As the Customer Support (CS) Competence Engineer for Control Software Release you are the technical interface for Patterning Control Software between the CS Field organization and the different sectors at ASML Headquarters in Veldhoven with Development & Engineering (D&E) System Test & Integration (STI) as main counterpart. You use your understanding of the way-of-working in the field, your technical knowledge and your communication skills to drive for efficient solutions which are needed to reach the operational targets of our installed base. This involves validating quality and rolling out solutions for multiple Patterning Control software releases (LIS server, setup, analytics, LDP and OTAS).

You make sure that the CS Field organization is prepared for their job by securing the quality and completeness of the Service Mix (e.g. release notes, install instruction, interface delta documents) and sharing knowledge.

You will secure quality of the new software by reviewing alpha test results, understanding of possible dependencies with other SW releases and risks for backwards incompatibility, creating a beta test plan in collaboration with domain experts, coordinating the beta test and preparing go/no-go decision for customer patch release. You identify and drive improvements of the release cycle by setting up and continuously improving the release process. Some of your main responsibilities include:

  • Validate Software quality;
  • Create beta test plans for new control software release, via CS Apps engineers;
  • Handshake and validate Service Mix of new products and functionalities;
  • Validate and support roll-out of solutions to the Field, including knowledge transfer;

  • You have 3 years or more work experience in a challenging environment with high tech products and complex processes;
  • SW testing competence and/or relevant work experience in one or more relevant work domains at ASML like Development & Engineering or Customer Service is considered a plus.


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.
To thrive in this job, you’ll need the following skills:

  • Remain persistent: Ability to picture the intended outcome, search for opportunities to learn and stay focused on overcoming setbacks to achieve your goals;
  • Flexible mindset: Adjust to coordinating and collaborating on different projects with different stakeholders involved, taking the necessary actions to define alternatives to ensure quality under changing circumstances;
  • Customer focused: Understanding customer needs and expectations and being able to manage these expectations through validation and specification;
