ASML US, LP brings together the most creative minds in science and technology to develop lithography machines that are key to producing faster, cheaper, more energy-efficient microchips. We design, develop, integrate, market and service these advanced machines, which enable our customers - the world’s leading chipmakers - to reduce the size and increase the functionality of their microchips, which in turn leads to smaller, more powerful consumer electronics. Our headquarters are in Veldhoven, the Netherlands, and we have 18 office locations around the United States including main offices in Wilton, CT, Chandler, AZ, San Jose, CA and San Diego, CA.

This position requires access to controlled technology, as defined in the Export Administration Regulations (15 C.F.R. § 730, et seq.). Qualified candidates must be legally authorized to access such controlled technology prior to beginning work. Business demands may require ASML to proceed with applicants who are immediately eligible to access controlled technology.

Job Mission

EUV Lithography is at the beginning of a manufacturing ramp to support introduction into High Volume Semiconductor Manufacturing processes. Key modules that are critical to the lithography system’s success are being designed for an industrialized system and are nearing launch into production. ASML and Cymer are looking for talented and motivated individuals to come design the manufacturing process by building into new product design requirements and design decisions that enable assembly and testing with volume production ready principals.

This role is within the Manufacturing Engineering organization.The Manufacturing Engineer in EUV designs develops implements and maintains methods, operational sequence and processes in the manufacture, fabrication, testing and troubleshooting of parts, components, sub-assemblies, final assemblies and systems. He or she interfaces with the design engineering team in coordinating the release of new products by engaging early in the design process to integrate Design for Manufacturing requirements.
