Electronic Test Engineer with Labview

£Competitve + 27 Days Holiday + Bonus + Pension

Malmesbury, UK, United Kingdom

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. As the complexity increases, so does the challenge to our systems test capability. We need test engineers who can embrace this challenge and design test systems that are as innovative and exciting as our products are. 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. We test our autonomous robots in a laboratory with state of the art motion tracking systems, and develop complex HIL simulators to create novel test scenarios. This is a highly technical role, working with a broad range of technologies in a fast paced, creative and highly collaborative working environment.

Dyson Overview

Things move quickly at Dyson. In twenty years, what began with one man and one idea has grown into a global technology company, with over 6,000 people and a presence in over 70 countries. From Malmesbury to Malaysia to the US to Australasia and many countries in between, we’ve sold over 80 million machines. And it’s just the start. In 2017 our Malmesbury HQ is doubling its footprint. The US, our biggest market, is doubling their sales scope. And new frontiers are opening up across South East Asia and beyond. More people, more ideas and more space for more invention. The next four years will be our biggest and busiest yet.

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.
