Introduction to the job

Would you like to be involved at all stages of the software development process - specifying, designing, testing and integrating the advanced software for use in our world-leading products? Do you enjoy software development and would you like to expand your skill set and see your programming efforts through to commercial, external customer driven, deliverables? Then this is an exciting opportunity for you to apply.

Role and responsibilities

Job Mission
As part of ASML’s Machine Control & Infrastructure Department, you will develop and build software solutions that are instrumental to have our lithographic machines operating very productive while maintaining nanometer accuracy and making sure that the system interfaces are consistent and in accordance with the industry high standards. Since the use of data to achieve optimal performance and diagnostics is becoming a more important, even crucial, part of our business proposition, you will be part of the (large) data challenges in Machine Control. You will be able to shape the future of data in Machine Control and adjacent

As software is an integrating competency, it is an essential added value for ASML. You will be involved at all stages of the software development process; specifying, designing, testing and integrating the advanced software for use in our world-leading products.

Job Description
You will be responsible for creating clear specifications on data and software requirements, making efficient design choices, to 'make it happen' by also implementing the design and verify the implementation. You will also (in future) be working with physicist and analysts, helping them with retrieving data from various sources, determining the best data structure for domain- and data-analysis. You will later design and implement scalable data processing pipelines to run queries and algorithms against the
data for predictive analytics, and machine learning.

Next to this, you will be responsible for providing effort estimates for the work at hand and identify dependencies on others. Together with your scrum master and scrum team you will schedule your activities and agree on when to deliver the required specifications and deliverables. The software delivered is documented and qualified by means of automated test cases.

Education and experience

- Bachelor or Master level with an education in Computer Science or Informatics combined with Data Science or a related technical field.
- Knowledge of data engineering & management, data security and data policy related subjects, like on-product performance, encryption, authentication, etcetera.
- Demonstrable expertise in modern data-processing and -analysis applications and usage thereof.
- Familiar with scripting languages (Python, Julia)
- Fluent in C++, C, object oriented design & programming, Unix/Linux, Python, and software configuration management.
- Familiar with different database architectures (SQL, MongoDB, etc)
- Experience with the Hadoop ecosystem (HBase, Spark etc)
- Experienced in working in SAFe or Agile team environment and applying lean practices.


You should first be passionate about technology and you should be excited by the idea that your work
will impact millions of end-users worldwide. We are looking for someone who has a deep technical and data experience but at the same time likes to communicate with other departments and wants to understand how complex systems work. You are analytical, product and quality-oriented. You have a keen eye for detail. You are used to work in a highly complex and procedural environment. To you, proper code documentation is mandatory and you like to keep your work with a high level of structure and clarity. You like to work in a team with many senior design engineers with whom you can exchange technical ideas and debate upon the best solution for each project.

Other information

Within ASML, the sector Development & Engineering (D&E) is responsible for the development of ASML products. Within this sector the department Machine Control & Infrastructure (MCI) is responsible for the design, implementation and maintenance of the high level control and data access software of the complex lithographic machines. ASML creates high tech machines; software engineers from MCI are facing several aspects of production control, data management and interface control. A huge code base is maintained and under strict configuration management to provide maximum commonality between different machine types.
Ensuring that the existing behavior of the system remains as is, while introducing new functionality is a key competence in this position. The software engineer works closely together with other software engineers to define the optimal solution for ASML. The software engineer owns one or more software components and defines improvements that can be taken along in projects when the opportunity arises.
