Description and Requirements

Under the direction of the Head of IT (China) the role will require the successful candidate to rotate through the China IT team to experience, fully participate, and support IT team

Market Overview:

Company description Dyson is a global technology company with a unique philosophy, led by James Dyson. It transforms every category it enters with radical and iconic re-inventions that work, perform and look very different. Driven by frustration, James invented the first bagless vacuum cleaner, but being first wasn’t easy. His competitors were giants and didn’t let him past without a fight. It took 5,127 prototypes and 15 years of perseverance before James finally launched the Dyson DC01. Within 18 months it became the best-selling cleaner in the UK. Today, Dyson marries innovative technology, researched in its own high technology and secret laboratories, with leading-edge design to produce products that work better. The process from initial idea to finished Dyson machine encompasses multiple RDD locations in the UK and South East Asia. Thousands of engineers instead of one man. Acres of engineering laboratories instead of a backyard coach house. And at a speed incomparable to Dyson’s origin. Dyson files hundreds of patents per year, invests millions in research at leading universities around the world, and has a pipeline of technology stretching 25 years into the future. But it remains family owned, plotting its own path, not bowing to shareholders or reporting to the stock exchange. All this means more investment in risky, exciting, varied and surprising products for the future. The mission remains the same; to solve problems that others ignore with exciting new ideas that turn convention on its head. To lead the way, transforming every category entered with radical and iconic re-inventions of everyday devices, setting the benchmark for others to follow.
