Cipher – About Us

We are a fast-growing London based startup, working with companies and investors to extract strategic intelligence from global patent data.  We recognize the role of patents in providing a window into who owns what technologies and where.  By harnessing the latest advances in machine learning combined with expert analysis, Cipher has changed the way in which actionable insight is extracted from global patent data.  More information can now be accessed with efficiency, accuracy and at a speed that is just not possible by traditional methods.

Role Description

We are looking for talented people to contribute to our mission.  All applicants considered.  Suited to, but not limited to, recent graduates, experienced professionals, academics recently retired and or those with spare time to do interesting work.  Remote working, but with full training and support provided on location in our London office.


Training of machine learning classifiers through supervised learning techniques.  What does that mean?  The trained classifiers are used to tag published patents against specific technologies.  The supervised learning is all done through the Cipher patent analytics platform and no prior experience of machine learning techniques or patent data is necessary.  We need talented people to research specific technologies that have been scoped with our clients and tag patents that are relevant to each as part of a supervised learning process.

Knowledge or experience in a specific business or technology field is an advantage.  Success requires following established procedures and best practice.  This opportunity is suited to results orientated individuals with an inquisitive mind who enjoy problem-solving and learning about new technologies and innovations.
