To protect our customers even better we are investing heavily in expanding our core competences in the artificial intelligence domain. Would you like to be one of the people taking cyber security to the next level, with specific focus on security of artificial intelligence / machine learning?

We are looking for the right person to join the team in our Artificial Intelligence Centre of Excellence (AICE) working on solutions for securing machine learning and artificial intelligence. We are happy to consider both full-time candidates as well as researchers looking for a part-time industry role in addition to their academic career - collaboration with academia is a key part of our approach.

We see that artificial intelligence is software, but very specific kind of software and hence requires some specific type of approaches to security. This is one of our focus areas and we would like to expand the team with more people who have experience in the area of securing artificial intelligence. To be able to build the best defences we must also understand the ways to attack and will work also on understanding potential vulnerabilities and ways of attacking artificial intelligence powered solutions.

That said, there will naturally be also other interesting problems to work on in adding true artificial intelligence capabilities across F-Secure cyber security solutions as we are all about working together to protect our customers. We are all about cyber security, but being the best in the field requires a wide variety of different skillsets. We are a diverse bunch, but we all have one thing in common - what we do is meaningful and impactful. And we do not forget to have also fun while making a difference!

Key responsibilities in this role:

  • Design and implement algorithms and solutions to solve complex problems with specific focus on securing machine learning / artificial intelligence
  • Work with data engineers to implement effective and scalable data processing
  • Work together with cyber security experts to find novel solutions to real life problems

What we offer:

  • Possibility to put your analytical skills to real beneficial use - make a difference
  • Build solutions to secure artificial intelligence and machine learning in real life
  • Be a part of building the next level in cyber security - work as a part of a team dedicated to bringing artificial intelligence methods to practical use
  • Work together with like-minded and highly skilled experts and also learn from your colleagues

What We Expect You To Bring To The Table:

  • Understanding of core cybersecurity paradigms, adversarial thinking and threat modelling
  • Research or industry experience with security of machine learning / artificial intelligence
  • A strong mathematical background and Ph.D. or M.Sc. in Statistics, Mathematics, Physics, Information Science, Computer Science or Data Science (or other relevant field)
  • Solid understanding of the usage, implementation and theory of relevant algorithms such as for example regression models, neural networks, clustering and classification
  • Experience with relevant programming languages, for example: Python, R, Scala, Java
