"I was a student before I joined the LEGO Group. I came as an intern for a year, before returning to university to finish my degree. I was hired shortly before I graduated and now work on LEGO Friends."
"I was toy designer in a Spanish toy company for five years before joining the LEGO Group. I didn´t start here as a design manager. I was a Designer. But what attracted me were the amazing values that the LEGO Group has and the fact that we put the user at the centre of everything we do. I now work in the LEGO Friends team."
"I started my career as a motorcycle designer at Honda HRE-D in Italy. Then I got an opportunity to work at Triumph Motorcycle in the UK. And now I’ve been at the LEGO Group for 5 years and work in LEGO Technic team."
As a Senior Concept Designer in Creative Play Lab, I develop new play experiences, products, and services. I was attracted to this role because of the challenges it offered to explore new areas and opportunity spaces for the LEGO Group. I was excited by the chance to start an idea from scratch as well as the possibility to innovate and make a positive change.
