Invent your future

Iprova is the company that is reinventing invention.
We’re pioneering a data-driven, artificial intelligence-enabled approach that enables the creation of  valuable physical science inventions much faster and more disruptively than ever before.  Our inventions are already helping to define the next generation of products and services at companies across the USA, Europe and Asia, such as Sony, Philips, DuPont and Panasonic.  All of the worlds top 10 technology companies – including Google, Microsoft and Apple – reference our inventions in their publications.

Not only do we invent fast, we are also growing fast!  Come and join our teams in Switzerland (Lausanne) or in the UK (London or Cambridge).

We offer an opportunity to enjoy diverse work locations

  • Skiing and hiking in the beauty of the Swiss Alps within 45 minutes of our Lausanne office
  • Buzz and energy in one of the world’s most vibrant capitals at our central London office

Some of the other great benefits include
