Job Description: 


ASML is seeking an experienced data analysis engineer with expertise in processing of optical images for metrology process development of ultra-high precision flat optics to join the Optical Sensor and Metrology Department in Wilton, Connecticut. The main job function is to develop, improve and integrate image processing, correction algorithms and deliver software packages in MATLAB for engineering and manufacturing teams to solve challenging engineering problems associated with achieving nanometer scale precision.


The main focus of this position will be:

  • Develop / improve image processing algorithm to extract nm flatness information from interferometer data
  • Integrate algorithm from developers in to image processing  software package for analysis and process development cycles for engineering and manufacturing users
  • Maintain Version controlled software package for multiple product generations
  • Perform software testing to identify application, algorithm  and software bugs.
  • Validate/ verify / regression test software to ensure it meets the business and technical requirements.
  • Develop & execute roadmap of analysis, software, and systems, to mitigate product & process risk and prevent software performance issues.
  • Lead the design team in software analysis tool development to find solutions to difficult technical problems in an efficient manner;
  • Develop/ maintain /improve   database structures and capabilities  
  • Write Matlab scripts to search analyze and plot data from Database.
  • Support query code to interrogate data for manufacturing and engineering needs.
  • Support image analysis on data and derive conclusions
  • Some travel ( ~ 10%) to Europe, Asia, and within the US can be expected. 


Bachelor degree in Computer Science / electrical engineer / optical engineering with minimum of 4 years experience in developing signal processing & image processing algorithm and software; or Master's degree in similar disciplines with a minimum of 2 years of related experience; or PhD degree in similar disciplines


Candidate must:

  • Experienced  in software like:; MATLAB, Python , C/C++
  • Experienced in scientific  image/signal /data process algorithm, statistics  and software development
