ASML gives the world's leading chipmakers the power to mass produce patterns on silicon, helping to make computer chips smaller, faster and greener. ASML is the leading supplier to the semiconductor industry, driving lithography system innovation.
Our Metrology department facilitates solutions that can quickly measure imaging performance on silicon wafers and feeds that data back into the lithography system in real-time, helping to keep lithography performance stable in high-volume chip manufacturing.

At ASML our 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.
For our department Expose DUV we are looking to hire several strong C++ Software Designers who enjoy translating functional requirements into lean software designs.

Job Mission

Unlocking the full potential of the DUV scanner to do the perfect exposure in a nanometer world!

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 and responsibilities are:
• Collaborate with other Software Engineers to design and implement features;
• Quickly produce well-organized, optimized and documented source code in C++;
• Create and document software tools required by architects or other developers;
• Debug existing source code and polish feature sets;
• Contribute to technical design documentation;
• Attention to detail is essential and all tasks must be carried out to the highest standard.


Bachelor or Master in Computer Science, Software Engineering or equivalent is strongly preferred.

• Experience working in a multidisciplinary setting;
• Experience with large scale software development
• A proven track-record in C and C++;
• Extensive work experience with Python and Linux;
• You have a good understanding of mathematical and physical concepts and translating them to clean software designs;
• 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, test-driven development (TDD) and code versioning (Git / SVN);
• Experience with Agile software development methodologies;
• Requirements engineering;
• Experience with maintenance of large code bases.

Nice to have
• MATLAB experience;
• Experience with model driven engineering / modelling.

Personal skills

ASML is a highly dynamic environment, which requires you to be a good communicator, team player, to take initiative and to be result oriented. You are a critical thinker and pay attention to every detail of your work and you leave no room for errors.

Context of the position

This position is within the Software Metrology Department, which is a part of the sector Development & Engineering.

Other information
