$ Competitive Base + Super + Bonus

Alexandria, Sydney


Globally, Dyson has put a strong focus on data acquisition and has created a Data Lake, a central repository for our data. In order to enable meaningful analysis of the data, as the Data Analyst you will play a key role in cleansing and maintaining the data. Reporting to the Analytics Manager, you will also have the opportunity to design hypotheses and use various analytical methods to test them, helping derive meaningful insights that enable business decisions.

Market Overview

Since 1996 Australians have rapidly adopted the new cyclonic vacuum technology that James Dyson invented. It became the number one selling vacuum by volume and value. Now, Dyson is as much known for its high performance vacuums as it is for the Dyson Airblade hand dryer, the Dyson Air Multiplier bladeless fans and Purifiers, Jake Dyson Lights and the Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer. Just like the engineers based in the UK and Singapore, the Dyson team in Australia tackle problems with gusto and create solutions in all fields. At Dyson we think like engineers and we excite people with our technology, rather than giving them a sales pitch. We solve people’s problems. It’s a place where failure is encouraged if it means making something work better. Dyson Australia is growing rapidly and we’re looking for more fearless people who want to go against the grain and try a different approach.

Function Overview
