Software Placement 2021
Our internships are different. Join us and you’ll be working at the forefront of technology, using your technical know-how to influence the evolution of Dyson connected machines.
You’ll be supporting the evolution of Dyson connected products. Our Software team develop app integration and ensure connectivity in our machines. Since we launched our first connected product in 2014, we’re now leading the way in creating software for connected technology and a more intuitive owner experience. The team works across the entire product lifecycle of our connected machines, from conception and mapping user journeys, through to product release. Network-based robotics and intelligent sensing technologies, all enabled by advanced software and app platforms, are all cementing Dyson's place as a pioneering global technology enterprise.
At our UK Technology Campus, we have opportunities a 12-month internship/year in industry starting in the September 2021, for penultimate year students who are eager to play a key part in bringing the next generation of Dyson technology to the world.
About the role
You’ll be assigned to a live project team putting your university learning into practice from the get-go. Whatever you’re doing the work will be challenging, varied and you’ll be in the thick of things. You’ll be interacting with teams across Research, Design & Development (RDD) including product developers ensuring our solutions are functional, secure and easy to use.
Depending on your skillset you could be working on real time embedded software, Mobile App development, debugging, cloud computing or fast prototyping in C/C++.
So as well as the technical know-how and passion to learn more, you’ll need to be inquisitive by nature, enthusiastic about technology, creative and tenacious in your approach to problem solving. You’ll be comfortable learning from others but also sharing your own knowledge, ideas and opinions. In fact, we encourage this.
For the duration of your internship, you will have regular performance conversations as well as opportunities for development to enable you to build your reputation within the team, and this could be just the start. We’ll be looking to offer our high performing interns to return on our graduate programme.
