Introduction to the job

Maximizing yield, manufacturing speed, efficiency and reliability are among the key parameters for customers in high-volume chip manufacturing. Business Line Applications (BL Apps) extends ASML holistic lithography solutions by developing products that work alongside our lithography systems, in order to help them performing better and improving the patterning process.

BL Apps supports several manufacturing process steps in our customers’ fabs, from R&D to mass production. The portfolio of products includes metrology, inspection, computational lithography, data analytics and control software to quickly and accurately measure, optimize and control overlay and imaging performance on silicon wafers.

ASML’s Applications products are critical elements in the semiconductor manufacturing process.

Role and responsibilities

The proto Integrator (PI) works closely with the Project Leader to plan and drive the execution of system integration activities, the so called High Level Integration Step (HLIS) packages on the proto Systems.
You interface with D&E Project/Team leaders, Proto Engineers, System Test Engineers andProject Integrators.
Overall responsibility is to manage the pre-requisites for the HLIS packages and to deliver and qualify an optimized HLIS sequence and recovery, taking into account dependencies, resourcing, tooling, materials and other prerequisites. The Proto Integrator will report daily progress/delays and escalate issues as they surface.

Daily management of proto integration:
- Maintain a daily plan for a couple of proto systems based on the overall integration plan and test claims from development projects.
- Define milestones and deliverables with the team of proto engineers and make sure these are met.
- Manage the execution of the daily plan: set priorities and adjust plan in case of disturbances.
- Strong interaction with the delivering development projects is required. Often this is a combined effort with a System Test Engineer (who maintains an overview of functional dependencies).
- Procure tools and parts required to perform the planned integration tasks.
- Create and maintain a forward looking mid-term proto integration plan in line with the product development master plan.
- Maximize the utilization of the proto systems.
- Manage improvements in the cleanroom (e.g. safety).

Issue Management:
- Make sure all issues found on proto systems are properly diagnosed and reported
- Chase and implement solutions.
- Chair product integration issue management meeting

Machine performance and configuration control:
- Plan the hardware and software configuration of the proto system over time.
- Manage differences between configuration-to-be-built and configuration-as-build by frequent implementation of engineering changes through upgrades
- Make sure the correct procedures and recoveries are available to bring the machine to the specified performance level.

Drive content of integration:
- know the content of the integration steps to be executed at the system. Drive the progress of integration with technical knowhow and report on progress to stakeholders.

Education and experience

- BSc/MSc in electronics/physics/mechatronics
- Proven background of at least 3-5 years in relevant multidisciplinary technical working environment
- Knowledge of system integration competences, e.g. dependency planning in V-model and complex system troubleshooting and diagnosis
- Experience with leading a team and/or small projects


Working at the cutting edge of tech, you’ll always have new challenges and new problems to solve – and working together is the only way to do that. You won’t work in a silo. Instead, you’ll be part of a creative, dynamic work environment where you’ll collaborate with supportive colleagues. There is always space for creative and unique points of view.

Other information

The position is in the System Integration group within the AD DE Process Window Detection Software Department in the business line Applications.
The System Integration group is part of D&E (Design and Engineering) and responsible for the integration of modules into a proto system and prove that the system can meet the specifications. Proto systems are used to verify the design concept at system level, which includes hardware and software. The end goal is to find all issues before the new system is pilot, i.e. in the factory and at the customer.
