Senior Technology Development Engineer (Mechanical)


Science and Research
Malaysia - Advanced Manufacturing

About us

Research, Design and Development (RDD) is Dyson's engine room. It’s where our engineers challenge convention, build, test, fail, refine, and then fail again - all to invent technology that solves problems that others ignore. You will be part of a global team that delivers groundbreaking projects that create trail blazing Dyson technologies to the world. 

Based in our new RDD Centre at Senai, our engineers will play a key role in bringing proprietary Dyson technology to the market as part of a global project team working with specialists in Materials, Process, Chemical, Thermals, Fluid Dynamics and Structural Analysis. This team will design and develop new technology – exploring the limits of the technology and optimising our solutions and all of this will be done within a Dyson owned Development Centre that is integrated within an Advanced Manufacturing Centre.

About the role

  • Responsible for owning, capturing, and documenting the requirements for mechanical performance.
  • Responsible for generating, exploring, evaluating, and recommending solutions to improve structural integrity using analytical, numerical, and experimental methods.
