V-Nova is changing the way we compress data
V-Nova’s multiple award-winning PERSEUS™ technology is the only cross-media codec format that delivers on the promises of next-generation image and video compression, today.
But we don’t stop at what we have. At V-Nova we continuously invest in research and development, and have world-class people and facilities who work towards innovating our technology.
Unique people for a unique technology
You love technology. You get excited about talking with inventors who are working in directions where nobody else is looking. But you also know that technology doesn’t work in a vacuum, and it needs to be aligned with business and commercial drives to make sure it really is a game-changer.
You love communicating with people, working in teams, challenging and being challenged, influencing others and make sure they become the champions of the innovation you are helping to create. You work with innovators, software engineers, business leaders, sales people, business developers, and you link them all to make sure that the technology is applicable to as many fields as possible. You don’t simply capture innovation, you help shaping it.
You need energy, enthusiasm and a good dose of creativity to see things that others don’t. But you’ll also need to be able to tell stories and put IP in the business narrative. We don’t measure things in how much time you need to do something – rather, we think in terms of deliverables and added value.
What we expect
You’ll have the ability to help evolving the IP function, selecting the right tools, the best external counsels, managing the IP portfolio and help the business in IP related issues. You won’t be alone in this journey. You’ll work very closely with the management team and the legal team, and you’ll work together with the SVP of IP in helping to shape the IP strategy of the company.
You will capture ideas, draft patent applications and prosecute them. You’ll help managing the IP portfolio (yes, not only patents, but also trade secrets, trade marks, etc.) and make sure that money is well invested. You’ll also help managing IP risks and help monitoring where innovation is heading to.
Ideally, you have recently qualified as a patent attorney, and you have a background in Maths, Physics, Electrical Engineering or Computer Science.
What we offer
A competitive salary, potential for equity in a fast-growing start-up as well as the possibility to learn and develop are on the table. We also have a good benefits package including pension, private medical insurance, lunch vouchers and season ticket loan scheme. And of course, a fantastic young start-up team who believe working hard and having fun are part of the same story.
