F-Secure – Why Work With Us?


Corporate  infrastructures grow.  Threats change. Cyber  security evolves. Game  on.

Our Story

For too many businesses, too many manufacturers, too many people, security is an afterthought. What's the use of being connected to everything if our data, our identities and our transactions aren't secure?

From more than twenty-five years of protecting millions of computers around the globe, from the first malware to the latest targeted attack, we know this for sure: you will be hit. The only question is if you will recover and come back stronger.

To do that, you need the right team in your corner. For F-Secure, cyber security is more than a product—it's how we see the world.

Join us if you want to make a difference – in the world, for us and for yourself.

At F-Secure, we are committed to helping people and businesses be free in the digital world, without having to worry about cyber security. Every day, our Fellows face the daunting challenge of outsmarting those that disrupt the digitalized world. A difficult task, we know, but something we all come together to do for our customers. We make the world a safer place.

We have an inspiring history and an exciting future ahead. We are the experts in the complex domain of developing a holistic cyber security offering, but we remain curious throughout the way. We strive for growth and excellence in everything we do as we battle digital villains – developing new solutions, detecting new threats, and always looking for new perspectives. We have a proven track record that demonstrates our capabilities: patented innovations and award-winning products.

Protecting the world from digital threats requires giving our experts the ability to do what they think is right.

At F-Secure, we work hard to bring efficient solutions and services to our customers – and we work together to do so. As an F-Secure Fellow, you'll be joining a tight knit network of over 1,000 colleagues, spread over 25 offices around the world. You will earn the trust of your colleagues by taking responsibility for your projects and being accountable for your work. In an ever-changing landscape, we give our Fellows the ability and agility to perform within an agreed framework. Our Fellows dare to be the best when we give them clear goals and the authority to do the right thing.

It also means that our employees have flexibility in their work that are suited for each life situation.

Experts will work side by side, with integrity, towards a common goal. This is how we make our customers successful.

At F-Secure you will be part of our Fellowship. Be who you are – bring your best self.

Our Fellowship of people have a shared interest in being successful together and being open and honest with each other. At F-Secure, we meet each other as equals, but challenge each other's ideas – we believe this makes us all better and creates a more secure environment for our customers.

You'll find like-minded people at F-Secure, regardless of background or role. We are all hungry for knowledge and want to learn fast. We are curious about different perspectives, we're approachable in our attitudes, and we care about each other. Like a friend would. We navigate the cyber security world together – a world where we can only win by daring to be the best.

To us, Fellowship means that what we do together is more important what I do.

"As Cyber Security is more and more important, to me sharing the knowledge and educating people is very important."

I'm very passionate about helping people and by doing that I want to save the world.

"What makes this company such a great place to work is the fellows and belief that fellows are not just human resources"

As a marketing and PR person I am often asked, "Where does the ‘F' in our company name come from?" It doesn't stand for "Finland", the country in which the company was                    founded, as you might expect. I tell anyone who asks that                                it stands for "fellows", the word we use describe our co-workers.

    Lack of brand awareness in North America
    Onboarding was shaky, but manageable

    Advice to Management

    It would be great to have one North American HQ, instead of being staggered across the US. I think that as an organization most people are available, but there's more synergy when we are all together. Other than that I really love working here and I don't know why the organization only has 3.6 stars because it really gives a lot back to it's employees.
