About us

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.

The Floorcare Electronics System Integration team, based in Malmesbury, England, is responsible for developing and integrating cutting-edge electronic hardware for new and pioneering Dyson Floorcare products. We solve the problems others choose to ignore, developing disruptive technologies that require increasingly complex electronic sensors and actuators to deliver Dyson’s rapidly expanding global product portfolio.

About the role

The role will require a highly motivated, creative, methodical and flexible person, ready to take on challenges with a pragmatic approach. You will work in multi-disciplinary global project teams to architect and develop integrated electronic sensor and actuator solutions for new and pioneering consumer appliance products within Dyson’s Floorcare category. You will gain invaluable experience working with Dyson’s Research and New Product Innovation teams to investigate and develop novel ideas. You will also provide supervision and mentoring to less experienced Engineers in the team.


  • Design, model and simulate complex electronics solutions that include sensors, actuators, signal conditioning circuits and digital signal processing.

  • Lead the integration of the solutions at the system and product levels.

  • Perform and participate in design reviews, technical risk analyses, troubleshooting and investigations to proactively solve complex engineering problems.

  • Develop test methodology, and conduct and drive electronics design verification and product validation.

  • Produce and peer-review detailed engineering materials including design schematics, PCB layouts, tolerance analyses, design notes, FMEA, failure analysis reports and technical review documents.
