You will join the Vaisala Xweather team in Keilaniemi, Espoo, which is home to more than one hundred brilliant minds. We are a diverse bunch, but we share the same excitement about making the world a better place with data and technology. As a member of our security team, you will:

  • Collaborate with product managers, product owners, and engineers to implement our cloud security framework.
  • Apply your knowledge of system design and software engineering to deliver secure products.

  • Proactively translate security and privacy requirements into agile backlog work items.
  • Assist teams with DevSecOps and CI/CD pipelines for security scanning.



This is the ideal role for an aspiring software engineer who wants to specialize in cybersecurity. But first things first; you don’t need to be perfect. True experts are few and far between. It’s more important that you have the awareness and motivation to recognize and fill the gaps in your knowledge. We’re looking for someone who will grow as we grow. Someone who will help us develop the cybersecurity capabilities and expertise in our team. Specifically, we are looking for someone with:


  • Courage and curiosity to explore new opportunities in cybersecurity.
  • Some years of experience in software development positions.
  • Good understanding of software development standards and best practices.
  • Some years of experience in software security for public cloud based SaaS services would be a clear differentiator.
  • Knowledge of multiple languages and technologies including Java, Javascript (React, Redux, Typescript, Node.js), HTML, and AWS cloud services.
  • Hands-on experience with utility apps (Jira, Confluence) and Agile (Kanban, scrum).

The recruitment process includes a security clearance, which is obtained for the persons with their consent.
