Description

Reporting to the Head of UX, you will be responsible for creating utterly intuitive user experiences, which seamlessly balance ‘product enhancements’ with ‘commercial requirements’.

This is an opportunity to work in an innovative, incredibly fast-paced environment where your work will have a direct impact on the experience people have when engaging with us. We are looking for exceptional candidates with a genuine passion for design, user experience and connected technology.


Dyson Overview

Why put up with vacuum bags that diminish suction? Why labour drying hands with slow, energy-hungry machines? Why should fans use blades or lightbulbs fail so fast? There’s always a better way. And at Dyson, our mission is to find it. Solving old problems with new thinking, to invent machines that work better.

But innovation isn’t easy. Our engineers experiment relentlessly, persevere through failure, and search for answers in unlikely places. And, to put the technology they invent into our owners’ hands, Dyson commercial people do exactly the same. Defying convention. From source, to shop.

Market Overview

Home to our global Research, Design and Development center 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).
Here at Dyson, we have a reputation for innovation, for disrupting the market with products that are revolutionary and shaping great user experiences, working smarter and better in every possible way.

Function Overview

Right now, our focus is on joining the dots, bringing our expertise to the internet of things where we can build whole new connected environments and then explore and evolve the connected products that offer even more benefits. Over the last few years, we’ve established and invested in our Connectivity Research function, dedicated entirely to exploring, testing and refining next generation IOT solutions that will enable Dyson products to work in a connected environment.

It’s a business within a business, where each member of the team enjoys the freedom to bring their vision and expertise to work every day. And you’ll be joining us at an exciting, challenging time as we further grow our IOT and connected product range and launch our new responsive ecommerce site designed to inform and inspire.

You'll be leading UX aspects of digital and customer experience projects, the data analysis and development of customer-journey maps and lead the experience voice for new-business activities and strategic presentations.

You'll be hands on creation of user flows, wireframes & clickable prototypes and take the opportunity to manage and mentor junior UX designers.


Skills

You're currently a talented UX Deisgner who has worked as part of an agile delivery team, conducted usability testing, planned and accurately estimated complex design work, ran workshops and mentoring team members.

It’s not for the faint-hearted but it is for talented designers that thrive on problem solving, teamwork and the need to keep challenging themselves and others.
