Dyson Overview

1.(Global business – number of people, countries, offices, machines sold, expansion, bigger, better)

Things move quickly at Dyson. In twenty years, what began with one man and one idea has grown into a global technology company, with 6,000 people and a presence in over 70 countries. From Malmesbury to Malaysia to the US to Australasia and many countries in between, we’ve sold over 80 million machines.

And it’s just the start. From 2016 our Malmesbury HQ is doubling its footprint. The US, our biggest market, is doubling their sales scope. And new frontiers are opening up across South East Asia and beyond. More people, more ideas and more space for more invention. The next four years will be our biggest and busiest yet.


2.(JD story – one man and an idea, where it all began, still leads the business today, family owned)

Not many global technology companies can say they’re still led by the founder. But we can. The same man who invented the first bagless vacuum, who persevered for 15 years to sell his idea, then took on Hoover when they stole it. And the same man who, as our Chief Engineer, has personally overseen every Dyson invention since.

James Dyson still defines the spirit of Dyson today. His entrepreneurial edge and tenacity guide our fighting spirit. Still family owned, we’re fiercely independent. Who we are and what we invent is down to us, and us alone. And we remain committed to keeping it this way.

3.(Multiple categories – from vacuums to global technology business, the new product categories we’ve entered, our own motor, four categories to come by 2020)

Much has changed since James Dyson launched the bagless vacuum that started our business. In the time since, Dyson engineers have invented heat-free hand dryers, bladeless fans, long-life LED lighting and even our own digital motor.

Today, vacuums represent just half of our sales. And Dyson has even broader ambitions still. With a future technology pipeline spanning 25 years, the next few are set to be our busiest yet. 3,000 new people. 100 new machines. And four brand new product categories by 2020. So get ready for the next big thing.


4. (Problem solvers – our approach to engineering, we see problems and engineer better solutions, transplanting technologies for new purposes)

Why put up with vacuum bags that diminish suction? Why labour drying hands with slow, energy-hungry machines? Why should fans use blades or lightbulbs fail so fast? There’s always a better way. And at Dyson, our mission is to find it. Solving old problems with new thinking, to invent machines that work better.

But innovation isn’t easy. Our engineers experiment relentlessly, persevere through failure, and search for answers in unlikely places. And, to put the technology they invent into our owners’ hands, Dyson commercial people do exactly the same. Defying convention. From source, to shop.

Market Overview

Our Singapore story began in 2004 and today we have more than 1000 people working here. At the beginning of 2017 we opened our new, state of the art, Singapore Technology Centre in Science Park I, minutes from Singapore’s technology and start-up community. This new Technology Centre houses some of Dyson’s most advanced facilities including Robotics and Sensors laboratories and Smart Home, Connectivity & Mobile Applications laboratories as well as an Advanced Control Tower with the latest technology to develop its analytics-driven activities.

Not too far away is West Park, our flagship advanced motor manufacturing facility where we develop our autonomous robotic manufacturing capabilities – more than 300 robots assemble our Dyson Digital Motor (DDM) here. It is here that we develop our next generation of motor technology.                           

Function Overview

Our design engineering team is the idea factory of Dyson. It’s where we took the bag out of the vacuum. The blades out of a fan. And the heat out of hand dryers. With free-flowing curiosity and creativity, ideas are never in short supply. The key is deciding which ones could change the world and which should, for now, be shelved. This is done by the New Product Innovation team, who pass on the best ideas to New Product Development. Sketching, prototyping, testing, failing and refining follow. It can take months, even years. But those ideas that make it are big – the kind that transform markets.

Accountabilities

  • Manage technical risk (Aerodynamics and Thermal) in projects. Work within a project team to deliver new products.

  • Drive designs forward and ensure correct decisions are made at all stages of the design process through experimental validation and other relevant analysis methods

  • Provide and co-ordinate analytical support to new and existing products.

  • Deliver concise accurate results - these maybe as a result of a computational simulation, a hand calculation or an experimental test.

  • Analyze test results, summarize and communicate to other members of RDD including senior mangers and directors.

  • Liaise with development teams to ensure an effective transfer of technology into our product range.

  • Provide production support to Operations team.

  • Promote best practice in Aerodynamics and Thermal design

  • Identify and develop new opportunities/tools/methods with the aim of enhancing the performance, reliability and time to market of Dyson products.

Skills

  • At least a Bachelor degree in aeronautical/mechanical engineering or equivalent, preferred applicants have a Master degree.

  • Two years of experience in mechanical product design & development. .

  • A good working knowledge of fundamental aerodynamics, and thermodynamics. Experience with hands-on testing is (eg. wind-tunnel, thermal measurement) preferred.

  • A good understanding of the principles and application of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). Experience with commercial CFD software package (eg. ANSYS Fluent) is essential.

  • Competence in the use and application of CAD/CAE tools in general but specifically the UG, SOLIDWORKS and ANSYS suite of products.

  • Experience in hardware and software for measurement and data acquisition (e.g. National Instruments  modules, MATLAB, Labview etc.) is preferred.

  • Communication: Excellent communication skills, both written and especially oral at a technical level.

  • Initiative and be proactivity: Able to pre-empt problems and seize opportunities without waiting to be told.

  • Drive for results: Focuses on expedient delivery, to the right level of resolution and quality.

  • Concern for accuracy: Consistently delivers the required level of accuracy and quality.

  • Attitude: Takes job responsibilities seriously, and conducts themselves in a positive and professional manner

  • Planning and Organizing: Able to develop clear, efficient and logical approaches to work
