Are you able to inspire people? Do you take the lead in getting technical issues solved? Do you see the big picture without missing the important details and you have experience with managing complex deliverables?
If you recognize yourself in the above, then we are looking for you! Join our enthusiastic and committed team in developing the vacuum solutions for our next generation of EUV scanners and bring ASML’s vacuum competence to the next level!

Job Mission

ASML’s Development & Engineering (D&E) sector is responsible for the specification, design and integration of the ASML machines. In this sector, the Vacuum Architecture group delivers vacuum & gas flow based EUV scanner solutions and controls to secure high and stable EUV transmission of the optical column while protecting the in-vacuum optics, reticles & wafers from molecular and particle contamination.

In the Vacuum Architecture group we are looking for a committed Main Deliverable Owner to strengthen the Residual Gas Analyzer (RGA) project.

Job Description

To prevent optics degradation in ASML’s EUV machines, the vacuum quality in the source and scanner is monitored continuously. Only when the molecular contamination is low enough, the system is granted to make light and expose wafers. This monitoring and granting function is delivered by the high-pressure RGA, a complex and highly sensitive measurement system that measures extremely small traces of molecular contamination in the optics vacuum environment and thus guards the optics.
As MDO RGA, you lead the multi-disciplinary team that defines and implements the improvements of the RGA for IBS and new products. You identify gaps and opportunities and drive to solutions, while keeping a critical eye on commonality throughout the different RGA modules.

Main responsibilities:

  • Manage team of technical experts, take operational responsibility within the RGA project
  • Set up and maintain deliverable planning according to the triple constraint of timing, resources and scope
  • Set the priorities for the team and coordinate the execution of the deliverables – strive for commonality in your scope
  • Secure close communication an collaboration with the supplier and our research partners
  • Drive identification of bottlenecks and/or improvement opportunities within the team
  • Secure the quality of the deliverables
  • Provide clear status reports
  • Work on the technical content of the project.


Technical University Master’s Degree in Applied Physics, Mechanical Engineering or equivalent field.


  • Experience with design & application of complex vacuum equipment
  • Experience in developing, integrating and testing complex products in a fast-pace multi-disciplinary environment, preferably within ASML
  • Experience with designing of products related to the field of vacuum and sub-atmospheric gas flows in cooperation with external suppliers
  • At least 4 years of experience in leading a small to medium-sized team.

Personal skills

  • Highly motivated, curious team player with excellent social, coordination and communication skills
  • Exhibiting a strong drive to achieve your results, able to convince your colleagues
