More Information Concerning Work at Progent

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

Progent wants to hire fulltime, results-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco certified system consultants who have Cisco credentials; security consultants who have CISM or comparable security certification; and advanced network architecture experts with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, high uptime, disaster recovery, data protection, and VMware. Progent also seeks employees who can work on our staff of helpdesk service technicians and off-site support experts. In addition, Progent is seeking talented managers who can perform productively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of skilled and dedicated consultants, delivering world-class customer services, and offering a strong value-focused pricing structure, Progent has managed to expand our customer list dramatically while delivering professional support to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a common knowledge database, and a group approach to problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a loyal client list.

For a network consultant with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or helping our clients will expand your skills through cooperation with Progent's group of highly supportive, talented consultants. Progent's focus on delivering information technology expertise and technical help to small organizations will give you the chance to work intimately with decision makers and add significantly to the success of dynamic companies.

Progent is hiring technical professionals who have recognized credentials related to their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco professionals, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should show you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or other top security credentials. Naturally, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Still, simply because a certificate can not ensure excellence is no justification for not having one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of those certifications should pose no great difficulty. The point is that if you are an expert, then customers expect credentials. We can broadcast your skills, but you must have standard certifications for Progent to work with. In case you are adamantly opposed to the idea of credentials, we can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

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

Progent's business climate will make you a better professional by improving your information technology skills and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the top professional experts for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, using proprietary application utilities to enable the maximum level of service, and by streamlining proven business structures for attracting and keeping clients.

The most important factor that distinguishes us from other network support firms is the quality of our consultants. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled top expertise covering a broad array of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Apple, Linux, virtual servers, or other key application, we deploy experts who can enable you to be successful on major projects by combining the collective experience of Progent's group of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's team, we invest significantly in providing the best tools to do the job properly. Progent will exploit information technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables seamless communications, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with other Progent consultants — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose revenue with daily drives to a physical office building, and any travel you do for on-site client work is based on your schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that most of Progent's consulting services can be done off-site, representing 100% productivity for income-producing hours. In practice, some Progent staff do remote support only.

Progent's operations are geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to customer requirements through information exchange and collaborative problem solving. Even though Progent's consultants operate with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is centralized, customer problems and resolutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and organized for easy reference, up-to-date consultant availability is broadcast to streamline team projects and simplify trouble escalation, and client approval is always monitored. We reinforce the feeling of connection through monthly workgroup conferences and quarterly corporate events.

Most of Progent's consultants are situated across California, but Progent is building a rapidly expanding team of network experts throughout the U.S. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with regional boundaries that limit the efficiency of traditional company models. We enhance the deal by offering a full employee care plan to promote the physical health and economic security of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and administration groups match the high standards that defines Progent. These top-notch factors behind our success are helping us to identify and land the scores of new clients we are currently engaging every month. Progent recently celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing operation.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for success with us. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in information technology. Being exposed to a steady series of technical challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Clients rely on consulting firms to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, advanced deployments, puzzling or chronic issues, and tricky migrations are the foundation for our services every day. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for network engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every morning excited about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by establishing close client contacts and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization heart and soul. If you do not offer strong people skills or enjoy working with a varied assortment of people, then we are in all likelihood not a good fit.

If all this sounds good to you, we invite you to contact us about our view of the future of information technology consulting.

Enjoy Quality of Life Benefits and Technical Success with
Our Advanced Virtual Office Environment
