Introduction to the job

Do you enjoy the challenges of improving the manufacturability and serviceability of complex and advanced lithography equipment? Do you have a strong vision on the industrialization and integration aspects of complex mechanical systems and are you able to bring your message across to different types of stakeholders? Then you will successfully fulfill the position of industrialization architect!

Role and responsibilities

As industrialization architect you will contribute to the development of products by specifying, integrating and verifying the industrialization requirements for mechanical layout related functions of our ASML systems. You are able to proactively improve proposed designs and processes based on lessons learned and data from the factory and/or our customer sites. Furthermore, you will act as the technical lead from an industrialization point of view, from the early design phase until the use of the system at customer site.

As industrialization architect you'll:
  • Translate the overall function design into an architecture that meets these requirements of cycle time, availability and cost of goods, align these requirements with your counter parts, create and balance the budget towards the different users in the function and communicate to, and where necessary negotiation between, these users

  • Analyze and explain gaps between expected and actual performance and give direction for solutions. Maintain a lesson learned database for future design and process improvements. Document and present the current status and predicted results to projects and the wider organization

  • Create and maintain technical product documentation (e.g., EPS, EDS, pFMEA, ADR, Sequence overview, TPS) on industrialization requirements and deliverables. Oversee implementation of industrialization requirements and budgets in the conceptual and detail designs. Verify and validate the system performance based on cycle time measurements during system integration and field feedback

Education and experience

  • Master's degree (or bachelor's degree with experience) in Mechanical Engineering, Mechatronics, Physics, Electrical or other similar education
  • >5 years of experience in a service or production environment with high tech products and complex production processes
  • Proven track record in relation to industrialization, serviceability or availability and specifically system reliability, diagnostics and recovery
  • Experience in analysis on (new) designs to define the critical areas with guidance for required improvements


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. You’ll have the flexibility and trust to choose how best to tackle tasks and solve problems.

  • To thrive as industrialization architect, you’ll need the following skills:
  • Excellent analytical skills and “helicopter view”
  • Able to influence without power and speak up
  • Self-propelling and entrepreneurial attitude
  • Strong communication, organizational, interpersonal and team building skills
  • Perseverance in situations when confronted with push back
