Introduction to the job

What is your dream role as an experienced technical engineer? Let’s define it together!

ASML is a world-leader in lithography, and R&D is crucial in developing the right solutions for and with our customers. The Applications D&E department aims to be our customers’ first choice providing self-learning metrology and fab solutions for efficient control, faster ramp-up and optimal output. All development activities need to be conducted within the constraints of specification, time and budget as demanded by market conditions. Additionally, a technical consulting activity for our customers is operated, that designs and helps implementing integral solutions for On-Product Performance (OPP) based on the products developed by ASML.

Role and responsibilities

Our highly qualified people develop & deliver integrated metrology and control solutions to optimize the yield of semiconductor device manufacturing.

As a Functional Engineer, you will design, integrate, verify and implement control solutions that improve the performance on the product of our customers. Your scope goes beyond the performance of ASML’s lithography equipment.
