Description

The Digital IT team look after all of Dyson’s websites, from Australia to the UK. We are a source of expert knowledge for the rest of the business, and we regularly deploy exciting changes to the websites, help deliver large-scale projects, and use our skills to solve problems. Our Production Manager is responsible for managing our resource pool, release cycle and engagement with teams across the business, and for providing clear, accurate and timely information on capacity, availability and utilisation. The Producer will work alongside the Production Manager to provide support for the day-to-day interactions between the team and the business, and within the team.

Market Overview

Tucked away in a quiet corner of Wiltshire, but only 15 minutes from the M4 and well connected by rail, our Malmesbury HQ is home to more than 4,000 people in a growing campus that houses our IT, Finance, Group Commercial, RDD and GB & Ireland Market teams. With 3 cafes, a gym and sports facility and a selection of iconic engineering legends including our Harrier and Lightning jets, it’s an inspirational place to work and the Digital team is based in the most recently built, agile workspace.

Function Overview

We’re implementing a completely new e-commerce and content platform to transform the way we explain our technology, with completely new engaging, interactive visual assets and build a purchase journey that outperforms global leaders like Apple and B&O. It’s a cornerstone of our global drive to more direct sales and a closer relationship with our customers.

Accountabilities

You’ll be working within the Digital IT team, alongside our developers, testers and UX analysts, as well as amongst the wider business. We support the Group commercial functions and the GB & Ireland market team here in Malmesbury, as well as our other global market teams, so you’ll need to bring strong relationship building skills to help you be the glue that keeps us working effectively together. You’ll also play a key role in liaising with our third-party suppliers, ensuring they have everything they need to deliver great work in a timely and cost-effective way.

We work directly with other IT teams on larger projects and we need to be able to provide clear, accurate visibility of our team capacity, current utilisation and availability to take on more tasks, and you will play a big part in maintaining and communicating that information. We’ll also ask you to help maintain our development backlog, making sure it is prioritised, scenarios are written and tasks are ready for development, working with creative, content and data teams to ensure everything the developers need is in place before starting.

Skills

Experience of working in a Scrum environment would be an advantage but not essential. The essential part is a love of all things Digital and a get stuff done attitude. You might have come from a Digital Agency background or client-side, but either way you’ll be comfortable working in a fast-paced, changeable environment with a constant stream of new ideas from a demanding customer base.

Benefits Overview

Dyson monitors the market to ensure competitive salaries and pension contributions. Beyond that, you’ll also enjoy a profit-related bonus, generous leave and life insurance. But financial benefits are only the start of a Dyson career. Rapid professional growth, leadership development and new opportunities abound, driven by regular reviews and dynamic workshops. 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.
