Senior Acoustics & Vibration Engineer


Mechanical Engineering
Malmesbury - United Kingdom

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

This is a fantastic opportunity for an established Acoustician to work within a small team of like-minded engineering problem solvers within our Technology Development – Environmental Care and Lighting department.  The successful candidate will apply their skills and experience in acoustics and vibration to provide noise and vibration insight and understanding to the business.  
They will carry out experimental and simulation investigations to identify and characterise key noise sources and transfer paths of our products, and provide effective solutions to improve these.  

Working alongside the Design teams, they will drive the acoustic development of our new, class-leading products from early concepts to production-ready, ensuring our noise and vibration targets are met.

Key responsibilities:
  • Drive designs forward based on sound engineering knowledge and ensure correct decisions are taken at all stages of the design process with regards to noise and vibration.
  • Interrogate the acoustics of prototype machines using appropriate measurement and simulation methods.
  • Analyse results, summarise findings and communicate these noise and vibration solutions to project teams, including senior managers and directors.
  • Support design teams to provide insight and solutions to noise and vibration challenges across RDD.
  • Mentor less-experienced team members in noise and vibration theories and best practices.
  • Liaise with Research and Development Teams to ensure an effective transfer of technologies into production products.
  • Identify potential new research areas which would benefit from noise and vibration technology development.
