You can’t design culture! The F-Secure team is diverse, fluid, fun-loving, and full of energy. It’s our job to preserve that, so we’ve made it our business to help individuals traverse from passion to passion, from specialism to specialism, from the flavor of today to tomorrow’s. We move with their needs, and help them build Pathways, always focusing on the things that make them happy in and beyond of the office. See yourself here? Bring your best self and apply now. To describe everything we do at F-Secure would take pages of text. So instead, here are a few quotes written by some of the teams working here. We hope they give you a glimpse into the sort of things we're doing right now. "As data engineers we process data, and lots of it. We utilize AWS technologies heavily, often building serverless solutions that combine Lambda functions, Kinesis streams and S3 storage. We’re language-agnostic and will pick a language that is most suitable for the problem at hand. Often this means JavaScript (Node.js) or Python but we've also used Java and Scala. Our systems process data both in real-time and in batches using EMR and Spark. We handle both the development and operation of our solutions, typically with the help of AWS CloudWatch. Right now, our main tasks include providing data for content classification, malware classification and intrusion detection solutions." Klas, Data Engineering Team "Our team is in charge of designing technologies and logic to detect new threats surfacing in the wild. Right now my team is working on designing logic to detect file-less malware and attack vectors, which have been on the rise during the past year. To do this, we've collected data from compromised environments and fed it into elasticsearch. From there we performed data analytics (using tools such as Splunk and Kibana) in order to find patterns in the PowerShell command-lines seen in each attack. These patterns are now being used to drive the design of new malware detection logic." Edil, Threat Protection Team “When looking for my first-entry software development job, something struck me about F-Secure compared with other companies. F-Secure had always been a force of influence in my life and public appearances by Mikko and Erka, as well as my growing interest in cyber security made F-Secure feel like a good choice for me. Having no prior experience in the field other than through my University studies, I felt that I would receive the right guidance about ways of working and thinking within this field. Now, working in F-Secure, I know I have made the right choice; an international company with a motivating work environment and concrete, expert guidance from cyber security professionals.” Joel Lehtelä, Junior Developer (Oulu, Finland) F-Secure is not just a software house. We employ plenty of experts in areas such as data science, malware analysis, reverse engineering, penetration testing, software security, incident response and forensics, red teaming, risk management, hardware vulnerability testing, and a whole lot more. Folks who work at F-Secure often switch roles, learn new disciplines, and work with stuff that most people don't see in regular tech jobs (or any jobs, for that matter). If you're interested in cyber security and the idea of gaining highly sought-after skills and experience in a rapidly growing industry where there are currently more than two jobs for every experienced individual (and that number is growing every year), take a look at our open positions.
