Additional Facts About Work at Progent

Fulltime Work for Network Engineers, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire full-time, results-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco accredited system consultants with Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security consultants with CISSP or comparable security credentials; and high-end system design experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, service continuity, disaster recovery, data preservation, and VMware. Progent also seeks professionals to join our staff of desktop support technicians and off-site troubleshooting professionals. In addition, We are hiring talented managers who can perform effectively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of talented and dedicated professionals, providing attentive client services, and following a strong results-focused fee model, We have managed to expand our customer base rapidly while delivering professional support to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common knowledge database, and a team strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a skilled staff and a satisfied customer list.

If you are an information technology professional with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or helping our customers can enhance your knowledge through interaction with our staff of highly team-oriented, expert engineers. Our focus on delivering network expertise and computer support to small organizations will offer you the chance to work closely with decision makers and add appreciably to the success of dynamic businesses.

Progent is looking for consultants who can show verifiable credentials related to their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your Microsoft MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco experts, have your CCIE or CCNP credential. For network security, you should have you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other leading security credentials. Naturally, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, the fact that a credential can not ensure expertise is no reason for not owning one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of those certifications should present no challenge. The point is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then clients deserve to see certifications. We will broadcast your talents, but you must have basic credentials for us to market. In case you stand adamantly opposed to the concept of certifications, Progent can understand and honor your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

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

Progent's work environment will make you a better consulting professional by improving your technical skills and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the best professional experts for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art system architecture, using custom software utilities to deliver the highest level of service, and by streamlining our business structures for attracting and retaining clients.

The main factor that separates Progent from typical consulting firms is the high quality of our consulting team. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have assembled the best expertise across a wide array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Apple, Linux, VMware, or other vital technologies, we engage professionals who can enable you to be successful on major projects by combining the collective experience of our team of professionals.

To promote the success of Progent's team, we invest heavily in making available the best tools to perform the job properly. Progent will leverage information technology to an extraordinary degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows seamless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent team members — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or lose income with daily commutes to a conventional office, and any driving you do for on-site customer jobs is determined by your time table, not ours. The best part is that much of Progent's consulting work can be performed off-site, offering maximum efficiency for billable time. In fact, some of our staff do off-site support only.

Progent's business structure is set up for responding rapidly and effectively to customer requirements through knowledge sharing and collaborative problem solving. Even though Progent's consultants operate with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, customer problems and resolutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and archived for convenient retrieval, up-to-date engineer schedules are published to facilitate team projects and enable trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is continually evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation via monthly team conferences and quarterly corporate events.

Most of Progent's team is situated throughout Northern California, however Progent is attracting a quickly growing group of network experts throughout the U.S. Our virtual office environment eliminates geographic boundaries that restrict the productivity of conventional business models. We complete the package by providing a full benefit program to promote the physical health and economic security of our team members and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, Progent's sales and administration teams live up to the high standards that characterizes Progent. These high-performance contributors to our growth are enabling us to target and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are currently acquiring each month. We lately celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong sales operation.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a key for growth with us. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of network challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Clients choose consulting firms to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, leading-edge implementations, vexing or entrenched issues, and difficult upgrades are the basis for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for network engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every day excited about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will meet some great folks, both by building strong client contacts and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization from top to bottom. If you do not offer strong communications skills or like working with a diverse group of people, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor fit.

If all this sounds right for you, we invite you to talk to us about our view of the new paradigm of network consulting.
