The USPTO employs over 8,000 patent examiners, and we're actively hiring more! Patent examiners are skilled professionals who use their engineering, science, or STEM degrees to work closely with attorneys, inventors, and entrepreneurs to process their patent applications and determine whether a patent can be granted. They carry out the USPTO's mission by providing high quality and timely examination of patent applications. Their work helps businesses quickly move their innovations to market, creating new jobs and expanding commerce.
