Job Description:

Mechanical System Architect
Location: Veldhoven


Translating mechanical system architectures into conceptual designs, there lies your expertise. Together with other critical and driven professionals, you are eager to push technical boundaries: conceive, develop and realize totally new and cutting-edge system concepts. Are you the inspiring, determined and critical mind we are looking for?

Job Mission

Your mission as an ASML Mechanical System Architect is to translate high level system layout architectures into adequate concept designs, thereby enabling the optimal functionality and cost effective engineering of new systems.

Job Description
You will achieve your mission by generating system concepts and then discussing them with your 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, motivate feedback and mediate conflicts effectively in order to keep moving forward. In short, you must inspire. 

The following tasks and responsibilities are included in your function:
• Investigating and defining layout concepts based on discussions with the relevant projects and sectors;
• Validating the concepts on:
- System performance requirements
- Manufacturability
- Serviceability
- Transportability & install
• Ensuring knowledge transfer to production;
• Contributing to system roadmaps.


Bachelor or Master’s in mechanical engineering

• 5 years in taking lead in creating and realizing new machine concepts or large complex modules;
• System engineering;
• Configuration management;
• Knowledge of NX or other 3D design tool.

Personal skills
• Leadership and the ability to inspire;
• Networking skills;
• Eagerness to learn new technical skills via daily interaction with like-minded professionals.

Context of the position
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. 

Within ASML, the sector Development & Engineering (D&E) is responsible for the specification, design and engineering of theASMLproducts. The architect reports to the group leader Mechanical System Layout and is operational within multidisciplinary, cross-sectorial projects.
