About us

There was a time in our history when all people knew Dyson for was vacuums. But what began with one man and one idea inside a coach house in Wiltshire, has since transformed into an 8,000-strong global technology company spanning multiple product categories and more than 70 countries around the world.

But the transformation of Dyson is far from over. Our technology pipeline stretches 25 years into the future, and will see more new product categories emerge - four by 2020 alone.

As our ambitions increase we will advance ever further into the worlds of connectivity, sensor technology, machine learning and AI, as well as deepen our work on motors, batteries and hardware. It’s vital that we have the best spaces and brightest minds all around the globe.

About the role

The global expansion of the Dyson business will largely be driven by continued growth in China. It will be key for our RDD and Operations function to evolve with this ambition and build a broader global presence and intelligence in China.

We are initially focused on core areas that we know will strengthen our product launches and give valuable insight into Chinese culture and how our early stage development of technology can be influenced. These core areas are; mobile apps, product trials, research, quality, reliability, technology scouting & procurement. Dyson Link is our ambitious step into IoT solution. By using deep learning and natural language intelligence, we aim the Dyson products to provide a seamless smart home experience.

As a Senior Software Test Engineer, you’ll be responsible for ensuring the SW quality of web application & cloud services for a robust digital experience for our CN users. The work will be challenging, varied, and will help bring Dyson connected products into the evolving world of IoT.
