What we are looking for
We are seeking an In-house Patent Attorney to join our growing Intellectual Property department. This is a unique opportunity to become a core member of the IP team, reporting directly to the VP of Intellectual Property, and have a substantial impact on the company’s IP strategy and growing patent portfolio.
The Patent Attorney will be responsible for all IP aspects relating to Tropic’s Technology Development (TechDev) teams. The TechDev teams develop technologies which are used within Tropic but are also licensed out to third parties. We are therefore looking for a commercially oriented patent attorney who will be able to have a detailed understanding of innovations developed within the TechDev teams, translate these innovations into valuable IP assets and support commercialisation of these innovations. To achieve these goals, the successful candidate will work closely with both scientists and business teams and have direct access to relevant members of the senior management team.
The Patent Attorney will enjoy working in a fast-paced, multi-cultural company, and will have significant responsibility for creating and exploiting commercially valuable IP assets, leading patent prosecution and supporting decision makers within the company.
