Senior Manager, Senior Counsel

Capital One's legal department is looking for a talented and dynamic patent attorney to join its fast-growing patent team. Members of our patent team are working to develop and implement an enterprise-wide patent strategy and to create a culture of inventor engagement and excitement. It's audacious work at a massive scale. If you are inquisitive, collaborative, and enthusiastic about technology, come join us!

We are looking for someone who:

  • is an outstanding patent attorney with experience in preparing and prosecuting software or electrical applications; the successful candidate will be responsible for protecting Capital One's inventions and helping shape Capital One's enterprise-wide patent strategy.
  • can proactively engage various teams across the enterprise to identify patentable innovations, run invention disclosure meetings and invention harvesting sessions, and provide education and training to technical teams.
  • can independently counsel clients and provide practical legal advice on a wide range of patent and IP transactional issues, including advising on matters related to litigation, open source software, licensing, and acquisition.
  • is an excellent verbal and written communicator; the successful candidate will need to feel comfortable presenting in front of inventors, colleagues, and stakeholders, and will need to be able to communicate complex legal concepts in a clear and simple way that fosters trust and respect.
  • can demonstrate sound judgment even in novel situations and understand business goals in a way that helps them evaluate risk effectively and provide practical legal advice.
  • has excellent organizational skills, attention to detail, and the ability to prioritize effectively to meet deadlines or business goals.
  • is creative and not afraid to try something new to raise the bar and improve experiences with teammates, inventors, and stakeholders; the successful candidate takes pride in their work and wants to add value outside of the day-to-day expectations of the role.
  • can create friendly and collaborative working relationships, particularly with their teammates, the rest of the legal department, internal clients, and outside counsel. A good sense of humor and an interest in having fun at work are pluses!
