Junior PCB Engineer


Malmesbury - United Kingdom


This is a fantastic opportunity to build a career as a PCB design engineer, within a technology company that routinely challenges convention to create authentic, complex electronics products; requiring sophisticated, integrated PCB design solutions.

To meet the diverse challenges delivering these solutions provide, we are looking for motivated individuals displaying the right aptitude and abilities to undertake a Junior role in the team; learning the new skills necessary for this challenging occupation. The career scope and potential for this role is significant; apart from PCB Design, training will be provided in a number of areas such as DFM (Design for Manufacture), PCB/PCBA manufacture appreciation, CAD, drafting and design office principles, and office applications such as PLM (Product Life Management system).

Reporting to the UK PCB Team lead, the successful candidate will become part of a busy ECAD team working within Research Design and Development (RDD), helping to generate integrated and robust PCB designs for an expanding Electronics group. Our growth is also reflected by increased product categories and design diversity; expanding our technology roadmaps, and driving us to deliver smarter solutions. Our work encompasses everything from early conceptual prototypes to mass production design, with a wide diversity of PCB technologies and requirements.

Dyson RDD is vibrant, diverse, very challenging and always interesting; you automatically become a part of the design innovation and engineering that make Dyson the technology brand it is. If you want a stimulating and rewarding career as a design engineer, it’s definitely the right place to be…


Initially your job will be to engage with the training and opportunities provided as you undertake the variety of design and associated tasks assigned to you. These will gradually expand both in scope and responsibility commensurate to your own ability and progress, with the ultimate aim and expectation being for you to achieve PCB Engineer status. Therefore you will be expected to continually and proactively develop your skills and knowledge in order to achieve this ambitious objective.

You should enjoy being challenged, function well within a team, but also work independently as required.
