Why you and us?

We at Wärtsilä believe in empowerment, ownership and taking responsibility of our work. We support each other’s growth and cocreation is the true basis of our innovation. We have courage to see opportunities and take initiative.

We are authentic and honest, and we strongly believe in a diverse and inclusive work community where everyone can be their true 
self. We don’t always get it right the first time, and if mistakes are made, we make sure to learn and grow from them. We want 
everyone to voice their opinions freely. That is why we have built an environment that empowers you and everyone around you, 
and where you can feel safe and cared for. Are you eager to be part of this ambition?

We have an amazing team, and we are excited about our work and the impact it has on building sustainable societies. We are 
looking to find a colleague with this shared passion for smart technologies and a sustainable future. The work in our team offers a 
wide range of interesting projects and we truly have an amazing team spirit. We hope to find a team member who shares the same 
passion we have.
