ASML Mechanical System Architect in Veldhoven, Netherlands


Have you always wanted to take your creative thinking to the next level? Are you eager to push technical boundaries with like-minded professionals? To conceive, develop and realize totally new system concepts? If so, then we want to talk with you.

Job Mission

Your mission as an ASML Mechanical System Architect is to think – conceptually and creatively.

Because we need people who can translate extremely exotic system requirements into extremely feasible mechanical designs.

Creative thinking has always been essential at ASML. We make machines that are almost unimaginably complex, and work within incredibly minute tolerances. What’s more, their complexity is increasing and their tolerance margins are vanishing. That’s why we need Mechanical System Architects who can conceive a global system view that answers all of these technical challenges. A view that, when detailed-out, will help realize a machine that meets all of the next wave of new system requirements and still be feasible to manufacture, transport, install and service.

Job Description

You will achieve your mission by generating system concepts and then discussing them with colleagues from a very broad range of technical disciplines. But to ensure you get the best of your colleagues’ creative thinking and analytical skills you must communicate the abstract as well as the technical. You must express your vision and motivate feedback. In short, you must inspire. Because by inspiring them, you will get the insight and holistic viewpoint you need to make, mold and refine the highly artistic system design that we crave for.
