Electronics & Robotics Engineer, Graduate Program




Taking electronics and power systems into unchartered territory is our future. Join us and you’ll have the chance to play your part in it, applying creative thinking and using your electronics and engineering skills to shape the smart technology of tomorrow.

Market Overview

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.

Function Overview

Sometimes, making a technological leap forward means going back to the beginning. Since 1999, we’ve spent £150m building a motor from scratch – small, light and efficient, yet extremely powerful. Our motors are what enable our technology to be different – it’s why they’re protected by 20 to 30 patents. But the next generation demands new directions. Energy storage, robotics, nanotechnology and space-age materials. So our multi-disciplinary team, led by some of the world’s best power electronics engineers, knows that only the most pioneering thinking will do. That’s the Dyson way.


As a graduate engineer at Dyson you’ll be using your technical and creative skills from day one to help us develop revolutionary new technologies. That means working in our high security offices, alongside experts in your field, using cutting edge machinery. But innovation isn’t easy. All of our engineers will be required to:

•Develop technical solutions for new & existing product streams for large volume manufacture.

•Create & manage requirements / specifications.

•Verify & validate solutions against requirements.

•Pro-actively adopt good quality engineering practices within the Dyson framework.

•Work in a dynamic environment across multiple technical areas with changing scope and priorities.

Depending on your area of expertise (hardware, software or systems) other accountabilities may include:

•Circuit design, analysis and documentation.

•Data capture, data analysis, and modelling of complex consumer products.

•Algorithm selection, optimisation, and calibration.

•Software design, implementation, testing and integration in the embedded, app and server domains.

•Developing systems requirements, architectures, and behaviours with key stakeholders.

•Building and testing prototype electronics

We’ll support you with a full induction programme, learning about Dyson’s global business, meeting senior stakeholders and networking with your new colleagues. Technical induction follows to provide understanding of processes, technologies and safety; setting you up to contribute fully in your role. Beyond this you’ll be supported by an ongoing development programme making sure you have a breadth of exposure – to our Engineering departments and Dyson as a whole.


The Graduate Programme is competitive so you’ll need to be academically strong and have the right to work in the country of your application. You’ll be studying a technical degree, such as: electrical/electronic engineering discipline with a demonstrable passion for technology. You’ll need to show practical, hands-on application of your academic knowledge through either your own projects or extra-curricular activities. As you’ll be contributing to live projects from the start you’ll need to be curious, hungry to learn and ready to get stuck in. A creative flair for problem solving is a must. Above all, you’ll want to play a key part in bringing the next generation of Dyson technology to the world.

Benefits Overview

Dyson Malaysia monitors the market to ensure we offer competitive salaries, management bonuses and pension contributions. Beyond that, you’ll enjoy generous leave and medical care and insurance. But financial benefits are only the start of a career at Dyson. Leadership support and new opportunities abound, driven by regular dialogue and international training. And with a vibrant culture, the latest devices and a relaxed dress code reflecting our engineering spirit, it’s an exciting team environment geared to progress, innovation and realising ambition
