of advanced domestic robots, we are looking for people to help us investigate robust solutions to diverse real-world problems in machine perception, action, and intelligence. Successful candidates will be working in a supportive environment within a team of experts, based in our state-of-the-art facility in Hullavington, that is constantly aiming to improve itself and the world of robotics. 

About the role.

Robot Learning Data Engineers at Dyson are engineers that have a passion for seeing state-of-the-art robot learning algorithms applied to product concepts.

This role will work closely with research scientists and engineers to collect large-scale robot data and apply it to existing algorithms for new product concepts. Data engineers spend ~70% of their time collecting data, ~10% of their time managing and curating data, and ~20% of their time training state-of-the-art algorithms with that data. 


The role is perfect for people who want to work on state-of-the-art algorithms with a keen interest in product development.  


Key responsibilities include: 

  • Collect large amounts of robot data via teleoperation. 
  • Analyse and report on data collected. 
  • Train machine learning models on the collected data 

About you.

This is the experience we'd love you to hold:

  • Must be able to be on feet for several hours a day for data collection.  
  • Knowledge and experience of applying imitation learning, and robot vision algorithms to real robot manipulation platforms. 
  • Knowledge and experience with modern machine learning frameworks (PyTorch, Tensorflow, etc). 


It would be desirable to have: 

  • Experience in applying deep learning to real world robot platforms. 
  • Experience in large-scale training. 
  • Experience with Ubuntu / Linux. 
  • Good Knowledge of Robotics. 
  • Fair Experience with ROS and Docker. 
  • A passion for advanced domestic robots.
