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.

Job Mission

Are you the hands-on/experienced data engineer that can implement and maintain complex Big Data architectures? Are you able to apply the cutting-edge technologies and tools to build Big Data pipelines? Do you have the drive to exceed customer expectations, then read on!

You will be working in a multi-disciplinary team of data scientists, physicists, computer scientists, and engineers to uncover causal relationships between equipment parameters and system performance. Implement (un-)supervised machine learning models on the high-dimensional feature space of the most advanced microlithography machines around the globe. As a Data Engineering intern you will apply the latest technologies and tools to implement complex data platform architectures and pipelines. You will be closely working with domain/technical experts, platform architects, IT specialists, software developers, data scientists and analysts to drive successful implementation and maintenance of complex software solutions. On top of your profound technical capabilities, your success will strongly dependent on your interpersonal skills and your ability to communicate across disciplines. You will engage in understanding, defining and validating your solutions, in close cooperation with domain experts, stakeholders and Product Owner of the Advanced Data Analytics R&D team.
