About us

Dyson began 30 years ago with James Dyson and a handful of engineers questioning everyday products, thinking differently and making them better. We are now the world's number one vacuum cleaner manufacturer in the UK, US, Japan, Europe and Australasia.

We've even branched out to improving commercial technology that frustrates us.  The Dyson Airblade hand dryer dries hands in ten seconds, it’s also the most hygienic and energy efficient hand dryer available. And more recently a fan, Air Multiplier, with no blades or grille.

There are over 4000 in the world and we’re all inventive and hugely passionate about what we do. At our Development Centre in Johor Bahru, Malaysia & Singapore there are almost 1600 of us, a mixture of engineers and support staff, we are Dyson people that are encouraged to think differently, challenge convention and be unafraid to make mistakes. Our teams there will rise to more than 2000 over the next 2 years.

About the role

You'll be an experienced real-time embedded system engineer with excellent firmware coding knowledge. Working in an agile cross-functional team, you will be a key member of the robotics platform team and contribute to the development of sensors integration, system kernel and board bring up, and providing unified hardware abstraction layer to enable the development of more complex behaviour features in the upper application layer in our robotic products.

You desire to create high quality, robust code to solve diverse real-world problems. You must be fluent in both C and C++ 11 and be comfortable in the whole product life cycle, including design, implementation, deployment, testing and debugging of firmware and application code.

You'll collaborate with architects, software, firmware and hardware engineers, manufacturing test engineers, and specialist engineering to help solve the wide and exciting range of robotics challenges posed by the ever expanding Dyson product portfolio.

  • Responsible for the design and development of the firmware and platform of household robots for behaviours development and facilitate mass production.
  • Manage the entire life cycle of multiple related complex modules and systems, including hardware abstraction layer discussion, manufacturing test/verification methodology, documentation, design, coding, testing, maintenance, and result tracking
  • Good product sense and keen focus on product performance.
