About us

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.

Dyson offers a unique opportunity for talented individuals to invent, design and develop market leading products for the global market. By working in our world-class research, design and development (RDD) department, these individuals have the opportunity to work alongside leading technical specialists and highly motivated creative people to create products which fulfil our ambition of being truly different and better than our competitors.

About the role

This is a fantastic opportunity for Structural Analysis Engineer to work within a team of like-minded engineering problem solvers within our Research, Design and Development department. The successful candidate will be responsible for highlighting and solving the structural and mechanical issues on our products using a combination of analytical methods, materials testing, measurement and simulation. The problems you will be solving often have no precedent, so curiosity to learn and explore new concepts is a must.

Key responsibilities:
  • Supporting new product development by identifying and resolving structural and mechanical issues
  • Use of FEA software to explore and implement design improvements
  • Use of hand calculations and experimental methods to validate results and substantiate engineering decisions
  • Pro-actively resolving critical reliability, manufacturing and product safety issues
  • Investigating new analysis and experimental techniques, improving model validation, accuracy and speed.
  • Present progress and status of allocated projects to upper management.
  • Represent the structural analysis team at project cross-team meetings.
  • Build and maintain effective working relationships with engineers at all levels, including the relevant technical teams in the Far East.

About you

  • A degree in mechanical engineering or related discipline
  • Ability to breakdown complex mechanical problems into their fundamental components.
  • Competence in the use and application of CAE tools to assist design development (Experience in ANSYS Mechanical, LS-DYNA, Siemens NX and Moldflow is beneficial but not essential)
  • Experience in a range of specialist analysis techniques, such as static structural simulation, harmonic response, implicit and explicit dynamics, thermal and injection moulding simulation.
  • In depth knowledge of mechanical properties, failure mechanisms and processing of common engineering materials.
  • Ability to concisely communicate complex analytical results to designers, senior management, and engineering teams across our locations
  • The proven ability to work as part of a team or un-supervised to an agreed goal or set of deliverables.
  • Ability to adapt or generate imaginative and innovative ideas, in line with core Dyson values
