“It’s my first try at classic barbering. The skillful hand of a professional barber combined with DORCO’s double-edge blade makes the shaving experience really smooth.”
Q. What is it like working at the Patent Strategy Team?
The overall atmosphere at the Patent Strategy Team is calm and composed. The job involves a lot of paperwork such as analyzing patent specifications filed by others or reviewing existing technologies. It should be done with focus and attention to detail.
At the same time, cross-functional collaboration is crucial. Take a patent application as an example. Collaborating with the Development Team is essential to grasp the ins and outs of the invention and identify its technological significance from a patent perspective. DORCO teams know how to work together without creating communication silos.
Q. Any last words?
Our work at the Patent Strategy Team is to ensure DORCO’s products reach the market safely and prevent others from using DORCO’s patented technologies. So, much of what we do is behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.
That said, when it comes to patents, being accurate and painstakingly thorough is part of the job description. It shows how important what we do here is. I am proud to be a member of the Patent Strategy Team and committed to doing my role to bring DORCO razors to customers all over the world.
