Our global tech startup is now preparing it's East Coast expansion to coincide with it's London launch and we are looking for founder minded partners to lead intellectual property divisions throughout the northeast. The specific location of this role is flexible because you can work from most anywhere on the east coast.

If you enjoy meeting people and helping innovators achieve their dreams then please take a moment to read on and let us know if you are the right fit.

Working with intellectual property and securing patents is a combination of both strategy and perseverance. Often times you will be working in a dynamic environment with even more dynamic people.

We recognize that you likely have a great deal of business and innovation experience so we let our partners control their own work flow, as you can still help our clients meet life-changing deadlines.

What you will be doing:

You will be helping innovators build a strategy for bringing patentable ideas to the marketplace.

You might be surprised to learn this:

If you excel at relating to people, understanding the need for innovation and desire being in control of your future earnings then this could be the perfect job for you.

The most important personality trait required:

It's essential that you can empathise with people that are trying to improve the world around them because your clients will need you to help them protect their dream. If you have a strong desire to be in charge, whilst also being supported by a team of experts then you will likely excel in this role.

Here are a few perks on the position:

Support will come from a proven, international team of intellectual property professionals and technical experts across the globe. You will enjoy the flexibility of being your own boss, without assuming the risks of starting a business on your own.


University education or an extensive, proven record of patent experience is preferred but not required.

A well established business network within the northeast is also preferred, but again, not required.

Strong communication skills, the ability to work independently and within a team, is absolutely essential.

You must be comfortable using online technology platforms, but specific training will be provided.


Compensation will be commensurate with experience and performance, based upon agreed KPI's.

Holidays are "as needed". Please know that you will be required to deconflict with the other members of the US team, so that clients are covered during your absence. You will also be required to have weekly Skype meetings with the London team.

You will be working for a great startup, made of people who are passionate about helping individuals and businesses protect their innovations and see dreams become an affordable reality.
