Cross Border Talents is recruiting a Senior Vacuum System Engineer to join one of our Clients in Eindhoven, the Netherlands.

Job Mission:

The Vacuum Architect is responsible for the translation of the overall system design into a gas flow & vacuum architecture that secures the requirements for sustained transmission over the scanner optics lifetime and suppression of molecular and particle contamination, throughout the optical column and beyond.

Job Description:

You create the budgets for flow & pressure, particle and molecular contamination;

You define model and design validation tests on the scanner or on offline test setups and evaluate the measurement results to set the path forward and come up with new solutions that take us to the next level;

Where needed, you will negotiate with other projects to optimize the specifications and work out X-project solutions to complex problems;

Next to your experience in gas flows you also have good knowledge of vacuum systems and components that enables you to make the right design choices to achieve the challenging targets for cleanliness and machine availability;

You make sure that the architecture or subsystem is working as intended during the specification phase, together with your team;

Finally, with your expertise you contribute to the knowledge growth of our group, working together and coaching your team members.

Main responsibilities:

  • Understand the mechanism of low-pressure gas & flow in contamination suppression and particle transport;
  • Be a critical partner to other projects to help them reach their targets where it comes to vacuum system aspects;
  • Secure expert coverage of vacuum and sub-atmospheric gas flow aspects in the design process;
  • Perform analyses and calculations to predict the functionality of the flow architecture or subsystems;
  • Create budgets on gas flow, (partial) pressure and out-gassing;
  • Where necessary increase group competence by literature research, experimental testing or cooperation with external research partners;
  • Negotiate, define, document and present the specifications of architecture or subsystem
  • Translate these specifications into conceptual designs and act as counterpart and guidance during the design process;

  • Troubleshoot issues related to the flow architecture, subsystem or module.


Job Requirements:

  • Technical BSc or MSc (preferred) degree in Mechanical Engineering, Applied;
  • Physics, Chemical Engineering or a closely related field of study;
  • Thorough knowledge of gas flow transport phenomena;
  • Solid theoretical and practical experience in vacuum systems and applications related to the field of vacuum and sub-atmospheric gas flows;
  • Profound knowledge of vacuum equipment, experience with vacuum system design.


Soft Skills:

  • Highly motivated team player with excellent social, coordination and communication skills;
  • Able to perform in highly dynamic environment;
  • Ability to organize work effectively and having a systematic approach in problem solving;
