Details Concerning Jobs at Progent

Career Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire staff-level, results-driven Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco certified network consultants who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP credentials; security professionals with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security credentials; and advanced system architecture experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, workplace recovery, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for employees who can work on Progent's team of helpdesk service specialists and off-site support experts. Also, Progent is hiring experienced managers who can operate productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and dedicated professionals, providing attentive client services, and offering a strong results-focused pricing structure, We have managed to increase our customer list dramatically while delivering professional support to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared knowledge database, and a group approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a talented staff and a satisfied customer base.

If you are an information technology consultant with technical support experience, joining Progent or helping Progent's clients will enhance your knowledge through cooperation with our staff of highly supportive, expert consultants. Our commitment to delivering network expertise and computer help to small and midsize organizations will offer you the chance to work intimately with key players and add significantly to the growth of exciting businesses.

We are hiring technical professionals who have verifiable credentials related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft MCSE certificate. For Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security credentials. Naturally, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Still, the fact that a credential can not ensure excellence is no reason for not earning one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of these certifications should present no challenge. The bottom line is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients deserve to see credentials. We can broadcast your skills, but you should provide basic credentials for Progent to market. If you are strongly against the idea of credentials, we can understand and respect your position, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Working with the Top Group of Computer Consultants

Progent's company culture will allow you to become a better consulting professional by improving your information technology skills and boosting the loyalty of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the top consulting talent for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, running custom application tools to deliver the highest level of service, and by optimizing proven business structures for attracting and keeping customers.

The main factor that separates Progent from most consulting companies is the excellence of our consultants. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have joined us, we have assembled the best expertise across a wide range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Mac, Linux, VMware, or other crucial technologies, we deploy experts who can help you to be successful on larger jobs by combining the aggregate experience of Progent's group of professionals.

To promote the productivity of our team, we invest significantly in making available the best tools to perform the job efficiently. We will leverage technology to an extraordinary degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows effortless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with other Progent team members — all from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit income with daily commutes to a physical office, and all travel you do for on-site customer work is determined by your own schedule, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that most of our support work can be done off-site, representing 100% productivity for income-producing hours. In fact, some Progent staff do remote support only.

Progent's business structure is set up for reacting quickly and efficiently to client requirements via knowledge exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Although our engineers work with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is unified, customer problems and resolutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and organized for convenient reference, up-to-date consultant availability is published to streamline team tasks and enable problem escalation, and client satisfaction is always monitored. We strengthen the sense of connection via monthly team conferences and regular company-wide events.

Most of Progent's consultants are located across Northern California, however we are building a quickly growing team of consulting experts from across the U.S. Our virtual office environment does away with geographic boundaries that restrict the efficiency of traditional business models. We complete the package by providing a comprehensive employee care program to promote the physical health and financial security of our team members and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, Progent's marketing and administration teams live up to the high standards that defines Progent. These high-performance factors behind our growth are enabling us to target and sign up the scores of new customers we are currently acquiring each month. Progent recently marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective sales organization.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being exposed to a steady series of technical challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Customers choose a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, advanced implementations, vexing or chronic problems, and tricky upgrades are the basis for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for network engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by establishing close client relationships and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused organization heart and soul. If you do not have strong people skills or enjoy working with a diverse group of people, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor match.

If this sounds good to you, we invite you to talk to Progent about our view of the future of information technology consulting.

Enjoy Lifestyle Benefits and Technical Success with
Our Advanced Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent is convinced that a well architected and implemented network is a pivotal piece for accelerating a firm's growth, and we apply this belief in our own network environment.
