Audio Engineering Internship Hullavington 2024

Dyson is a global technology enterprise. We solve the problems others choose to ignore, with surprising new inventions that defy convention and simply work better. We are driven by progress and enjoy the opportunity to continuously improve what we do. We are growing fast and our aspirations are huge – more categories, more locations and more people.

Our scale and rapid growth make Dyson rich in new opportunities. We value new ideas and diverse perspectives, so our people are trusted with real work and responsibility from the outset. You will develop fast and have the chance to move into different business areas and regions. And you will be part of a global network of curious people – a community that supports and learns from each other.

At Dyson we do things differently. We look for the brightest new graduates with the right attitude to thrive in our unique culture. We offer real jobs with real salaries and real prospects. You will have the autonomy and freedom to excel and have real impact on our business. We aim to inspire you to become our future leaders. This is why we need creative thinkers, people who are motivated and drive themselves forward.

We push the boundaries of what others have defined as possible. Our engineering approach starts with different thinking. Then we continuously refine our ideas – unwilling to compromise and motivated by finding a better way. Today we employ more than 5,800 people around the world in electrical & electronic engineering, software engineering, mechanical engineering and science-related roles.

About the role

To develop new features and products in the consumer audio space we need a broad range of audio engineering skills, from electro-acoustic design to digital filters, DSP fundamentals, perceptual evaluations, algorithm design and tuning, and embedded machine learning targeted at audio applications. Whatever your specialism you will be creating the hardware and software that make our machines performant, adaptive and reliable. Working with engineers and technical experts across a broad range of disciplines, you’ll be comfortable learning from others, but also sharing your own knowledge, ideas and opinions.

Upon joining us in the internship programme, you’ll be assigned to our Audio Engineering team from day one, with a technical mentor. You’ll be working to support and evolve Dyson’s audio technologies and be given ownership of a project(s) to steer, develop and deliver with the purpose to further our team’s functional and/or technical capabilities. Some of your tasks could include:

  • Shadowing and supporting more senior Audio Engineers
  • Prototyping and demoing advanced audio features in the likes of spatial audio, ANC, hearing augmentation
  • Designing and prototyping data-driven solutions to enable audio sensing and audio logging technologies
  • Interfacing with external vendors and contract manufacturers to embed audio solutions into wearable devices
  • Setting up methods for objective and subjective audio evaluations of early- and late- phase developments
  • Bringing up audio DSP integration with hardware codecs and Bluetooth system-on-chips
  • Simulating electro-acoustical behaviours in advanced electro-mechanical systems
  • Assessing and integrating solutions for machine learning in embedded audio applications
  • Documenting all relevant completed works to a high standard for future reference.

Internship programme

Our internship programme connects academic theory with practical experience. Gain valuable insights into professional applications through mentorships with our industry-leading experts and exposure to cutting-edge practices. Join us for a transformative journey where theory meets application, guided by the industry’s best minds!

About you

You will be contributing to the delivery of the next generation of Dyson technology, so you will need to:

  • be studying towards a Bachelors or Masters in Acoustics, Audio DSP, Machine Learning or related discipline
  • have knowledge and interest in a range of disciplines including audio wearable devices, acoustic miniaturization, audio algorithms and/or analogue & digital sensing technologies
  • be able to commit full-time to a 6 month internship.
  • be able to evidence how you have applied your technical knowledge to solve problems, either through your university projects or as part of your extra-curricular activities
  • be happy to build your own networks to learn from the technical expertise around you
  • be creative in your approach to problem solving to ensure our machines are better
  • be passionate about Dyson and our technology to help us meet our ambitious future plans
