Introduction to the job

Do you have a background in Mechatronics, Control, Dynamics, Mechanical engineering, Electrical engineering? And experience in requirements specification, design, and taking ownership of the development of a complex mechatronic module? Then this position can be very interesting for you!

Role and responsibilities

Define the architecture of a mechatronics module, including interfaces to other modules. Responsible for the mechatronics function, including architecture, specification, (contribute to) design, technical budget analysis, critical component selection, integration and verification. Your challenge will be to specify and investigate complex high precision mechatronics with picometer performance.

  • Work in multidisciplinary project teams, aimed at architecture and design of a mechatronics module function.
  • Lead, coach and develop employees within the team
  • Technically manage the design and development of mechatronic modules in collaboration with ASML main suppliers.
  • Has knowledge in the fields of Servo Control / Motion Control, mechanics, signal analysis and testing and basic knowledge of the areas software (rapid prototyping), (adaptive) optics, electronics, actuators, sensors and dynamics
  • Support of the mechatronics architecture design and trade-offs between mechanical, electronic, software competencies
  • Integration and test of the mechatronic modules: planning
  • Documentation of requirements, design, test procedures and verification.

Education and experience

  • Technical University masters/PhD in Mechanical engineering / Electrical engineering / Technical Physics
  • At least 8 years of experience in a similar role, preferably within ASML or in related high tech industry
  • Experience with design and realization of mechatronics systems.
  • Experience in multidisciplinary project work involving mechatronics, optics, electronics and software is a pre.
  • Skilled in Matlab and Matlab Simulink.


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.
