How you spend the rest of the time that’s not working with clients is your call. F-Secure has a commitment to research.

A passion for security!
You love computers, you love security and you love hacking things and solving problems. If this wasn’t your job it would be your hobby. Technical excellence. You know your subject area, but you’ll also know what that subject area is without us needing to say.
You’re not going to be told what to do all the time. You are capable of figuring out what spending time working is of benefit to F-Secure and our clients and then run with it. With great freedom comes great responsibility and you also seek out guidance from those around you when you need it.
How can we add value to our clients organisations unless we can tell them what we did, how we did it, and how they can fix it? But communication also extends to sharing your knowledge with your colleagues and the wider industry.
