Details Concerning Work at Progent

Fulltime Work for Network Consultants, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco accredited system engineers who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP credentials; security professionals who have CISM or comparable security credentials; and advanced system design consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, service continuity, business continuity, information preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks professionals to join our staff of desktop support technicians and remote troubleshooting experts. Also, Progent is looking for talented administrators able to operate productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of talented and dedicated consultants, providing attentive customer care, and following a strong results-based fee structure, Progent has managed to increase our customer base dramatically while delivering consulting services to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a common information database, and a group approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a skilled staff and a satisfied client base.

For an information technology consultant with technical support experience, joining Progent or helping Progent's customers will expand your knowledge via interaction with our group of highly team-oriented, talented consultants. Our commitment to providing information technology consulting and computer help to small companies will give you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add significantly to the growth of exciting companies.

Progent is looking for technical professionals that can show recognized certification related to their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your MCSE certificate. For Cisco consultants, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security credentials. Naturally, Progent is aware of "paper experts". Still, the fact that a certificate does not guarantee excellence is no reason for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of those certifications should be no challenge. The point is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients expect credentials. Progent can market your skills, but you must provide basic credentials for us to market. If you happen to be adamantly opposed to the concept of certifications, we can understand and respect your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Improve Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Computer Engineers

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a better consultant by improving your technical knowledge and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the top consulting talent for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, using custom software utilities to enable the highest quality of service, and by optimizing proven business structures for attracting and keeping clients.

The most important factor that separates Progent from typical consulting companies is the high quality of our consultants. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have joined us, we have recruited the best talent across a broad range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other key areas, we engage professionals who can enable you to be successful on larger jobs by combining the aggregate experience of our team of professionals.

To promote the success of Progent's team, we invest significantly in making available the best tools to perform the work properly. We will exploit technology to an extraordinary degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows effortless connectivity, collaboration, and information exchange with fellow Progent consultants — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue with regular commutes to a conventional office, and all travel you do for on-site customer jobs is based on your time table, not ours. The most attractive part is that much of Progent's support work can be done remotely, offering 100% productivity for billable hours. In practice, some of our team members do remote consulting exclusively.

Our operations are set up for responding quickly and effectively to client needs through knowledge sharing and cooperative problem solving. Even though our engineers operate with a high level of freedom, dispatching is unified, client issues and solutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and archived for easy reference, current consultant availability is broadcast to facilitate group projects and simplify problem escalation, and client satisfaction is always evaluated. We reinforce the sense of connection via monthly team meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's team is located throughout California, however we are building a rapidly expanding team of network experts throughout the United States. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic boundaries that limit the efficiency of conventional company structures. We complete the package by providing a comprehensive employee care program to promote the health and financial welfare of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, our sales and operations teams match the high standards that defines Progent. These high-performance contributors to our growth are helping us to identify and sign up the scores of new clients we are now acquiring every month. Progent recently celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also a strong marketing organization.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with us. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a steady series of technical challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Clients choose consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, advanced deployments, puzzling or chronic issues, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for our services daily. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for network engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every day excited about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by building close customer relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented organization heart and soul. If you don’t have excellent communications skills or like working with a varied assortment of personalities, then we are in all likelihood not a good match.

If this seems right for you, we urge you to contact Progent about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
