Engineering Manager

SGD Competitive Remuneration Package



Dyson RDD develop products which 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. Our Product development team embody our machines and design for manufacture. We break down a complex engineering problem into digestible chunks: clarifying our products requirements, testing their functions, robustness, behaviour and structural architecture. The breadth of knowledge of our engineers, and their depth of knowledge of our technologies, allows them to question the solutions from any team, finding and resolving risks before they become issues. The Engineering Managers’ principle objectives are to develop world class engineering knowledge within their discipline and to build well established teams of experts that apply their knowledge effectively to the design of Dyson products.

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

When you invent something, the right technology to support it often doesn’t exist. So we make our own. From advanced systems, components and power supplies to building a digital motor from scratch, Dyson electronics engineers have enabled Dyson ideas to become reality. As our future products rely more on robotics, connectivity, and complex sensing and navigation technologies, our high speed electronics will stand us apart. From designing the hardware to the systems that make Dyson machines as reliable as they are intelligent, our electronics engineers are central to our most pioneering RDD.


This is what we need you to do…

  • Delivery of Product Assemblies: All relevant assemblies must be delivered to the Design Manager on time, on spec and on cost.
  • Resolution of Current Product Safety, Reliability & Quality Issues: Appropriate resource must be allocated from the relevant assembly or technical area as and when issues arise. The resulting learning must be used to drive continuous improvement and increasing knowledge within the team.
  • Continuous Improvement: A key element of the assembly based structure is the retention and development of knowledge. This increasing knowledge must be used to drive increased performance, reduced development timescales, increased reliability and reduced product cost whenever possible.
  • Communication: Strong communication links must be developed with both the Design Managers and the other Engineering Managers to ensure problems are discussed in an open and mature fashion and a consistent, collaborative approach is applied to all elements of product integration.
  • Balance Innovation with Historical Success: Engineering managers should identify the most appropriate usage of existing parts and assemblies in future projects. This will ensure that product innovation is managed where it adds the most value and is balanced against the benefits of reduced investment costs, reduced timelines, reduced risk and increased reliability. A key measure of success is to avoid our past mistakes of ‘reinventing the wheel’.
  • Resource Management: Within each team the manager must ensure that all of the technical issues are well matched to the capability of the individuals within their team.
  • Pre Project Transfer Support: Managers must take a proactive approach to project status in the run up to project transfer. This will consist of highlighting relevant individuals able to travel to UK during this time as well as a heightened communication approach with UK counterparts.
  • Project Transfer: At the point of project transfer, ensure that all deliverables have been validated and the design intent has been clearly documented and communicated to the relevant individuals in the Far East by the UK.
  • Professional Development & Mentoring: Each manager is responsible for the professional development of all individuals within their team. Monthly meetings to discuss individual’s careers, technical and personal aspirations should be commonplace and the focus must be on development rather than the immediacy of project delivery. Clear, achievable development and learning options should be identified and followed through to completion.
  • Reporting: Each manager is responsible for clear communication of assembly and project status, ensuring the relevant risks and priorities are clearly communicated to the Design Managers and upwards.
  • At least 5 years of technical work experience; must have the experience of successfully leading and managing at least one complete project (for electromechanical devices) starting from design, prototyping through to mass manufacturing.
