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 behaviours.

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. However, most of all we’re passionate about what we do.

About the role

Reporting to the Design Engineering Manager, this role will encompass Design and Mechanical responsibilities, Object creation and Technical communications. A successful candidate will have the communication skills to translate technical feedback whilst working in a culturally diverse team to translate the specification into design prototypes and validated production objects.

  • Lead, and facilitate the growth of, Design & Mechanics team members to deliver solutions to complex engineering problems and maximise their potential.

  • Responsibility of mechanical objects, structure and design requirements to ensure the cell can meet form, fit & function – devise and convert design requirements to resolution to ensure a smooth transition to production.

  • Responsibility of the mechanical integrity of cell components ensuring the design, tolerance system and assembly sequence delivers high yield, low cost solutions.

  • Create, optimise & validate mechanical designs using appropriate modelling, simulation and analysis tools. This would include FE, impact analysis and vibration assessments.

  • Implement lab-based testing for component or system characterisation and verification; be ready to create, implement and educate test methods for the validation team.

  • Use systems engineering methodologies to optimise product performance and solve complex engineering problems.

  • Design mechanical solutions to meet requirements of safety, reliability and robustness for the end application. Work in tandem with Application Engineering to realise engineering samples and customer deliveries.

  • Collaborate with Process Development, Manufacturing Operations and leading vendors to design and critique manufacturing equipment to realise novel prototyping and production processes.

  • Generate mechanical design information for Energy Storage, including escalating any significant recommendations or incidents, and advise the team on risk and mitigations.

  • Build and manage relationships with internal departments, external suppliers and industry bodies within Energy Storage.

  • Provide clear presentation of technical information and supporting documentation to global teams.

  • Challenge and develop Dyson engineering practices to continuously enhance efficiency.
