Would you like to apply your 3D CAD knowledge and great collaboration skills to help shape elements that will ensure great play experiences for children world-wide? Then grab the opportunity to join an innovative project environment where we explore technical solutions for exciting new products.

Explore, qualify and validate technical opportunities for new innovative LEGO® elements

In the role as a mechanical engineer, you join 9 colleagues in the Part Design Front-end department in Billund. We work to develop innovative and functional injection moulded prototypes, making it possible to do qualified decisions in the early stages of the project. The objective is to minimise the risk in the project by handing over prototypes, models and specifications on critical parts to the novelty teams who will ensure the final implementation. Starting with a rough design brief, you ensure that it is transformed into matured parts, ready for the technical design phase. As you do this, you will:

  • Create 3D CAD models and specifications on plastic parts

  • Ensure innovation height and validate functional requirements in prototype parts

  • Interpret and implement quality requirements, paying high attention to product safety

Quality achieved through collaboration

You will join a company that is curious and has the imagination to challenge the existing to bring about new innovative ideas. We wish to make a positive difference for children, our partners, colleagues and the world we are part of. All of this influences the quality of our products. For us, quality means the challenge of continuous improvement - to create the best toy for children and their development as well as to be the best partner to our community and stakeholders. You become part of a cooperative and caring environment, where teamwork, collaboration and a project-oriented mind-set are of utmost importance

Mechanical engineer with strong collaborations skills

You will be challenged on your ability to find simple solutions to complex design wishes. To be a success, you are aware of the effort needed to follow processes and specifications to ensure high quality. With your structured attitude combined with an open-minded and creative mind-set, it is in your nature to balance solutions so that your colleagues from both creative and production departments feel comfortable and happy with the final solution. Moreover, you:

  • Are a mechanical engineer or similar with 3+ years of experience with 3D CAD construction of plastic elements

  • Have experience with injection moulding and/or product development and design

  • Have excellent communication skills in English

Bringing it to life

"This is an opportunity to work with the very early product development in a global project environment, where your knowledge ensures that design ideas can be transformed into producible LEGO elements. If you are interested in balancing creative and the engineering aspects of product development through close collaboration, then this is a great place," says Jørgen Lyshøj Dam, Senior Manager, TED Novelty Design.

Join the global LEGO® family

In the LEGO Group, we succeed together, and you will be part of a global family, where you can use your creativity and enjoy a fun working environment. We look forward to reading your application - please remember to attach a motivated cover letter and a current CV in English, when you apply.
