Our company in a nutshell

Dyson is a British technology and engineering company established by James Dyson in 1987. We design and manufacture a variety of household appliances such as vacuum cleaners, hand dryers, bladeless fans, heaters and hair dryers.

Vacuum cleaner bags that clog, dangerous fast-spinning blades and extreme heat from hair dryers. We transform every category we enter with radical and iconic re-inventions, that work, perform and look very different.

Research, Design and Development (RDD) is the engine that drives our business. Based in one of our global Engineering hubs, you’ll be part of a 4,000-strong team of engineers and scientists. Dyson is a place for inventors and creative minds with exceptional technical ability.

Software, electronics, mechanical engineering, design or research - no matter what your discipline, from day one you’ll be using your skills to help us develop revolutionary new technologies. That means working on top secret projects alongside experts in your field, using cutting-edge machinery.

Our engineers challenge convention, build, test, fail, refine and fail again. It’s an iterative process. To be different takes resilience and patience. But you’ll see first-hand how your discipline feeds into each product lifecycle.

Life at Dyson for graduates

At Dyson, our mission is simple - to solve problems others ignore, true of all our people. With ambitious plans and expanding spaces, we have a broad range of interests. From a range of engineering disciplines to marketing, finance, sales and IT, our graduate programmes are far from conventional.

You can expect to be working on live projects and encounter Dyson people from around the world. You’ll gain broad experiences, learn from the experts and take on real responsibilities from day one.
