F-Secure – Why Work For 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.

We make the world a safer place.

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.

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.

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.

"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.

    Partner Experience Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Helsinki, Southern Finland (Finland)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at F-Secure (Helsinki, Southern Finland (Finland)) in June 2017.


    I applied for a job at F-Secure and I think they really outperformed doing the recruitment process. The process had multiple rounds but I was always well informed about the development of the process. The recruitment manager told me, when he was going to inform me about the next phase and he always did it in time.

    During the process I had also the possiblity to meet my future team and to make sure that F-Secure is also a perfect fit for me.

    I was also given tasks beforehand that I then presented during the interview. For me personally, this was a great way to convince F-Secure about my skills.
