The LEGO Group is hiring a new product designer

Fancy putting your building skills to use as a product designer for the LEGO Group? Now’s your chance, as the company has opened applications for a new role in its Extended Line team.

The LEGO Extended Line covers smaller sets that are typically exclusive to official retail channels, such as seasonal sets and BrickHeadz. While the successful candidate will be working primarily on those models, they’ll also have the chance to interact with and learn from wider product teams in Billund, the home of the brick.

To succeed, you’ll need an undergraduate degree in a design discipline (such as product design, graphic design or fashion design); at least two years of design experience; a keen understanding of colour and form; strong project management and communication skills; and proficiency in English.

Desirable (though not essential) qualities include experience in the toy industry or with brick-building toys, a desire to learn and a collaborative approach. Core responsibilities will involve designing new products based on briefs, coming up with new concepts and building on market research and audience insights.

Essentially: you’ll be building LEGO for a living. If you think you have what it takes, head over to the LEGO Careers page to apply.

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.
