Play your part in our team succeeding

Internal Processing within the LEGO Group has the mission to engineer and develop robust solutions for our internal manufacturing sites. Parts External Manufacturing within the LEGO Group (PEM) has the mission to design/engineer, source, plan and deliver new parts in expected quality through global 3rd party design & manufacturing network partners. This role will play a crucial part in the strong collaboration between the two areas to be able to find the most optimal sourcing route.

Over the last years the LEGO Group has been enhancing its play experience with the digital component. The digital component introduces the LEGO Group to new competence domains as physical network connectivity and eco systems, software management and application development. We work with specific electronics contract manufacturers (EMS) in Asia and Europe, trying to re-scope the responsibilities of product development versus process development, where the last one will be fully integrated within the contract manufacturer.

The LEGO Group is therefor looking for a Senior Director of the Global Electronics Engineering department who will, together with his team, take responsibility for the process development over all projects hereby using the full accountability of the EMS partners in Asia and Europe. Over time we want to build up internal manufacturing compentences as well, so this is also an important part of the responsibility area.

Do you have what it takes?

The ideal candidate holds a Master Degree in engineering (electronics or mechatronics) and has a demonstrated working experience of 15 years plus in managing complex engineering projects. In addition we expect that you have:

• Experience working on projects in the automation industry (medical, automation, consumer) with high level of design process milestone management.
• Solid knowledge of DfX methodology (mainly DFM), deep understanding of electronics testplatforms and IPC industry.
• In depth working experience with EMS partners, in particular in joint development of process technologies (DFM), launch of projects (NPI) and yield optimizations.
• Solid leadership experience in a high technical environment.
• Either high interest in setting up an internal production setup or even more preffereble already have experience within this field.

As a person you have strong interpersonal and communication skills with multicultural experience (Asia, Europe) You are fluent in English and used to interact with and present to customers and senior internal and external stakeholders. This role will also require:

• An innovative and strategic mindset with a driven and action-oriented approach.
• A leadership style that empowers motivation and feedback.
• The ability to adjust to change in a positive way.
• Strong result orientation: strives to deliver consistently.
• Effective collaboration skills - effectively & openly engages with colleagues.
• Willingness to travel for business to Hungary, Asia, but also London/Denmark – depending on where you choose to live.
For this role you can live in DK, UK or Hungary but the role requires geographical flexibility since the first two years of the assignment will be with primary work location in Hungary - close to the EMS manufacturing supplier, during the development and ramp up phase. You will be able to commute to Hungary for the first two years and then afterwards your work base will be in Billund – DK, where future R&D development for internal production setup will take place.
