Senior Firmware Engineer

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 be part of a team that’s always looking to improve what we do and how we do it. You’ll:

  • develop real-time embedded software (and the associated tools) for a range of our products
  • develop device drivers on a range of silicon platforms
  • analyse high-level requirements into efficient algorithms
  • prototype complex ideas
  • debug real-time software and integrate software with hardware and mechanics.

About you

You’re comfortable with high-level design and abstraction, not to mention the implementation, deployment, testing and debugging of application code. Along with bare-metal low level microprocessor software development experience, you’ll need:

  • a strong background in real-time embedded C
  • to be able to define software level requirements and design with UML
  • software configuration management tools experience
  • to plan and estimate development tasks within an Agile framework
  • experience with unit / acceptance testing and writing testable code.

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.
