Introduction to the job

You will be working in the virtual compute platform (VCP). This platform is developed inside ASML to host compute and analytics applications that aim to improve the yield in the semiconductor factories of our customers.

These applications take data from ASML equipment. They combine this data to real time production corrections. The corrections are sent back to the ASML production equipment. Failure of the platform has high impact. It would mean failure of the customers (tsmc, Samsung, Intel etc.) production facility.

The on-premise platform is currently developed based on DC/OS. We are in the process of migrating to Kubernetes. We develop the platform aspects in our team. Scheduling of resources, containerization, fail-over and data collection from scanner and measurement devices inside the fab. We have an up time expectation of 4 nine’s.

Installations and upgrades are automated with Ansible. Other technologies you may encounter are Spark for data processing, Kafka for notifications and high volume data ingestion. Hadoop and HBASE are used for data storage. Hyper converged CEPH storage is one of the candidates to replace the HDP stack.
