ASML is hiring!

For the next generation of Lithography systems we are working on, the manufacturability and availability will be more important than ever. To achieve this we need architects that take ownership of a large module on all aspects: both performance and industrialization.

Traditionally ASML is very strong in performance, but less on industrialization in the early design phase. So we need an architect who both understands performance and industrialization, to secure that requirements on all aspects are met.

Job Mission

Take ownership of a large production module (like metro frame assembly) or milestone (like mechanical install). Write EPS/EDS with industrialization requirements, which are needed to for flawless integration and high quality of the production.

Examples: qualification strategy, configuration, modularity, integration sequence, transport specs, incoming quality parts, tools, commonality, safety, self-diagnosis, recovery strategy, etc.

Also take part in the architect and system engineering discussions on performance, to find optimal concept solutions balanced over all aspects. Prevent sub optimized solutions, drive for maximum commonality.

Job Description

  • Write EPS & EDS of the production module. Cascade & follow-up on requirements.
  • Perform studies. Find optimal (well balanced) solutions on all aspects.
  • Regular reviews/ carousels with architects of modules on the production module.
  • Review new concepts & design changes on industrialization aspects.
  • Identify and solve cross-project issues. Involve SE in case of important trade offs.
  • Define KPI’s. Regular assess status on meeting al requirements. Identify main risks.
  • Define (and organize) test plan to validate system architecture.


Masters. Preferably in Mechanics or Industrialization.


  • At least 2 years of working experience as architect, alternatively 5 years’ experience as production or sequence engineer.
  • Industrialization of large modules or machines.
  • Writing requirement documents.
  • Preferably at least 2 years of working experience at / for ASML.

Personal skills

  • Helicopter view - easily can determine priorities and main risks.
  • Strong interpersonal skills - can easily cooperate with many parties (SE, architects, factory, delivering projects, management).
  • Pro-active in finding risks and opportunities regarding high quality products.
  • Assertive - starts pushing in case of low quality solutions.

Context of the position

You will be part of the Mechanical Layout (ML) project, which is amongst others responsible for the mechanical system architecture. The team doesn’t deliver hardware themselves, but has an overall responsibility during the whole V-cycle, that the total system can be build, transported, installed and serviced in a safe and efficient way.
