Description and Requirements

The Mechatronics Engineer will work with our world class product designers, electronics engineers and software specialists to design and develop mechatronic systems for our R&D projects. The role of the Mechatronics Engineer will be top secret, interesting and varied but he/she will typically split their time between a consumer product development project and design/implementation of automated test equipment. In either case they’ll be responsible for specifying, developing, testing, analysing and improving the important electro-mechanical systems that facilitate our new consumer products. The engineer will sit within our Mechatronics Engineering team and be an influential part of a highly creative and dynamic R&D department.

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.
