Lead Turbomachinery Aero 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 driven by progress and thrive on the challenge of relentless improvement. We’re growing fast and our ambition is huge – more categories, more locations and more people.

About the role

An exciting opportunity has arisen to work within our Motors, Power and Electronic Systems Development Team to apply unique skills and experience to deliver our next generation motors and integrate them into future products.

As an Aerodynamic / Turbomachinery Engineer, you will use analytical techniques to add insight into experimental results, to drive early development concepts and support projects. In addition you will be expected to continually improve and develop experimental techniques and design methodologies, to further enhance the capabilities of our team and Dyson as a whole.

The candidate will be expected to take proactive approach in identifying and evaluating new motor technologies, specifically taking a leading role in the areas of turbo machinery aerodynamics, aero-acoustics and thermal management.

You will be responsible to develop motors aerodynamic systems to achieve robustness and high performance. You will make sure the aerodynamic performance is maintained throughout the development process from concept to production and beyond. You will ensure there is a smooth transition of projects from development to manufacturing and provide any required support afterwards. You will also be involved in aero-acoustic and noise reduction activities of the aero system and motor as a whole providing unique solutions for the low noise motors.

You will be required to:

  • Deliver product focused motor aerodynamics to support development of new generation Dyson Digital Motors.
  • Generate innovative concepts for new technologies through detailed aero and thermal numerical analysis. 
  • Experimentally validate aerodynamic systems, thoroughly analyse test results, summarise findings and communicate to other members of project team, ensuring all work is documented.
  • Liaise with internal research teams to ensure effective project transfers and integration of technology into future product.
  • Provide design advice and guidance to design managers and product teams, taking a lead role and responsibility for the areas of aerodynamic design of the motor, fluid flow and thermal management. Support this advice through experimental validation and other relevant analysis methods and tools (including CFD).
  • Build and maintain effective working relationships with design engineers at all levels, including the relevant technical teams in the Far East (travailing might be required)
  • Work closely with the other engineering disciplines to ensure that the product performance, reliability and cost expectations are met, all within the planned project timeline.

About you

  • A first degree or Masters in Aeronautical or Mechanical Engineering or equivalent (other relevant engineering disciplines will be considered). Turbomachinery experience would be advantage.
  • Fundamental knowledge of thermodynamics and fluid dynamics.
  • Experience in using commercial CAD tools, preferably Siemens NX.
  • A good understanding of the principles and application of CFD, with previous experience in using ANSYS / NUMECA / CONCEPTS tools.
  • Good understanding of experimental techniques, particularly with regard to pressure, temperature and flow measurement.
  • Be able to multi-task and plan effectively when working with a variety of project teams in an often high-pressure, competitive environment.
  • A good working knowledge of MS Office and ideally MATLAB.
  • Ability to communicate appropriate, concise and accurate information, both in writing and verbally.
  • Excellent team-working skills


  • 27 days holiday plus eight statutory bank holidays 
  • Pension scheme
  • Performance related bonus
  • Life assurance
  • Free on-site parking
  • Subsidized café
  • Discounts on Dyson machines
  • Private Medical and Dental
