At F-Secure, we are committed to helping people and businesses be free in the digital world, without having to worry about cyber security. Join us if you want to make a difference – in the world, for us and for yourself.

At F-Secure, you’ll be joining a tight knit network of over 1,600 colleagues, spread over 20 offices around the world. We are a mix of professionals from different parts of the business and variety of roles. We embrace diversity, knowing that it’s only possible to truly succeed as a team. Our business is dead serious but we aren’t.

We offer an interesting possibility in the rapidly growing industry of Cyber Security. We are looking for future cyber security talents who are willing to learn, contribute and bring new ideas to the work we do.

You can apply to do a master thesis or an internship at F-Secure anytime. However, please note that for summer internships you will need to apply separately, when the application will be open.

As a diverse workplace, most thesis projects and internships arise in dialogue between students and individual managers. The possibilities do, however, vary depending on our needs at the moment, so we can’t always guarantee you a spot. Only applicants with the most relevant background will be contacted so please bear with us as with the ever changing market, our situation also changes rapidly.

For thesis projects: You have the chance to write your thesis in a wide range of subjects so we recommend you to have some ideas on a theme for your thesis project before applying.

For internships: Internships range from 3-6 months and are full-time, based in our headquarters in Ruoholahti, Helsinki or our Oulu site.
