Are you ready for your next challenge, looking for growth, want to be proud of team achievements and to be part of the progress? If YES, join ASML Metrology!

Several of our Software Metrology groups are expanding. After receiving your application we will look at your profile and see if we can match it with existing positions. If we see a match your application profile will be added to an existing position and removed in this vacancy.

Job Mission

Metrology software orchestrates the behavior of powerful mechatronic modules, so that together they achieve an extraordinary combination of speed and accuracy. For example, one such module (a wafer stage), accelerates faster than a fighter jet to enable the ASML machine to position a silicon wafer in less than a second, with nanometer accuracy! As well as using metrology systems to position wafers, ASML also uses metrology systems to measure and compensate for sub-nanometer inaccuracies that inevitably creep in due to material imperfections, temperature fluctuations, and/or atmospheric pressure changes. To achieve such challenging results, the best metrology systems ever imagined are required.

Job Description

Solutions of the Metrology Functional Group are implemented in software by the Metrology Software Department. Your role is to design high-quality software, allowing fast and efficient delivery of complex metrology functions. The main tasks & responsibilities are:

  • Collaborate with other software engineers to design and implement features
  • Quickly produce well-organized, optimized, and documented source code in C++
  • Create and document software tools required by architects or other developers
  • Debug existing source code and polish feature sets
  • Contribute to technical design documentation
  • Attention to detail is essential and all tasks must be carried out to the highest standard.


Master or Bachelor in computer science, software engineering, system engineering, or equivalent


  • At least 3 years of real working experience as software engineer (object oriented design) in a multidisciplinary setting
  • A proven track-record in C/C++, UML, Unix/Linux
  • MATLAB and Python experience is a plus
  • Experience with model driven engineering / Modelling is a big added benefit
  • Experience with Software Architecture/ Modular architecture and a general understanding of how software concepts map to machine behavior
  • Experience with Software Design Patterns, Gmock/Gtest and Code versioning (Git/SVN)
  • You have an understanding of mathematical and Physical concepts and translating them to clean software designs
  • Agile way of working
  • Requirements engineering
  • Coping with legacy software.

Personal skills

ASML is a highly dynamic environment, which require:

  • To be a good communicator
  • To be a team player
  • To take initiative and to be result oriented
