Introduction to the job

Are you an experienced mechatronics engineer with affinity for Modelling and experimenting? Are your looking for a job where you can combine your analytical skills with hands on activities? And are you used to work in multidisciplinary teams? Then please have a close look at this position!

Role and responsibilities

Within this role you will increase the overall actuator competence within ASML by developing all technical and process competences required to design, produce, test and qualify linear electrical actuators.

You will:

  • Work in multidisciplinary project teams, aimed at Actuator Process development for existing processes and future actuators
  • Design, build and maintain test set-ups to qualify performance, endurance and other actuator parameters.
  • Execute testcases to validate electrical, thermal or functional performance of components and actuators.
  • Perform mechanical and electrical measurements on actuators and/or components used in linear actuators.
  • Build up and maintain specialist knowledge in the fields of actuator design, test setup, design of experiments.
  • Contribute to the actuator competency within ASML and execute parts of the actuator roadmap.

Education and experience

  • Master or experienced Bachelor in Mechanical Engineering, Applied Physics or Electronics, with a specialization in Mechatronics
  • Our preference goes out to candidates with a solid basis in mechatronics. Next to this data acquisition and test & measurement setup’s is required.
  • At least 8 years of work experience in technical environment, preferably hardware or manufacturing, is required.


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.

The department Mechatronics Systems Development within Bottom (BM) cluster is responsible for specification, design, integration and qualification of the mechatronics sub-systems, functions and components which are fitted into the end products. The main focus is on nanometer-accuracy positioning of high speed components. Control engineering, dynamics, actuator design, position measurement systems and material handling are part of this department’s main competences.

For these and other mechatronic applications linear electrical actuators are being used. The actuator lab secures and Develops Actuator Competences for Product Design, Quality and Manufacturability of Coil and Magnet Assemblies. ASML is known for its lithography systems- machines which combine state of the art optics with laser technology and powerful mechatronics modules.

This position requires access to U.S. controlled technology, as defined in the United States Export Administration Regulations. Qualified candidates must be legally authorized to access such U.S. controlled technology prior to beginning work. Business demands may require ASML to proceed with applicants who are immediately eligible to access U.S. controlled technology.

Please share your resume, cover letter & grade-list with us when applying for this position.
