As an engineer at ASM, you’ll have the opportunities to get involved in a wider scope of work compared to our larger competitors. While the workload is challenging, you are given the independence and autonomy to perform at your peak. This work requires thinking “outside of the box” in an innovative manner, so you must have the ability to collaborate with others to deliver creative solutions, work well under pressure and pay great attention to small details.

A Senior Electrical Engineer at ASM will provide solutions for difficult technical electrical issues associated with specific projects, contribute to the timely completion of specific programs and projects, possess the ability to work on complex assignments with some guidance and direction from the Engineering Manager.


  • Develop fail safe, cost effective designs for systems and lower level sub-assemblies used in semiconductor wafer processing equipment. Design, implement, and improve electrical instruments, equipment, facilities, components, products, and systems.
  • Integrate lower level assemblies to obtain a desired system level configuration.
  • Adapt digital and analog I/O requirements to achieve customer specific configurations.
  • Apply sound engineering principles, product specifications and research data to create designs for systems and products for the semiconductor industry maintaining code compliance and product design safety criteria.
  • Direct and coordinate manufacturing, construction, installation, maintenance, support, documentation, and testing activities to ensure compliance with specifications, codes, and customer requirements.
  • Create and release technical components specifications for devices that will be integrated into larger capital equipment
  • Work under the supervision of the Electrical Engineering Manager; provide relevant and timely project status information to the Project Manager as required; supervise and train project team members.
  • Provide technical support for capital orders, expense projects, retrofits and development projects.
  • Provide engineering cost estimates to marketing for nonstandard options, new system features and product enhancements. This activity may also require some customer interaction dealing with design revisions and installation requirements.
  • Evaluate engineering change requests and implement changes as necessary following established procedures and schedules.
  • Travel to customer sites to assist in installation of retrofits and resolving equipment related problems.

Education & Experience:

  • Master's Degree in Electrical Engineering or Bachelor's degree will possess a combination of education and experience commensurate with semiconductor capital equipment development.
  • 5-10 years of experience (depending upon education) in the design of AC/DC power distribution, logic circuits, equipment controls, sensors interface, motion control, pneumatics control and systems integration.
  • Successful candidate should have extensive experience in creating systems that meet safety expectations as determined by SEMI S2, S8, S22 guidelines, IEC, VDE, CE, NFPA 79, NFPA 70, and UL508A.
  • One to two years’ experience in documentation procedures as established in an engineering organization producing capital equipment or an equivalent combination of education and experience for which comparable knowledge, skills, and ability has been achieved.
  • Should have a broad based background in analysis, design and debug of complex electrical and electronic systems.
  • Design, implement, maintain, and improve electrical instruments, equipment, facilities, components, products, and systems for the semiconductor equipment industry.
  • Ability to work constructively with a diverse group of people including global manufacturing engineering personnel to achieve milestones established on complex internal/external projects.
  • Should be well versed with the requirements of CE, NEC , IEC, NFPA, VDE , SEMI S2-95 and other relevant standards as applicable to semiconductor manufacturing equipment.
  • Experienced with EtherCAT, Ethernet, DeviceNet and other networking protocols.
  • Experience with modularizing semiconductor equipment designs for offline assembly.
  • Should be very experienced using Microsoft applications such as Excel, Word, PowerPoint, and Project; Manufacturing Requirements Planning (MRP); AutoCad; OrCad or Altium schematic capture.
  • Ability to travel up to 25%
