Senior Mechanical Design Engineer, Battery Pack (Energy Storage)


Design and Development
Singapore - Technology Centre

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

This role houses the responsibility for the Battery Pack Mechanical Engineering and constituent parts. Being the junction point for the pack technology and the physical requirements, this ownership means delivering a solution to meet aspirations of both. A successful candidate will have the communication skills to translate technical feedback whilst working in a culturally diverse team to translate chemistry requirements into design prototypes and production object.

Reporting to the Design Engineering Manager, the role will encompass Design and Mechanical responsibilities, Object creation and Technical communications.

  • Responsibility of Mechanical objects, Structure and Design Requirements to ensure the pack 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 pack components ensuring the design, tolerance system and assembly sequence meet the requirements of safety, reliability, and robustness, as well as delivers high yield, and low-cost solutions

  • Create, optimise & validate mechanical designs using appropriate modelling, simulation and analysis tools. This would include using commercially available software for static, impact and vibration assessment, as well as thermal analysis

  • 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

  • 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, across different departments, external suppliers, and industry bodies.

  • Provide clear presentation of technical information and supporting documentation to ensure accurate information for other teams within the UK or Far East.

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

  • Ability to work sensitively, discretely, and effectively across Dyson.

  • Strong knowledge and understanding of design process, mechanical design principal, manufacturing process and industrial standard and practice.

  • Well versed in the use of static and transient mechanical FEA for structural and thermal analysis.

  • Well versed in 3-D modelling and creation of 2-D drawing with commercial CAD Software, preferably NX.

  • A good understanding of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD & T) concept and tolerance stacking for design and manufacturing.

  • Experience in design prototyping and/or laboratory-based testing and validation of materials and sub-systems.

  • Delivery team experience.

  • Strong organisational skills with a methodical and detailed approach.

  • Persistent approach to problem solving and an inquisitive nature.

  • Must demonstrate a passion for working for Dyson.

  • Willing to work in Tuas area and travel between Dyson’s facilities in Singapore.
