ASML is one of the world's leading manufacturers of lithography systems that help enable Moore's Law and the creation of increasingly powerful and capable electronic devices. At our San Diego location we are renowned for developing both deep ultraviolet (DUV) lithography light sources and next generation extreme ultraviolet (EUV) light sources. We are a multinational company with over 70 locations in 16 countries, headquartered in Veldhoven, the Netherlands.

If you have a passion for technology and innovation you'll want to check us out. Be a part of ASML. Be a part of progress.


The EUV source team in San Diego operates in a fast-paced, uniquely innovative and challenging environment to create new-to-industry solutions with rapid production to support an aggressive commercialization plan for the EUV (Extreme Ultra Violet) technology within ASML.

The Droplet Steering and Control function within the Droplet Generation Department is responsible for the development and engineering of the mechanics and control that steers the droplet stream to a precis location within the vacuum EUV source vessel to enable production of EUV light. The function is also responsible for the overall automation and control of the droplet generation process. The complexity of the EUV source puts exciting and challenging demands on the Droplet Generation Project Lead who will be leading all phases of the droplet generation and steering control development and integration involving precision mechanism and metrology, high speed electronics, real-time embedded software, and sophisticated control algorithms and state management logic, all working under extremely challenging dynamic conditions to produce stable and reliable droplets.


+ Lead a critical Droplet Generation project to organize the tasks, schedule and budget planning; the team will consist of functional and competency architects and engineers. The team's goal will be to successfully design and integrate a major controls subsystem for the EUV source.

+ Collaborate with the functional manager and technical architect as a "3 in-a box team" to develop project roadmaps, schedules, progress dashboards and risk assessments.
