Embedded Electronics Engineer

Competitive + Bonus + Pension + 27 days hoiday



Dyson offers a unique opportunity for a talented Electronics Engineer in the Motors, Power and Electronic Systems Research Team, within Dyson’s Research, Design and Development (RDD) department; based in Malmesbury, Wiltshire, U.K.

Market Overview

At Dyson we are encouraged to think differently, challenge convention and be unafraid to make mistakes. We’re creative, collaborative, practical and enthusiastic, but most of all we’re hugely passionate about what we do. We are looking for individuals who wish to invent, design and develop leading products for the global market. By working in our world class Research Design and Development department, these individuals have the opportunity to work alongside other leading technical specialists and highly motivated creative people, to create products which fulfil our ambition of being truly different and better than our competitors.

Function Overview

Dyson products strive to be at the leading edge of technology. Through unique strategic partnerships with global top universities and leading businesses, we gain foresight of up and coming technologies. The technical research team aims to exploit this knowledge to design state-of-the-art products allowing us to differentiate our products from the competition and be ahead of the times. Dyson is expanding into several new and exciting product categories and is positioning itself as a technology company, confirmed by the release of the 360 Eye robotic vacuum cleaner and recent investments in Sakti3 solid state battery technology. Successful applicants for this role will be part of the team driving these products and others forward.


Reporting to the Embedded Electronics Technology Leader, you will join a growing team of Embedded Electronics engineers responsible for designing hardware covering a wide range of disciplines.

 Detailed hardware design in both analogue and digital fields will be core to this job role; as will producing software to exercise hardware and produce demonstration rigs to convey ideas to others. A successful applicant will be expected to review relevant papers, patents and meet with companies to keep informed of emerging technology and develop roadmaps.

 The ability to identify technologies that may be used in future Dyson products to give a competitive edge is an important asset for any applicant.

Additional responsibilities include:

• Take technical responsibility for aspects of the embedded electronics content of a project

• Work with the different product teams to gain an in depth product understanding, while using your knowledge of the latest technologies to create innovative electronic systems and solutions

• Develop the concept, prove key technologies and demonstrate designs are robust, cost effective and fit for purpose for a high volume manufacture environment, through detailed laboratory testing, simulation and analysis prior to handover to the development teams.

• Develop simulation tools and algorithms for sensor data processing, modelling and analysis

• Undertake the thermal management design of electronics systems

• Ensure that designs comply with relevant EMC/EMI standards and modify designs where needed. Whilst the Embedded Electronics team is responsible for supporting products at initial design stages; a key focus for any successful applicant will be to seek out and research early stage technology initiatives and look at ways of incorporating these technologies into future and new product opportunities.


Education and experience:

• Minimum BEng/MEng degree in Electronic Engineering or other relevant discipline with a demonstrable level of industrial experience in a relevant industry.

Minimum technical knowledge:

Applicants should have experience in 2 of the following 5 areas:

• Digital hardware design:

o Excellent general knowledge of microprocessors, preferably including ARM Cortex M series and PIC microcontrollers

o Knowledge of serial interfaces such as I2C, SPI, UART, USB

• Analogue hardware design:

o Experience of analogue amplification, conditioning/filter circuitry

o Design of OP-AMP stages such as differential amplifiers, integrators etc

o Experience of using sensors such as MEMS accelerometers/gyros, ultrasonic, temperature, optical sensors (proximity, ambient and colour) and VOC

• Motor hardware and control

o Design of servo and low power motor drive hardware and control systems

o Design of brushless DC motor hardware and control system is desirable

• Power supply hardware o Design of switch mode power supplies (e.g. up to 50W)

o Linear regulator hardware design

• Software

o Experience of C/C++ programming for embedded systems

o Assembly software experience and mixed C and Assembly experience is desirable.

Benefits Overview

In order to increase your chances of being short listed please ensure you submit a supporting statement in addition to your CV clearly addressing how you meet the essential & desirable criteria as outlined above, plus details of your current and required package.
