Systems Engineer – New Product Innovation

Summary

Salary
£Competitive
Team
Product Design
Location
Malmesbury - United Kingdom

Description

Dyson develop products that are deliberately different and verifiably better than the competition. These solutions are increasingly complex and require closer and closer integration of traditionally separate engineering disciplines. We’re rapidly expanding our systems engineering capability to help our teams tackle that complexity and get our new ideas to market sooner. 
Our System Engineers are recognised as some of our strongest all-round engineers, leveraging system engineering tools and methods, to bring clarity from ambiguity. They may be allocated full time to our most complex products or they might find themselves looking after a portfolio of products with a common architecture.

Accountabilities

  • Elicit, agree and communicate the requirements of our products at user, product, and sub-system levels. 
  • Work collaboratively across functional teams to develop and agree robust system architectures for our new products and platforms. 
  • Lead the system integration activities on projects to ensure that sub-systems work together seamlessly to meet our product requirements. 
  • Develop and maintain validation and verification strategies. 
  • Ensure system level risks are understood, managed and communicated effectively. 
  • Own and coordinate multi-domain physics simulations to speed up development time. 
  • Help us build a world-class systems engineering capability by contributing to methods, tools and training.

Skills

  • An ability to operate effectively on ambiguous early stage product development projects. 
  • Well-developed influencing skills i.e. the ability to persuade and influence cross-functionally at all levels. 
  • An inquisitive mind - an interest in the underlying principles behind all engineering problems regardless of discipline, and a desire to broaden your skillset.
  • A willingness to challenge convention, change direction and redefine process to ensure we’re delivering real value. 
  • A working approach that actively pursues building relationships across and between functions. 
  • The ability to effectively communicate complex ideas and concepts, either verbally or in writing, tailoring communication to suit different levels, particularly senior management.
  • At least 3 years’ experience in systems engineering with an understanding of architecture definition and requirements analysis 
  • A good degree in engineering or a related subject.
  • Experience of developing and validating system models in Simscape/Simulink and MATLAB. 
  • Some experience using MBSE methods with SysML.

Benefits

  • 27 days holiday plus eight statutory bank holidays
  • Pension scheme 
  • Performance related bonus 
  • Life assurance 
  • Sport centre 
  • Free on-site parking 
  • Subsidized café and restaurants 
  • Discounts on Dyson machines
