I love LEGO.

Like most of you, I’ve spent a big chunk of my life either creating amazing LEGO constructions or trying not to step on these little bricks in the middle of the night.

For all of us in e-commerce, we often hear about what it’s like to scale up. As a company, LEGO takes scaling up to another level all together.
