Senior Electronics Hardware Engineer
£Competitive + 27 Days Holiday + Bonus + Pension
At Dyson we are encouraged to think differently, challenge convention and be unafraid to make mistakes. We’re creative, collaborative, practical and enthusiastic. But most of all we’re hugely passionate about what we do.
When you invent something, the right technology often doesn’t exist to make it work. So we make our own. From advanced systems, components and power supplies to building a digital motor from scratch, Dyson electronics engineers have enabled our 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.
The role involves design & development of electronics hardware for Dyson products. At Malmesbury we design all Dyson products from the early vacuum cleaners to the latest robots. Subsequently this role has opportunities to work on the whole Dyson product range, that’s all products that you see in the market place today and all products that are under research for future markets.
The responsibilities for this role will cover the following areas:
• Mentoring or leading a team/programmes
• Development of electronics hardware for consumer and commercial products
• Creation & management of hardware requirements specifications
• Circuit design, analysis and documentation
• Design verification and validation testing
• Research into technologies and circuit designs for new & existing product stream
• Pro-active adoption of good quality engineering practices within the Dyson framework.
The role will require a highly motivated, creative, methodical and flexible person ready to take on challenges with a pragmatic approach.
Knowledge in a combination of some of the following areas is beneficial:
• Knowledge of Triac/SCRs, IGBTs & FETs
• Power supply design
• Motor control (AC, DC, Brushless)
• Mains voltage referenced design experience
• Actuator drives.
Analogue & Digital Electronics:
• Amplifiers, Filters
• Sensor signal conditioning.
• Micro-controller interfacing.
• Serial interfaces: I2C, SPI, UART
• Microprocessors and high speed digital design.
• Circuit simulation & design tolerance analysis
• Circuit electrical and thermal rating analysis
• Design for high volume manufacture
• Robust design including FMEA techniques.
• Good quality engineering process understanding and appreciation.
