Description and Requirements

Dyson has opportunities for Electronics Hardware Engineers to join the Powertrain group within in its Electric Vehicle Engineering Team based at its Hullavington HQ.

Market Overview:

Hullavington is tucked away in countryside famous for the landmarks of Isambard Brunel, who revolutionised modern engineering. Our secluded rural location helps us to protect our ideas and stay independently–minded.

Function Overview:

We’ve begun work on a battery electric vehicle – that’s no secret. It has remained our ambition to solve the worldwide problem of air pollution for nearly 30 years. Now that we have the ability to bring all our technologies together into a single product, we’re able to solve this problem at the source. For now, it’s all about finding the right people to make it all happen for 2020.


The VCU Embedded Hardware Engineer will be involved in every stage including, feasibility, architecture design, system design, testing, validation and preparation for serial production.
