Introduction to the job

Do you know how to secure the quality of the metrology software that we rollout to our Yieldstar systems in the field? And what our field engineers need to successfully implement the new features and fixes towards our customers? If so then this role of Competence Engineer Metrology Software at CS is just the opportunity for you.

The sector Customer Support (CS) is responsible for the maintenance, repair and continuous improvement of ASML systems at customer locations, as well as transferring all relevant knowledge and supporting the customer in the use of these systems in his production process.
