Meet Our Team

Working at Thermo Fisher allows me to blend my science education, technology interest and passion for learning new things in a productive manner. In my role, I combine business opportunities, technology and scientific capabilities with the needs of our customers to develop new, innovative products in the field of in vitro diagnostics. For the past six years I have been working on large scale research and development projects, bringing a new generation of mass spectrometry-based automated patient sample analyzers with related accessories to market. I enjoy collaborating with different stakeholders, colleagues and customers on a global scale. Working with a diverse group of motivated and expert colleagues keeps me invigorated and learning new things all the time. For me, no day is the same as the previous. The capabilities offered by Thermo Fisher Scientific enable unique product development opportunities that directly improve patient health care. The sky is truly the limit here.

The atmosphere is positive, open and relaxed, with everyone pulling together and working towards the same goals.

There is a passion behind our work because it’s important; we want to change things for the better for family, friends and anyone impacted by healthcare.
Narasimha, Software Designer, R&D, Vantaa
In my long career at Thermo Fisher (20 years), I’ve had the opportunity to work in many roles and with almost all the different clinical diagnostic instrument and product lines, within technical support, channel management, IT commercial projects, product service transfers and new product tech support and service ramp up. I was even able to work in the United States on a special one-year assignment. Our work in Vantaa focuses on problem resolution to ensure instrument uptime and usability to produce accurate test results for patients.

Currently, I manage and lead a technical 2nd level support team for clinical analyzers and laboratory automation systems. The most enjoyable and awarding part of my job is working and managing our highly skilled specialists. The team is incredibly dedicated to supporting our customer channels, distributors and OEM partners to solve any difficult problem they encounter. By supporting our channels and partners on a global level, we also get to know people from many different companies and cultures.
Patrik, Sr. Manager, Technical Service & Support, Vantaa
I develop efficient manufacturing-related processes for the clinical diagnostics products line. My job includes both hands-on daily troubleshooting, but also higher level process development and working with different stakeholders (like R&D, supplies) to help keep daily operations up and running smoothly. Although I’m not a scientist, I’m able to work alongside analytical chemists, which is very interesting for me.

We have such a dedicated and passionate team of process engineers, operators and testers, who give their 100% every day to achieve our goals. The knowledge at Thermo Fisher is extensive and there is always someone who can help share their experiences. There’s an open atmosphere of sharing information. I enjoy sharing my knowledge of engineering and science with Thermo Fisher because everything we do, including the products and devices we create in Vantaa, support our mission to make the world healthier, cleaner and safer.

Thermo Fisher Scientific has a great code of ethics and a strong commitment to diversity in the workplace, which is important to me. I work with everything relating to our local ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system, varying from support, reporting and data integrity. It’s also my responsibility to minimize cybersecurity risk to create the safest possible work environment for the team. I like that my role includes complex challenges, problems to analyze and the chance to learn something new every day. Working with our ERP system and other IT systems, we intersect with Operations, Finance, IT and many other partners. This is something I value since it provides me a variety of interesting tasks relating to my work. We have an adept team in Joensuu with expertise from multiple areas and a collaborative spirit in addition to the ability to form connections internationally. This is the era of digitalization, thus optimizing operations and connections through IT is vital to making the best decisions that help us achieve our mission of making the world healthier, cleaner and safer. Toni, ERP Systems Analyst, Joensuu
I’m responsible for the Clinical Diagnostics User Experience (UX) team and related processes. I really enjoy being able to work with a magnificent team full of enthusiastic professionals! Our team is responsible for the user experience and use-safety of the new and modified clinical laboratory analyzer and automation user interfaces and technical documentation in three business units in Clinical Diagnostics and Microbiology. We contribute to the design of clinical laboratory products that are used for analyzing the state of the patients´ health, enabling better medical treatment and healthier life.

One thing I love about my job is the day-to-day variation – working with different products and projects and with people representing different disciplines. I like working at a large, international company committed to investing in R&D. Thermo Fisher’s focus on health technology is very special to me. For me, it’s important that what I do has a positive impact on patient health.
