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 Purpose & Responsibilities

The primary purpose of the role is the training of machine learning classifiers through supervised learning techniques.  The 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.  The role requires following established procedures and best practice to deliver results.

Workflow includes desk-based research on specific technologies and companies, including corporate structures.  Other elements of the role include participation in client scoping and review calls, contribution to qualitative and quantitative analysis, and support on client engagement and with new business development activity.

The role is suited to results orientated individuals with an inquisitive mind who enjoy problem-solving and learning about new technologies and innovations.  As we continue to grow there will, with experience, be opportunities for career development and advancement in this role.  This is limited only by an individual’s skill and ambition.
