Description and Requirements

  • We’re looking for a number of technical leads to join our Digital technical team, working at the heart of our digital services – e-commerce, internet of things, and plenty more exciting (and secret!) things besides
  • The role itself will involve designing and delivering technical solutions to support Dyson’s big e-commerce ambitions. Our website platforms operate in dozens of countries and languages, with millions of visitors.

Market Overview:

We all know that Dyson thrives on change. We don’t like to stand still. It’s why we’re expanding more than ever before, and the new Bristol office is a key part of this expansion. At One Cathedral Square, we’ve created a flexible work space where we can build the foundations of a truly global team. 

Bristol is a recognised software and innovation hub and the Owner Experience team will benefit from the space and location - practically and from a career development angle. We can access a great talent pool to help us grow, whilst improving collaboration with the Connected software team. 

We’re a tight-knit function with a vast array of talent, skills and expertise. This is an opportunity to share ideas, collaborate and build world-class technology to support our owners throughout their research, purchase and support journeys

Function Overview:

Dyson’s Global IT applications service has end to end accountability for the design, delivery and support of all business applications enabling Dysons global commercial, operational and enterprise business process. Forming a large proportion of the IT Function, the team are arranged into investment areas including Owner Experience & Retail, Supply Chain, Manufacturing, Finance & compliance and People and collaboration.


We use a number of different tech stacks – our shiny new e-commerce platform is based on Java (AEM, Hybris, and micro-services); our legacy e-commerce platform is based on .NET (Sitecore). We’ve also got some Node going on, we use a range of front-end frameworks, and all of our platforms are hosted in the cloud via AWS. 

The breadth and scale at which we operate means lots of interesting problems to solve – and working with other technical leads, it’ll be up to you to make sure the right technical solutions are designed and implemented.

You’ll be working in a cross-functional team – with a product owner, business analysts, and QA – ensuring that the work fed into the development scrum teams is of the right technical quality.

You won’t be hands-on – but your previous experience means you’re at home talking to development teams as much as you are talking to the business about their requirements.


If you join us, you’ll be joining a team of friendly, smart people across development, quality, infrastructure and support. 

We’re agile - but not in a religious way. Our greenfield projects have fully embraced continuous integration and delivery – but there’s plenty still to do! 

We don’t have a big list of skills and technologies you ‘must’ have in order to speak to us, but the kind of people we’re interested in sound something like this:

  • You can demonstrate extensive, professional experience with one or more programming languages, preferably Java
  • You pick up new technologies quickly, and you can give us plenty of examples
  • You’re familiar with agile and other ways of delivering software
  • You can talk to non-techies without making them scared
  • You love solving problems, and won’t give up until you’ve figured out how something works
  • You’re passionate about improving the way software is delivered
  • You can talk to us at length about the cloud and what it can offer
  • You’ve got some experience documenting / specifying the behaviour of your software - Software estimation is hard, but you can talk to us confidently about how you approach it
  • We’re especially interested in people who have: - Line management / mentoring experience - Deep domain knowledge of Java - AEM or Hybris experience - Knowledge of Spring - Operational infrastructure experience

Benefits Overview:

  • 27 days holiday plus eight statutory bank holidays
  • Pension scheme
  • Performance related bonus
  • Life assurance
  • Discount on Dyson machines
