Introduction to the job

We are Applications - a novel business line within ASML, one of the world market leaders in scanning lithography technology. We create full-stack software products that run in the most modern Semiconductor Fabs in the world, and we are always pushing the boundary of what is possible.

Our scope is Big Data and how we can make best use of them to allow our customers to gain a deeper understanding into their vast datasets. We believe that data has a story to tell and a proper visualization is the means to achieve that. Are you writing software that tells a story in a user-friendly manner? Then this is the place to be!

Role and responsibilities

As a Front-end Web Architect, you will be at the core of our data visualizations activities. You have final responsibility for the front-end work of our data analytics platform, which means that together with the UI/UX designers and software developers you will work on translating data and information into interactive graphical representation. You will be a key driver in improving our platform to guarantee the best possible user experience.

You will be part of the Analytics and Visualization group. This group is responsible for design, implementation, testing and integration of (Big) Data Analytics Platform tailored for Wafer Fab application. The platform enables internal value stream teams to deliver features to our customers who operate semiconductor fabs. You will work in a fast-paced and agile development environment using the latest software development technologies and infrastructure.

  • Define requirements and architectural decomposition that realizes requirements defined by our System Engineers. Capture those in clear and easy to understand documents, so that the teams can focus on detailed design, implementation and testing, instead of asking you clarifying questions.
  • Review detailed designs and advise teams on improvements
  • Create work breakdowns that lead to efficient execution that removes risks fast.
  • Give high-level estimates for future work, and make sure that estimates you give are grounded in reality – check regularly with the teams & calibrate your intuition and estimation methods to help create predictable plans.
  • Create and collaborate on creation of proofs-of-concept, to evaluate new technologies or design directions. Make decisions based on facts, not folklore.
  • Dig into the codebase of your teams. Fix some issues. Refactor an interface. Experience the same tools, procedures & environments as the development teams do, so you can advise on how to make them better and more efficient. You need to be hands-on, not on the critical path of any project, but always digging deeper and improving the status quo.
  • Collaborate with other architects so that our products and frameworks are consistent and well-engineered.
  • Guard the consistency of technical realization of software within your area of responsibility. Make sure the software fulfils license obligations, is well-tested, with minimal technical debt, works well with CI/CD pipelines and is internally consistent.
