Senior RF Systems Engineer

£Competitive + 27 Days Holiday + Bonus + Pension

Malmesbury, UK


An exciting opportunity to be a part of the Wireless Hardware Team within the Electronics Group where you will be involved with providing the connectivity hardware solutions integrated across all of Dyson’s product categories . As a Senior antenna and RF Engineer your role will involve specification, design, and test of antennas and RF circuits for new products often under challenging mechanical and space constraints. While primarily focussed on data connectivity in the 2.4 – 5GHz range, you may also be challenged with antenna and circuit design developments across other frequency bands and protocols.

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. Nearly 2,000 people, including James himself, spend their days strategizing, inventing technology and telling the Dyson story to the world. In 2017, our HQ will double its footprint with an ambitious new expansion.

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.


As part of the Electronics Wireless Hardware Design team you will work in close cooperation with the Connectivity, Apps and Hardware Design teams to provide end-to-end connected solutions for Dyson products, from early development through to market delivery. You may also work with Dyson’s Research and New Product Innovation teams to develop ideas involving novel radio frequency applications.

The role requires a highly motivated, creative, methodical and flexible person, ready to take on new design challenges with a pragmatic approach.


  • Design, test and validation of Antennas and RF circuits in the 2.4 – 5GHz range targeted for connected consumer and commercial products.
  • Research into new technologies, proposing novel solutions to new & existing design problems.
  • Testing wireless hardware solution to ensure regulatory compliance.
  • Collaborating with engineering design teams in the UK and South East Asia on new product developments.
  • Take ownership of assigned tasks and ensure they are completed according to the appropriate process.
  • Proactive adoption of good quality engineering practices within the Dyson framework.


As a Senior engineer you will be an experienced RF designer with practical and commercial experience of antenna design for low-power RF communications. You will be capable of simulating, realising and testing antenna solutions for multiple consumer products and also proficient with RF circuit design and testing the complete solution against regulatory specifications using standard RF test equipment. You will be self-starting, self-powered and capable of working unsupervised to generate high quality design solutions. Preferably you will have experience of the whole product development lifecycle, from initial concept generation through to mass production and beyond, and have experience with design of RF systems for data connectivity.


  • Degree qualified in a relevant electronics discipline.
  • Experience of Antenna and RF design through multiple product development cycles.
  • Knowledge and experience of regulatory certification related to RF at the PCBA and product levels.
  • Experience with 3D simulation tools for antenna modelling plus linear RF simulation tools for PCB validation.
  • Proficiency in at least one of the major schematic capture and layout packages.

Benefits Overview

Dyson monitors the market to ensure competitive salaries and pension contributions. Beyond that, you’ll also enjoy a management bonus, generous leave, life insurance, income protection, and private medical and dental care. But financial benefits are only the start of a Dyson career. Leadership support and new opportunities abound, driven by regular dialogue and international training. 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.
