ASML Strategic Sourcing Project Manager in Veldhoven, Netherlands


Which technologies really set us apart from competition? Which technologies do we need to develop in-house to stay ahead? Should ASML build a new factory for this? Or a new technology development center? Where are the leading external competence centers in the world and should we partner with them? All this in a fast-paced environment where time-to-customer is essential - this is what strategic Make-Buys at ASML are all about.

Building competitive and agile suppliers around a technology – e.g. Mechatronics, Electronics, Optics, Sensors. How can we build a supplier ecosystem that can follow our technology roadmap? Or even drive it? A supply chain that can survive a downturn and can be ready for the next upturn and where ASML keeps long term leverage and control?

Are you ready to broaden your business skills, your influencing skills and negotiating skills? To use your technological competence in a different setting? To learn how to judge other companies on their fit with the ASML DNA? Are you interested to see how a career would look like working on the boundary of AMSL with the rest of the world?
