You’re a patent professional with about 2-5 years of experience and you’d rather work on software patents than anything else. You have a thorough background in computer science and/or software engineering that enables you to see innovation in code. You can hold your own in sprint meetings on diverse development projects.
As the Patent Agent / Counsel responsible for software IP, you will become deeply integrated with our software teams and projects.

You will always have a patent draft on the go and you’ll be a key player in developing and implementing our patent strategy.
