Senior Controls Systems Engineer


Malmesbury - United Kingdom

About us

Dyson is growing fast and our ambition is huge – more categories, more locations and more people.

We start with an engineering mindset and different thinking, then continuously refine our ideas, unwilling to compromise until we’ve found a better way.

Our new product teams take radical new ideas and develop them into reality. They explore the limits of our technology and optimise it through relentless experimenting, testing and iterating.

About the role

Our Senior Control System Engineering will sit in the Global Hardware Engineering team. You will deliver high quality results in support of control algorithm development and systems requirements to execute function with consideration of safety, thermal performance and product robustness. You will identify and resolve design issues; and perform data analysis and generate comprehensive technical reports. You will assist verification and validation team validation planning, physical testing and compliance review if required.


  • Apply modern control linear system theory and modelling in the Laplace domain to determine the required stability of classical electronics hardware i.e. power supplies, VOC sensors, dust sensors, heater plates.
  • To define and evaluate Commercial Motors Control Algorithms/ Technique for the various types of SPM, IPM and Stepper motors.
  • To provide the analytical approach to Systems thermodynamics, heater control, control algorithms, Software and thermal management.
  • To define algorithms to determine the State of Charge and State of Health for future development of battery systems using Model-Based Estimation and Observe-ability through electrochemical-based models or the traditional equivalent circuit models to predict cell performance.
  • Resource to apply and establish control theories and systems technique to solve system stability issue and sets performance expectations
