Other job categories




In April 2021 EXE has started production of its first EXE prototypes.
The EXE will be built according to a production process where the EXE is split up into multiple Mini Machines (e.g. modular building), reducing cycle time because Mini Machines can be built and qualified in parallel.
Once qualified these Mini Machines will be internally transported to a build cabin. In these cabins each Mini Machine will become part of a full functional machine (system). This entire system is assembled, tested and qualified before leaving the cleanroom towards the customer.

The EXE will be produced in a new factory as part of the EUV Factory organization. The goal of this factory is to bring this product from Proto to Volume production. EXE will be organized as a LEAN Factory with Technicians working in a Natural team setup.
For the Factory organization we are looking for a Team Leader production.
