F-Secure makes every digital moment more secure, for everyone. We deliver brilliantly simple, frictionless security experiences that make life easier for the tens of millions of people we protect directly and through our 170 service provider partners. Our vision for cyber security is intensely human-focused and consumer driven. We believe the future of cyber security is not just great protection technology, but also the ability to bring it to the consumer in a spirit of simplicity and usability – providing a brilliantly simple security experience.

We at F-Secure want our Fellows at work to feel valued, appreciated, and free to be who they are. We believe that the future cyber security protection is built upon diverse backgrounds, skills and characteristics. It drives the innovation that help us protect millions of people online from modern and unexpected threats. What makes you unique is what we value – be yourself, that is our greatest asset

Would you like to deepen your tech skills in a growing and top-innovative company with a tangible impact in consumer cyber security? We are ramping up our technical capabilities of our fresh ‘Protection Platform’ team by hiring a Lead Cloud Developer. The main objective of our team is building and strengthening our cloud ecosystem that identifies and catches malicious URLs and files that threatens the security of our customers. Our systems are widely utilizing AWS, and developed with DevOps/SRE mindset, CI/CD, self-healing, elasticity and all that jazz. How often is there a chance to build big scale back–end systems while knowing they make a difference – securing digital moments that consumers, like you and me, experience online?

We are looking for people who have a common interest in cloud development to build a green field massive scale system, serving tens of billions request monthly, backed up by a metadata analysis system. You can be a developer looking for career progression or perhaps a seasoned cloud professional searching for the next technical challenge to tackle. We appreciate your interest in agile working methods and experimentation culture to improve ourselves to respond to business needs in a sustainable way. Either way you will get to do this in a work environment that nourishes innovation, learning and diversity.

As a Cloud Developer in our Protection Platform team, you'll get to:

  • participate in designing and developing serverless microservices running on AWS infrastructure and considering aspects as maintainability, cost, performance and simplicity
  • participate in designing and developing metadata and analysis system
  • build and optimize CI/CD pipelines for continuous and safe deployments
  • work with other teams to understand the problem domain and find right-level-of-abstractions that get translated into microservices
  • managing support queries from other teams
  • optimizing and automating production monitoring and logging
  • continuously evaluate better ways to serve the needs, e.g. by leveraging AWS services or other 3rd-party SaaS over inhouse implementation

You will work closely and get support from your team members, but also other development teams and functions to build the best fit-for-purpose service.

Our 'Protection Platform’ team is in Helsinki, Finland. The team’s purpose is to provide an answer for a simple question, 'Is this safe', for F-Secure's products and partners. The question is simple, but when repeated billions of times for millions of different objects, it requires a lot of engineering work and talent to make it in a cost effective and performant manner. We have flexible remote work practices, but our team enjoys gathering at the office every now and then for team building and co-working. We hope this is something you would enjoy as well.

You should leave us your details if you have:

  • Experience in software development with Python backends for high performance system
  • Working-life experience with managed and serverless AWS cloud services with IaC tooling like CDK
  • You enjoy working in a team environment: you communicate effective about technical details and have an ever-curious attitude towards your work. On the other hand we strive to ensure an inclusive, open and warm team environment, where everyone's opinions and ideas are valued and appreciated.
  • Language skills in English (our organisation language is English)
  • Willingness to relocate to Finland if you are currently not living here

Make sure to mention these if you wish to gain "bonus points":

  • Experience on optimizing a system using global CDN, where milliseconds matter
  • Building a high-performance data ingestion, database and analysis system

What will you get from us?

  • You will work together with experienced and enthusiastic colleagues, and within F-Secure you will find some of the best minds in the cyber security industry.
  • We actively encourage our Fellows to grow and develop within F-Secure, and in your career here you can find yourself contributing to any number of our other products and teams. You decide what to make of this role, what your priorities are, and how you organize your work for the best benefit to us all.
  • We offer interesting challenges and a competitive compensation model with wide range of benefits. You get a chance to develop yourself professionally in an international and highly motivated team serving our customers in providing world class security, privacy and uncensored access to information online.
  • You get to work in a flexible, agile, and dynamic working environment that supports individual needs. Giving our people both support and the opportunity to be in charge of their own work is something that is in our DNA.
  • We are in a unique phase in our 30-year history and with curiosity and excitement in the air we see no limits for building a strong and fruitful career with us!

Our benefits include extensive health care, remote working, company supported sport activities, lunch vouchers, regular massages, gym and sauna at the premises and many more things to keep our best asset – people - happy!

A security background check will possibly be conducted for the selected candidate in accordance with Finnish Security Clearance act 726/2015.
