Senior Test Engineer Connectivity

Competitve

Malmesbury, UK

Description

Technology is at the heart of Dyson and we develop world class electronics to maintain the world beating performance and reliability of our products. Our team tests the full range of Dyson products including lighting, environmental control and robotics, and we develop new ways to test the secret new ideas for future ones. As the complexity increases, so does the challenge to our systems test capability. One such challenge is how we test our increasingly connected products. We need connectivity test engineers who can embrace this challenge and design test systems which ensure our customers have the most reliable connected user experience possible. This is an opportunity to engage in a technical area which is growing rapidly at Dyson. It is therefore a challenging and influential role, working with a broad range of technologies in a fast paced, creative and highly collaborative working environment.      


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.
