Fluid Dynamics Engineer



To support RDD teams in the development of new products, specifically taking a lead role in the areas of fluid flow and thermal management, by imparting knowledge and best practice to Design Engineers. The successful candidate will be expected to identify and develop new opportunities/tools/methods with the aim of enhancing the performance, reliability and time to market of Dyson products.

Market Overview

Home to our global Research, Design and Development centre and all of our Commercial functions, Dyson HQ is tucked away in countryside famous for the railway tunnels and bridges of Isambard Brunel, who revolutionised modern engineering. Our secluded location helps us to protect our ideas and stay independent-minded. Yet nearby are the fashionable cities of Bristol and Bath (where a young James Dyson invented cyclone technology). The building is the heartbeat of Dyson. Over 1,500 people, including James himself, spend their days strategizing, inventing technology and telling the Dyson story to the world. From 2016, our HQ will begin doubling its footprint with an ambitious new expansion.

Function Overview

It takes real ingenuity to find new ways of doing things. Smarter technologies. Lighter, stronger materials. And quieter, cleaner power systems. Our Research & Science teams – scientists, mechanical engineers and specialists across each product category – are the experimenters and risk-takers behind Dyson problem-solving. Whether it’s in-house development, sourcing outside technology partners, or driving collaboration with partner universities, they lead the way in finding the next generation of Dyson technology. Which is why any one of them can find themselves presenting to James Dyson himself.


  • Provide advice and guidance to Design Managers and assembly teams on allocated projects, taking a lead role and responsibility for the areas of fluid flow and thermal management.
  • Support of this advice through experimental validation and other relevant analysis methods and tools (including CFD).
  • Build and maintain effective working relationships with design engineers at all levels, including the relevant technical teams in the Far East
  •  Ensuring detailed, accountable written records are kept with the aid of the PLM system (Siemens Teamcenter)


• A good first degree or Masters in Aeronautical or Mechanical Engineering (other relevant engineering disciplines will be considered).

• A good working knowledge of the fundamentals of thermodynamics and fluid dynamics.

• A good understanding of the principles and application of CFD methods. (Previous experience of ANSYS-Fluent and/or ANSYS-CFX beneficial, but not essential)

• A sound understanding of experimental methods and processes, particularly with regard to pressure, temperature and flow measurement techniques.

• A good working knowledge of commercial CAD tools, preferably Siemens NX.

• A good working knowledge of MS Office, especially Excel. • Good analytical ability and attention to detail.

• Ability to communicate appropriate, concise and accurate information in written and verbal format.

• Ability to adapt or generate imaginative and innovative ideas, in line with core Dyson values.

• To be able to multi-task and plan effectively when working with a variety of project teams in an often high-pressure, competitive environment.

• Excellent team-working skills

Benefits Overview

Dyson monitors the market to ensure competitive salaries and pension contributions. Beyond that, you’ll also enjoy a profit-related bonus, generous leave and life insurance. But financial benefits are only the start of a Dyson career. Rapid professional growth, leadership development and new opportunities abound, driven by regular reviews and dynamic workshops. And with a vibrant culture, flexible working hours, the latest devices and a relaxed dress code reflecting our engineering spirit, it’s an exciting team environment geared to creativity, innovation and ambition.
