Introduction to the job

Within D&E, the Defectivity Department within the Machine Conditioning cluster is responsible for making sure the ASML-products have a high-quality output (yield). Any contaminant needs to be prevented since it can create defects in the end-product. As defectivity performance engineer you will be actively involved in the integration and qualification of the ASML products.

Role and responsibilities

We are looking for an all-round defectivity engineer, who will participate in:

  • Setting up test plans, execution of these tests in the cleanroom.
  • Data analysis.
  • Engage in root cause analysis and understand the various sources that cause issues.
  • Support customer and factory issues and escalations.
  • Development of new tests.
  • This work will be in a dynamic environment; both on the topics that need to be worked on and the boundary conditions for the tests themselves are changing often. Linking macro-scale items (for example air/ water flows) to micro-scale defects has proven to be challenging.
  • You will work in multi-disciplinary teams, together with other projects responsible for hardware and software modules, system engineering and marketing. You will need imagination and creativity, as well as analytical skills to drive defectivity qualification and trouble-shooting in case of deviations. You need to be assertive while also being a team player and build on the knowledge and help from other specialists within the ASML community.

Education and experience

Education and experience
A degree in (applied) physics, material science, chemistry or data-driven engineering.
