Job Category



ASML brings together the most creative minds in science and technology to develop lithography machines that are key to producing faster, cheaper, more energy-efficient microchips. We design, develop, integrate, market and service these advanced machines, which enable our customers - the world’s leading chipmakers - to reduce the size and increase the functionality of their microchips, which in turn leads to smaller, more powerful consumer electronics. Our main headquarters are located in Veldhoven, the Netherlands, and we also have 18 office locations around the United States- including main offices in Wilton, CT, Chandler, AZ, San Jose, CA and San Diego, CA.

Job Mission

ASML is seeking a Mechatronics / Robotics Architect to join the Wilton, CT development location as we break new ground in the emerging field of Extreme Ultraviolet Lithography. As ASML pushes the boundaries of Nano-technology beyond current state of the art, we have developed a need to develop high precision equipment while maintaining a focus on cost effectiveness and reliability. We are looking for someone to help pioneer knowledge in this developing area.

Job Description

Primary Responsibilities:

-Mechatronics engineering background or specialization in closely related areas such as robotics or other fields.
-Experience with understanding and troubleshooting legacy designs to determine potential risks, failure modes, and corrective actions.
-Integration of “off-the-shelf” robotics into capital equipment, developing with the cross sector team all related aspects such as dynamics, thermal management, end effector design, controls, etc.
-Responsible for “sustaining engineering” tasks, resolving equipment design issues in a timely fashion as they arise at customer sites.
-Participation of concept design studies for next generation equipment and subsystems.
-Develop the mechatronic modules or sub-assemblies when given higher level module or sub-system requirements.
-Derive lower level requirements and designs for mounted optics and mechatronic positioning and measurement devices such as position and presence sensors.
-Basic experience with mechatronics behavior predictive modeling and methods, including “first principle” engineering equations and other techniques, using tools such as MATLAB, Simulink, or similar programs.
-Strong skills in proof of concept development and design of experiments for a wide range of project needs.
-Ability to run complex mechatronic systems for test and qualification of design changes.
-Demonstrated ability to derive conclusions from analysis and to make practical recommendations.
-Strong technical writing and communication skills, including the ability to present results based on strong statistical evidence to audiences of a wide range of technical abilities
-Take direction from ASML System Architects and Senior Engineering mentors who are leading the development effort of critical large capital equipment.
-Ability to drive cross functional teams towards quality deliverables, includes software, mechanical engineering, and electrical engineering.
-Exposure to multi-disciplinary projects, such as imaging or optical systems preferred but not required.
