About us

Dyson is a global technology enterprise. We solve the problems others choose to ignore, with surprising new inventions that defy convention and simply work better. We’re driven by progress and thrive on the challenge of relentless improvement. We’re growing fast and our ambition is huge – more categories, more locations and more people.

About the role

The main applications that the team are working on are motor drives, heater drives, batteries and IMU based applications. The algorithms that we design range from classic linear control systems to advanced control systems (Kalman filter, state-feedback, LQR…) and machine learning algorithms depending on the application.

  • Requirement specification and algorithm development for control and estimation functions with consideration for safety & compliance, performance and robustness, analysis and ownership.

  • System modelling using first principle differential equations, transfer functions, state-space, multi-physics models (Simscape/Stateflow).

  • Apply classic and advanced control/estimation theory and machine learning theory to develop control and estimation functions.

  • Evaluate algorithm design feasibility through theoretical analysis and testing.

  • Support software implementation and integration.

  • Identify and resolve design issues; and perform data analysis and generate comprehensive technical reports.

  • Assist verification and validation team with validation planning, physical testing and certification if necessary.

About you

  • Degree (or equivalent) in (Electrical/Electronics/Control Engineering) plus relevant, hands-on experience in requirement specification and analysis.
