Embedded Connectivity Engineer
£Competitive plus 27 Days Holiday, Bonus, Pension
You will use your expertise and passion for technology to work with a multi-disciplinary team of engineers, researching and developing the next generation of IoT solutions. You'll enjoy bouncing ideas off different people and teams, as well as rapid prototyping and electronics.
In March 2018 Dyson launched the Dyson Pure Cool, the second generation of connected purifiers which joined the existing 360 Eye robot vacuum cleaner and its companion eco-system, Dyson Link. Dyson Link is our IoT solution to enable Dyson products to work in a connected environment. It includes the key components required to create a connected product, from mobile apps, web/CRM integrations and cloud services (provisioning, asset management, message routing, product/app analytics, persistence and scaling). Dyson Link 4.0 was released in February 2018 and was the first version to be fully designed and implemented within Dyson by the Connectivity team.
The Connectivity Architecture Team is responsible for ensuring the next generation of connected products and technologies are properly explored, tested and refined in readiness to transition to the team responsible for producing our IoT solutions. This includes ensuring we investigate and utilise the right technologies, techniques, services and security. Core to this is exploring the proposition and technology by developing proof of concept integrations and systems.
You will be working in a global multi-disciplinary team, including mobile and cloud Developers, App and product UX/UI designers and electronics and mechanical engineers.
Collaborating with experts from different areas of RDD (Research, Design & Development) will be a large part of this role, as you work with designers and software developers to deliver rapid prototypes, designing how connectivity is woven deeply into our products. You must be independent and methodical with excellent problem solving skills.
You'll be comfortable with and enjoy rapid prototyping of electronic hardware, investigating and evaluating new and emerging technologies, protocols and digital platforms. You should be able to produce clear and concise reports and presentations communicating your research and demonstrating your solutions.
