£Comepetitive + bonus + pension + 27 days holiday
Dyson has an opportunity for power electronics engineers to join the highly successful Motors and Power Systems group. Opportunities are available at both Associate Principal Engineer and Technical Lead level depending on experience.
Sometimes, making a technological leap forward means going back to the beginning. Since 1999 we’ve spent £150 million building a motor from scratch. Small, light and efficient, yet extremely powerful our motors are what enable our technology to be different and it’s why they’re protected by 20 to 30 patents, but the next generation demands new directions in Energy storage, robotics, nanotechnology and space-age materials. Our multi-disciplinary team which is led by some of the world’s best power electronics engineers know that only the most pioneering thinking will do.
The Motors and Power Systems group is a multidisciplinary team responsible for the development of Dyson Digital Motors and Lithium Ion battery management. Dyson Digital Motors are small and light, yet extremely powerful; they power the next generation of handheld vacuum cleaners as well as the Supersonic which is revolutionising hair care. As part of this group, we are looking to expand our Power Electronics capability.
