Electronic Systems Test Engineer with Labview

Competitive plus benefits

Malmesbury, Wiltshire


Dyson is a high-technology, leading edge manufacturer of a range of products including vacuum cleaners, fans, heaters, hand dryers and lighting systems. At our research and development centre in Malmesbury, we create future technologies and have a pipeline of ideas stretching well into the future. We invest £3 million every week into research and development, and work with more than a dozen leading universities on top secret inventions. For Dyson to grow, we will need to double our research and development footprint and recruit up to 3,000 more engineers!

Market Overview

Home to our global Research, Design and Development centre and all of our Commercial functions, Dyson HQ is tucked away in countryside famous for the railway tunnels and bridges of Isambard Brunel, who revolutionised modern engineering. Our secluded location helps us to protect our ideas and stay independent-minded. Yet nearby are the fashionable cities of Bristol and Bath (where a young James Dyson invented cyclone technology).
The building is the heartbeat of Dyson. Over 1,500 people, including James himself, spend their days strategizing, inventing technology and telling the Dyson story to the world. From 2016, our HQ will begin doubling its footprint with an ambitious new expansion.

Function Overview

When you invent something, the right technology often doesn’t exist to make it work. So we make our own. From advanced systems, components and power supplies to building a digital motor from scratch, Dyson electronics engineers have enabled our ideas to become reality. As our future products rely more on robotics, connectivity, and complex sensing and navigation technologies, our high speed electronics will stand us apart. From designing the hardware to the systems, that make Dyson machines as reliable as they are intelligent, our electronics engineers are central to our most pioneering RDD.
