Details Concerning Jobs at Progent

Fulltime Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent wants to hire fulltime, results-driven Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco accredited system engineers with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security consultants with CISSP or equivalent security certification; and high-end network design experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, service continuity, disaster recovery, information preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks employees to join Progent's staff of helpdesk service technicians and off-site support experts. Also, Progent is looking for experienced managers able to perform effectively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of talented and dedicated consultants, delivering attentive customer care, and offering a strong results-based pricing structure, We have been able to increase our client list rapidly while providing consulting services to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a common information base, and a team approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a satisfied client base.

For a network professional with troubleshooting experience, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's customers will expand your skills through interaction with Progent's group of mutually team-oriented, talented consultants. Progent's focus on delivering network consulting and technical support to small companies will offer you the chance to collaborate closely with key players and add significantly to the success of dynamic businesses.

We are looking for consultants that can show recognized credentials in their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your MCSE certificate. For Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other top security credentials. Naturally, we are aware of "paper experts". Still, the fact that a credential does not ensure excellence is no justification for not owning one. If you know your field, then most of those tests should pose no challenge. The point is that if you are an expert, then customers deserve to see credentials. Progent will promote your skills, but you must have a baseline of certifications for Progent to market. In case you happen to be adamantly against the idea of certifications, Progent can understand and respect your opinion, but you are likely not a good fit.

Enhance Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Working with a Great Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's work environment will make you a more capable professional by improving your information technology knowledge and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the best professional talent for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, running proprietary software tools to enable the maximum level of service, and by optimizing proven business models for finding and keeping clients.

The most important factor that distinguishes Progent from other network support firms is the high caliber of our consultants. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have joined Progent, we have assembled top expertise across a wide array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other crucial application, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be successful on major jobs by leveraging the aggregate skills of our team of experts.

To ensure the success of our consultants, we invest heavily in making available the best tools to do the work efficiently. We will exploit technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables effortless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent team members — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue with regular drives to a conventional office, and all travel you do for on-site client jobs is based on your own schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that most of Progent's support work can be performed off-site, representing maximum productivity for income-producing hours. In practice, some of our staff do off-site consulting exclusively.

Progent's business structure is geared towards reacting rapidly and effectively to client requirements through knowledge exchange and collaborative problem solving. Although our engineers operate with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is unified, customer issues and resolutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and organized for easy reference, current engineer schedules are published to facilitate team projects and simplify problem escalation, and client approval is continually evaluated. We reinforce the sense of connection via monthly team conferences and regular company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's consultants are located throughout Northern California, however we are building a rapidly growing group of consulting experts throughout the United States. Our virtual office environment eliminates geographic boundaries that restrict the productivity of conventional company structures. We enhance the package by offering a comprehensive benefit plan to ensure the health and financial security of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, our sales and administration teams match the excellence that is Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s success are helping us to identify and land the 50-60 new clients we are currently acquiring each month. Progent recently marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “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 Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of network challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Clients choose consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, advanced implementations, puzzling or chronic issues, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for what we do every day. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for network professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will meet some great people, both by building strong client contacts and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused organization from top to bottom. If you don’t offer excellent people skills or like working with a diverse group of people, then we are probably not a good match.

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