Associate Principal Materials Engineer, Cathode (Energy Storage)


Design and Development
Singapore - Technology Centre

About us

From its origins in a small workshop in rural England, Dyson has grown into a technology company with a global footprint. We have offices from Auckland to Zurich, via Singapore, Moscow and Chicago. While engineering remains at our core, our passion for problem solving across different disciplines runs throughout our business. We're a diverse workforce made up of people with different Dyson behaviors.

Our philosophy remains the same as it was 25 years ago when James Dyson invented the first cyclonic vacuum cleaner. We remain family-owned. We don’t bow to outside shareholders or report to the stock exchange. Instead we plot our own path, unshackled from conventional thinking.

Dyson people are encouraged to think differently, challenge convention and be unafraid to make mistakes. We’re creative, collaborative, practical, enthusiastic and resourceful. But most of all we’re passionate about what we do.

Being a pivotal role in the concept to production of a Dyson Designed Cell puts the Development team at the heart of this exciting journey. The Team will translate early concept directions into fully developed, optimised & validated solutions to make at high volume for the next generation of Dyson products.

About the role

As a member of energy storage development organisation, you will develop cathode material and production technology and ensure the materials being ready to integrate with full-form factor cells for Dyson’s future product portfolio. Working closely with the process team and cell application team, you will deploy first-of-a-kind chemical production processes, equipment and orchestrate corresponding materials development to enable performance targets. Work to further accelerate promising materials for subsequent generations to be ready for use in Dyson’s future roadmap.
