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 Chandler Arizona, San Jose and San Diego California, Wilton Connecticut, and Hillsboro Oregon.

Job Description

The proto Integrator (PI) works closely with the Project Leader/ Main Deliverable Owner to plan and execute defined Integration Packages (HLIS) on the proto Systems. You interface with D&E Project/ Team leaders, System Test Engineers, Project Integrators, Customer Support, Proto Engineers and Configuration Engineers.

Overall responsibility is to manage the pre-requisites for the HLIS packages and to deliver and qualify an optimized HLIS sequence and recovery, taking into account dependencies, resourcing, tooling, materials and other prerequisites. The Proto Integrator will report daily progress/ delays and escalate issues.

In this position you will be responsible for:

· Daily management of proto integration:

o Maintain a daily plan for 1 or 2 proto systems based on the mid-term proto integration plan.

o Set priorities and adjust plan in case of disturbances.

o Define milestones and deliverables with the team of machine fathers and make sure these are met.

o Maximize the utilization of the proto systems.

· Proto Integration plan:

o Create and maintain proto integration plan (mid-term) in line with the product development master plan.
