    I have been working at PatSnap full-time (More than 3 years)


    I joined PatSnap a few years ago and it has been a unique experience so far. PatSnap is a fast growing start-up company with offices in UK, China, Singapore, US and Canada. As marketing executive, I get to learn from my counterparts from those offices on how they position the product to the customers there, and I have the opportunity to learn and localize it to local context. I am proud to say that we are the leading players in our space, we have the most popular online IP Academy platform, visited by hundreds of thousands visitors.


    It is definitely not a job for everyone. To work in PatSnap, you need to embrace change, embrace a lot of ups and downs. There are times I feel chaotic, but there are also times that I feel my work is very meaningful because I can have a lot of say in what I do.

    Advice to Management

    How to make sure all the people in difference offices can share the same values and mission, everyone can feel the together-ness and belonging, that we are one patsnap team that will be key for patsnap to continue to grow in the next few years.
