Florida’s LEGOLAND Is Hiring People to Build Things All Day

Good news for anyone who was obsessed with Legos growing up and who would like to escape the snow: The creative division of Merlin Entertainment, which runs LEGOLAND theme parks worldwide, is looking to hire 20 Master Model Builders” at their factory, known as the “Merlin’s Magic Making Hub,” in Lake Wales, Fla., a spokesperson tells TIME.

The company says it is accepting applications from people of all backgrounds, so Lego fans don’t necessarily need to be architects or graphic designers to throw their hat in the ring. In the past, the interview process has involved build-offs, requiring applicants to construct a Lego model based on a photo.
