Additional Facts About Jobs at Progent

Career Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire staff-level, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco certified system engineers with Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security professionals who have CISSP or equivalent security certification; and high-end network design experts with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high availability, disaster recovery, information protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for professionals who can join our staff of desktop support technicians and off-site support professionals. In addition, We are hiring talented managers able to perform productively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of skilled and dedicated professionals, delivering attentive customer services, and following a competitive results-focused fee structure, Progent has managed to expand our client list rapidly while delivering consulting support to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and across the United States.

We are hiring consultants who can show verifiable certification related to their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your MCSE certificate. For Cisco experts, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For security, you should show you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security credentials. Naturally, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Still, simply because a certificate does not guarantee expertise is no excuse for not earning one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of those tests should be no challenge. The bottom line is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients deserve to see credentials. Progent will broadcast your skills, but you need to have standard credentials for us to market. In case you happen to be strongly against the idea of certifications, we can understand and respect your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Consultants don’t throw away time or lose income because of regular commutes to a conventional office, and any driving you do for in-person customer jobs is based on your time table, not ours. The best benefit is that much of Progent's support work can be done off-site, representing 100% productivity for income-producing time. In practice, some Progent staff do off-site support only.

Our operations are set up for responding quickly and effectively to client needs via information exchange and cooperative problem solving. Although Progent's engineers operate with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is unified, client problems and resolutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and organized for convenient reference, current consultant schedules are broadcast to facilitate group tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and customer approval is always evaluated.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a continual series of technical challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Customers choose consultants to perform the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, advanced implementations, vexing or chronic issues, and difficult migrations are the basis for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for computer engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every day enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will meet some great people, both by building close client contacts and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization through and through. If you do not offer strong communications skills or like working with a diverse assortment of people, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good match.
