Do you see yourself as an expert in requirements engineering and are you challenged by translating functional requirements
into lean software designs? You combine strong analytical reasoning and conceptual understanding with excellent
communication skills?

If your answer is YES to all of the above, don't hesitate to apply. We are looking for you to join our metrology software team.

Job Mission

Metrology software orchestrates the behavior of powerful mechatronic modules, so that together they achieve an extraordinary combination of speed and accuracy. For example, one such module (a wafer stage), accelerates faster than a fighter jet to enable the ASML machine to position a silicon wafer in less than a second, with nanometer accuracy! As well as using metrology systems to position wafers, ASML also uses metrology systems to measure and compensate for sub-nanometer inaccuracies that
inevitably creep in due to material imperfections, temperature fluctuations, and/or atmospheric pressure changes. To achieve such challenging results, the best metrology systems ever imagined are required.

Job Description

Solutions of the metrology functional group are implemented in software by the metrology software department. Your role is to design high-quality software, allowing fast and efficient delivery of complex metrology functions.

The main tasks & responsibilities are:

  • Collaborating with other software engineers to design and implement features
  • Quickly producing well-organized, optimized, and documented source code in C/C++, python
  • Creating and documenting software tools required by architects or other developers
  • Debugging existing source code and polish feature sets
  • Contributing to technical design documentation
  • Paying attention to detail is essential and all tasks must be carried out to the highest standard


Master in computer science, software engineering, system engineering, or equivalent


  • 5+ years of experience as software engineer (object oriented design) in a multidisciplinary setting
  • A proven track-record in C/C++, UML, Unix/LinuxExperience with model driven engineering / Modelling is a big added benefit
  • Experience with Software Architecture/ Modular architecture and a general understanding of
    how software concepts map to machine behavior
  • Experience with Software Design Patterns, Gmock/Gtest and Code versioning (Git/SVN)
  • Experience with requirements engineering
  • Experience with model driven engineering / Modelling
  • An understanding of mathematical and Physical concepts and translating them to clean
    software designs
  • You must be familiar with the agile way of working
  • You are able to handle legacy software
  • You know how to work with MATLAB
