Applidyne is always looking for talented mechanical, mechatronic and electronics engineers with a passion for innovation to join our team.

We welcome applicants from overseas, particularly those with UK, EU or US experience in high level R&D and design. The ability to work in Australia (relevant visa or residency status) is essential.

We offer unparalleled breadth and depth of engineering R&D projects for you to work on. You may be working on a control system for a scientific instrument one day and developing a lifting apparatus for carp traps in the Murray river the next. There is no danger of repetitive work.

To be a good fit at Applidyne you will be full of ideas. We understand that you will have plenty of ideas that you would like to develop in your spare time and to cater for this, Applidyne runs an Employee Initiated Developments Scheme where the company assists you with funding to do just that.
