Our office facility is conveniently located near the King Street Metro station in Alexandria, Virginia. Come to learn more about the U.S. patent system, the role of a Patent Examiner, and how you could fit into the fast-moving pace of our office.
The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) employs a staff of over 8,000 people at our office facility in Alexandria, Virginia, just outside Washington, D.C. USPTO employees support the major functions of the examination and issuance of patents and the registration of trademarks. The focus of this Job Fair is to recruit highly skilled, motivated individuals to become patent examiners.
The educational requirement for a Patent Examiner position is a Bachelor of Science or higher degree in one or more engineering or science disciplines, in particular electrical, computer, chemical, mechanical, and biomedical engineering with a concentration in electrical. Effective oral and written communication skills are a must, and will be assessed as part of your application for the job. U.S. citizenship is also required.
As a Patent Examiner, you will recommend or decide whether the U.S. government will grant exclusive rights to patent applicants for their inventions. You will receive both formal and hands-on training on the legal and technical requirements for the patent. Your responsibilities will include doing research in the field of technology of that assigned patent application, performing technical and legal patent analysis, and generating a written report to the patent applicant of your findings. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office is a performance-based organization; therefore, your performance ratings and awards package are based upon established quality, timeliness, and productivity measures.
Engineers with experience in Telecommunication Networks, including Bandwidth Sharing, Switching/Routing, Video/Image Distribution or Network Management, are highly desired.
The USPTO, an Equal Opportunity Employer, is dedicated to building a diverse workforce and provides an enticing work environment supported by flexible work schedules, a casual dress policy, and payment of a transit subsidy. There is a substantial benefits package including enhanced federal government salary rates, vacation and sick leave, performance bonuses, health benefits, and a comprehensive retirement package, not to mention job security. In addition, the Office supports a law school tuition reimbursement program for examiners meeting program criteria.
