As reported in Mental Floss, the Lake Wales, Florida, company is looking to hire 20 Master Model Builders in its factory, who will be tasked with using Lego pieces to create giant sculptures.

"It's a brand-new production facility to make Lego models for Merlin attractions all around the world," model shop supervisor Ryan Wood told Fox 13. "The kind of models we make here are typically for mini-land attractions within the Legoland and Legoland Discovery Center parks."

Merlin has 50 builders on staff already, but wants to expand. The job description says hirees will make "sturdy, accurate, complicated, safe and installable Lego models for a wide variety of Legoland attractions including miniature scale models and/or life sized organic models from prototypes, diagrams or computer generated instructions."

The job hiring process might not be your typical one. Applicants may have to participate in a "build-off" to show off their amazing interlocking skills.

In addition, you'll need more than just two hands to join blocks. If you want the job, you'll need a high school diploma and "previous experience in Lego model building (architectural and/or sculptural), basic computer knowledge, [and] a good knowledge of Lego parts," among other things.
