Introduction

ASML US, including its affiliates and subsidiaries, bring 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, 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 Mission

The software created by HMI, an ASML Company for scanning electron microscope (SEM) image processing and wafer defect inspection is highly efficient and real-time performance critical. Together with the High-Performance Computing team it is your task to ensure there is a platform where this software can run with high performance achieved and availability guaranteed. The team you work with designed the software platform setup, the Computational Infrastructure virtualization layers, manages firmware updates, and provides a key set of numerical algorithm optimization services to manage the platform. The team is very strong on the technical aspects. A candidate with affinity towards team collaboration and technical excellency, picking up daily issues that arise and guide priority setting is encouraged to bring this forward.

Job Description

The hands-on job of a High Performance Computing Cloud and Virtual Computing Platform Architect is responsible for the design, review and collaboration among algorithm and infrastructure teams for a future proof cloud and virtual compute platform with optimization on both in-house and at HMI’s customers. The stability of the existing platforms in the field and the introduction of the new platform with all its new opportunities and issues. You are profound in troubleshooting virtual computing platform both software and hardware, container virtualization, network, and other software issues even if these go beyond the platform. Robust definition of software & platform development processes, install, and upgrade (ansible, K8s, Container, Docker, shell script) is one of your hobbies. In the end, you take pride in robust and stable software platforms as you are a true software engineer.
