Software Team Lead - Emerging Technologies

Malmesbury, Wiltshire


At Dyson, we never stand still. It’s the entrepreneur in us. In 2016 we launched our second connected product. And we’re pushing to create even more boundary-breaking connected product experiences, from mobile apps, to web/CRM integrations and cloud services. As technology advances, we’re using it to drive innovation. Our electric vehicle and our latest connected products – the Dyson Pure Cool Link and our existing Dyson 360 Eye™ robot vacuum cleaner with its companion eco-system – are proof of that. You’ll be at the heart of it.

About the role

Working in our world-class Research, Design and Development department, you’ll head up a team that’s going to take our next generation of connected products to another level. You’ll:

  • build, coach, train and inspire a software team that’s committed to doing better
  • liaise with stakeholders to help define the connectivity roadmap and strategy
  • manage your team to deliver product developments in line with the agreed roadmap
  • own and drive communications software across Dyson connected products.

About you

You’re a confident technical leader, who’s used to managing a high-performance team to deliver on a range of complex projects. Able to prioritise workloads, you’re a strong communicator and superb relationship-builder. You’ll also have:

  • experience of developing real-time embedded products
  • RTOS and/or embedded OS ( FreeRTOS, ThreadX, Linus etc)
  • High-level programming C / C++ and Python
  • either WiFi ( 802.11 ), Bluetooth V4.x, ZigBee, 802.15.4, 3GPP or MQTT
  • UML knowledge
  • Agile ( Scrum ) experience – certified scrum master a plus
  • any experience of Atlassian development and collaboration tools or Enterprise Architect a bonus.

About Dyson

Dyson is different. It’s certainly not for everyone. But if you want to work for a company that trusts and empowers its people to make the impossible, possible… welcome to Dyson. To show you how much we appreciate what you bring to our business, we keep an eye on the market to ensure salaries and pensions are competitive. You’ll also enjoy a profit-related bonus, generous leave and life insurance. And our culture’s something we’re proud of too. Rapid professional and leadership development, flexible hours and a relaxed dress code are just some of the other reasons our people join, and stay. It’s all geared up to bring out the best in you. We’re confident you won’t be disappointed.
