Introduction to the job

Do you enjoy mastering the technical complexities of a future precision engineered mechanical module? Would you also enjoy liaising between an ASML development team and an outside supplier – to make sure that what is desired is also what’s technically feasible? and when it’s not, can you take the lead in creating a solution? If so, we would like to meet you.

As supplier quality engineer you will ensure that parts and modules, which our design teams need will be ready and available at the moment we start manufacturing.

You will be involved at the very start of the design and development process – because we need to know months in advance that the performance parts we seek are not only feasible but are virtually 100% guaranteed. You will achieve this certainty not only by aiming at the highest engineering standards from world-leading suppliers, but also by understanding the technical limitations, and where necessary you will drive co-design initiatives and encourage engineers on both sides to seek alternative solutions. It’s a challenging position, but if you enjoy creative problem-solving and motivating others to do the same, then it’s also a highly rewarding job with plenty of pinnacles of satisfaction.

Role and responsibilities

You will be part of ASML’s Development & Engineering sector, which is responsible for driving industrialization into the early design of our products until the product is proven fully qualified for volume production with excellent quality by the supplier.

As supplier quality engineer you'll:

  • Contribute to the design phase during the New Product Introduction (NPI) process, give feedback on supply-chain related design choices, and assure early supplier involvement
  • Ensure operational excellence at suppliers to lead proven readiness for volume release using structured processes and methods including statistical analysis tools (SPC)
  • Ensure that suppliers adopt and use state-of-the-art technology to maximize the performance of our machines
  • Take responsibility for all supplier-related documentation during the development process
  • Identify and solve structural problems in depth
  • Handshaking with your volume-supply chain engineer (SCM) in the beginning of volume production

Education and experience

  • Bachelor or master's degree in mechanics or mechatronics.
  • Five years of experience in a high tech environment, preferably in Supply Chain Engineering closely linked to precision-mechanical design
  • Trained and experienced with quality systems - preferably Six Sigma, Green or Black Belt.


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:

  • Excellent social and communication skills in English
  • Team player, but also independent
  • Result driven, planning and prioritizing
  • Ready to work in a challenging and dynamic environment
  • All above based on solid knowledge and experience in mechanical engineering
