About the role

As a Design & Development Engineer, you’ll be expected to hit the ground running on one of Dyson’s many live projects, applying your engineering knowledge you gained from your past experience. You are required to work on design concept development, which was researched by New Product Innovation team, into workable, practical, cost effective and reliable solution. Working as part of a larger project team, you’ll have your own set of project deliverables and the chance to take ownership of how these are achieved. Some of your tasks that require your capability and responsibility in full or partial includes but not limited to: -

  • Conceptualize design solution by hand sketching and manual calculation.
  • Develop detail design solution using 3D CAD modelling software, finetune design by using manual calculation or simulation software.
  • Design parts that follow DFx philosophy to ensure good quality, cost effective, and timely to market.
  • Verify design solution by fabricating rapid prototype parts to test to their design intent. Tweak design by hand modification of prototype parts.
  • Translate 3D model into 2D mechanical drawing that captures part critical dimensions and enable process control by employing GD&T.
  • Validate design solution by subjecting first-of-tooled parts to various laboratory tests.
  • Analyze test data by statistical methodology, interpret and translate the result into comprehendible conclusion.
  • Prepare various technical documents, E.g. RCA reports, tolerance stack drawings, DFMEA, technical presentation, etc.
