Introduction to the job

Within the ASML development organization for EUV, our Machine Conditioning (MC) department is responsible for Conditioning the machine.
This is accomplished by systems with controlled water cooling and controlled UHP clean gas flows. Most of the systems are developed with the help of subcontractors for both design and manufacturing. Additionally, the used flows (water and air) should not induce or transport any critical vibration to the system.

You will be responsible for maintaining these used flow (air and water) systems. You'll lead a team of specialists & subcontractors to perform the specification, and functional integration of these systems.
