Introduction to the job

Do you want to get aboard and control our Wafer Stage to move as fast as possible at nanometer accuracy? As one of the Wafer Stage Control Design Engineers, you will be in the driver seat using your mechatronic knowledge with focus on control expertise to get there.

Role and responsibilities

Responsible for integration and qualification of the new Wafer Stage with emphasis on servo control performance, signal analysis, functional integration and troubleshooting. You do this by:

  • Working in multidisciplinary project teams, aimed at design, integration, qualification and troubleshooting of the Wafer Stage.
  • Building and maintaining specialist knowledge in the fields of Servo Control / Motion Control, signal analysis and testing and basic knowledge of the areas software, mechanics, electronics, actuators, sensors and dynamics.
  • Modeling and optimizing of sequences, functional and dynamic servo control loop behavior.
  • Supporting the wafer stage architectural design and trade-offs between mechanical, electronic, software competencies.
  • Integrating and testing the wafer stage: planning and execution.
  • Documentation of specifications, design, and test results.

Education and experience

  • Technical University Masters / PhD in Control Engineering (Mechatronics / Mechanical / Electrical / Aerospace engineering).
  • At least 3 years of experience in a similar role, preferably within ASML or in related high tech industry.
  • A solid basis in mechanics with good feeling for mechatronics, electronics and software and measurement systems is required.
  • Experience in multidisciplinary project work involving mechatronics, optics, electronics and software is a pre.


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. Instead, you’ll be part of a creative, dynamic work environment where you’ll collaborate with supportive colleagues. There is always space for creative and unique points of view.
