Description and Requirements

  • An exciting opportunity to be a part of the Sensors Team within the Electronics Group, involved in the implementation of new display technologies in consumer appliances. 
  • The sensors team work at all stages of the product life cycle from inventing and evaluating new technologies through to the implementation of the final product. 
  • The candidate will be working with engineers and scientists on multiple projects with opportunity to gain experience in all aspects of product development. 

Market Overview:

Dyson HQ is home to over 3,500 people who work across a medley of engineering and commercial functions. The award-winning campus has three cafes, a sports centre and a number of engineering icons including our Harrier and Lightning jets – one of which hangs from the ceiling of our café. Based in Malmesbury, the campus is within easy reach of both the Cotswolds and cities like Bath and Bristol along the M4 corridor.

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. 


  • This role requires the ability to design, build and test displays for consumer appliances. The candidate will use their broad knowledge of Hardware and Software to design and build prototypes, going on to test these and then support the Electronics Group to build their solutions into the product.
  • Be challenged to solve complex problems in novel ways
  • Quantitatively compare different display products and make recommendations
  • Quickly develop display prototypes for demonstration in product
  • Design schematics and make layout recommendations for interfacing
  • Write drivers for displays in embedded C
  • Mentor and support other engineers
  • Present your designs to peers and senior management for review


  • A good degree in a relevant discipline (e.g. Electronics Engineering, Physics)
  • A broad understanding of display technologies and the market
  • Experience measuring important display parameters
  •  Experience interfacing to displays in hardware and software
  •  Excellent analogue and digital electronics fundamentals
  • Able to use a range of hardware design packages ideally including Mentor and Altium
  • Strong embedded firmware skills in C

Benefits Overview:

  • 27 days holiday plus eight statutory bank holidays
  • Pension scheme
  • Performance related bonus
  • Life assurance
  • Sport centre
  • Free on-site parking
  • Subsidized café and restaurants
  • Discounts on Dyson machines
