Dyson Sales Expert

Dyson

5001 to 10000 employees

100 new machines. Completely new product portfolios. Dyson’s next few years are going to be the biggest and busiest ever. All thanks to a £1.5 billion commitment to our future technology pipeline. But we need more people to realize this ambition. By 2020, we’ll have brought in 5,000 more people. The Dyson tale began with corded vacuums – when James Dyson invented the world's first bagless vacuum cleaner. Those machines made us what we are today, and as recently as 2012 still represented 80% of our business. Today, half of the technology we sell is now made up of our cordless vacuums, hand dryers, fans and lighting. In 2012, there was no such thing as a cordless category at Dyson. Just three years later, it became our biggest seller. In three more, who knows what the leading Dyson technology might be? (We've got an idea – but to find out, first you'll have to join us.)

Dyson is a global technology company. We transform every category we enter with radical and iconic re-inventions, that work, perform and look very different. We’re growing fast. Our ambition is huge. But we are not for everyone. It’s not easy or comfortable. However if you thrive on challenge and are excited by change – it could be for you.
