Senior Design Engineer - Motors

Competitive

Malmesbury

Description

We are looking for Senior Design Engineers to work within our Motors design team to develop innovative new motor technologies that meet or exceed our aspirations, enhancing the company’s technical advantage in its new products. Our Senior Design Engineers lead teams and develop motors from initial inception through to manufacture.

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

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.

Accountabilities

• Be responsible for delivering parts, assemblies and systems from concept to production. Lead other engineering colleagues as required to support this.

• Own engineering development plans and progress for both your work and for those you lead; report to technical management on risks, timescales and technical issues.

• Deliver designs that meet specification requirements and that are optimised for low cost, high volume manufacturing.

• Develop 3D CAD and engineering drawings for mechanical and electrical components and assemblies. Review and approve work completed by others.

• Concept, develop and detail ideas for future motor parts and layouts.

• Understand and apply engineering analysis tools such as FEA and hand calculations to develop concepts and validate designs.

• Work with other project team engineers to ensure product performance, reliability and cost expectations are met. Demonstrate system level leadership to optimise product performance and solve complex engineering problems.

• Challenge and develop Dyson engineering practices to continuously improve efficiency.

• Demonstrate clear presentation of technical information and supporting documentation to ensure accurate hand over either to other teams within the UK or Far East.

Skills

Essential:

• A creative and agile mind, and a desire to develop your design and development skills in a fast pace environment.
