Are you challenged by demanding projects in a multidisciplinary context? Do you have the capabilities and the drive to provide effective solutions to complex technical problems under challenging time constraints? Are you able to manage the gap between system performance of our scanners and what is needed for our customers?

Please contact us today. We have exciting opportunities for DUV Lithography System Performance Engineers in ASML’s Performance & Integration System Performance department.

Job Mission
The demand on focus-performance for the lithographic steps is determined by the design of the chip. As a Senior System Performance Focus Design Engineer you take a leading role in the development of ASML products by testing, analyzing, qualifying, troubleshooting and reporting either one or a combination of these system performance items. You drive inventing and specifying improvements within the restrictions imposed by system specifications, costs and planning considerations. We are responsible for the performance of the systemas a whole.

  • Deliver input to ASML’s product performance roadmap.

  • 2-5 years of experience with ASML scanners and/or the performance of the system, system modules or applications.
  • Solid theoretical and/or experimental skills, supported by mathematical modeling, statistics and model verification (experience with MatLab or similar tool is a pre).
  • Strong analytical ability with a pragmatic attitude, broad scope and team-player.


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.
