PATENTSCHUTZengel  is special. We are not only specialists but also border crossers.


Almost all employees have chosen a career path after their initial training, which is atypical. Engineers become patent attorneys who deal with far more than just technical issues; lawyers become attorneys who, with their work in the field of intellectual property, enter legal fields which play almost no role in legal studies, etc.

For this reason alone, as "career changers", we are open to employees who want to work across different areas and enjoy new challenges. We are therefore constantly looking for new colleagues who are willing to take on special challenges and who would like to join a team of cooperatively working specialists.

Since we have always relied on people who can think creatively and find new solutions, we also grant our employees the freedom that is conducive to such work in return. Part-time models, home-working opportunities and family-friendliness are just some of the options available to our employees. We do not see ourselves as a classic 'employer', but rather as an EFFECTIVE EMPLOYER. We also draw our ideas for modern forms of work from the company network "Success Factor Family", of which we are a member.

We look forward to receiving your detailed application. Please send your documents by E-Mail.

We are currently looking for you primarily to fill the positions listed below:

[By the way: We are interested in our (future) employees - and we know that many private things are not decisive for an excellent job. Therefore all people who meet the professional requirements can apply to us.]
