Design Engineers - NPI - All levels

Posted 18 January by Dyson

At Dyson we are encouraged to think differently, challenge convention and be unafraid to make mistakes. We're creative, collaborative, practical and enthusiastic. But most of all we're hugely passionate about what we do.

Our New Product Innovation design team is growing and we are looking for talented, experienced Industrial Designers at various levels to join us on our journey.

Our Design teams are the idea factory of Dyson. It's where we took the bag out of the vacuum, the blades out of a fan and the heat out of hand dryers. With free-flowing curiosity and creativity, ideas are never in short supply. The key is deciding which ones could change the world and which should, for now, be shelved. This is done by the New Product Innovation team, who pass on the best ideas to New Product Development. Sketching, prototyping, testing, failing and refining follow. It can take months, even years. But those ideas that make it are big - the kind that transform markets.

We are able to offer a unique opportunity for talented individuals to invent, design and develop market leading products for the global market. By working in our world class Research Design and Development department, these individuals have the opportunity to work alongside leading technical specialists and highly motivated creative people, to create products which fulfill our ambition of being truly different and better than our competitors.

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. From 2016, our HQ will begin doubling its footprint with an ambitious new expansion.
