These open calls for new designers don’t come around often – the LEGO Group’s staff turnover is unsurprisingly low – so if you feel ready to fulfil those deep-seated childhood ambitions of playing with LEGO for a living, hop on over to the careers page and apply now.
The successful candidate will be based in Billund, Denmark, alongside a team of more than 300 LEGO designers. To apply, you’ll need to submit a cover letter (which the LEGO Group calls a ‘motivational letter’, for some reason), a CV and a portfolio showcasing your previous design work (and/or Technic builds).
There are specific requirements for applicants, however. For instance, you’ll need a degree (or other formal education) in a relevant discipline, such as product design or mechanical engineering; communication and time management skills; an understanding of the Technic system; an ‘aesthetic talent’ (knowing what looks good, basically); and a healthy relationship with your inner child.
If we’ve just described you to a tee, click through to the careers page and get applying. And if you do land the job as a result of us telling you about it, we’ll accept compensation in the form of juicy LEGO rumours. (Kidding, LEGO Group. We’re kidding.)
