ASML is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of lithography systems that help enable Moore’s Law and the creation of increasingly powerful and capable electronic devices. Our San Diego-based light source division, Cymer, is renowned for developing both deep ultraviolet (DUV) lithography light sources and next generation extreme ultraviolet (EUV) light sources.As the world’s leading semiconductor equipment manufacturer, ASML enables chipmakers to produce cheaper, speedier chips – and to produce them faster – thereby enabling all the technology you use today. The systems we produce integrate several large and sophisticated machines, themselves each a feat of engineering innovation, precision, and speed.

We are a multinational company with over 70 locations in 16 countries, headquartered in Veldhoven, the Netherlands. We have 18 office locations around the United States including main offices in Wilton, CT, Chandler, AZ, San Jose, CA and San Diego, CA (EUV laser source creation).We are currently recruiting for internships located at our office in San Diego, CA.

In the Cymer Light Source (CLS) division in San Diego, we design and manufacture Deep Ultraviolet (DUV) lasers, used directly in the chipmaking process. Far from a basic “consumer” laser, these machines are complex, powerful, and flexible. The lasers we make require: durable and high-speed precise motion-controlled optics to maintain wavelength to femtometer accuracy under high laser powers; advanced materials to endure the harsh Fluorine-rich environments and high powers; clever mechanical designs to allow high performance and fit all the parts within a confined space, but still allow easy manufacturing and servicing; very fast high power electronics and electrical designs to deliver short high voltage pulses at precise timing to control pulse energy within hundredths of a percent; gas flows at hurricane speeds to keep the laser discharge area clear; cutting edge controllers and algorithms to deliver stable and consistent performance and automate all operations; and advanced real-time electronics, firmware and software to control the laser and interact with other equipment. The laser needs to minimize use of expensive or rare resources like energy or Neon gas. It needs to actively control temperatures, pressures, gas concentrations and voltages precisely to maintain good performance. It must react instantly to changing customer demands and environmental conditions. And it needs to do all of this, operating continuously and reliably for months while producing billions of perfect light pulses, without any human intervention or downtime.

If you have a passion for technology and innovation you’ll want to check us out. Be a part of Cymer / ASML. Be a part of progress.

One Company, One Goal, Limitless Innovation. It's our people that make the difference.

Job Mission

Ensures timely and effective purchasing and planning, to meet customer delivery dates, service requirements and inventory goals. Responsible for executing to a MRP plan, analyzing requirements, and mitigating material shortage impacts. Drives daily production efficiencies by releasing purchase orders based on MRP requirements. Assists with expediting material needed to support operations. Coordinates and/or monitors the receipt of materials. Issues purchase orders for material and/or services and ensures on time delivery from suppliers with acceptable quality. Analyzes and executes MRP planned supply messages to maximize the use of reclaimed material supply while minimizing new material expenditures for these components. Aligns with AP to resolve supplier invoice and payment issues. Coordinates with warehouse personnel to correct receiving discrepancies.

Job Description

  • Plans, issues and controls purchase orders and coordinates material requirements to ensure a controlled flow of approved materials timed to meet production requirements.
  • Communicates and/or assists in negotiating with suppliers regarding forecasts, engineering change notices, schedule changes, discrepant material issues, and delivery schedules.
  • Attains quotes, considers bids, and makes awards.
  • Monitors the supply base performance to assure excellence and quality of the product and product components.
  • Monitors raw material inventory for financial tracking purposes and in support of company goals.
  • Resolves a range of issues in practical ways and assists in making recommendations for policy/process action in order to monitor and expedite open orders, report on supply base performance, react to change orders, and plan and review the impact to the material availability.
  • Reviews MRP planned requirements and implements supply plan for all reclaimed material components.
  • Maintains Oracle ASL and Sourcing Rules as it relates to reclaimed material supply requirements.
  • Assists in recommending forecast adjustments based on actual performance.
  • Assists with cycle count reconciliation.
  • Coordinates purchase orders to satisfy the manufacturing demand when reclaim supply is not sufficient to meet material requirements.
  • Maintains metrics to measure supplier performance, i.e., on time delivery, cost reduction, cost avoidance etc.
  • Collaborates with manager on various projects such as cost target planning, supplier qualification and assessment out sourcing sub- assemblies, inventory model planning, and resulting execution to plan.
  • Keeps in mind cost reductions and cost targets of assigned materials.
  • Performs other duties as assigned.
