Project Manager - Motors & Power Systems
£ competitive + bonus +27 days holiday + pension
The project integration manager will lead a multi-discipline team of engineers to deliver a number of the key new technologies within future Dyson M&PS products. They will be the key figure in driving the successful delivery of the performance, cost and time specification of their projects. The role requires significant technical understanding with the incumbent needing to be able to understand and communicate the project’s status, risk and technical progress to senior management, whilst interacting with engineers to strike a balance of risk and reward on solutions
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. Nearly 2,000 people, including James himself, spend their days strategizing, inventing technology and telling the Dyson story to the world. In 2017, our HQ will double its footprint with an ambitious new expansion.
Sometimes, making a technological leap forward means going back to the beginning. Since 1999, we’ve spent £150m building a motor from scratch – small, light and efficient, yet extremely powerful. Our motors are what enable our technology to be different – it’s why they’re protected by 20 to 30 patents. But the next generation demands new directions. Energy storage, robotics, nanotechnology and space-age materials. So our multi-disciplinary team, led by some of the world’s best power electronics engineers, knows that only the most pioneering thinking will do
