Working in Manufacturing at ASML

Manufacturing offers a wide range of roles for people with vocational qualifications as well as bachelor’s and master’s degrees.

Some of our most dynamic teams work the night shift, where you’ll be sure to learn at an accelerated pace. Shift work can also involve a compressed work schedule and, where applicable, a shift allowance. All roles rely on close collaboration and team spirit as we work together to bring the final product to fruition.
