IoT Security Lead

£Competitive plus 27 Days Holiday, Bonus, Pension

Malmesbury, UK


We are looking for a Security Lead, responsible for the delivery of security best practice and architecture into Dyson's connected products, apps and cloud.

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 3,500 people, including James himself, spend their days strategising, inventing technology and telling the Dyson story to the world. In 2017, our HQ doubled its footprint with an ambitious new expansion.

Function Overview

In 2016 we launched our first two connected products and already have a connected user base of hundreds of thousands across twenty countries. By leveraging our culture of design and engineering excellence with an innovative start up mentality we won the 2016 T3 Connected product of the year, and our ambitions for 2018 and beyond are even more exciting. If you thrive on working in a collaborative, stimulating, fast moving environment and relish difficult software engineering challenges, then we want to speak to you!


You will lead a team of security specialists supporting Dyson's IoT Projects. This team is responsible for security of Dyson's IoT program, including the 400,000+ IoT Dyson products in customers’ homes. 

We do agile software development at Dyson, so we embed the security team into our Scrum teams alongside developers, operations and testers. Your team is responsible for security assurance of releases. We want to do security right from the start of the creative design process so the team gets involved in projects at very early stages, through proving out ideas with prototyping, active research and requirements definition.

You will need to work closely with various product design teams (embedded design teams, cloud architects, developers, project & release managers) to input into project non-functional and functional requirements. You will need to maintain positive engagement and stakeholder support for IoT security to ensure it is understood and supported.

But financial benefits are only the start of a Dyson career. Rapid professional growth, leadership development and new opportunities abound, driven by regular reviews and dynamic workshops. And with a vibrant culture, flexible working hours, the latest devices and a relaxed dress code reflecting our engineering spirit, it’s an exciting team environment geared to creativity, innovation and ambition.
