Electronic Systems Engineers - automotive

Negotiable depending on experience

Malmesbury

Description

As part of Dyson's newly announced electric vehicle programme we are looking at expanding our electronics systems engineering team at all levels.

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. 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.

Function Overview

In 1988 James Dyson read a paper by the US National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, linking the exhaust from diesel engines to premature death in laboratory mice and rats. In March 1990 a team at Dyson began work on a cyclonic filter that could be fitted on a vehicle’s exhaust system to trap particulates. By 1993 we had developed several working prototypes and showed an early iteration to British television programme Blue Peter. The team went on to develop a much more sophisticated technology.
 
To our chagrin, nobody at the time was interested in employing our diesel exhaust capture system and we stopped the project. The industry said that ‘disposing’ of the collected soot was too much of a problem.
 
In the period since, people around the world have been encouraged to adopt ‘clean diesel’ engines through subsidies and grants. As a result, developed and developing cities are full of smog-belching cars, lorries and buses. It is a problem that others are ignoring.
 
Throughout, it has remained Dyson's ambition to find a solution to the global problem of air pollution. Some years ago, observing that automotive firms were not changing their spots, James committed the company to develop new battery technologies. He believed that electrically powered vehicles would solve the vehicle pollution problem. Dyson carried on innovating. The latest digital motors and energy storage systems power the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer and cord-free vacuum line. We’ve relentlessly innovated in fluid dynamics and HVAC systems to build our fans, heaters and purifiers.
 
At this moment, we finally have the opportunity to bring all our technologies together into a single product. Rather than filtering emissions at the exhaust pipe, today we have the ability to solve it at the source. So, Dyson has begun work on a battery electric vehicle, due to be launched by 2020.

We’ve started building an exceptional team that combines top Dyson engineers with talented individuals from the automotive industry. The team is already over 400 strong, and we are recruiting aggressively.

Accountabilities

Dyson is renowned for challenging the norm, disrupting commonly accepted trends and revolutionizing products. Our electric vehicle project is no different; we are going to be releasing something radically different. Are you interested in helping to shape the design of this cutting edge vehicle?


Electronics System Engineer in this role provides technical support on the primary system and the major subsystems development to our stakeholders and suppliers.
It is expected to have a proven record in developing, modelling and maintaining complex systems and process/ framework to meet demanding stakeholder’s needs, making use of new technologies and methodologies to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of our products.
The ideal candidate will have project engineering related experience, excellent System Engineering knowledge and skills, excellent IT skills.
 
This is what we need you to do...
 1.Requirement Development and Maintenance from Stakeholders Level to Subsystem Level and manage the traceability
2.Promote Model Based System Engineering (MBSE) for the project
3.Support Design and Solution Reviews to ensure Design proposals take into account existing Constraints
4.FMEA Development and Reviews
5.Coordination with all other disciplines (research, product design, mechanical design, UX/UI)
6.Modelling  and analysis of the product and sub systems using SysML modelling tools
7.Writing system test procedures to verify product level requirements
8.Functional Safety Analysis
9.Support Trade Studies and Identification and Assessment of the Risks
10.Support or carry out the technical evaluation of suppliers and contactors.
11.Support Verification and Validation
12.Support Decomposition of the system requirements into hardware and software requirements
13.Support technical gate reviews
14.Support process development
15.Able to work in a dynamic and fast pacing environments with a Can Do attitude (no challenge is too difficult)
16.Hands on
17.Start-up mentality, dynamic, independent
