Details Concerning Jobs at Progent

Staff Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, results-driven Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco certified network engineers with CCIE credentials; security professionals with CISM or equivalent security credentials; and high-end network architecture consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high uptime, disaster recovery, data protection, and virtual servers. Progent also seeks professionals who can work on our team of helpdesk support specialists and remote support experts. In addition, We are looking for talented managers who can perform effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of skilled and dedicated consultants, providing world-class customer care, and offering a strong results-focused fee model, Progent has managed to expand our client base rapidly while delivering professional support to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared information database, and a team strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied customer base.

For an information technology professional with technical support expertise, joining Progent or helping our customers will expand your skills via interaction with our group of mutually supportive, expert consultants. Progent's commitment to providing network expertise and computer help to small companies will offer you the opportunity to work intimately with key players and add appreciably to the growth of exciting businesses.

We are hiring technical professionals who have verifiable credentials related to their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco experts, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP credential. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or one of the other leading security credentials. Naturally, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” However, the fact that a credential does not ensure expertise is no justification for not owning one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of these tests should be no challenge. The point is that if you are an expert, then customers deserve to see credentials. We can promote your skills, but you need to provide a baseline of certifications for us to market. In case you happen to be adamantly against the idea of credentials, we can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Progent makes good on this commitment by recruiting the top professional experts for you to work with, providing an advanced system architecture, using proprietary software utilities to enable the highest quality of support, and by streamlining proven operational structures for finding and keeping clients.

To ensure the success of our consultants, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful tools to do the job efficiently. We will leverage information technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows effortless communications, cooperation, and information exchange with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue with regular drives to a physical office building, and any driving you do for on-site customer jobs is based on your own schedule, not Progent's. The best part is that most of Progent's support services can be done remotely, representing maximum productivity for income-producing time. In practice, some of our staff do remote support exclusively.

Our operations are set up for responding quickly and effectively to customer needs via information exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Even though our consultants work with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is unified, customer problems and solutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and organized for convenient retrieval, up-to-date engineer schedules are broadcast to facilitate group projects and simplify trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is always monitored. We strengthen the sense of cooperation through periodic workgroup meetings and regular company-wide events.

Most of our team is situated across California, however Progent is building a rapidly expanding group of network experts throughout America. Progent's virtual office environment eliminates regional obstacles that limit the efficiency of conventional business structures. We enhance the deal by providing a full employee care plan to promote the physical health and economic security of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, our marketing and administration teams live up to the high standards that defines Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s growth are helping us to target and land the 50-60 new customers we are now engaging every month. We recently celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong marketing operation.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a key for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a continual series of network challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Clients choose consultants to do the toughest jobs. Creative projects, advanced deployments, vexing or entrenched issues, and difficult migrations are the foundation for our services daily. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for network professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by building strong client contacts and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused organization heart and soul. If you do not offer strong communications skills or enjoy working with a varied assortment of people, then we are probably a poor match.

If all this seems right for you, we invite you to contact Progent about our view of the future of network consulting.
