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 (EUV laser source creation).
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.
The laser-produced plasma EUV source produced by ASML generates light by firing high-energy laser pulses at Tin droplet targets at kHz repetition rates. The resulting plasma pulses create both desired EUV light, and undesired tin debris in the form of ballistic particulates and atomic vapor. If unabated, the Tin debris will coat all surfaces in the vessel, including optical components, impacting the transmission of EUV and Laser light.
We are looking for a Systems Design and Project Engineer (Semiconductor Equipment) supporting solution development and implementation on the product having the SAFe (Scaled Agile Framework) role of product owner. The objective is to ensure design concepts can be developed to address the undesired Tin debris and deliver robust product solutions. The successful candidate will be a highly motivated and enthusiastic individual with a hands-on technical background, excellent communication skills, planning capability, and ability to influence others. You will work with a team of highly professional engineers and scientists with diverse academic backgrounds and many years of experience. Your job is to provide work scope, work prioritization, and support to the team to deliver practical solutions and ensure successful validation and implementation of these features on the product.To be successful you must work with multiple project leaders and distill clear, prioritized work instructions to your scrum teams.
