ASML US brings together the most creative minds in science and technology to develop lithography machines that are key to producing faster, cheaper, more energy-efficient microchips. We design, develop, integrate, market and service these advanced machines, which enable our customers - the world’s leading chipmakers - to reduce the size and increase the functionality of their microchips, which in turn leads to smaller, more powerful consumer electronics. Our headquarters are in Veldhoven, the Netherlands, and we have 18 office locations around the United States including main offices in Chandler Arizona, San Jose and San Diego California, Wilton Connecticut, and Hillsboro Oregon.

Job Mission

ASML isan industry leader in Computational Lithography for integrated circuits. Our Tachyon™ platform enables capabilities that address chip design, photomask making and wafer printing for semiconductor manufacturing. ASML’s Fab Products enable Lithography optimization for ourleading photolithography tools.

In Fab products, we create software to enable advanced node semiconductor lithography by improving process control. In this team, we develop software to design metrology targets, simulate their measurement performance, and select the best candidates to be used for production.

Excellent candidates will not only drive improvements to the software application, but also identify new approaches to improve metrology.

Job Description

In the software research and development (R&D) team, you will be a key member to develop high quality software and contribute to all phases of the development process from designing to release. You must be responsible for independently developing and testing the Algorithms and turn general requirement definitions into functioning modules. An ideal candidate should exhibit strategic thinking, be self-motivated and collaborative with team members.

In this role, you will review and analyze requirements, assess the impact of changes to software, provide estimates of work effort, design and develop software, and write unit-tests.
