Drive Engineer




Participate in the research, design and development of Dyson new products from the evaluation of new technologies (drives mechanism) till the implementation of the final product.


Market Overview

In 2000, Dyson moved production from Malmesbury to Malaysia to be closer to our supply chains and open up international growth. The small team of 10 has now grown to almost 1,200 – forming Dyson’s second biggest global hub. Located in the exhilarating industrial heart of Johor, it’s also home to RDD, IT, operations,  finance, creative and HR.

The RDD facility is central to our plans to launch 100 new machines in the next four years. To meet these ambitions, we recently expanded the site to 30,000m², with 50 advanced technology labs and 700 new engineers. In the Dyson world, there’s no more exciting place to be.


Function Overview

Our Design engineering team is the idea factory of Dyson. It’s where we took the bag out of the vacuum. The blades out of a fan. And the heat out of hand dryers. With free-flowing curiosity and creativity, ideas are never in short supply. The key is deciding which ones could change the world and which should, for now, be shelved. This is done by the New Product Innovation team, who pass on the best ideas to New Product Development. Sketching, prototyping, testing, failing and refining follow. It can take months, even years. But those ideas that make it are big. The ones that transform markets.


Work closely with project team engineers to set up machine and test rig for development testing, monitor and analyze test result as well as further improve the drives mechanism.

Oversee performance validation testing and provide improvement or solution as well as implement them into the drives mechanism design.

Ensure Dyson new products (especially drives mechanism) satisfy the targeted performance specification.
