Introduction to the job

Would you like to understand and improve a complex high power laser system? Do you have a creative way of thinking and do you like to be challenged technically and personally in a dynamic environment? If so then you will enjoy working in our EUV Source Laser department! It’s a great opportunity for professional development and personal growth.

As a design engineer automation you are, from a technical perspective, involved in the work of a multidisciplinary product development team (physics, automation, software and industrialization) that designs and improves calibration, performance and diagnostics (CPD) tests for the source laser modules in the EUV Source. Make it operator friendly, stable and reliable, achieve sort time to market and rapid update cycles when needed. In this process you will be involved in creation of CPDs for new systems, as well as formulating improvement proposals for existing platforms. During these activities, you will be cooperating with other disciplines and sectors.
