One of the first and main projects you will be working on is the company’s annual report, a publication that brings many aspects of ASML to life. You will align with the business stakeholders (mostly finance, sustainability and technology) and you will be responsible for driving its execution.

You will also be working on other corporate projects such as the company presentation and quarterly financial results, helping to develop clear messaging and content. When warranted, you will also offer hands-on support, write, create and edit. Throughout all of this, you keep your focus on what’s really valuable and will have the greatest impact.
