ASML’s Applications products are critical elements in the semiconductor manufacturing process. Software system level testing is a very important step in the development process of our products and ensures that the system meets specifications. The System Test Engineer is a key participant in the system level test process and provides important input to the product release decision making process.
It is your mission to test and report on the quality of ASML’s products at the system level. You prevent issues from reaching the customer.
As a Software System Test Engineer you are a member of the Applications System Test & Integration team. You define, create, execute and report on system level tests. You perform both regression and progression testing. Together with the Test Architect, you define the tests that need to be executed to verify the functionality and performance of our products. While executing the system tests, you detect and register issues. You work with development teams in diagnosing the issues and re-testing solutions.
You report the issues found and enable the product teams to judge the impact and risks of the issues. Lead time and test quality are important; you continuously seek ways to improve the efficiency and effectivity of your work. During the alpha test period, the team is expected to work outside regular office hours. The Test & Integration team is close to 20 people and follows an Agile/Kanban way of working.
You perform the following tasks
Software baseline validation
Execute the basic regression test on the software baseline
Quality check of the project deliverables
Contribute to requirement reviews with respect to testability
Review project input documents (project test report, process conformance)
Provide a quality verdict of the delivered software; accept/reject deliverables
Execute the alpha test of new software packages
Execute alpha tests
Write test reports, submit issue tickets
Suggest process/tooling improvements where necessary
Bachelor degree or higher in Computer Science, Software Engineering or Information Technology.

Context of the position
ASML’s main product is the wafer scanner, a complex high precision machine used by our customers in the semiconductor industry to create Integrated Circuits. But within ASML, the lesser known Business Line “Applications” creates a new type of products that helps our customers to improve the quality of their designs and their manufacturing process.These products measure deficiencies in the customer’s process and use ASML’s wafer scanners to correct them. The Applications business line is very successful, is growing and is generating a significant part of ASML’s revenue.
