Executive Assistant

We are looking for an Executive Assistant to support our Industrial Measurements’ Executive Vice President and the leadership team at Vaisala headquarters in Vantaa.

 

“We have already prepared a seat for you for the days that you will be spending with us at the office. We will have plenty of exciting stories to be told and we are really looking forward you to join us.”

 

                     - Juha Ryödi member of the leadership team, Industrial Measurements

 

We really do have exciting stories about our products to tell which you might not yet be aware of. For example, our products have helped to ensure the optimal conditions for COVID-19 vaccine development. To continue with, Vaisala helps to preserve the Mona Lisa painting by measuring the stability of the humidity and temperature environment within its glass vitrine in Louvre. On the other hand, the Curiosity Rover continues its work on Mars with Vaisala pressure and humidity sensor technology onboard. And because it’s time for the Octoberfest, it is relevant to point out that our refractometers can be used in brewing processes.

 

Would you like to learn more and become a proud advocate of these stories as well? Check out the details for applying this position!
