Introduction to the job

ASML TW, including its affiliates and subsidiaries, bring together the most creative minds in science and technology to develop lithography machines that are key to producing faster, cheaper, more energy-efficient microchips. We design, develop, integrate, market and service these advanced machines, which enable our customers - the world’s leading chipmakers - to reduce the size and increase the functionality of their microchips, which in turn leads to smaller, more powerful consumer electronics. Our headquarters are in Veldhoven, Netherlands, and we have 18 office locations around the United States including main offices in Chandler, Arizona, San Jose and San Diego, California, Wilton, Connecticut, and Hillsboro, Oregon.

Role and responsibilities

The mission of Senior/Principal Application Software architect is to be successful in driving and enabling our E-Beam tool’s software product development for Inspection and Metrology application. As an in-depth domain knowledge in EBI inspection/metrology applications and understanding the software design, you will act as the technical interface for Program and System Engineer as a product-level software architect, between Application engineers and software developers as functional-level architect, specialized in inspection process, metrology flow, algorithm validation, software interface design and software functional requirement analysis.

To focus on software product design, you need to communicate with Program and System engineer to define software product functionalities, analysis Application engineer’ s requirements on flow design, software data handling and software application technical roadmap planning guidance.
