PCB Engineer


Senai, Johor


Dyson develops and manufactures complex electronics products requiring equally sophisticated, engineered PCBA design solutions. We need motivated PCB Engineers to meet the diverse challenges that delivering these solutions provide. Dyson RDD is vibrant, diverse, very challenging and always interesting; you automatically become a part of the design innovation and engineering that make Dyson the technology brand it is. If you’re a design engineer, it’s definitely the right place to be…

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. Located in the exhilarating industrial heart of Johor, it’s also home to RDD, IT, operations,  finance, creative and HR.

The RDD facility is central to our plans to launch 100 new machines in the next four years. To meet these ambitions, we recently expanded the site to 30,000m², with 50 advanced technology labs and 700 new engineers. In the Dyson world, there’s no more exciting place to be.

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.


Reporting to the SEA PCB Team lead, the successful candidate will become part of a busy ECAD team working for Electronics within Research Design and Development (RDD), generating integrated and robust PCB design solutions for an expanding Electronics group. Our growth is also reflected by increased product categories and design diversity; expanding our technology roadmaps, and driving us to deliver smarter solutions. Your work will encompass everything from early conceptual prototypes to mass production design, with a wide diversity of PCB technologies and requirements.


The ideal candidate will be able to display a sound understanding of PCB design techniques, technology and CAD principles. You will have a proven track record of creating robust, reliable high-quality designs; accurately and consistently. You must be motivated, and keen to support PCB design related activities when required. Dyson engineers are many things; you must be able to provide solutions where you identify problems, be pro-active, and innovative. You should enjoy being challenged, adapt to change, function within a team, but also work independently as required.

To meet these expectations we encourage our engineers to grow and expand their own capabilities, encouraging career development through training, experience and promotion; Dyson provides plenty of opportunities for motivated individuals to break through their own boundaries, to excel and drive their careers forward.
