About us

Being a pivotal role in the concept to production of a Dyson Designed Cell puts the Development team at the heart of this exciting journey. The Team will translate early concept directions into fully developed, optimised & validated solutions to make at high volume for the next generation of Dyson products.

About the role

Development of novel Cell technology comes with new and highly challenging manufacturing processes. This role encompasses processes required to progress technology established in research through to scaled manufacture. Being the junction point for the cell technology and the manufacturing requirements to deliver a solution to meet aspirations of both.

A successful candidate will work in the Energy Storage Development team to deliver solutions to difficult object problems where design and development of novel cell manufacturing processes are required; along with proven track records working with cross functional teams from proof of concept to high volume manufacturing. Reporting to the Senior Engineering Manager, the role will encompass Innovative Cell manufacturing process design, Inter-team co-ordination, Project management and Technical communications. You will be part of a multi-disciplinary team in a fast-moving and dynamic environment.

Main Duties/Responsibilities:

  • Be the driver of novel/innovative process design ensuring the technical requirements are met for Form, Fit & Function from a process perspective – construct design requirements and develop to resolution to ensure a smooth transition to equipment & production teams

  • Contribute to the development and optimisation of new technologies that can be incorporated into clear manufacturing process and equipment needs to give a performance, cost, productivity or environmental advantage

  • You will be the primary point of contact for the responsible processes, working alongside research and manufacturing teams. This will be enhanced through frequent and effective engagement & communication with the energy storage cross functional teams

  • Conduct proof of concept evaluation and design of experiments during development, establish baseline process and metrics

  • Characterise new and existing processes, establish process margins and controls for critical parameters to improve process robustness

  • Support the design and operational management to identify balanced solutions and opportunities to meet overall project objectives

  • Play an active role in supporting the understanding of future Dyson cell requirements, working with the research and development teams to drive new specifications and further enhance the next generation of Dyson’s battery technology

  • Build relationships with internal departments, external regulators, industry bodies within Energy Storage

  • Exhibit clear presentation of technical information and supporting documentation to ensure accurate hand over to cross functional teams

  • Be vocal a participant, influencer and presence for Cell Process Development

  • Challenge and develop Dyson engineering practices to continuously improve efficiency

  • Excellent relationship building skills with the ability to build a network of connections both upstream and downstream within Dyson

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

About you

  • Degree or Masters in Engineering or Physical Sciences (Materials, Mechanical, Electronics, Chemistry, Physics or equivalent)

  • Min. 5 years’ hands-on experience and background within process development of new and novel technologies in battery, electronics industries

  • Good experience in battery cell assembly manufacturing processes

  • Ability to apply engineering fundamentals and towards manufacturing process development – demonstrated understanding of how hardware and process interact with each other

  • Ability to work with external suppliers, partners to identify, design and develop feasible manufacturing solutions from pilot run to mass production

  • Knowledgeable in machine specification, procurement, commissioning and qualification

  • Good knowledge in pFMEA, root cause analysis, design of experiments (DoE), statistical data analysis and interpretation of experimental data, including software used for analysis (JMP, Minitab etc.)

  • Persistent approach to problem solving and an inquisitive nature

  • Strong organisational skills with a methodical and detailed approach

  • A good team player, highly motivated with positive and can-do attitude

  • Must demonstrate a passion for working for Dyson

Desirable:

  • Experience in one of more of these areas is an advantage:

    • Battery manufacturing (Li-ion or other chemistry)

    • Cell stacking and lamination

    • Tab welding (ultrasonic and/or laser welding)

    • Pouch forming and sealing

    • Electrolyte injection

  • A broad understanding of material properties related to battery cell materials is an advantage

  • Experience in semiconductor module packaging and assembly

  • Ability to communicate at all levels of the organisation

  • When required, travel to other Dyson facilities in Asia/UK for project engineering build support
