About us

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

We push the boundaries of what others have defined as possible. Our approach starts with an engineering mindset and different thinking. Then we continuously refine our ideas – unwilling to compromise and driven by an obsession for finding a better way.

Power Systems is a global function that designs and develops Dyson’s internal technologies that enable most of our products. The team has experts in wide range of areas (mechanical, electrical, software, project management) and is responsible of the development from early stages through to production.

The Mechanical Design team within Power Systems is responsible for mechanical design, build process, sample building, analysis, and experimental validation and verification of mechanical robustness and reliability of the technology project.

About the role

  • Create/implement great technology to produce high quality and reliable Dyson Hyperdimium Motor that meet all performance and functional criteria.
  • Work with global RDD teams (simulation/electronic/mechanical/automation engineers) for realization of new Dyson Hyperdimium Motor technology research into the final production design, ensuring product performance, reliability and cost expectations are met.
  • Take a proactive approach in the generation of solutions/ideas -present solutions/ideas and concepts to senior management, for example through design reviews presentation.
  • Take an active role to ensure that all engineering problems are resolved thoroughly & validated through appropriate test methods.
  • Use established Dyson methodology, good engineering practice & discipline to deliver robust solutions in agreed timeframe, such as but not limited to Tolerance Stack Analysis, 3DCS, Process Capability (Cpk), DFMEA, Design for Automation, Minitab, etc.
  • Perform hands-on approach in motor build prototyping and using basic measurement equipment, including ability to design required jig and fixture setup, and Proof of Principle machine evaluation and buy-off.
  • Deliver and maintain design documentation such as drawings, Bill of Material, limit test reports timely.
  • Communicate between all relevant teams to ensure effective & timely input - these may be external as well as internal team.
  • Manage sub-project tasks assigned, with ability to hold technical discussion with internal and external cross-functional team, take calculated risk with strong justification if required.
  • Initiate and or review Engineering Change, making 3D/2D & BOM changes/creation with strong justification; liaise with Manufacturing & Production to ensure smooth implementation.
  • Challenge & develop Dyson engineering practices to continuously improve technologies/design/product quality.
  • Liaise with our In-house Manufacturing Team for engineering evaluations or special builds in support of productivity/quality improvement projects or cost reduction initiatives such as alternative parts/suppliers, engineering redesign, etc.
  • Mentor Graduates, Junior Mechanical Design Engineer and other team members & day-to-day management of others if relevant.
