ECi PrintFleet is seeking a Data Collection Definition Specialist to continue to provide the best in software solutions to small and medium-sized businesses.

PrintFleet is a part of the Device Management Business Unit with ECi Software Solutions, a larger worldwide SMB services and software solutions provider. Headquarters is located in Fort Worth Texas, USA and consists of more than fifteen hundred employees located across 4 continents.

PrintFleet is at the heart of the global imaging and printing supply chain. Our technology platform drives the imaging integrated supply chain through partnerships with the who's who of imaging device industry.

Reporting to Development Management, the Data Collection Definition Specialist “owns” the delivery of imaging device model definition information to the broader product organization in the Device Management business unit.
An integral part of the PrintFleet Solution architecture relies on imaging device model specific information being available to the onsite discovery and analysis engine. This information is delivered as both a descriptive model definition and individual model specific data collection instruction files. The information for both delivery mechanisms comes from a variety of sources, including both relationship based documentation, empirical methods deployed globally into the field and use of simulators and laboratories both internal and with our industry partners. The Data Collection Definition Specialist is responsible for working across the Device management organization to gather and interpret these data sources in order to create and maintain/validate both the global model specification databases and the individual data collection definition files.

This is a great role for someone who wants to combine their existing technical and relationship skills with an opportunity to acquire extremely deep imaging industry domain knowledge by working closely with the leading global imaging device manufacturing software engineering groups around the world and with the PrintFleet software development and account management teams. This is a great opportunity to build deep domain knowledge, relationships and a reputation in a multi-billion-dollar global industry.

As a key specialist role, there is a huge opportunity to learn all aspects of the technical operations of a global software company operating in a state of the art Cloud (AWS) environment. Intellectual curiosity, attention to detail, research skills and the desire to learn and participate in the delivery of an industry leading product will be rewarded with a unique opportunity to “learn the trade” from highly experienced professionals who have worked around the world and have deep expertise in the industry.
