Lead Thermo-Fluids Engineer


Research Engineering
Malmesbury - United Kingdom

About us

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’re growing fast and our ambition is huge – more categories, more locations and more people.

We start with an engineering mindset and different thinking, then continuously refine our ideas, unwilling to compromise until we’ve found a better way.

About the role

Within Dyson Research we define what’s next. At the very start of the new product ideas chain lays the technologies that enable them. Dyson Research delivers the long term support to the global company growth through technology innovation in our state of the art Wiltshire campuses. Our New Product Innovation team relies on the development of key technologies for new innovative products, after which the New Product Development team carries them through to manufacturing; Dyson Research not only delivers the birth of new technologies but also supports those technologies through to their realisation and integration within a product.
You will be responsible for scoping, researching and delivering thermodynamic technologies that will enable the next generation of Dyson Environmental Care machines. You will use engineering analysis, experimentation and system design to deliver product focussed technologies in partnership with our New Product Innovation teams. You will be required to work both autonomously and as part of a multi-disciplinary team to deliver against Dysons ambitious goals.
Key responsibilities:
• Fundamental research into concepts relating to thermodynamics and heat transfer.
