Acoustics and Vibration Engineer, Graduate Program




We’re looking for the next generation of creative problem-solvers; as a graduate engineer at Dyson you’ll be using your technical and creative skills from day one to help us develop revolutionary new technologies. Dyson opened its new Singapore Technology Centre earlier this year. In this ambitious, top secret centre, some of the world’s brightest engineering minds continually push the boundaries of science & technology.

Market Overview

Our Singapore story began in 2004 and today we have more than 1000 people working here. At the beginning of 2017 we opened our new, state of the art, Singapore Technology Centre in Science Park I, minutes from Singapore’s technology and start-up community. This new Technology Centre houses some of Dyson’s most advanced facilities including Robotics and Sensors laboratories and Smart Home, Connectivity & Mobile Applications laboratories as well as an Advanced Control Tower with the latest technology to develop its analytics driven activities. Not too far away is West Park, our flagship advanced motor manufacturing facility where we develop our autonomous robotic manufacturing capabilities – more than 300 robots assemble our Dyson Digital Motor (DDM) here. It is here that we develop our next generation of motor technology.

Function Overview

RDD is the heart of Dyson. It’s where we invent technology that solves problems. Our engineers challenge convention, build, test, fail, refine, fail again. To be different takes courage as well as creativity. At Dyson we are encouraged to think differently, challenge convention and be unafraid to make mistakes. We’re creative, collaborative, practical and enthusiastic. But most of all we’re hugely passionate about what we do. At the heart of Dyson is Research, Design and Development (RDD) - 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.



• Holds responsibility to deliver to assigned projects in area of Acoustic and Vibration Analysis.
• Manage acoustic and vibration performance of products through effective use and ownership of Product Specification. 
• Drive designs forward and ensure correct decisions are made at all stages of the design process through experimental validation, simulation, calculation, or any other relevant analysis methods.
• Manage related technical risk actively and provide mitigations as needed. Ensure timely closure of risk items (ie. FMEA) according to project development maturity.
• Resolve Problem Reports (FRACAS) in timely manner.
• Drive cross-project initiative leading to technical insights for more accurate and faster issue resolution.
• Provide technical oversight and coaching to junior members of team

Problem Solving:

• Expected to resolve problems within project effectively while managing stakeholders’ expectations, in a fast-paced and result-oriented environment.
• Find the mitigations of issue(s) through systematic and thorough analysis, present findings to the cross-functional team to drive towards timely and elegant solution.  


• Support departmental goals and long term technology road map. Plan and manage progress of actions, in order to deliver on time.
• Provide inputs to team goal setting.

Continuous Improvement:

• Expected to proactively identify areas of improvement and to propose and implement improvements.
• Identify and develop new opportunities/tools/methods with the aim of enhancing the performance, reliability, and time to market of Dyson products.
• Actively contributes to lessons learnt database to ensure sharing of past learnings.
• Continually seeks to improve technical capability to support the business growth.


• At least a Bachelor degree in Acoustic/Physics/Mechanical/Mechatronics engineering or equivalent, preferred applicants to have a Master degree.
• A basic understanding of noise generation and attenuation, structural modal/harmonic analysis, rotordynamics, signal processing, and statistical analysis. Working experience with Fluid Dynamics and Failure Analysis would be an added advantage.
• Proficiency on measurement hardware and software for data acquisition, such as B&K Pulse, HEAD Acoustics, MATLAB, Simulink/Simscape, and LabVIEW is preferred.
• Competent in the use and application of CAD/CAE tools in general. Experience in the ANSYS/ACTRAN/COMSOL is preferred.
• Proficient in Six Sigma methodologies, and having strong statistical data analysis using tool such as Minitab is preferred.

Technical and problem solving skills
• Ability to gather information systematically to establish facts and principles required to solve complex problems within the project.
• Demonstrate ability to provide independent viewpoints/argument to a problem, and ability to provide technical path forward.
• Able to utilize root cause analysis techniques during problem solving.
• Ability to plan ahead and prioritise task, coordinate the work of others.
• Able to identify technical risks within projects. Expected to suggest specific actions to mitigate risks. Able to lead FMEA sessions.

Interpersonal skills:
• Demonstrate strong written and verbal communication skills in English.
• Ability to receive constructive feedback and coaching, and respond appropriately. Able to provide constructive feedback.
• Proficiently communicate ideas and concepts, ability to tailor communication to suite different levels, and to persuade and influence others as needed.

Benefits Overview

Professional growth, leadership development and new opportunities abound, driven by regular reviews and dynamic workshops. And with a vibrant culture, the latest devices and a relaxed dress code reflecting our engineering spirit, it’s an exciting team environment geared to fuelling and realising ambition.
