This is a permanent role based in our London Hub near Chancery Lane station.

  • You will work with other engineering managers to establish and advocate best quality engineering practices across the organization
  • You will be an active contributor to the engineering leadership team and a role model for the LEGO Group ways of working and principles

Do you have what it takes?

  • You have previous experience of leading the performance and development of high-performing JavaScript software engineers at mid and senior level.
  • You are excited about helping others reach their goals and becoming the best engineers that they can be

Play your part in our team succeeding

Working closely with product owners, architects and software engineers, our Engineering Managers are a vital part of the LEGO.com engineering team. We have implemented a modern front-end stack based around Node.js and React with a cloud native serverless back-end and we use platform to design, build and operate LEGO.com.
