Full Time / San Francisco
What we are looking for:
We recognize that continuous innovation is needed to build the best systems, and we look for people who can help us continue to learn and grow. We’re hiring for several positions on our engineering & product management teams. We’re going to be building the fun stuff; new products and features that will arm our end users with key information that protects innovation and encourages growth of their own products. Most importantly, you’re going to be working with a unique and actionable data set - which we’ve invested in collecting - so you can focus on building applications that help solve the patent problem.
Specifically, we would like to speak to:
Naturally you will be passionate about crafting quality software in an agile environment. We pair program TDD code to deliver the best results; and we’re very interested in engineers who are passionate about protecting companies from patent related lawsuits. Our team collocates with Pivotal Labs in SoMa for the next few months before taking the project back to home base – which means breakfast every workday, complimentary drinks and snacks, tech talks, beer nights and ping pong.
RPX is a four-years-young public company that is transforming the patent marketplace through our data analytics platform and commitment to solving “The Patent Problem”.
We’re working to solve the problem of increased patent litigation, by working with our clients to remove dangerous patents from the market, and to help resolve litigations in which they are involved. We do this by providing defensive aggregation (group buying of patents) and extensive data analysis, and doing both well helps our clients make the best decisions possible for their business. As a mission statement, we do not litigate to assert patent rights against clients and non-clients alike: our goal is to guide the patent marketplace to operate by the rules of rational behavior, as opposed to being dictated by ever-increasing legal fees.
Our technology team is the engine that helps us innovate, scale and grow this business. You’ll help accomplish this by improving our unique data set, creating applications that provide views and analysis into our existing data, and building the platform that we expect to be the foundation of all patent transactions in the future. And you’ll do this while bringing the energy and focus of a startup to a strong engineering team.
Our 140-person company is headquartered in downtown San Francisco, steps from the Embarcadero BART and Ferry Building, with beautiful views of San Francisco Bay and BOTH bridges! We’re also less than a block away from excellent restaurants, convention centers and a wealth of public transportation options.
