Global Technology Development is a diverse group of curious, world class engineering specialists. We are experts in our fields and we ensure Dyson products are on the edge of what’s possible.  We operate across different technologies, categories and locations but we’re united, highly collaborative and influential.  We pride ourselves on our integrity, honesty and transparency and these traits are at the core of our interactions with the rest of the Dyson world.  We have global opportunities and a personal development culture. We focus on growing our technical experts and our leaders of tomorrow.

Based in our new facility in Senai, our Materials Engineer will play a key role in bringing proprietary Dyson technology to the market.  As part of a global project team, working with Design Engineers and specialists in Fluid Dynamics and Structural Analysis, this team will design and develop new technology – exploring the limits of the technology and optimising our solution. 


As part of a global project team, the Materials Engineer will:

  • Capture and document the requirements for new materials, particularly ceramics and metals
  • Explore and evaluate solution materials, make recommendation for selection
  • Develop or improve current materials that are suit for purpose
  • Identify failure modes and carry out experiments to understand the limits of candidate materials
  • Write and execute test methods to verify material solution
  • Carry out root cause analysis on failed parts or assemblies
  • Collaborate with process engineers to develop new manufacturing processes
  • Support the continuous improvement of existing manufacturing processes


In order to be successful, our Materials Engineer should have some understanding of:

  • The characteristics of ceramics and metals, and the methods used to specify them
  • The tools and measurement methods used to verify ceramic and metallic materials
  • The failure modes of ceramic and metallic materials
  • The methods used to conduct failure analysis of ceramic and metallic materials
  • The simulation tools and methods used to understand material performance and predict failure modes
  • The standards relevant to characterising ceramic and metallic materials
  • The process used in the manufacture and application of ceramic and metallic parts or assemblies
