Additional Facts Concerning Work at Progent

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

Progent is seeking to find fulltime, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco certified system engineers with CCIE certification; security professionals who have CISA or equivalent security certification; and advanced system architecture experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high uptime, business continuity, information preservation, and VMware. Progent also seeks professionals to join our staff of desktop support technicians and remote support professionals. In addition, We are seeking talented managers who can perform effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of skilled and motivated professionals, providing attentive customer services, and offering a strong value-based fee model, We have managed to expand our customer base dramatically while delivering professional services to numerous businesses 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 solving have helped Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a loyal client list.

If you are a network consultant with technical support expertise, joining Progent or helping Progent's clients will enhance your skills via interaction with our staff of mutually team-oriented, expert consultants. Progent's commitment to providing network expertise and technical support to small companies will offer you the opportunity to work closely with key players and contribute significantly to the growth of dynamic businesses.

Progent is looking for consultants that can show recognized certification in their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your MCSE credential. For Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, the fact that a credential can not guarantee excellence is no justification for not earning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of those tests should pose no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you are an expert, then clients expect certifications. We can promote your talents, but you must have standard credentials for Progent to market. In case you happen to be strongly opposed to the concept of certifications, we can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Enhance Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining the Top Group of Computer Engineers

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a better consulting professional by enhancing your information technology skills and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the best consulting experts for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art system architecture, using custom application utilities to enable the maximum quality of service, and by optimizing our business models for attracting and keeping clients.

The main factor that differentiates us from ordinary consulting firms is the excellence of our service staff. Among the scores of consulting experts who have joined us, we have recruited the best expertise covering a broad array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Macintosh, Linux, VMware, or other key application, we engage professionals who can help you to be effective on larger jobs by leveraging the aggregate skills of our group of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's team, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful technology to perform the work efficiently. We will leverage information technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables seamless connectivity, cooperation, and information exchange with other Progent team members — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose income because of daily commutes to a physical office building, and all driving you do for in-person client work is based on your schedule, not ours. The best benefit is that most of Progent's consulting work can be performed remotely, representing maximum productivity for billable hours. In practice, some Progent staff do remote support only.

Progent's operations are geared towards responding quickly and effectively to customer needs through information sharing and cooperative problem solving. Even though Progent's engineers operate with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is unified, client problems and solutions are carefully monitored, documented, and organized for convenient retrieval, current consultant schedules are published to streamline team tasks and simplify problem escalation, and customer approval is continually evaluated. We strengthen the sense of connection through monthly team meetings and regular company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's team is situated throughout California, but we are building a rapidly growing team of consulting experts throughout America. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with regional boundaries that restrict the productivity of conventional business structures. We enhance the package by offering a comprehensive benefit plan to promote the physical health and economic security of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, our marketing and administration teams live up to the high standards that characterizes Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s success are helping us to target and land the 50-60 new clients we are currently acquiring each month. We lately celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective sales operation.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with us. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of technical challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Clients choose consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, leading-edge implementations, vexing or chronic problems, and difficult upgrades are the basis for what we do every day. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for computer engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every day enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by establishing strong customer contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their success. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented company through and through. If you do not have excellent communications skills or enjoy working with a diverse group of people, then we are in all likelihood a poor fit.

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