Introduction to the job

Would you like to work in a multidisciplinary team, working on cutting edge technology, providing
innovative wafer fab solutions to our customer’s challenges?

Role and responsibilities

As an Applications Design Engineer Alignment you contribute to the improvement of on-product overlay by developing and integrating wafer fab applications that optimize the alignment betweenlayers, consisting of printed features on product wafers and thus contributing to customer’s yield and profitability.

You will be responsible to design, integrate and verify alignment control solutions that are developed across multiple development teams. You will support these development teams by providing overviews with technical dependencies, by supporting early evaluations at customers and returning the feedback to the development teams, and by identifying,
addressing and reducing risks and verifying final product performance including proof book data

You are responsible for creating and refining ASML’s application products that will improve the on-product performance of our customers and do this in close collaboration with the customer, and connected to the introduction of a new technology node in production of the customer. Your proposals for application product improvement can cover a wide variety of solutions concerning process fingerprint root cause analysis, choices in process control strategies, metrology mark choice and design and process optimization. The findings will also be used for improvement in the scanner modules.

In this job you will:

- Maximize the application of ASML products to the benefit of the customer;
- Participate actively in identifying future product features and new application product development;
- You’ll also be responsible for designing and prototyping models in Matlab;
- You’ll also be responsible for customer data analysis;
- Deliver validated product improvement proposals that can be implemented by software engineers.

You will combine your creative problem-solving abilities and analytical thinking to develop and integrate innovative control solutions and to resolve disturbances quickly and if needed to come up with mitigation solutions to ensure program continuation.

Education and experience

MSc. Or BSc. degree in Physics, Mathematics or Engineering (Mechanical, Optical, Electrical, Chemical), with a solid background in statistics, data analysis, optics, semiconductor process technology or semiconductor device physics.

We are looking for people with 0-5 years of experience in an industrial research, development, or process control organization and preferably experience with overlay and/or wafer alignment within the semiconductor industry.
