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

It’s one thing to solve a problem that’ll change technology forever. But turning that idea into a reality takes solving many more problems – and success is ultimately measured, not by the thinking, but by the product. Our Manufacturing department supports over 1,000 Dyson engineers worldwide turning ideas into groundbreaking technology. Involved early in the design, we identify materials, pre-empt production issues and find ways to build more efficiently. Yet robustly. From designing the machines, to the machines that build the machines, we’re helping to shape the future of technology.


  • Minimise equipment downtime with Best-In-Class indices for OEE, MTBF, Yield, etc.
  • Execute effective PM & production line support.
  • Develop a competent technical support team & minimize reliance on equipment suppliers technical support.


  • Degree in Mechanical/Mechatronics Engineering discipline.
  • Minimum 3 - 5 years working experience in the field of Automation and Equipment Engineering 
  • Proficiency in automated equipment troubleshooting techniques and preventive maintenance methodology 
  • Good knowledge of mechanical, pneumatic and electrical systems 
  • Experience with servo motors, pneumatics, Staubli robots, Siemens PLC, Labview software will be an advantage.
  • Ability to read and understand mechanical blueprints and electronic schematics 
  • Strong problem-solving & analytical skills with good knowledge in Cpk & statistics.
  • Good leadership/presentation/communication/team building skills.
  • Self motivated, hands on and good team player 
  • Ability to work under pressure.
  • Demonstrated ability to work proactively and to identify issues and propose solutions.
  • Demonstrated ability to design and implement effective systems, processes and information/reporting mechanisms. 
  • Experience in tool design and CAD drawing will be added advantage

Benefits Overview

Dyson Singapore monitors the market to make sure we offer competitive salaries and bonuses. Beyond that, you’ll enjoy comprehensive medical care and insurance, and shift and transport allowances. But financial benefits are just the start of a Dyson career. Professional growth, leadership development and new opportunities abound, driven by regular reviews and voluntary workshops. And with a vibrant culture, the latest devices and a relaxed dress code reflecting our creative engineering spirit, it’s an exciting team environment geared to fuelling and realising ambition
