Patent Engineer

RaySearch, a world leader in the field of software for advanced radiation therapy, is now looking for a Patent Engineer to join our thriving organization. This fulltime position is based at our head office in the heart of Stockholm.

At RaySearch you will be part of a successful and fast-growing company that makes significant contributions to further advancing cancer care through innovative software solutions. RaySearch offers stimulating work with great prospects for professional development. We have a highly-educated staff and the company offers a very attractive office and work environment, flexible work conditions and a competitive compensation package.

The Patent Engineer has an important function as he/she is responsible for protecting the investments made in R&D through, for example, patents. The main focus for the person appointed will be to create and manage a patent portfolio as well as review relevant patents in our industry.

Personal profile 

To be successful in this role we believe that you should have a genuine interest in technology and the transformation of technical ideas into patent applications. We believe you have 3-5 years of experience working as a patent engineer or a patent examiner, and it would be an advantage if you additionally have some years of R&D experience. Although we work with some patent law firms, you are expected to write and file most the applications yourself. A European qualifying examination is not a requirement and we can offer a mentor for the patent prosecution parts for junior applicants. All our applications are written in English and hence strong skills in the English language are required. Excellent Swedish language skills are also required.

Since you will lead the patent work, there is a requirement that you can work independently in a structured manner without daily guidance. This also requires a strong attention to details.

The work contains a certain degree of administration and docketing.  


Your responsibilities will, among others, include:

  • Working with our engineers on patentable ideas
  • Drafting and prosecuting patent applications
  • Co-ordinating, instructing and guiding our network of patent law firms in different countries
  • Docketing and logging information about our patents
  • Performing freedom-to-operate searches

Education & Experience 

  • Master of science in engineering with a strong understanding of mathematics and algorithms
  • 3-5 years’ work experience from relevant field and position, for example as patent engineer, patent examiner or a junior patent attorney having prosecuted at least ten patent applications
  • A brief understanding of the various patent systems such as filing routes, time-lines etc

Working at RaySearch

We are a world leader in the field of advanced software for radiation therapy, proud of the products and solutions we work towards.    

Caring for our employees we offer excellent staff benefits, a flexible and stimulating environment with highly skilled colleagues. Our workplace has an open and positive atmosphere, where learning, creativity and collaborations are highly valued. We believe in equal opportunity, value diversity and work with dedication to prevent discrimination.
