A great opportunity for a brilliant mind

One of the reasons why ASML has already attracted some of the world's best minds is the very nature of what we do; the ICs that we help to make impact on every level of society. You could say that we help to make healthcare systems more affordable for example or transport systems greener and more energy-efficient. You could also say that we make education more accessible to everyone. We make these things happen because microchips are at the heart of all electronic things, and we create the machines that not only help making microchips, but our creative technology continues to make them smaller, faster and cheaper. And having an impact on almost every aspect of modern human life is a challenge that talented people seem to rise up to with enthusiasm.

This is more than just a career opportunity; it's a chance to make a real difference.

Hendrik Hans (26) from Medan (Indonesia): "My ideas about ASML changed totally. I was amazed about the nanotechnology that is involved in the production of chips. Without ever smaller components, we would still be walking around with cell phones in size shoebox."


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. You’ll have the flexibility and trust to choose how best to tackle tasks and solve problems.
