ASML is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of chip-making equipment. Headquartered in Veldhoven, the Netherlands, ASML employs more than 21,000 people.
Development & Engineering
More than 7,000 engineers – from fields as diverse as physics, robotics, chemistry and materials engineering – work together with one goal in mind: to create a better, faster and smarter lithography system that our customers can use to mass produce their next-generation semiconductor chips.

Our system engineers are experienced and highly trained technical architects who oversee the early design of an entirely new system. Click here for current vacancies in this department.
A smaller group of engineers work in Research, exploring future technologies and engineering options with the help of a large network of universities, research institutes and technology partners. Click here for current vacancies in this department.
Thousands of our engineers worldwide are dedicated to a simple goal: making sure that the lithography systems in our customers’ factories are up and running. In the field and in Global Support Centers on three continents, they aim to detect problems before they can impact production. If a system does go down, our specialists work together around the clock to get it back online as fast as possible. Click here for current vacancies in this department.
Manufacturing a lithography system is a complex process. With thousands of parts, most of them made by suppliers, the Sourcing team manages long-term relationships, and ensures the parts arrive at our assembly sites on time, in the right quantities and according to technical and quality specifications.

Our cleanroom is where the work really comes together and a lithography system is assembled, proving that speed and accuracy are not mutually exclusive. Customers want their systems fast, but for a tool to operate with nanometer accuracy, it must be assembled, adjusted and tested with diligence and care.

Corporate Intellectual Property
Innovation is our lifeblood. So protecting the inventions that make us successful is vital for our future success. ASML has built up a strong portfolio of more than 10,000 patent rights. Patents preserve our R&D investments and ensure freedom to operate, creating leverage to negotiate deals and vigorously defend lawsuits. Click here for current vacancies in this department.
Transport Planning and Control
Shipping 100 tons of delicate lithography equipment halfway around the world in three fully loaded 747s – it’s all in a day’s work for Transport Planning and Control. The team not only arranges for the custom-made, air-conditioned containers holding the lithography systems to be transported by plane and truck, they also ensure the precious cargo is handled with care and not held up at customs.

Cymer is an independently operated business within the ASML group that develops, manufactures and services deep-ultraviolet (DUV) light sources. The product portfolio includes excimer lasers using argon fluoride (ArF) or krypton fluoride (KrF) gases to generate light in the deep-ultraviolet spectrum. These lasers generate the light that photolithography scanners use to image patterns on silicon wafers..

San Diego-based Cymer was acquired by ASML in 2013. At the time of the acquisition, Cymer was also at the forefront of researching and developing extreme-ultraviolet (EUV) light sources. These activities have been fully integrated into the ASML organization and continue to be based at the San Diego site.
