Details Concerning Work at Progent

Fulltime Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent wants to hire fulltime, results-driven Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco accredited system engineers who have CCIE certification; security professionals who have CISSP or comparable security certification; and high-end network architecture experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, service continuity, disaster recovery, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for employees who can join Progent's staff of desktop service technicians and remote support experts. Also, Progent is hiring talented managers who can operate productively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of skilled and dedicated professionals, providing attentive client services, and offering a competitive results-focused fee structure, Progent has managed to expand our client list rapidly while delivering consulting support to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and across the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a common information database, and a team approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a loyal client list.

If you are an information technology professional with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or working for our customers can expand your skills through cooperation with our group of highly team-oriented, talented engineers. Our focus on providing information technology consulting and technical support to small companies will offer you the chance to work closely with decision makers and add significantly to the success of dynamic companies.

Progent is hiring consultants who can show verifiable credentials in their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco professionals, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP credential. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or other top security certifications. Of course, we are familiar with "paper experts". Still, the fact that a certificate can not guarantee expertise is no justification for not earning one. If you have mastered your field, then most of these tests should be no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients deserve to see certifications. We will promote your talents, but you must provide standard certifications for Progent to market. If you are adamantly opposed to the concept of credentials, we can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are probably not a good fit.

Enhance Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Working with the Top Group of Network Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a better professional by improving your information technology knowledge and boosting the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the best professional talent for you to operate with, providing an advanced network and communications infrastructure, running custom application tools to enable the highest quality of support, and by optimizing our operational models for finding and retaining customers.

The decisive factor that distinguishes Progent from typical consulting companies is the quality of our support professionals. Out of the scores of consultants who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited top talent covering a wide range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other vital application, we deploy experts who can enable you to be successful on major jobs by combining the collective skills of Progent's group of experts.

To ensure the success of our consultants, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful technology to perform the job efficiently. Progent will exploit technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables effortless communications, collaboration, and information exchange with fellow Progent team members — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of regular commutes to a conventional office building, and all travel you do for on-site customer jobs is determined by your own schedule, not ours. The best benefit is that most of our support work can be performed remotely, representing maximum productivity for billable hours. In fact, some Progent staff do remote consulting exclusively.

Progent's operations are geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to client requirements through information sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Although Progent's consultants operate with a great deal of independence, dispatching is unified, client problems and solutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and archived for easy retrieval, up-to-date engineer schedules are published to facilitate group tasks and enable trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is continually evaluated. We reinforce the sense of connection through monthly team meetings and quarterly corporate events.

The majority of our consultants are situated across California, but we are building a quickly growing group of network experts throughout America. Progent's virtual office environment does away with geographic obstacles that limit the efficiency of traditional company structures. We enhance the deal by providing a comprehensive benefit program to ensure the health and economic welfare of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consultants, our marketing and operations groups live up to the excellence that defines Progent. These high-performance factors behind our growth are helping us to identify and sign up the scores of new clients we are currently engaging every month. Progent recently marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing organization.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with us. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a steady series of network challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Customers rely on consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or entrenched issues, and difficult upgrades are the basis for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for network engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by establishing close customer relationships and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented organization heart and soul. If you do not offer strong people skills or like cooperating with a varied assortment of people, then Progent is probably not a good fit.

If all this seems good to you, we invite you to contact us about our view of the future of network consulting.
