ASML Business Managed Application Engineer in Veldhoven, Netherlands


The sector Customer Support (CS) is responsible for the maintenance of ASML systems on customer locations and supporting the customer in the use of these systems in their production processes. These systems are very expensive and therefore the bottleneck in the customer fab, meaning that there is a continuous drive to improve the CS performance in terms of quality and efficiency.

Efficiency is supported by tools / automation that are delivered by our Development or our IT organization. However, this does not cover the full need of CS, resulting in own, or mostly locally developed applications. CS has decided that a number of these applications will need to be standardized throughout the world wide organization (60+ offices in the world). These standardized applications are called Business Managed Applications (BMAs). Once these applications are rolled out it is essential that proper support is arranged, meaning there has to be capacity in place to sustain and further improve the application.
