ASML is one of the world’s leadingmanufacturers of lithography systems that help enable Moore’s Law and thecreation of increasingly powerful and capable electronic devices. Our SanDiego-based light source division, Cymer, is renowned for developing bothdeep ultraviolet (DUV) lithography light sources and next generation extremeultraviolet (EUV) light sources. As the world’s leading semiconductorequipment manufacturer, ASML enables chipmakers to produce cheaper, speedierchips – and to produce them faster – thereby enabling all the technology youuse today. The systems we produce integrate several large and sophisticatedmachines, themselves each a feat of engineering innovation, precision, andspeed. Hermes Microvision, Inc. (HMI), an ASML company, is a leading supplierof advanced E-beam inspection and pattern verification systems used foradvanced semiconductor devices. HMI has multiple years of e-beam applicationexperience and leadership in semiconductor factories, focused on highresolution and voltage contrast imaging. As part of ASML, HMI will boostASML’s holistic lithographic portfolio of (i) lithography exposure systems,(ii) computational lithography and (iii) metrology. Between these threecornerstones ASML offers application products for process window enhancement,control and detection. We are located in the heart of San Jose and growing!One Company, One Goal, Limitless Innovation. It's our people that make thedifference. “This position requires access to controlled technology, asdefined in the Export Administration Regulations (15 C.F.R. § 730, et seq.).Qualified candidates must be legally authorized to access such controlledtechnology prior to beginning work. Business demands may require ASML toproceed with applicants who are immediately eligible to access controlled technology.”
