The teams have their own focus areas, but all in all VTT offers opportunities to look in many directions. The work feels like a hobby in the sense that you are working with the kind of matters you might delve into in your spare time as well,” says Research Scientist Petri Tikka, describing his work

At VTT we have nimble troubleshooters, deep thinkers in science and research, and pioneers who boldly challenge old ways of thinking. Our young experts often combine business savvy with innovativeness, but a VTT employee can just as well be a passionate senior scientist immersed in research or an international scholar who has discovered an ideal workplace community here in Finland. 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. We also employ many students working on a master’s thesis or doctorate, and interns. 

We all share a curiosity for learning new things and finding solutions for challenges posed by our clients and by the wider world. If you are interested in working at VTT, read more about working at VTT and about our recruitment process, or check out our vacancies and internships.
