Introduction to the job

A Design Engineer within Development and Engineering (D&E) organization leading new application solution development and support product architecture. You will be representing as an expert in developing EB based applications solutions, working closely with Marketing, System Engineering and Customer Services to define development strategies.
The role demands you to innovate and deliver product design which you will need to fully utilize ASML techniques across multiple functional clusters and collaborate with different business units globally in order to provide the best possible product performance toward holistic litho solution.Furthermore, you will also play an important role to supports regular new function developments requested from customers via Marketing for capturing immediate business opportunity.

This position may require access to controlled technology, as defined in the Export Administration Regulations (15 C.F.R. § 730, et seq.). Qualified candidates must be legally authorized to access such controlled technology prior to beginning work. Business demands may require the Company to proceed with candidates who are immediately eligible to access controlled technology.

Role and responsibilities

As a Product architect, you will:
- Use Data Mining techniques (feature decomposition, Support Vector Machine, etc.) to extract dominant signatures such as EB imaging and alignment performance from SEM images
- Search for new SEM application opportunities on new technologies or novel platforms and feedback for algorithm development
- Interface between internal engineering team and external partner
- Engage with the customer for new business opportunities
- Manage communicating and implementing new applications/procedures to deliver new products/solution to increase SEM machine capabilities
- Support and lead new application/solution demo and application development activities
- Analyze, develop and transfer new applications/solution to customer support team
