IPR Specialist

Framery is constantly beating the odds in the soundproof pod industry. It all started with Framery, and the success story continues with the next generation of phone booths, Framery One, the world’s first connected acoustic pod. Founded just a bit over a decade ago, today Framery’s products are sold to more than 70 countries with an IPR portfolio spanning more than 50 countries. 

To ensure our successful growth in the future as well, we are looking for an IPR Specialist with a business-oriented mindset to join our Kaguar Works team at Framery’s HQ in Tampere. The team is responsible for intellectual property rights and invention processes at Framery. In addition, Kaguar Works is about exploring, validating and nurturing product, service and business concepts before those are handed over to the operative organization – in short, being after something that is not yet invented. 

The IPR Specialist works with and reports to Framery’s IPR manager who is in charge of Framery’s intellectual property rights and leads the Kaguar Works team. We offer an opportunity to be part in managing the entire IPR portfolio as well as its enforcement and strategic development at a globally operating and growing company in a fast-developing industry. 

Your main responsibilities include 

  • Communicating with external IPR agencies as a link between Framery’s IPR decision-making and external IPR attorneys 
  • Keeping track of Framery’s operative IPR tasks and IPR-related development activities
  • Maintaining and developing Framery’s IPR records and documentation
  • Participating in IPR decision-making, conducting competitor IPR intelligence and basic IPR searchers and analyses with state-of-the art tools

You will succeed in this role if you have the basic knowledge and some practical experience of intellectual property rights, their application processes and associated decision-making. You have a careful and rigorous way of working and a business-oriented mindset.

Our ideal candidate would have:

  • Relevant university degree in technology or otherwise demonstrated equivalent understanding of technology
  • Basic knowledge of key types of IPR (patents, designs, trademarks)
  • Some practical experience in working with IPR (application processes and associated decision-making), either at an attorney office or in the industry
  • Full working proficiency in English
  • Careful and rigorous way of working

At Framery, IPR is not a separate function or a cost center, but rather is interwoven into all innovation activity and strategic planning and decision-making. Therefore, we offer an opportunity to work with intellectual property rights with a flavor which is not that of stacks of papers.

Moreover, we offer a youthful, refreshing, entrepreneurial and forward-looking culture which we're really proud of and even dare to call pretty unique.

If you want to see the big picture of intellectual property rights in a global setting and that in a pursuit and protection of competitive advantage in a fast-paced industry, and you are inspired by seeing innovations being born, this may very well be THE opportunity for you!

Interested? We’d love to hear from you as soon as possible. Please send us your application with a salary request by the 8th of August 2021 at the latest.
