Computer science & software engineering




Even though ASML is classified as a hardware company, we actually have one of the world’s largest and most pioneering software communities. It would be impossible for our lithography systems to manufacture chips at such increasingly small dimensions without the software we develop. As a result, our lithography systems are now a hybrid of high-tech hardware and advanced software. Our development teams work across a range of coding practices, providing innovative solutions to the intricate problems that affect the chip-making systems at the heart of the electronics industry.
As a Software Test Engineer you evaluate the functionality of the software and try to identify the defects to ensure that the software is defect free, so quality is ensured.

Job Mission

It is your mission to test and report on the quality of ASML’s software. You prevent issues from reaching the customer.

Job Description

We have a Medior Software Test Engineer position open within our Applications Software department where we create new types of products that help our customers to improve the quality of their designs and their manufacturing process. These products measure deficiencies in the customer’s process and use ASML’s wafer scanners to correct them. System level testing is a very important step in the development process of our products and ensures that the system meets specifications.
The System Test Engineer is a key participant in the system level test process and provides important input to the product release decision making process. As a System Test Engineer you are a member of the Applications System Test & Integration team.

You define, create, execute and report on system level tests. You perform both regression and progression testing. Together with the Test Architect, you define the tests that need to be executed to verify the functionality and performance of our products. While executing the system tests, you detect and register issues. You work with development teams in diagnosing the issues and re-testing solutions.
You report the issues found and enable the product teams to judge the impact and risks of the issues. Lead time and test quality are important; you continuously seek ways to improve the efficiency and effectivity of your work. During the alpha test period, the team is expected to work outside regular office hours. The test & integration team is close to 20 people and follows an Agile/Kanban way of working.

You perform several of the following tasks:
• Software baseline validation;
-Execute the basic regression test on the software baseline;
• Quality check of the project deliverables;
-Contribute to requirement reviews with respect to testability;
-Review project input documents (project test report, process conformance);
