Innovation is ASML’s core business! Our machines are extremely innovative but also within the IT organization we want to work on and with the latest technologies. Do you have affinity with the newest technologies, like AR/VR, simulation, Cloud or data science? Or do you prefer a role as scrum master? Start your professional career in our two-year IT Graduate Program within the ASML IT Organization!

Job Mission

ASML leads the worldwide development, production and sales of high-end lithography systems for the semiconductor industry. In short, we make the machines that make computer chips, or integrated circuits. We build some of the most amazing, complex machines that you will ever see – and the software to run them – to develop smaller, faster and still more affordable chips. It is because of our machines that the world’s technology has steadily evolved.

ASML IT develops and delivers automated and digital services that are absolutely mission critical for ASML’s internal and external activities. These services support information management, infrastructure, automation and optimization of key business processes across ASML.

The goal of the IT organization is to continuously improve our business capabilities while at the same time delivering a 24x7 global IT landscape. We accelerate the rollout of state-of-the-art technology into business-enabling services, with business and IT colleagues working closely together. This improves efficiency of business and allows us to explore cutting edge technology that helps transform the business to effectively meet (near) future business needs. We see exciting new opportunities for IT to support ASML’s growth ambition. You build it, you own it!

Job Description

During the two-year program, you will develop a deep understanding of working agile within a dynamic and innovative IT environment. You will land in a position related to one of the new technologies, which will be combined with a development program. Together we will match your preferences, motivation, skills and experience to one of these roles. Examples of possible opportunities:

• AR/VR: Become part of our Augmented- / Virtual Reality team and work on innovative AR/VR applications. You will develop yourself to become an expert on Virtual and Augmented Reality solutions. Are you up for a challenge in these extended realities? Being part of a team, you learn how to master the AR/VR technology solutions, integrate them into the IT architecture and identify new business value opportunities. You will also play an important role in the implementation of these solutions within the ASML organization.
• Simulation: Work as a software engineer on a cutting edge Simulation platform. You and your team provide the Simulation IT infrastructure for analysts, from application deployment to High Performance Compute capabilities. You will collaborate with our internal Development & Engineering stakeholders to help the IT team create an automated test environment that allows us to troubleshoot application functionality and performance, but also improve the quality of IT software delivery without the need to claim valuable time from analysts during tests.
• Mendix Cloud platform: Help deploy the future of low-code development across ASML.
You will go, as member of the Mendix Cloud platform team, on a journey to further develop and ramp up the Mendix low code platform within the ASML organization. Low code development is 10-12 times faster than regular code base development and developed apps are very easy to adjust as they are modelled all the way down. You will also get introduced to Azure Cloud, SAP Cloud Platform and Mendix Cloud, as ASML has a multicloud strategy.
• Big Data & Analytics Innovation Lab:
Work with cutting edge Data Science- and Data Engineering technologies to drive value from Advanced Analytics. You will deal with everything in the Data & Analytics lifecycle and you will drive your own use cases from idea to industrialization. Do you like to code and are you absolutely enthusiastic about the value (big) data & analytics can deliver? The BDA Innovation Lab applies modern Data Science, Data Engineering and Machine Learning technologies on a daily basis. Together with her internal customers, the Innovation Lab proves the value of these technologies for the entire ASML organization.
• Data Management: Help ASML become more data-driven and work on our Data Management roadmap.
You will guide the ASML organization towards a mature way of managing data. Bring data management into practice and support the business with Master Data improvement initiatives, embedding the responsibilities into the organizational domain itself. By supporting our organization to effectively implement our data management strategy, you and your team members are making sure ASML reaches its future objectives with the help of data.
• Scrum Master: Become an expert in working Scrum and be a driving force behind our agile transition.
Agile is the way to go! In the role of Scrum Master you will train your team on scrum practices, facilitate scrum events and continuously stimulate your team to improve to become autonomous yet highly aligned. You will be helping your team to reach new heights with regards to predictability, quality and collaboration within the team, but also within the ART.
