Are you a highly qualified expert in semiconductor process technology wanting to enhance customer satisfaction and influence new product development? This job enables you to enhance your career within ASML.

Job Mission

As a Senior Application Engineer in the Customer Support (CS) Applications Engineering department your main goal will be to have satisfied customers. You will achieve this through proactively providing customized applications solutions and creating RequisitionLocal with ASML products and services that enable our partners’ technology & manufacturing roadmaps.
