We contribute toward better quality of life by providing a comprehensive range of innovative observation and measurement products and services for chosen weather-related and industrial markets. As an employer, Vaisala offers its staff the opportunity for long-term professional development in a company that operates in a responsible way.
The contents of the project will be primarily determined through Vaisala's business needs, but all fresh and innovative ideas from the program participants are highly valued.
Giant Leap interns will be working in our head office in Vantaa, Finland, our office in Espoo, Finland, our US office in Boston or in our France office in Saclay. Applicants must have a valid work permit for Finland, US or France depending on the location of the project they are applying to. Vaisala does not provide sponsorship for relocation in the context of this program.
Motivation, proactiveness and intellectual curiosity are the most important selection criteria for us. However, if a project involves deeper scientific, technical or financial skills and knowledge, then students with that kind of background are preferred.
We will hire up to 20 students, based on actual business needs.
Many of our employees began their careers at Vaisala as interns. An internship program is a good way of getting to know the company, its customers and business.

The selection events will involve individual interviews with the project owner and HR, as well as discussions around the program and projects. Candidates will also be given an introductory presentation of Vaisala and our activities and customers.
