Introduction to the job

ASML US, including its affiliates and subsidiaries, bring together the most creative minds in science and technology to develop lithography machines that are key to producing faster, cheaper, more energy-efficient microchips. We design, develop, integrate, market and service these advanced machines, which enable our customers - the world’s leading chipmakers - to reduce the size and increase the functionality of their microchips, which in turn leads to smaller, more powerful consumer electronics. Our headquarters are in Veldhoven, Netherlands, and we have 18 office locations around the United States including main offices in Chandler, Arizona, San Jose and San Diego, California, Wilton, Connecticut, and Hillsboro, Oregon.

The mission of the Mechanical Materials Engineer at ASML is to create incredible products using the latest technology and manufacturing techniques, while collaborating with a team of dedicated and high-performing technical experts.Quality is at the forefront of the engineering requirements for this group and we strive to provide the best performing and highest quality products within the scope of the program schedule.

This position may require access to controlled technology, as defined in the Export Administration Regulations (15 C.F.R. § 730, et seq.). Qualified candidates must be legally authorized to access such controlled technology prior to beginning work. Business demands may require the Company to proceed with candidates who are immediately eligible to access controlled technology.

Role and responsibilities

  • Assists with an assigned light source sub-system project through direct technical advice, specifications/design, approvals, and collaboration with Development Engineering team.
  • Assists in providing a broad Material engineering background and performs material engineering analysis/Impact, control material interactions of inert and hazardous gases, air and water handling for thermal management of equipment, mechanical constraints, design for manufacturability in low volume products.
  • They then work with the design team to design and execute experiments to find the root cause of the failures and then work toward finding solutions to fix the problems.
  • Assists in generating module or system concepts to meet product requirements.
  • Assumes engineering responsibility for component and subassembly test development, data acquisition, analysis, and reporting.
  • Works closely with cross-functional groups to qualify materials, perform life time testing, and improve performance of EUV source components. Validates concepts through experiments.
  • Independently investigates scientific and technical problems and challenges; evaluates and recommends solutions.
  • Build and operate vacuum & thermal test setup for different project and modules.
  • Qualifies materials, components, and processes for different parts of the EUV source.
  • Applies advanced experimental and analytical skills to define requirements and devise solutions to technical performance matters.
  • Obtains and analyzes data using materials characterization techniques (such as mechanical testing, including tensile, compressive, torsional, creep, fatigue, toughness and hardness testing; SEM/EDS; TEM; etc).
  • Documents work results with system requirements, design specifications, procedures, and training materials.
  • Manages work performed by outside labs to perform analysis on Droplet Generators. Assists in project planning including key deliverables, timeline, and budget.
  • Works with other Engineers analysts and CAD Designers for prototype and pilot detailed design.
  • Responsible for the research and selection of new suppliers with potential for turn-key provision of key subsystems.Responsible for providing technical expertise in the core technology area of the potential suppliers to reveal best design path and performance.
  • Interacts closely with development engineers, scientists, suppliers, and QA to resolve quality issues.
