Details Concerning Jobs at Progent

Staff Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited network consultants with Cisco certification; security consultants with CISM or equivalent security credentials; and advanced system design consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, workplace recovery, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also seeks professionals who can join our staff of helpdesk support technicians and remote troubleshooting experts. Also, Progent is seeking talented administrators able to perform effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of talented and motivated professionals, delivering world-class client services, and following a strong value-based pricing structure, Progent has been able to expand our customer list rapidly while providing professional services to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a shared knowledge base, and a team approach to problem solving have helped Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a satisfied client list.

If you are a network consultant with technical support experience, joining Progent or helping Progent's clients can enhance your knowledge through cooperation with our staff of mutually team-oriented, expert engineers. Progent's focus on providing network consulting and computer support to small and midsize organizations will give you the opportunity to work intimately with decision makers and contribute significantly to the growth of exciting businesses.

We are looking for technical professionals that have recognized certification related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your MCSE credential. For Cisco experts, have your CCIE or CCNP credential. For network security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other top security credentials. Naturally, we are aware of "paper experts". Still, the fact that a certificate can not guarantee expertise is no reason for not earning one. If you know your field, then the majority of those certifications should pose no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you are an expert, then customers deserve to see certifications. We will broadcast your talents, but you should have standard certifications for Progent to market. In case you stand adamantly against the concept of credentials, Progent can understand and honor your position, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Enhance Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Network Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will allow you to become a better professional by improving your technical knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your customers. Progent delivers on this commitment by recruiting the top consulting experts for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, using specialized application utilities to enable the maximum quality of support, and by streamlining our operational structures for finding and keeping customers.

The decisive factor that distinguishes Progent from ordinary network support companies is the high quality of our service staff. Among the 50 or so consultants who have joined us, we have assembled top expertise across a broad range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other vital technologies, we engage professionals who can enable you to be successful on larger projects by leveraging the aggregate experience of Progent's group of professionals.

To promote the success of our team, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful tools to perform the work efficiently. We will exploit technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows effortless communications, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with other Progent team members — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or lose income with daily drives to a conventional office, and all driving you do for on-site client work is based on your schedule, not ours. The best part is that most of Progent's consulting work can be performed remotely, representing maximum efficiency for billable time. In fact, some of our staff do off-site consulting only.

Progent's operations are geared towards reacting quickly and efficiently to client requirements via information exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Even though Progent's consultants operate with a high level of independence, dispatching is unified, client problems and resolutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and archived for convenient reference, up-to-date consultant schedules are broadcast to facilitate team tasks and enable trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is always evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation via monthly team conferences and regular company-wide events.

Most of Progent's team is located across California, however we are attracting a rapidly growing group of network professionals throughout the U.S. Our virtual office environment eliminates geographic boundaries that limit the efficiency of conventional business models. We enhance the deal by providing a full benefit program to ensure the physical health and financial security of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consultants, Progent's sales and operations groups match the excellence that defines Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s success are enabling us to target and land the 50-60 new customers we are now acquiring each month. We recently celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing operation.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with us. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of network challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Customers rely on consulting firms to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, advanced deployments, vexing or chronic issues, and difficult migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for network professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every morning excited about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will meet some great people, both by building strong customer relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company from top to bottom. If you don’t have excellent people skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse assortment of personalities, then we are probably not a good match.

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

Get Lifestyle Improvements and Professional Success with
Our Advanced Virtual Office Environment

Progent is convinced that a well designed and executed network can be a crucial factor for accelerating a company's growth, and we follow this philosophy in our corporate system infrastructure. We have built a fault-tolerant virtual office infrastructure that allows Progent's staff consultants and certified contractors to offer fast and efficient support, cooperate easily on sophisticated jobs, and experience career and private growth from acting as part of an exciting company culture of self motivation and independence.
