Over deze vacature

Challenging opportunity at one of the most high-tech companies in the world.


The IT division supports information management, infrastructure and key business processes across ASML. The ICT infrastructure, hardware and applications are absolutely mission-critical for almost all ASML’s internal and external activities.

The software engineering infrastructure (SEI) group within ASML IT is responsible for the software development environment. This environment consists of an integrated development, build, test and release environment and must be capable to support the lifecycle and configuration management of the ASML product software.

The environment is developed and maintained in close cooperation with the ASML software development community. Key challenge is on one hand to have a state of the art environment to support the newest product development and on the other hand safeguard the stability and reliability and long term support for the growing installed product base at our customers.

Job Mission
The software development environment is now considered as a Mission Critical Service for which two key IT projects require an infrastructure specialist.

Build Program
The Build Program has the goal to design, implement, test and deploy a new software build system. Due to legacy environments, build exceptions and violations, unfinished projects and insufficient documentation, the current build system is considered not to be maintainable for the coming years. In one of the tracks of this program additional Linux build servers will have to be deployed and an investigation is planned for the viability of virtualizing the build server environment.

Pioneer project
The Pioneer project has the goal to migrate the current, Solaris based, software development environment for XT machines to Linux. To enable this transition the underlying IT infrastructure will have to be migrated to Linux.

Job Description

  • Define requirements and create high-& low- level designs
  • Analyze impact of existing interfaces/services that uses the software development environment when switching to a virtual build environment
  • Aligning with key-users and software engineers on new solution setup
  • Implementing new infra components together with the SEI Infra team and external service providers
  • Guarding overall quality delivered by the external service providers
