Principal Engineer


Design and Development
Singapore - St James Power Station Headquarters

About us

Our New Product Innovation (NPI) teams are at the forefront of technology development. With over 600 projects ongoing at any one time, we are constantly looking to push the boundaries of what others have defined as possible. With state-of-the-art facilities and a fully collaborative approach to innovation, we are looking for engineers to conceptualise and develop products of the future.

About the role

As a Principal Mechanical Engineer within NPI, you’ll be working closely with other NPI engineers, Research specialists and product development teams to create and develop new technology, product formats and business cases for projects in our portfolio. Working on the projects you are assigned to, you will own the development of complex mechanical assemblies within the NPI team and support other members of the team by conducting FEA, CFD, and other technical analyses. You will speed up and improve the design process by building virtual models and providing accurate insights into real-world performance. As a senior and experienced member of the team you will provide mentorship and technical guidance to your junior colleagues.

You’ll be part of a new chapter for NPI as we establish and build project teams in Singapore.  Working with some of the best minds Dyson has to offer, and presenting your ideas to members of senior management, you can be a key part in the invention and development of our future products.

About you

As a Principal Mechanical Engineer, you will initiate and develop complex mechanical systems in support of new product concepts, helping to deliver key pieces of complex technology that help to define the specification of next generation products. Producing mechanical designs across a range of device types and technologies from concept, through evaluation to delivery.

At times you will use hand calculations and/or computer simulation to validate designs through the development process, backed up with lab-based testing, characterisation and validation. Analysing test results and communicating these with both technical and non-technical colleagues, constantly looking to challenge and develop Dyson engineering practices to continuously improve design quality.
