ASML is changing the world, one nanometer
at a time! We’re a high-tech, Netherlands-
based company manufacturing complex
lithography systems that chipmakers use to
produce integrated circuits – aka microchips.
Be part of progress
Were a dynamic, global team of over 40,000 people and
143 nationalities – and counting. Based in Europe’s most
prolic tech hub, the Brainport Eindhoven region in the
Netherlands, our operations are spread across Europe,
Asia and the US. If you’re ready to bring your best ideas and

Investing in our people
Behind ASMLs innovation hides true talent. Our
researchers, engineers, scientists and manufacturing
specialists, as well as our high-tech hardware and software
experts, make the impossible happen every day.
We invest around €3.3 billion per year in R&D, giving our
teams the freedom, support and resources to experiment
and push the boundaries of technology. They work in
close-knit, multidisciplinary teams, learning and growing
along with the company.

Building a sustainable future
Were deeply committed to our vision of a more sustainable
future through the advancement of technology. Our strategic
sustainability focus areas include minimizing waste and
maximizing resources. In addition, corporate citizenship
initiatives, such as promoting technical education in the
communities where we operate, form the foundation for how
we conduct our business.
Our machines help create the electronics you use in your
daily life. In the past three decades, we have grown from a
startup to a multinational company with over 60 locations
globally and annual net sales of €21.2billion in 2023. Our
customers include the world’s leading chipmakers like Intel,
Samsung and TSMC. We provide them with everything
they need – hardware, software and services – to mass
produce patterns on silicon through lithography.

Well-being is always top of mind for us! We support our
employees in taking the initiative to foster their health and
happiness to promote a good work-life balance.
Innovation to the max
Working at the forefront of technology oers unique
challenges, driving our expert teams to innovate across
multiple elds and disciplines. Over 20 years of sustained
R&D brought us the development of extreme ultraviolet (EUV)
lithography. As the only supplier of this advanced technology,
we’re responsible for continuing to develop and perfect these
complex systems. One example of this complexity is how EUV
light is generated. First, a 30-kilowatt laser res at tin droplets
50,000 times per second, hitting each droplet twice. The
laser vaporizes the tin droplets, creating a plasma hotter than
the surface of the sun. This interaction emits EUV light at a
wavelength of 13.5 nanometers. And all of this takes place in a
vacuum-sealed system.
From patterning nanometer-sized structures on a microchip
wafer to creating light using lasers and liquid meta
