In a nutshell


Veldhoven, Netherlands


Research & development


3-7 years



Job Category





Is solving complex engineering problems in a multi-disciplinary team-effort your passion? Does working in a multi-cultural and international environment makes you spin? Does contributing to the world’s most advanced lithography machines makes you feel responsible and proud? If all this sounds like music to your ears, this Metrology Design Engineer position might be the right opportunity for you.

Job Mission

Metrology orchestrates the behavior of powerful mechatronic modules, so that together they achieve an extraordinary combination of speed and accuracy. It is the brain of ASML lithography systems. To ensure ever shrinking of the integrated circuits printed by ASML machines, we need people who can help us build next-generation metrology products.

This is why we are looking for Metrology engineers who areexperts in requirements engineering and challenged by translating functional requirements into lean functional designs. We need highly motivated new colleagues who combine strong analytical reasoning and conceptual understanding with excellent communication skills.

Job Description

Your main tasks & responsibilities are:

  • Participate in the definition of system level specification ofdifferent functions,like functionality, algorithms, performance and reliability.
  • Troubleshoot on issues within our factory or at customer sites.
  • Investigate failure modes of the system and figure out the containment that will buy time to find the root cause of a problem.
  • Perform feasibility studies into required improvements, by means of experiments, simulation and analysis of existing (customer) data.
  • Enable the realization of new functionality by interacting with specialist software designers in the project team.Integrate and test the function against the specification.


A Master’s degree or PhD in Physics, Applied Mathematics or other Engineering (such as Electrical or Mechanical).


In terms of experience we are looking for specialists with at least two years of industry experience in a similar position.

  • Experience with functional specification and integration.
  • Experience with data analysis and modeling (preferably with Matlab or Python).
    Experience designing algorithms and functional models. Able to break down a large problem into manageable components.
  • Knowledge about the software development process.
  • Experience with the Agile way of working.
  • Experience with model-driven engineering or modeling.

Personal skills

  • Team worker and excellent communicator
  • Strong technical background and drive towards solutions.
  • Solution minded and able to see and develop the bigger picture.
  • Decisive and self-initiating
  • Result focused and a “can do” spirit
  • Ability to influence without power.

Context of the position

This position is available within different Functional Metrology Groups (Grid &SPM,Image Alignment, Image Quality, Leveling, Wafer alignment).
