More Information Concerning Work at Progent

Fulltime Work for Network Engineers, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire full-time, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco accredited network consultants who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security professionals who have CISM or equivalent security credentials; and high-end network architecture experts with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high uptime, workplace recovery, information protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for professionals to work on our team of desktop support technicians and remote support experts. Also, Progent is looking for talented administrators able to operate effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and motivated consultants, providing world-class client care, and following a competitive results-focused fee structure, Progent has been able to expand our customer list rapidly while providing consulting services to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common knowledge base, and a team strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a loyal customer list.

For an information technology consultant with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or working for our customers will expand your knowledge via cooperation with Progent's group of highly supportive, talented consultants. Progent's commitment to delivering network expertise and technical support to small and midsize companies will offer you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with key players and add significantly to the success of dynamic businesses.

We are hiring technical professionals that can show recognized certification in their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security credentials. Of course, we are aware of "paper experts". Nevertheless, the fact that a credential can not guarantee excellence is no reason for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then most of those certifications should present no challenge. The point is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then clients deserve to see credentials. Progent can broadcast your talents, but you need to have basic certifications for us to market. If you are strongly against the concept of certifications, we can understand and respect your position, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Enhance Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Working with the Top Group of Network Engineers

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a better professional by improving your technical knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your clients. Progent makes good on this commitment by recruiting the best professional experts for you to work with, providing an advanced system architecture, using specialized software tools to enable the maximum level of support, and by optimizing proven operational models for finding and maintaining customers.

The decisive factor that separates us from typical consulting companies is the high quality of our support professionals. Out of the scores of consultants who have joined us, we have assembled the best expertise across a broad array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other key technologies, we deploy experts who can help you to be successful on major jobs by combining the collective experience of our team of professionals.

To promote the success of Progent's team, we invest significantly in making available the best technology to do the work properly. We will exploit information technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables effortless connectivity, cooperation, and information sharing with fellow Progent consultants — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit revenue because of regular drives to a physical office, and all driving you do for in-person client jobs is based on your own time table, not Progent's. The best benefit is that most of Progent's support work can be performed remotely, representing maximum efficiency for income-producing time. In fact, some Progent staff do remote consulting exclusively.

Our operations are set up for reacting quickly and effectively to client requirements via knowledge exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Even though our engineers operate with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, customer problems and resolutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and organized for convenient retrieval, current engineer schedules are broadcast to facilitate group projects and simplify problem escalation, and customer approval is continually evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation via monthly team meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of our consultants are situated across California, however Progent is attracting a rapidly growing group of consulting professionals throughout the U.S. Our virtual office environment does away with regional boundaries that restrict the productivity of traditional company structures. We complete the deal by offering a full employee care plan to promote the physical health and economic welfare of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and operations groups live up to the high standards that characterizes Progent. These top-notch factors behind our growth are enabling us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are currently engaging every month. We recently marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective marketing organization.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a key for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of technical challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Customers choose consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or chronic issues, and tricky migrations are the basis for what we do every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for network engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every day enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some great people, both by building strong customer contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization heart and soul. If you do not have excellent communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied group of personalities, then we are in all likelihood a poor match.

If this seems good to you, we urge you to talk to Progent about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.
