ASML US, LP 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 headquarters are in Veldhoven, the Netherlands, and we have 18 office locations around the United States including main offices in Wilton, CT, Chandler, AZ, San Jose, CA and San Diego, CA.

This position requires access to controlled technology, as defined in the Export Administration Regulations (15 C.F.R. § 730, et seq.). Qualified candidates must be legally authorized to access such controlled technology prior to beginning work. Business demands may require ASML to proceed with applicants who are immediately eligible to access controlled technology.”

Job Mission

The primary responsibility of the Proto Integrator is to lead a team of Test Engineers in the integration, test, and qualification of new hardware and software on the existing EUV Source product. The Proto Integrator does this by planning, preparing, and supervising the execution of testing, upgrades, modifications, and repairs on assigned Prototype EUV Sources.This includes but is not limited to creating optimized engineering sequences, detailed daily schedules, resource plans, risk mitigation strategies, and daily progress reports.The Proto Integrator is responsible for highlighting technical issues, managing escalations, driving solutions, and coordinating with various design engineering teams to maximize the utilization and availability of the EUV Source. The 2nd shift Proto Integrator works closely with multiple 1st shift Proto Integrators to comprehend complex testing schedules across several EUV Sources . The 2nd Shift Proto Integrator leads the Test Engineers to successfully execute these test schedules, modifying sequences or changing plans as necessary to meet critical development timelines.

Job Description

  • Manages the engineering activities within a development program.
  • Validates product design performance/quality/reliability at system level and module/sub-assy/component level with Design Engineers.
  • Ensures successful completion of module and system-level testing, compliance/reliability testing, life testing, and any activity required as part of the product’s release into manufacturing.
  • Ensures proper documentation is completed for each development activity, and that adequate documentation exists for product manufacturing (test procedures, drawings, BOMs – Build of Material).
  • Drives material, tooling and resource availability for source activities.
  • Manages the system configuration.
  • Expedites development process as required to achieve approved program plans.
  • Supports first shift Proto Integrators (provides information, fill-in during absence, etc.) as required.
  • Ensures that the PGP is communicated and followed within the program’s engineering team.Provides feedback on ways to improve the PGP.
  • Assesses and highlights risks and develops mitigation plans.
  • Proactively communicates issues and manages the solution paths.
  • Builds constructive cross-functional relationships (engineers, scientists, worldwide customer support personnel, manufacturing personnel, project leads, program, upper management, marketing), to maximize coordination of engineering activities.
  • Interprets, implements, and monitors modifications to department methods, processes, policies and safety standards that affect multiple work groups.
  • May provide advanced management direction to a complex technical subject matter area.
  • Provides input and plans for program related expense to the Integration Project Lead for program budget development and forecasting.
  • Completes timesheets, expense reports, and other administrative responsibilities in accordance with ASML policy.
  • Performs other duties as assigned.


  • BS in Optical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Engineering Physics, Physics, Applied Physics, Nuclear Engineering, Mechatronics or Mechanical Engineering, or equivalent technical discipline.Minimum 2 years of experience required.
  • MS in Optical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Engineering Physics, Physics, Applied Physics, Nuclear Engineering, Mechatronics, or Mechanical Engineering preferred.


  • Knowledge and experiences in high-tech machinery, optics, laser-induced plasma, metrology, and/or vacuum systems preferred.
  • Experiences in semiconductor equipment development a strong plus.
  • Product development experience utilizing phase gate or similar product development process guidelines
