ASML’s Applications products are critical elements in the semiconductor manufacturing process. Proto systems are used for verification of existing and new functionality, as well as for qualifying system releases. Proto systems are expensive and scarce resources, and therefore are in continuous operation. This requires high availability and flawless operation. In your role as proto engineer, you play a key role to achieve this. Not only are you responsible for maintenance and troubleshooting issues once they occur, but you are also involved in system integration, test preparation and test execution on proto systems.

Job Mission

In your role as proto engineer you ensure efficient and effective integration and test activities on the proto machines.
You assure high availability and flawless operation of these proto systems. You prepare proto systems for integration and test activities, perform troubleshooting and also take part in test execution where possible. You work together with proto integrators (responsible for planning), system test engineers and your fellow proto engineer team members.

Job Description

You have the following tasks:
-Assure high availability and flawless operation of proto systems
-Keep the machines in a perfect state: hardware and software configuration up to date and well-functioning
-Perform proto system maintenance activities and monitor proto system performance
