Do you want to play an important role in testing our highly advanced and extremely complex Metrology systems and push boundaries, set new standards and make the impossible, possible – every day?

Are you an expert in testing that can build credibility in the development teams and support them by deploying essential software test strategies and -methods?

Job Mission

Metrology software orchestrates the behavior of powerful mechatronic modules, so that together they achieve an extraordinary combination of speed and accuracy. For example, one such module (a wafer stage), accelerates faster than a fighter jet to enable the ASML machine to position a silicon wafer in less than a second, with nanometer accuracy!

As well as using metrology systems to position wafers, ASML also uses metrology systems to measure, model and control to achieve sub-nanometer accuracies. To achieve and maintain this accuracy the best metrology systems ever imagined are required.

Job Description

Your role is to define a test strategy for the functional cluster including a roadmap and realization plan of this strategy. The main tasks & responsibilities are:

  • Define a test strategy and align within cluster on the test strategy approach
