What’s it like working at a semiconductor industry leader?

Challenging work that is changing the world

Working at the cutting edge of tech, you’ll always have new challenges and new problems to solve. Our industry ecosystem is constantly evolving and innovating, and you will too. But the work isn’t just challenging and exciting, it’s rewarding. Your contributions will profoundly impact society, because – from smartphones to automotive tech – if it’s moving the world forward, we’re behind it.

Collaboration is the key

Working together is the only way to solve the complex, intriguing problems you and your team will face daily. So you won’t work in a silo. Instead, you'll thrive in a creative, dynamic work environment where you’ll collaborate with supportive colleagues.

Care and respect for all

We are proud to say that ASML is an environment of mutual respect, where people feel valued – an environment that leads to better results than any of us could achieve alone. You will have the flexibility and trust to choose how best to tackle tasks and solve problems.

We offer three career paths: you can specialize technically, become a manager, or grow into project management. We also encourage you to gain experience across departments and regions.


Driving your own development is easier said than done. It starts with clarity on what skill or behavior you would like to develop – it's your choice. This is followed by motivation to make a change, bolstered by feedback from the people close to you and structured with a concrete development plan that we can suggest.


ASML has various tools in place to support you in driving your own development. We offer a broad range of learning interventions, ranging from classroom training to personal coaching, online assessments to business simulation games, and  computer-based training to potential acceleration programs. Our employees learn through their preferred methods, either self-driven or classroom-based. After all, we believe you know best how you learn best.
