Introduction to the job

1st, 2nd, 3rd Shift & Weekend (Full-Time) Positions Available

ASML US 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 Chandler Arizona, San Jose and San Diego California, Wilton Connecticut, and Hillsboro Oregon.

The mission of this position is to build in and test proto hardware and software (reticle stage & handler, wafer alignment sensor, wafer table, etc.) on an NXT fully functional (less light) test rig with minimum lead-time and maximum quality.
