Introduction to the job

ASML brings together the most creative minds in science and technology to develop lithography machines that are key to producing faster, cheaper and 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 located in the heart of the Eindhoven region, also known as ‘Brainport’, Europe’s top tech hub.

Within ASML, the sector Development and Engineering is responsible for the specification, design, integration, qualification, and sustaining of all ASML products. In our department of IT Product & Technology (P&T) SW Platform we are looking for an experienced IT infra specialist who likes working in a multidisciplinary team and who would like to be part of one of the biggest high-tech communities worldwide.

Role and responsibilities

The Greenhouse project goal is replacing the ClearCase environment by a state-of-the art software development environment. The project is called Greenhouse because the new environment will evolve step by step on a new foundation. This software development environment services a large community with over 2500 active developers.
The software being developed is deployed to the ASML machines at the customer. This means you will be working on enabling the heartbeat of some the most advanced technologies on the planet.

We, Greenhouse Infra Team, develop and maintain infrastructure services, a set of ‘API's’ for Greenhouse demand that can be consumed by the Greenhouse functional teams.
In that sense we are a DevOps teams. We build it, we ship it, we run it.
