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 our holistic lithography solutions by developing products that work alongside our lithography systems to help them perform better and improve the patterning process.

BL Apps supports several steps of our customers’ manufacturing process, 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 and to improve the patterning process.
ASML’s BL Apps products are critical elements in the semiconductor manufacturing process.

The System Test and Integration (STI) team is responsible for:
- The integration of software deliverables into a software package (release/patch)
- The testing those package at the system level

As System Test Engineer you will test the software packages at system level before software is released to ASML customers for beta test.Your mission is to provide the test team with tests so they can meet the test coverage requirements. Focusing on test automation you will deliver these results in an ever shorter period of time.

Role and responsibilities

As a System Test Engineer you are a member of the Applications System Test & Integration team.
This means we’re looking for somebody who will:
