400 engineers needed: Dyson software lab to rise in Alabang

Smart appliance manufacturer Dyson is building a software laboratory in Alabang, Muntinlupa City and is in need of 400 highly-skilled workers to perform software engineering jobs.

The hub would form part of Dyson’s team, which spans the United States, United Kingdom, China, Singapore, and Malaysia, and would push research and development in robotics, software, artificial intelligence, and machine learning.

The British-led private tech company said the move is part of its £2.75 billion (around $3.68 billion) investment in “future technology.”

Dyson, sometimes dubbed as the “Apple” of appliances for its ambitious tech and price point, set up shop in Calamba, Laguna in 2017 and currently employs some 600 workers to build its Hyperdymium motors.

Scott Maguire, Dyson chief operating officer, said that the software lab is part of its goal to double its portfolio of products and “enter entirely new fields” by 2025.

“The Philippines is home to bright, young engineers who share Dyson’s ambition to develop technologies for the future. We will continue to invest in the Philippines and look forward to having more highly skilled Filipino engineers join our ranks to develop and manufacture exciting new technologies for the future, which will be used all around the world,” Maguire said.

Some of Dyson’s products include air purifiers that give real-time data on air quality and smart robot vacuum cleaners that have vision-based sensing and mapping capabilities.

Maguire said the roles in the software lab will include:

  • Embedded software engineers
  • Automation test engineers
  • Scrum masters
  • Product owners
  • Program managers
  • Release train engineers
  • Team leaders
