Introduction to the job

ASML IT supports information management, infrastructure and automation and optimization of key business processes across ASML. These services are mission-critical for ASML’s internal and external activities. The goal of the IT organization is to deliver robust and reliable services as well as adding value to the ASML organization through projects and innovation. ASML IT accelerates the rollout of state-of-the-art technology into business-enabling services, with business and IT colleagues working closely together. This will improve efficiency of business today and allows us to explore cutting edge technology that helps transform the business to effectively meet (near) future business needs. We see exciting new opportunities for IT to support ASML’s growth ambition.

IT governance and landscape
The ASML IT governance and organization is straight forward and mainly controlled centrally. There are some exceptions in the regions especially around former acquisitions which still run their own IT applications, but the rest is all centrally driven (design, application development, support, etc.).
The 3 major ASML systems of record are:

  • Siemens Teamcenter (PLM system);
  • SAP (ECC, S4 / HANA suite);
  • Microsoft Office suite.

The ASML IT landscape is vast and contains modern state of the art technology and platforms as well as large legacy environments. Legacy environments are still highly valued and fulfill critical roles in many key business processes. Gradual and controlled landscape redesign and renewal are part of the architectural priorities. To some extend the legacy systems are there to stay to support the installed base of ASML.
