Patent Attorney to a global leader in home appliances

The Opportunity

A century of reinventing fabric care

Electrolux is a global leader within the Appliance Sector and you have the opportunity to join the Italian team of Electrolux Group Patents, which is based in Porcia, Italy. This is also the location of the Italian headquarters as well as important R&D and production facilities, including those of Fabric Care, the Business Unit related to washing machines, driers and washer-driers, to which the Italian patent team dedicates much of his work. You will therefore play a highly visible role as patent attorney in support of the growth of this and other Businesses, by a proper protection of their innovation and harvesting of their IP Rights and Assets.

The Electrolux Group Patents employs patent attorneys in Italy, Sweden, Germany, Brazil and the USA. The Department in Porcia, Italy is managed by Mr. Paolo Markovina who has over twenty years of experience in the patent profession. The team in Italy plays a crucial role in the support of several key R&D and business units including Fabric Care, Dish Care Food Preservation and Global Connectivity & Technology.

The Role

  • You become part of a global company which has a proven history of innovation success;
  • The patent team you join is at the heart of the Electrolux innovation community, where IP transcends the organisation;
  • You join a team with a wealth of experience in the business – not just the attorneys but research engineers who are passionate about their business and who understand the importance of IP;
  • You will cover the full gamut of patent duties;
  • You become the ‘expert’ for your designated business area and your opinion will be heard and respected.

Professional Qualities

  • You come to this position with at least three years of patent experience, preferably having successfully completed your EQE. Candidates who are part-way through qualification may also be considered as the department is nimble enough to be flexible to the needs of the individual.
  • You will be educated in Mechanical or Electronic Engineering, Physics or a related discipline.
  • Coming with in-house experience will be of benefit as you will quickly understand the daily challenges impacting the position. Conversely, the role would also suit someone who has worked for private practice provided you have experience of working directly with clients.
  • You will be fluent in English and a knowledge of Italian would be helpful although not crucial to the post.
