When people think ‘software’, they often think of companies like Google or Microsoft. Even though ASML is classified as a hardware company, we in have for instance one of the world´s largest and most pioneering Java communities. At ASML, our software teams create and implement solutions that runs in the most modern semiconductor fabs in the world, helping our customers like Samsung, Intel and TSMC make computer chips faster, smaller, and more efficient. Here, we’re always pushing the boundaries of what’s possible.
Key in these software solutions are mathematical models based on algorithms that are used to interpret data collected during the chip production process in order to determine the performance of the process and optimize it if needed. For the team working on the development and implementation of these algorithms we arefor an Algorithms Developer.
