Additional Facts About Work at Progent

Staff Work for Network Engineers, Computer Service Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to find fulltime, results-driven Microsoft certified engineers with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco certified system engineers with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security professionals who have CISSP or comparable security credentials; and advanced system architecture consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high uptime, disaster recovery, information protection, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks employees who can join our staff of help desk service specialists and off-site troubleshooting professionals. In addition, We are hiring experienced administrators able to perform productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of talented and dedicated consultants, delivering attentive customer care, and offering a competitive value-based fee model, We have been able to increase our customer base rapidly while providing professional services to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a common knowledge base, and a team strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a loyal customer list.

For a network professional with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's customers can expand your skills through interaction with our group of mutually team-oriented, talented consultants. Progent's commitment to delivering information technology consulting and technical support to small companies will give you the opportunity to collaborate closely with decision makers and contribute significantly to the success of exciting businesses.

We are looking for technical professionals who can show recognized certification in their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. In the case of Cisco consultants, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should show you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security certifications. Of course, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, the fact that a credential does not ensure excellence is no excuse for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of those tests should be no challenge. The point is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers expect credentials. We will broadcast your talents, but you need to have a baseline of certifications for Progent to work with. If you stand adamantly opposed to the idea of credentials, we can understand and respect your position, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Enhance Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Network Consultants

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a better professional by improving your technical skills and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by recruiting the best consulting experts for you to operate with, providing an advanced system infrastructure, running custom application utilities to deliver the highest level of service, and by streamlining our operational structures for attracting and keeping customers.

The main factor that differentiates Progent from ordinary consulting companies is the quality of our support professionals. Among the 50 or so consultants who have joined Progent, we have recruited the best talent across a wide array of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other key application, we deploy professionals who can help you to be successful on larger projects by combining the aggregate experience of our group of experts.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest significantly in providing the best technology to do the job properly. We will leverage information technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables effortless communications, cooperation, and information exchange with fellow Progent team members — entirely from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit income because of daily commutes to a physical office building, and all travel you do for on-site client work is determined by your own schedule, not Progent's. The best part is that much of our consulting work can be performed off-site, representing 100% efficiency for income-producing time. In fact, some of our team members do remote support only.

Progent's operations are set up for responding rapidly and effectively to customer needs through knowledge exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Although our consultants work with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is centralized, customer problems and solutions are carefully monitored, documented, and organized for convenient retrieval, current consultant schedules are broadcast to facilitate team tasks and enable problem escalation, and client satisfaction is always monitored. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation through monthly team meetings and quarterly corporate events.

Most of our team is situated throughout California, but Progent is building a rapidly expanding team of consulting experts throughout the U.S. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic boundaries that restrict the productivity of conventional business models. We complete the package by providing a comprehensive employee care plan to promote the health and financial security of our team members and their families.

Just as we have awesome consultants, our sales and operations groups match the high standards that defines Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s growth are helping us to target and land the scores of new clients we are now acquiring each month. We lately celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective sales organization.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a continual series of network challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Customers choose a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, advanced implementations, puzzling or chronic issues, and tricky upgrades are the basis for our services daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for computer engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning excited about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will meet some great people, both by establishing strong customer contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization through and through. If you do not offer excellent communications skills or enjoy working with a varied group of personalities, then we are probably not a good fit.

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