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.

Failure of the platform has high impact. It would mean failure of the customers (tsmc, Samsung, Intel etc.) production facility.
