Dyson – Why Work For Us?


We’re Dyson. A global technology enterprise. Our business is built from a desire to solve the problems others ignore.

Obsessed with improvement

At Dyson we believe everything could be better. Fuelled by a frustration with things that don’t work properly and a relentless obsession with making them work better, we’ve spent the last 25 years pioneering inventions and continually improving.

Inventing the future

We’re growing fast. And our ambition is huge. But it’s not simply about more people and more profit. Dyson is all about better ideas and new technologies. It’s about inventing the future.

Unconventional

Our philosophy remains the same as it was 25 years ago when James Dyson invented the first cyclonic vacuum cleaner. We remain family-owned. We don’t bow to outside shareholders or report to the stock exchange. Instead we plot our own path, unshackled from conventional thinking.

Cool surroundings

Alexandria is located just four kilometres south of the Sydney central business district and is a land of converted warehouses where you can find great boutique food emporiums, pre-loved antiques and vintage homewares all around. In an open, contemporary, converted manufacturing precinct, our team brings Dyson technology to life.

Our dedicated customer care, service and logistics hubs at Taren Point and Parramatta are light, modern, open-planned spaces that nurture collaborative working.

At Dyson we constantly strive to find a better way to solve everyday problems. So we have three core values that run through everything we do.

Different

We are brave explorers, curious and excited by the unknown. Using engineering logic and ingenious thinking, we create our own future, overturning conventional wisdom.

Authentic

We work together to create new and exciting experiences that are entirely our own. Nothing is borrowed.

Better

We start from a position of dissatisfaction and strive to make everything radically better. When we think we're close, we transform again. We never stand still.

Ideal work/life balance

At all locations you'll find Dyson perfectionists hard at work. But ambition is balanced with relaxation and recreation. Team members often meet for Super Mario tournaments, table tennis or catch-ups in the common areas. Our locations are close to parks for those wishing to make the most of the sunny outdoors. Taren Point is close to the long beaches of Cronulla – ideal for an after-work surf. And nearby are the sweeping mangrove forests with cycle tracks and cafés dotted among the trees. Team culture is at our core and we hold regular events including charity initiatives, monthly social lunches and team bonding activities.

#InsideDyson

Our global reputation is priceless and it always hangs on what we do next. Dyson is a unique technology enterprise. We pioneer. Our biggest category today didn’t even exist a few years ago. Our next biggest category? That could be where you come in.

While engineering remains at our core, our passion for problem solving across different disciplines runs throughout our business. We're a diverse workforce made up of people with different Dyson behaviours. So, the chances are we've got a role to suit your area of expertise.

Australia was Dyson’s first export market outside of Europe. Now, with a dynamic head office in Sydney, contact centres in Taren Point and Parramatta, and service centres in four states, we have more than 300 Dyson people helping to bring Dyson technology to life across the country.

Dyson is different. Our culture is unique. It's not for everyone, but if you thrive on challenge and are excited by change then it could be for you.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Dyson (Sydney) in July 2018.

    Interview

    It was a relaxed informal discussion about my background and skills. We also had an open discussion about the scope of the role and company.
    It was a 2 stage process, firstly with the direct manager and then 2nd interview was with the senior leader.
     Both interviewers had very different styles but felt genuine and said the same things.
