Inventor and IP Technologist (24212)

Cambridge or London
to £highly competitive + benefits

collaborative IP creation, invention as a service, electronics, applied physics

This unique company employ engineers and commercially-focused scientists, developing patentable inventions for big name product companies worldwide. They develop intellectual property, not physical products – that’s left to their clients – and effectively offer “invention as a service”, exploring innovative areas – thanks to the unique backgrounds of their staff – which are novel compared to companies’ own R&D.

They are seeking skilled engineers in electronics and/or applied physics, with an outstanding knowledge (capability and intuition) of potential applications. You will be keen to apply those skills to the collaborative creation of new inventions. A knowledge of relevant areas of IP, especially patents, is beneficial.

You will have a first class education, industry experience with leading companies, and your CV will clearly show your abiding interest in technology, including extra-curricular projects. You will be a creative person with an eye for detail, and an excellent communicator: you will co-present to client companies.

The company is headquartered in the EU, with UK staff distributed primarily around Cambridge and London. Remote working is possible but only from the UK. As the company grows, you may expect to be working full time in an office in Cambridge if you are nearby; likewise for London. Travel is to be anticipated.
