Singapore - Singapore


The engineer will join the growing simulation and analysis team within Motors & Power Systems to apply their skills and experience in simulation to invent the next generation of Dyson Motor technologies that enhance the company’s technical advantage in existing and future products. He/she will carry out FEA/CFD simulation models and develop analytical methods along with dedicated experimentation to verify findings. This will provide insight into various aspects of motor design to help drive motor projects from initial conception, through the various technology readiness levels, and finally into production. The team is looking for a candidate with simulation knowledge in any of the following areas: Aerodynamics, Acoustics, Thermal, Structural. Experience in turbomachinery design would be beneficial. 


Dyson offers a unique opportunity for talented individuals to invent, design and develop market leading products for the global market. By working in our world class Research Design and Development department, these individuals have the opportunity to work alongside leading technical specialists and highly motivated creative people, to create products which fulfil our ambition of being truly different.


Provide, co-ordinate and support Simulation team within the Motors group and across RDD:

  • Drive designs forward based on sound engineering knowledge and ensure correct decisions are taken at all stages of the design process.
  • Focus on technology delivery to enable our next generation of products.

  • Experience in driving new concepts from design to analysis to validation via prototype testing.

  • Utilize simulation (CFD and/or FEA) and other analytical tools to improve and enhance the current Dyson motor technology for next generation products.

  • Analyse results, summarise findings and communicate these solutions to project teams, including senior managers and directors.
