Job Description

ASML is the only company in the world offering extreme ultraviolet lithography machines. These machines are indispensable to producing faster, cheaper and more energy-efficient microchips. In a 2021 New York Times article the ASML machines were labeled “the most complicated machines humans have built”. Since the ASML machines are an important cornerstone in global mega trends like robotics, big data, AI and IoT, the company is expected to continue its growth in the upcoming years to an annual turnover of 28-35 USD Billion by 2025. In this vibrant and exciting environment it is HR’s task to define and execute the companies’ people agenda. Increasingly HR is relying on data driven insights to fulfill this task.

Within ASML, People Analytics resources collaborate in the People Analytics community. The People Analytics community is headed by the Product Owner People Analytics and brings ~15 People Analytics professionals together.
The community consists of three expertise chapters: [1] Data Science, BI and Employee Research, [2] Workday, Advanced Operational Reporting and Integrations, [3] Analytics Translation. The members of the chapters collaborate in varying compositions on a range of HR topics (value streams) like Engagement, Retention, Diversity & Inclusion and Well-being.
