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.

Hermes Microvision, Inc. (HMI), an ASML company, is a leading supplier of advanced e-beam inspection and pattern verification systems used for advanced semiconductor devices. HMI has multiple years of e-beam application experience and leadership in semiconductor factories, focused on high resolution and voltage contrast imaging. As part of ASML, HMI will boost ASML’s holistic lithographic portfolio of (i) lithography exposure systems, (ii) computational lithography and (iii) metrology. Between these three cornerstones ASML offers application products for process window enhancement, control and detection. As part of our team, you will have the opportunity to go beyond yourself in developing more advanced techniques and pushing the boundaries of technology.

Job Description

The eBeam Application Programs extends e-beam technology through the combined use of wafer metrology & metrology data and computational models of the semiconductor manufacturing process. The technology is used to find pattern defects on semiconductor devices.This enables the prediction and reduction of defects, as well as yield improvement through the combined use of ASML models, metrology & inspection data, and scanner control.

This position reports to HMI’s product engineering manager and work with the team to solve the challenges associated with finding critical defects at the 10-nm node and below.

We are seeking candidates to join a team of engineers to conduct exploratory data analysis to gain deep understanding of the challenges from mathematical, physical and business perspective.

Responsibilities include:

-to develop and support customer applications

-own the functional specifications of new products, their functional and integration testing, and the development of best practices for standard or customized applications

-provide second line support for established products

-participate directly in product development, thinking strategically about applications, gaps and technical-business tradeoffs

-understand existing product features and data flow, dive into the underlying data, apply relevant engineering or statistical methods, and document and communicate results to the functional development team

-design experiments and organize data from varied sources with the aim of generating actionable insights, including machine learning or statistics-based algorithms for prediction and optimization

-design components/modules of software products

-write design requirement documents, test plans and procedures, test acceptance reports
