Participate in the development of our distributed data and compute platform infrastructure. Be accurate, be precise and own the specification, design and implementation of features and fixes.
Onboard, integrate and configure open source or other packages that support the development of semiconductor process tuning applications on the ASML platform.
Support installation of these platforms in Korea, Taiwan, Israel, China and the US (etc.).
Be part of this compute platform that is one of the main pillars under the production of the next generation microchips of Apple, Samsung and many others!
You will be working as engineer in the virtual compute platform (VCP). This platform is developed inside ASML to host compute and analytics applications that aim to improve the yield in the semiconductor factories of our customers.
These applications take data from ASML scanners and ASML yield star equipment. They combine this data to real time production corrections and scanner process diagnostics.
The corrections are sent back to the ASML production equipment. Failure of the platform has high impact. It would mean failure of the customers (tsmc, Samsung, Intel etc.) production facility.
The platform is currently developed based on DC / OS. In 2021 we have started the migration to Kubernetes. We develop the platform aspects in our team.
Scheduling of resources, containerization, fail-over and data collection from scanner and measurement devices inside the fab.
We have an uptime expectation of 4 nine’s. As a true distributed computing expert you will have your own view on such a baseline expectation.
This might be a nice topic to discuss during an interview.
Installations and upgrades are automated with Ansible. Other technologies you may encounter are Spark for data processing, Kafka for notifications and high volume data ingestion.
Hadoop and HBASE are used for data storage. We are open to your underpinned input on the suitability of stable alternatives for these technologies where these better suit the ASML business case.
Your responsibilities :
We really want this to be an exception, not a rule
We also value :
Context of the position
You will be working at Business Line Applications. The BL Apps develops Analytics & Control solutions that improve the accuracy of performance metrics (such as overlay, focus, critical dimension) as measured on the end product of a fab process (wafers with chip structures).
You will work on the platform underneath these processing algorithms, a distributed computing platform.
This platform will provide value to ASML customers all over the world, making sure the chips of the next generation are produces efficiently and with the highest quality.
There are 3 4 infra teams, 20-30 engineers, Product Owners and Scrum Masters working on the platform layers.
The application development teams that develop the business critical applications consist of 15-25 teams.
As maintenance and definition of playbooks is an important part of your work we would like to see in your application where and how you have gained that experience.
Please add a section to your application letter to explain to some extent why you qualify great at this requirement. The same holds for containerization, welcome for Hadoop.
