Meet Vincent, Lead Application Engineer
“The projects my team and I work on, empower all LEGO® employees to ease their daily tasks through the application of both good User Experience design and best Engineering practices. We are focusing our efforts on creating a visual design system, with reusable components for other teams to use in their projects, so we create a unique and homogeneous look and feel for all the internal applications at the LEGO Group. We apply the agile software development methodology in our team and with new colleagues joining every week, it’s nice to see people’s light bulbs go up when they learn something in new and different ways as well as seeing how it benefits the team. Working in Denmark is strikingly different from other countries where I’ve worked. Here, there is a nicer, slower, more relaxed pace in terms of personal life. At work though, it is still busy – as I think is true everywhere, but the work-life balance is different here. If you want to make an impact, there is an opportunity for you to do that at the LEGO Group, but it calls for campaigning and communication skills, which for an engineer is not always a part of the professional toolbox. But for me, coming from a smaller company it is an exciting challenge. It’s always been a childhood dream of mine, working at the LEGO Group, and luckily someone said yes to my application, so I’m quite happy!”
Meet Francesc, Applied Machine Learning Engineer
“We are developing a cloud-based machine learning moderation tool for web services and phone applications that we have at the LEGO Group so that the user-generated content we receive is checked automatically and images and text are filtered accordingly to give children a good and safe experience online. The LEGO Group is a very cool place to work, my team is very active in doing stuff together, so working feels like hanging around with your friends. On Fridays, we have breakfast together before work, and we also love playing table football against each other, so we spend quite some time there. The managing team is also very open to let you sign up for cool events, such as hackathons, and courses so that you learn or improve on different skills! The tasks are also very exciting, and your participation in decision-making is always appreciated, which encourages you to get the best out of each one of us working together, and I think that is very impressive when you have worked for such a short time in the company. Fun fact: we have a two-day introduction program, and one of the activities is that you visit the house, where the LEGO Group started. It is now a museum, and you can see every single LEGO®-set that has ever been built. That is a super cool way to start because you can bring family and friends as well.”
