Four employees side by side

Real people. Real experience.


Thank you for your interest in jobs at the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Please spend some time on our website getting to know us. We are an agency of highly skilled and diverse professionals working toward a common mission, and we're always looking for the best and brightest talent. 

At this time, the USPTO has temporarily suspended hiring activity. By order of the president, there is a 90-day freeze on the hiring of civilian employees across all federal government agencies. As part of this freeze, “no vacant positions existing at noon on January 22, 2017, may be filled and no new positions may be created, except in limited circumstances.” As a result, all hiring activities at the USPTO are deferred until further notice. We will update this page as we receive additional guidance and information. 

For more information on the hiring freeze, please read the full memorandum.
