Noise and Vibration Engineer


Malmesbury, UK


  • At Dyson we are constantly innovating and evolving our technologies for the products of tomorrow. Engineering great sounding products is central to what we do, and to support this we are growing our team of noise and vibration engineers. 
  • You will develop emerging acoustic technologies and direct their integration into new Dyson products. 
  • You will use and develop a variety of analysis, simulation and experimental methods to contribute to product acoustic innovation. 
  •  The role would suit an engineer with a noise and vibration background. All levels of experience will be considered, from graduate through to a more experienced engineer.

Market Overview

Dyson HQ is home to over 3,500 people who work across a medley of engineering and commercial functions. The award-winning campus has three cafes, a sports centre and a number of engineering icons including our Harrier and Lightning jets – one of which hangs from the ceiling of our café. Based in Malmesbury, the campus is within easy reach of both the Cotswolds and cities like Bath and Bristol along the M4 corridor.

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 of 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, we lead the way in finding the next generation of Dyson technology. Which is why anyone can find themselves presenting to James Dyson himself.
