Mechanical Technology Development

Mechanical Technology Development provides the specialist engineering expertise required to deliver pioneering Dyson technologies and exceptional product performance. The department is home to over 250 of the world's best engineers, scientists, and technicians working across eight global RDD sites to develop technology for all of our product categories.

Developing pioneering technologies

Dyson continually pioneers new technology and we increasingly work in fields that many people would not imagine Dyson venturing into. We’re looking for people from a range of mechanical disciplines to help develop new technologies that will be used in millions of products, homes and other spaces. Our teams of scientists, engineers, technicians and specialists across the UK, Singapore, Malaysia and the Philippines are the experimenters, optimisers and lateral thinkers behind Dyson’s problem-solving. Join the team and become a part of a collaborative, supportive community of experts who are pushing the boundaries of physics to develop innovative technology.

Dyson Malmesbury

State of the art

Our engineers work in state-of-the-art facilities, utilising cutting edge equipment, toolsets and processes. We nurture new technologies from the concept stage all the way through to mass production so you’ll experience the complete product creation process as part of the team. We have a personal development mindset and work closely with the Dyson Institute of Engineering and Technology day to day. Whether it's in-house product development, supporting outside development partners, or a combination of the two, we lead the way in delivering the next generation of Dyson technology.

Separation and Filtration Engineering

For decades, Dyson's bread and butter has been removing dirt and contaminants from surfaces and the air. We have dedicated teams of skilled engineers and scientists working to find new methods to push the boundaries of what is possible. We are looking for the brightest minds to help us realise our aspirations, whether it is through revolutionary new cyclonic separation systems or developing new filtration systems that can remove even the smallest particles from the air.

Fluids Dynamics and Thermodynamics

Across all of our product categories, Dyson is at the forefront of complex flow physics and technology. The efficient movement of air and the careful regulation of temperature are critical to ensuring that our products are the best they can be. Our engineers are always innovating new methods to harness the power of airflow to develop incredible new products like the Dyson Airwrap™. Our team of experts across aerodynamic and thermodynamics use cutting-edge test equipment and state-of-the-art computational software to help us deliver the best products.

Performance and Pickup Engineering

The science behind performance and pickup is fascinating yet extremely complex, with many mechanical engineering challenges to solve, such as removing dirt from floors and carpets easily, repeatably, and in the most energy efficient manner, picking up breakfast cereal and the smallest dust particles at the same time, whilst also preventing any blockages. These are just a few of the difficulties that our Pickup Engineering experts tackle on a regular basis while developing Dyson vacuum cleaners.

Mechanical Motor Engineering

Dyson has pioneered the development of high-speed motor-compressors for its products, and we look forward to building on the advantages of new materials, manufacturing processes and miniaturisation. We are looking for specialists in structural dynamics, thermo and fluid dynamics, turbomachinery, and acoustics; we also need great mechanical design engineers who can thoughtfully combine all those specialisms.

Structural Analysis

It’s not unusual at Dyson to create designs for parts that are very unique. We have to determine, how the part is going to mould, how much will it expand due to centrifugal forces, what's the approach on balancing the rotating mass, is the part robust enough to withstand dropping. Our team of Structural and Mechanical analysts solve these problems through cross team collaboration. Our goal is to predict how our machines will behave in the hands of our owners.

Acoustics and Vibration

Our Acoustic and Vibration engineers are responsible for ensuring we meet the challenging acoustic requirements of our products without compromising performance.  Using a combination of test and acoustic simulation techniques our engineers embed best design practice and novel acoustic technologies into our products. Whether they are optimising the flow path through a product, designing a motor mounting, or tuning a Helmholtz resonator you’ll do it surrounded by a community of like-minded, talented engineers, with state-of-the-art test and simulation facilities at your disposal.


Dyson’s turbomachinery experts enable our Hyperdymium™ motors to deliver the most efficient aerodynamic design. We use advanced simulation techniques to stretch the limits of design and performance, while keeping high volume manufacturing in mind. Our team creates robust and cost-effective solutions that can be scaled effectively to deliver world leading technology that delights the owners of Dyson machines.


Dyson Hyperdymium™ motors have a world leading speed to power density ratio that enables our machines to deliver top class performance to our customers. Rotor dynamicists fine-tune our motor designs so they can be pushed to high speeds with minimum vibration and noise. The team optimises designs across a huge range of frequencies for smooth operation, so our owners get the best possible experience from their Dyson machines.

Data Science

Dyson’s data scientists and data engineers work on interdisciplinary projects to find and explore opportunities to connect physical sciences and machine learning. The team works on everything from large scale manufacturing data to data from small lab experiments. Creativity, curiosity, and innovative thinking enables us to apply new machine learning to help solve engineering problems. We are continually expanding and looking for people with a variety of skills, including data scientists, machine learning engineers, data engineers and data analysts that will enable us to widen our impact across the business.

Product Systems Engineering

Dyson’s Product Systems Engineers collaborate on early-stage product development to help project teams understand the problem we are striving to solve. Using true systems thinking and advanced modelling and simulation tools and languages, we help to crystalise product requirements and establish what the owners of Dyson machines want their machines to accomplish.

Advanced Measurement and Instrumentation

Measuring the real-world performance of our machines is a crucial part of our design process. It gives us new insights and helps improve the performance of our machines. Our multidisciplinary teams working in measurement and instrumentation use their software and hardware skills to create tools used by thousands of engineers across Dyson. They cover a spectrum including huge motor life test rigs, automated positioning rigs, pressure and temperature measurement units, custom software applications to enable laptop-testing and to run our sound chambers, advanced video analysis and cloud-enabled systems for collecting user data from global trials.
