Additional Facts About Work at Progent

Staff Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent wants to hire fulltime, results-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco accredited network engineers who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security consultants who have CISA or equivalent security credentials; and high-end system design experts with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, fault tolerance, disaster recovery, data preservation, and VMware. Progent also is hiring employees to work on our team of helpdesk support specialists and remote support professionals. In addition, We are seeking experienced managers able to perform effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of talented and dedicated professionals, providing world-class customer care, and following a strong value-based fee model, Progent has managed to increase our customer base rapidly while delivering consulting services to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common knowledge base, and a team strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a talented staff and a satisfied client base.

If you are an information technology professional with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or helping Progent's clients will expand your knowledge via cooperation with our staff of highly team-oriented, talented engineers. Progent's commitment to providing network expertise and computer support to small and midsize organizations will give you the chance to collaborate closely with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the success of exciting businesses.

We are looking for consultants that have verifiable credentials in their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. In the case of Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should show you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or other leading security certifications. Naturally, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Still, simply because a certificate does not guarantee excellence is no reason for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of these tests should be no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you are a professional, then customers expect certifications. Progent will broadcast your talents, but you should have a baseline of credentials for us to market. If you stand strongly against the idea of certifications, we can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are likely not a good candidate.

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

Progent's productive atmosphere will allow you to become a more capable consulting professional by improving your information technology skills and increasing the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the best consulting experts for you to work with, offering an advanced system infrastructure, running custom software utilities to enable the maximum level of service, and by streamlining our operational structures for finding and maintaining clients.

The decisive factor that distinguishes us from most consulting companies is the excellence of our consultants. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited top expertise covering a wide array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Apple, Linux, server virtualization, or other crucial areas, we deploy professionals who can help you to be successful on larger jobs by combining the aggregate skills of Progent's team of experts.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's team, we invest heavily in providing the best technology to do the work properly. Progent will exploit information technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables effortless connectivity, cooperation, and information exchange with other Progent consultants — all from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose income because of regular drives to a physical office building, and all travel you do for in-person customer jobs is based on your schedule, not ours. The best part is that much of our support services can be performed remotely, offering maximum productivity for billable time. In practice, some of our staff do off-site support only.

Progent's business structure is geared towards responding rapidly and effectively to customer requirements via knowledge exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Although our consultants operate with a high level of independence, resource allocation is centralized, client problems and resolutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and archived for easy retrieval, up-to-date engineer availability is broadcast to facilitate team tasks and enable trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is always evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of connection via periodic team meetings and quarterly corporate events.

Most of Progent's team is situated across California, but we are attracting a quickly growing group of network experts from across America. Progent's virtual office environment eliminates geographic obstacles that limit the efficiency of conventional company models. We enhance the package by providing a full employee care program to promote the health and economic security of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, Progent's sales and operations teams live up to the excellence that defines Progent. These high-performance factors behind our growth are helping us to identify and land the 50-60 new clients we are currently acquiring each month. Progent lately celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing organization.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a continual series of technical challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Clients choose a consultant to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, leading-edge deployments, vexing or chronic problems, and tricky upgrades are the basis for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for computer engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by establishing close customer relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you do not offer excellent communications skills or like cooperating with a varied group of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor fit.

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