ASML US brings together the most creative minds in science and technology to develop lithography machines that are key to producing faster, cheaper, more energy-efficient microchips. We design, develop, integrate, market and service these advanced machines, which enable our customers - the world’s leading chipmakers - to reduce the size and increase the functionality of their microchips, which in turn leads to smaller, more powerful consumer electronics. Our headquarters are in Veldhoven, the Netherlands, and we have 18 office locations around the United States including main offices in Wilton, CT, Chandler, AZ, San Jose, CA and San Diego, CA.

Job Mission

The Service Project Engineer (SPE) works closely with the Service Project Lead SPL) to create and deliver service sequences that are verified and released to our EUV customers (Customer Service and Factory). Core responsibility is to use the high-level blueprint structure to create optimized service sequences, taking into account dependencies, resourcing, tooling, materials, and other prerequisites, while minimizing system downtime and availability. The Service Integrator will strive to maximize synergy between Manufacturing and Service by maintaining commonality of the sequences and other work prep deliverables used by these organizations.

“This position requires access to controlled technology, as defined in the Export Administration Regulations (15 C.F.R. § 730, et seq.). Qualified candidates must be legally authorized to access such controlled technology prior to beginning work. Business demands may require ASML to proceed with applicants who are immediately eligible to access controlled technology.”
