Dyson LogoWe’re Dyson, a global technology enterprise. Since 1993 we’ve been finding new ways to solve real-world problems – from vacuum cleaners with revolutionary cyclone technology, to a hairdryer with intelligent heat control, and now bringing our uniquely diverse technology portfolio together into a single, exciting and different product, the Dyson Electric Vehicle.

We employ over 12,000 people globally, with over 4,800 in the UK; a third of whom are engineers and scientists. We remain market-leaders in the UK, and also in the US, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Western Europe and Canada.

With interests in artificial intelligence, machine learning, haircare, electric vehicles and much more, the next few years will be our biggest and busiest yet. With that comes the need for more people to help us reach our 2020 ambitions and beyond.
