About this vacancy

We are Applications – a business line within ASML, one of the world market leaders in scanning lithography technology. We create application products that run in the most modern semiconductor fabs in the world, and we are always pushing the boundary of what is possible.

The Applications Development & Engineering department develops, integrates, and qualifies functional modules and application packages in the area of wafer metrology (critical dimension, overlay, etc.) and wafer fab applications (performance control applications). Additionally, we provide technical consulting to our customers, by designing and helping to implement integral solutions for on-product performance based on the products developed by ASML.

Job description

As member of a strong multidisciplinary team you enjoy developing application products used in daily customer practice. These products relate to metrology solutions to be used in R&D and in high-volume manufacturing conditions.

The job includes the assessment and development of new technology and product directions in order to find solutions to application customer needs.

You deal with various challenging topics, covering a wide variety of competences such as semiconductor processing, electronic device architecture, scatterometry, mathematical algorithms including machine learning, and, ASML application products.

You will work in close collaboration with the customer, our development partners, and internal stakeholders.

You are expected to represent ASML as an expert in the field and to get recognition of this by customers. Since you will be working intimately with customers and sensitive customer data, a high level of integrity is required for securing confidentiality, while at the same time being able to give input to product managers and system engineers for ASML product improvements.

The job consists of following activities:

  • Design, develop, and evaluate In Device Metrology products in close collaboration with the customer.
  • Perform data analysis with models and algorithms on customer data.
  • Create functional design proposals for improving the metrology performance.
  • Participate actively in identifying future product features
  • Traveling a few times per year to customers worldwide.

Your initial responsibilities will be adapted to your experience level. In case of little experience, adequate training will be provided for enabling your development to a higher engineer level.
