Job Category



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.

“This position requires access to controlled technology, as defined in the Export Administration Regulations (15 C.F.R. § 730, et seq.). Qualified candidates must be legally authorized to access such controlled technology prior to beginning work. Business demands may require ASML to proceed with candidates who are immediately eligible to access controlled technology.”

Job Mission

The EUV Source Performance team in San Diego operates in a fast-paced, uniquely innovative, and challenging environment to deliver new-to-industry products supporting the commercialization of EUV technology by ASML.The Source Performance team is an inter-disciplinary group responsible for securing the performance of EUV light source products at system level. The complexity of the EUV source puts exciting and challenging demands on the Source Performance Analytics Engineer, who will be engaged in data engineering and data science efforts used to drive performance improvements of EUV source products.

The person in this role will serve as the primary interface between the Source Performance (SP) department, Customer Support (CS), and Information Technology (IT) to translate engineering’s data and analytics requirements into an actionable roadmap. The candidate will have extensive engineering experience designing or supporting product development and an affinity towards big data and advanced analytics techniques. The successful candidate will ensure continued access and quality of the fundamental data streams and infrastructures required for the SP team to execute its mission.

The role requires a willingness to develop a mastery of complex experimentation of significant technical depth. To be successful, the candidate must combine strong numerical analysis skills, using Matlab, Python, Spark, etc. to translate large sets of data into actionable results. In addition, to be effective in the role candidates must possess interpersonal skills to cross functional boundaries and to build constructive and effective relationships across the organization.
