Dyson is a company that thrives on difference; challenging convention to create authentic, complex electronics products. We need innovative engineers who constantly challenge, adapt and invent; identifying problems and delivering solutions.
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), generating PCB designs and providing technical support for an expanding Electronics group. Our growth is reflected by increased product categories and design diversity; expanding our technology roadmaps, and driving us to deliver smarter solutions. Your work will encompass everything from early conceptual prototypes to mass production design, with a wide diversity of PCB technologies and requirements.
It’s a demanding role and the ideal candidate will be an experienced and motivated design engineer, with a proven track record creating robust, reliable high-quality designs; accurately, consistently, on time, every time. You will also be required to undertake a variety of PCB design related activities, functioning within a team, but also able to work independently as required.
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’re a design engineer, it’s definitely the right place to be…
Key expectations for this role are:
PCB Design encompassing the skills & experience requirements listed below
Collaborate with project teams to help generate a specification for each design.
Help identify the best PCB technologies and practices to suit the requirements of each project
Identify PCB engineering problems, and take initiative to generate solutions through a methodical and structured approach, providing technical guidance to others as required.
Challenge & develop Dyson engineering practices to continuously improve technologies/design/product quality
Consistently apply, and drive adoption of BiC (best-in-class) principles
Provide PCB technical support to reviews and meetings as required
Proactive support to DfX and CAD optimisation teams
Technical leading for specific projects
Promote consistent working practices & process adherence as part of a global team approach
Act as a role model and provide technical leadership & support
Mentoring & coaching others when required
To meet these expectations we encourage our engineers to grow and expand their own capabilities, encouraging career development through training, experience and promotion; Dyson provides plenty of opportunities for motivated individuals to break through their own boundaries, to excel and drive their careers forward.
