Introduction to the job


Do you take initiative and ownership from the beginning until the end when it comes to the development of hardware products? Do you have extensive experience with precision mechanics?  
We are looking for a “junior” mechanical engineer and a “senior” (lead) mechanical engineer for WTC who will work with mechanical wafers and wafer table components in our Wafer Tables and Clamps (WTC) department within the Mechanical Development (MDEV) cluster in ASML.

Wafer tables and clamps are the mechanical interface between our machine and the wafers that we process. It is a hardware product that needs to provide a nanometer accurate platform for a million plus wafer passes. Therefore, it requires a complex combination of precision engineering, tribology, materials and high precision manufacturing competences to realize this. 

As a mechanical engineer for WTC you will design, develop, test and introduce mechanical wafers, wafer table components, and related tools for manufacturing, assembly and servicing. Together with your colleagues, you will be responsible for all hardware development and issue resolutions. Will you lead our developments into the future as a junior/senior (lead) mechanical engineer for our WTC department?  

Role and responsibilities

As a mechanical engineer in the (WTC) department you’ll develop precision engineered products that meet functional and operational requirements. You’ll secure the quality and performance of your designs by performing theoretical and practical verifications. Finally, you will Integrate your designs into the machine with your internal customers. 

As a mechanical engineer for WTC, you’ll:  

  • Design hardware products with the optimal balance of precision engineering, tribology, materials and high precision manufacturing aspects 
  • Review concepts with different stakeholders (such as architects, FEM analysts, project leaders, project team, and suppliers) 
  • Actively engage external/internal suppliers and your internal customers to align their needs 
  • Follow ASML’s processes and use your precision engineering skills to make 3D-designs, prototypes, minimize risks and deliver reliable and cost-effective designs Create the technical product documentation and introduce it into our product lifecycle management system 
  • Qualify the design by contributing to the specification and execution of various tests 
  • Be active in the field to check issues that may arise  
  • Ensure the hardware products and tools work well; to develop and manufacture series in high volume 

As a senior (lead) mechanical engineer, you’ll: 

  • Specify and design modules and related parts supporting different (sub)systems 
  • Set-up requirements (define the purpose of the hardware and coordinate the required components) 
  • Be a technical leader who defines the solution, coaches and guides several engineers in your team as well as managing supplier feedback 
  • Be responsible for applying the correct mechanical construction principles, plan and delegate work to the team 
  • Realize the qualification of the design by contributing to the specification of various tests 
  • Design and realize tests and appliances and be responsible for ensuring that prototypes are built, and tests are done 
  • Be responsible for the technical product documentation and design implementation towards manufacturing and field service. 
  • Work with co-developers and external supplying parties to timely deliver to your project on site at ASML or at co-developer sites  

Education and experience

To help us design, develop, test and introduce the best mechanical wafers, wafer table components, as mechanical engineer for WTC you’ll need:

  • Bachelor’s degree (with some years of experience) or; 
    Master’s degree in mechanical engineering from a technical university 
  • Some years of experience in the development of precision hardware; 
    Junior mechanical engineer: 0 – 2 years of experience 
    Senior (lead) mechanical engineer: 8+ years of experience  
  • Specialized knowledge of precision engineering, technical materials, coatings, tribology and bonding technology
  •  A must: experience with NX and Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) 
  •  A plus: design experience with glass and/or ceramics 
                 experience within cleanroom environment
              experience with Teamcenter



Working at the forefront of tech, you’ll always have new challenges and new problems to solve – and working together is the only way to do that. You won’t work in a silo. Instead, you’ll be part of a creative, dynamic work environment where you’ll collaborate with supportive colleagues. There is always space for creative and unique points of view.
