Working at Wärtsilä

We are a team of approx. 18,000 Wärtsilians around the world, in more than 200 locations in over 70 countries. We are experts in our own fields, with diverse skills, backgrounds and ambitions - what glues us together is the work we do to enforce Wärtsilä's purpose - enabling sustainable societies through innovation in technology and services - together.

For us, a global working environment isn’t just a buzzword. We have experts, suppliers, and customers all around the world. You get to learn something new from your international colleagues every day - whether it is about their profession, their culture, or themselves. Whether you are an engineer or a business professional, you can be sure you will find like-minded people around you and build vast professional networks – and new friendships at Wärtsilä.

Here's some of the stories behind our people. Read or watch what Wärtsilians tell about their work and life in general.
