You will join a team of material scientists, electrochemists, mechanical and electronic engineers at Dyson’s Malmesbury Research campus. To meet Dyson’s growing energy storage requirements, your focus will be the hands-on development and optimisation of manufacturing processes for materials and components for cells and batteries. In this role you will have access to the latest technologies from around the world and help develop the next generation of batteries. You will be part of a multi-disciplinary team and have opportunity to develop capabilities across a range of materials processing, cell assembly and characterisation techniques.
- Use a combination of practical experience, creative thinking and continuous improvement methods, to define, specify, implement, optimize and exploit both novel and established processes that will enable prototype cells and their components, on time and according to specific project objectives.
- Work within a multidisciplinary team, including researchers and the manufacturing function, to contribute to the development of production processes, enabling transfer from materials research through scaled-up prototypes to manufacturing using automated and semi-automated pilot equipment.
- Gain a clear understanding of Dyson’s Energy Storage Requirements and apply your knowledge to optimize manufacturing processes for custom components in our cells, enabling the next generation of our products.
- Execute work supporting process understanding and robustness: from optimization of existing methods, to evaluation, validation and optimization of alternative methods, to defining critical process indicators and implementing inline quality controls, to continuous improvement and the introduction of novel techniques to further process understanding and effectiveness.
- Practical experience of handling hazardous materials and use of protective equipment.
- Experience of developing and working to standard operating procedures (SOP) in a research or manufacturing environment.
- Problem solving, analytical, attention to detail. An ability to identify problems and find solutions, providing examples of continuous improvement activity.
- Good understanding of and compliance with health, safety and environmental standards within a chemical and/or hazmat environment.
Qualification & Experience:
- Relevant industrial experience. For example, a background in the battery, electronics, plastics, food, fine chemical, pharmaceutical industries.
- Practical experience of manufacturing and/or process development.
- Practical experience of validating and maintaining automated and semi-automated manufacturing equipment, including problem solving and troubleshooting.
- Degree qualified (or min equivalent experience) in a chemical, physical science or engineering discipline relevant to contemporary manufacturing.
- Experience working in a quality-driven research or manufacturing environment, using quality and traceability systems and maintaining auditable activity and/or batch records.
