Introduction

ASML US, including its affiliates and subsidiaries, bring 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, 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

The mission of the team is to develop an in house high performance computation cluster system for high throughput eBeam inspection tool. The high performance computation system handles large data set, high data transfer rate and process computation heavy algorithms. Team is responsible for the design and implement a future proof software framework on top of cluster with dozens to hundreds or even more heterogeneous super-computer nodes. Review and collaborate with other functional groups on product requirements.

Ensure there is a platform where this software can run with high performance achieved and availability guaranteed. Design the software platform setup, the Computational Infrastructure virtualization layers, manages firmware updates, and provides a key set of numerical algorithm optimization services to manage the platform. The team is very strong on the technical aspects. A candidate with affinity towards team collaboration and technical excellency, picking up daily issues that arise and guide priority setting is encouraged to bring this forward.

This position may require 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 the Company to proceed with candidates who are immediately eligible to access controlled technology.

Job Description

The hands-on job of a software engineer for HPC platform is responsible for the design, review and collaboration with computation infrastructure team for a future proof cloud and virtual compute platform with optimization on both in-house and at HMI’s customers. The stability of the existing platforms in the field and the introduction of the new platform with all its new opportunities and issues. You are profound in troubleshooting virtual computing platform both software and hardware, container virtualization, network, and other software issues even if these go beyond the platform. Robust definition of software & platform development processes, install, and upgrade (ansible, K8s, Container, Docker, shell script) is one of your duties.
