Introduction to the job

Are you a passionate job starter with a passion for IT Security and a curiosity for how things work? We are looking for you to join our growing Cyber Defense Incident response team.

ASML 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.

The Cyber Defense Center (CDC) within ASML (Veldhoven office) minimizes the damage caused by threat actors bypassing ASML’s preventative security controls through real-time detection & response and therefore protecting ASML assets. By constantly acting on alerts and by improving and adapting our monitoring controls we enable ASML to operate in an increasingly hostile environment. We work together closely with other security functions and other ASML teams utilizing our shared in-depth knowledge in this effort to secure the business for all our stakeholders. To improve our Incident Response services we are looking for a skilled professional in this area to complement and support our growing team.
