Co-Designing the Enterprise Taxonomy


The Knowledge Management (KM) Capability sits at the intersection of enterprise platform service design, semantic data engineering, and taxonomy governance for the organization. The team operates in a multi-faceted role, which includes performing complex data analysis to improve knowledge representation and consumption of unstructured data in systems, develop data transformation pipelines that join multiple data sets in the ASML knowledge graph, and collaborating across the organization to help define the customer experience for knowledge discovery and access on the Progress Semaphore platform. Members of the KM team own the end-to-end development of knowledge graph features for ASML recommendation engines, data, and content domains, using both industry standards and proprietary technical tools.


As a Semantic/Knowledge Engineer on the KM team, you will contribute to projects focusing on the design, creation, and deployment of knowledge models that translate business needs and domain expertise into machine actionable platform level services. Primary responsibilities will include:

  • Co-Designing the Enterprise Taxonomy in partnership with Learning & Knowledge Management department and several IT Teams 
  • Leading all aspects of Design, Publish & Maintenance of Enterprise Taxonomy Artifacts, Best Practices, Guiding Principles, Methodologies, and Standards 
  • Oversight of ASML's metadata assets, primarily taxonomy, ontology, and content data
  • Supporting current semantic structures, such as multiple ontologies and knowledge graphs, though semantic modeling techniques
  • Modeling metadata and ontology schema to develop new semantic representations for supporting recommendation functionality
  • Working with internal teams to guide the development and usage of knowledge structures that enable actionable information to data consumers and applications
  • Supporting current and establishing new ETL processing rules and data workflows to support and grow current infrastructure
  • Collaborating with Product, Software Development and Content teams to support current and future API integrations for semantically enabled applications, including recommendation functionality.
  • Working with domain and business experts to translate requirements into knowledge models that support machine decision making
