The VTT team

No two employees are the same. We need people who can think on their feet and solve problems quickly, people who know science and research inside out and people who are not afraid to challenge old ways of thinking. Many of our younger experts understand both business and innovation, but we also value employees who are passionate about research as well as foreign scientists who want to make the Finnish research community their home.

In addition to researchers, we employ a large pool of experienced marketing, sales, communication, human resources, IT, business and financial administration professionals, and we are always looking out for rising stars.

What unites us are inquisitiveness, a love of learning and a devotion to finding answers to our customers’ needs and solutions to global challenges.

Career stories

Research Scientist Vafa Järnefelt: The great thing about VTT is that it is impossible to get bored here

A little over a year and a half ago Vafa Järnefelt was about to graduate as Master of Environmental Sciences and dreaming about a job, where she would have a chance to do research on environmental affairs and apply the research in practice. Her colleagues at Finpro at the time recommended VTT, which in their opinion appeared well suited for Vafa.

Research Scientist Petri Tikka started his career at VTT as a thesis worker in the Production and Machine Systems in 2015.
