Introduction to the job

Are you interested in joining our team to drive the adoption of business process management within ASML's complex business landscape? If you want to be part of a high performing team with a focus on structural improvements, please have a look at the job description below and let us know if you are the person we are looking for.

The BPM team is the owner of the manage business process capability and as such is responsible for supporting business process owners in designing, managing and improving their business processes so that business objectives can be achieved in an effective and efficient manner across Sectors.

One of the sectors that the BPM team supports, is Business Performance Improvement (BPI). This sector supports ASML in improving its cross-sectoral non-product related processes to help it deal with growth in scope, volume and complexity and to bring value to our employees and customers alike.

Outside BPI, the BPM team also supports various other strategic breakthrough programs, that enable both functional Sectors and product Business Lines to improve their way of working and to increase quality levels to create customer trust. Since its recent move back to Global Quality, the BPM team is starting to play its role in helping ASML adopt a Quality First mindset, by addressing quality issues from an end-to-end perspective and coming up with sustainable solutions.

To help ASML achieve the full business benefits of BPM, it is essential that the ARIS BPM application can be easily found and used by all ASML employees, from Global Process Owners to newly hired engineers who want to find work instructions that explain in simple day to day language how things are done at ASML. Our motto is: “Three clicks does it all”. Achieving this motto requires a significant step-up in the current configuration of ARIS, as well as ongoing improvements going forward.

The role of ARIS product owner is currently performed part-time by the BPM Senior Process Architect, who provides input to the BPM Back Office team for their bi-weekly development and maintenance sprints.
