ATMAC Employment Opportunities

  • Patent agent – electrical, computer & mechanical fields

    salary

    Are you a registered patent agent with experience prosecuting inventions in the fields of electrical, computer and mechanical? Perhaps tried being a cog in a “big firm” and have thought there must be a more exciting career choice? Do you enjoy building and creating things of value? Would you like to lead a small group of aspiring patent specialists (agent trainees) helping you? Are you down to earth yet also have a sense of adventure? Do you do secretly view your patent drafts similar to how an artist views their works of art – sometimes taking way too long tweaking something simple because you want to get it just right?
