We’re talking about the lead supplier of photolithography systems for the semiconductor industry. During this two-year traineeship, you’ll get the opportunity to develop yourself as a Lead Designer in this challenging high tech environment. Your personal development will get a kick out of ORMIT's state-of-the-art development program with a strong focus on leadership.


Your role as LEAD DESIGNER trainee 

As a lead designer, you specify, design and test constructions and service mechanisms with a team of design engineers within the restrictions imposed by technical specifications, costs, and planning.

You’ll work to develop products that meet all specifications, and that deviations are accepted. You’ll ensure that product specifications are feasible, known to all relevant parties, and that the relevant underlying assumptions and restrictions are understood. You’ll be responsible for keeping technical product documentation (TPD) up-to-date and of good quality. But most importantly, you’ll be part of a team full of skilled and motivated people with a passion for technology.

And more....

You are responsible for the design of a mechanical (sub-)module, and you will ensure specifications regarding safety, reliability, stability, contamination-free, cost-effectiveness, manufacturability and serviceability. You continuously work on improving the mechanical architecture within multidisciplinary projects together with our mechanical team. Next to that, it’s about:

  • Translate performance specifications into design specifications.
  • Creation and validation of new concepts.
  • Prepare planning for modules and sub-modules.
  • Optimization of the design, with a team of designers.
  • Supplier contact for design and drawing reviews on manufacturability.
  • Definition and execution of final tests to verify the specifications.
  • Cooperation with module integration into complex systems.
  • Interfaces with Project Leader and Architects.

Your future workplace

You will be based at a successful Dutch high-tech company that produces complex lithographic machines which supply chip producers with the necessary production capabilities for IC’s. This company is a precursor in the world of technology and delivers systems to all leading chip producers worldwide. The more than 23.000 employees of this company based in Eindhoven are part of the most creative thinkers in physics, mathematics, chemistry, mechatronics, optics, mechanics, software and computer science. On a daily basis, they work together in close multidisciplinary teams where they listen to, learn from and share ideas.
