Dream job alert: the LEGO Group is hiring a new designer

If your dream job involves designing LEGO Technic sets, it’s time to brush off your CV, because the LEGO Group is hiring.

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.)

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
