Over deze vacature

At ASML, we like to make the impossible possible. Our lithography technology – which uses light to print tiny patterns on silicon – is fundamental to mass-producing semiconductor chips. With it, the world’s top chipmakers are creating better-performing, cheaper chips. In fact, ASML’s technology is probably used for the device you’re using right now! We design and engineer machines that are on the cutting edge of technology. These machines do things like beaming a tiny droplet of tin with a powerful laser, so it turns into plasma and as a consequence emits just the frequency of light that we need. That is requiring complex hardware and of course complex software and software development environments. We are searching for the brightest minds on the planet to help us achieve our mission.


Designing and building complex software requires state of the art software tools. That’s what we do at IT Product &Technology Software Innovation: using the Scaled Agile Framework way of working to provide a world class development environment with efficient pipelines to our embedded software engineers. Making sure software can be stored, edited, validated, automatically tested, built and deployed across all our software stacks and machines. Extending and transforming the existing IDE into a world class environment by continuously innovating and introducing new tools to like GitHub Actions, Bazel, Docker, Kubernetes and much more. Our goal? That our magic empowers our embedded colleagues to do their magic.
