Senior Mechatronics Engineer
Senai, Johor Bahru, Malaysia
The Senior Mechatronics Engineer will work with our world class product designers, electronics engineers and software specialists to develop and integrate mechatronic systems into our R&D projects. The role of the Mechatronics Engineer will be top secret, interesting and varied but he/she will typically be assigned to a development project and they’ll be responsible for specifying, developing, testing, analysing and improving important electro-mechanical systems within our new consumer products. The engineer will sit within our Mechatronics Engineering team and be an influential part of a highly creative and dynamic R&D department
In 2000, Dyson moved production from Malmesbury to Malaysia to be closer to our supply chains and open up international growth. The small team of 10 has now grown to almost 1,200 – forming Dyson’s second biggest global hub. Located in the exhilarating industrial heart of Johor, it’s also home to RDD, IT, operations, finance, creative and HR.
The RDD facility is central to our plans to launch 100 new machines in the next four years. To meet these ambitions, we recently expanded the site to 30,000m², with 50 advanced technology labs and 700 new engineers. In the Dyson world, there’s no more exciting place to be.
