Introduction to the job

Do you enjoy the challenges of improving the manufacturability and serviceability of complex and advanced lithography equipment? Do you have a strong vision on the industrialization and integration aspects of complex mechanical systems and are you able to bring your message across to different types of stakeholders within and outside ASML?

Then you will successfully fulfill the position of supplier quality engineering (SQE) industrialization architect!

Role and responsibilities

As supplier quality engineering (SQE) industrialization architect you will contribute to the development of products by specifying, integrating and verifying the industrialization requirements for complex multi-disciplinary mechanical parts and/or assemblies that are built at our supplier's factories.
You will be able to drive these industrialization requirements proactively into the architecture of designs and processes based on lessons learned and data from our suppliers, the factory and/or our customer sites. As supplier quality engineering (SQE) industrialization architect you will act as the technical lead (you will be the right hand of the team leader) from an industrialization point of view, from the early design phase until the use of the system at customer site. You will ensure that the owned module and related manufacturing/assembly process at the supplier meets all the industrialization requirements of ASML.

As supplier quality engineering (SQE) industrialization architect you'll:

  • Cooperate closely with suppliers, translate the overall functional design into an architecture that meets the requirements of quality, technology, cycle time, availability and cost of goods, align these requirements with stakeholders (such as: architects, supplier quality/manufacturing engineers, project/team leaders, sourcing, logistics, factory, suppliers)
  • Create and maintain technical product & process requirements documentation (such as: process FMEA, sequence overview) on industrialization requirements and deliverables
  • Oversee the implementation of industrialization requirements and budgets in the conceptual and detail designs
  • Verify and validate the supplier's performance during system integration (at the suppliers & ASML) and field feedback
  • Analyze and manage gaps between expected and actual performance and give direction for solutions
  • Document and present the current status and predicted results to projects and the wider organization
  • Maintain a database of "lesson learned" for future design and process improvements

Education and experience

  • Master's degree (or bachelor's degree with experience) within mechanical engineering, mechatronics, or other similar education
  • 15 years of experience in a service or production environment with high tech products and complex production processes
  • Proven track record in relation to industrialization, serviceability or availability, design engineering and supplier collaboration
  • Experience with or affinity with building complex parts and or integrated/high level modules
  • Six Sigma Green


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 as a supplier quality engineering (SQE) industrialization architect, you’ll need the following skills:

  • Strong preference for a candidate that masters the Dutch language (given most of of the supply base is located in the direct environment of ASML, the Netherlands)
  • Excellent analytical skills and “helicopter view”
  • Able to influence without power and speak up
  • Able to coach engineers
  • Self-propelling and entrepreneurial attitude
  • Strong communication, organizational, interpersonal and team building skills
  • Perseverance in situations when confronted with push back
