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 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. Over 2,500 people, including James himself, spend their days strategizing, inventing technology and telling the Dyson story to the world.

Function Overview

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.

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.

Accountabilities

Your role will be primarily to develop a programme of research and testing to inform digital experience and interface design, working with both internal teams and external partners. We want you to help us further develop our culture of user-centered design practice. You will be self-motivated and able to work independently and as part of an agile team.

Skills

You must be able to show us examples of projects where you have successfully used quantitative and qualitative research techniques to inform design decisions. You must have excellent presentation skills and be able to deliver reports that inspire designers and stakeholders.



In addition to research, you will be expected to have experience of designing for a variety of mobile apps and websites. Taking designs from concept to delivery.
