As we celebrate our 25th anniversary over the next month, we’re paying tribute to the women and men who helped build the success story that is F-Secure. You can experience that story here and help us fight malware in our anniversary arcade game.
Today we speak to our Scrum Master Jyrki Airola who joined F-Secure on May 2, 1994.
Where were you 25 years ago?
It was ’88 and I was 26. I was living in Tampere, studying. I was so happy with one fellow student when we finally found the cursor 🙂
What’s surprised you most since you’ve joined F-Secure?
I was still young when I joined back in ’94, hadn’t seen much life. People… fellows in this company were and are good in so many ways. People who care.
What’s your favorite piece of technology?
Mechanical watch movement. Beautiful piece of art, function and time. We’ve had it for over 500 years and it is still ticking.
How will the world be different in 25 years?
Things they come and go ‘n’ times they change. So, it’s gonna be sunny and we’re going strong but we are 25 years older 🙂 Whatever is ahead of us, we’ll handle it in due time.
What’s your 25th birthday wish for F-Secure?
Have another good one 🙂
