Additional Facts About Work at Progent

Career Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent wants to find full-time, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco accredited system consultants who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security professionals who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security credentials; and high-end system architecture consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high availability, disaster recovery, data protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring employees to work on our team of helpdesk support technicians and off-site troubleshooting professionals. In addition, Progent is seeking experienced managers able to operate effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of skilled and motivated professionals, delivering world-class client care, and offering a competitive results-focused fee structure, We have been able to expand our customer base rapidly while delivering consulting support to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common information database, and a team approach to problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a loyal customer list.

For an information technology professional with technical support experience, joining Progent or helping our customers can expand your skills via cooperation with Progent's staff of highly team-oriented, talented consultants. Our focus on delivering information technology expertise and computer support to small and midsize companies will give you the opportunity to collaborate closely with key players and contribute appreciably to the growth of dynamic businesses.

Progent is hiring consultants that can show recognized certification related to their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco experts, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security certifications. Naturally, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, simply because a certificate does not ensure excellence is no reason for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then most of these certifications should be no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then customers expect certifications. We can broadcast your skills, but you must provide a baseline of credentials for Progent to market. In case you are strongly opposed to the concept of certifications, we can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Enhance Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Working with a Great Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a more capable professional by improving your information technology skills and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the best professional talent for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications infrastructure, using specialized application tools to enable the maximum level of support, and by streamlining proven business models for finding and retaining customers.

The most important factor that separates Progent from other network support companies is the high quality of our consulting team. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined Progent, we have recruited top expertise across a wide array of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux, virtual servers, or other vital technologies, we engage professionals who can help you to be successful on major jobs by leveraging the collective experience of Progent's team of experts.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's team, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful tools to perform the work properly. We will exploit technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure allows effortless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent team members — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue with regular drives to a physical office, and any driving you do for in-person client jobs is based on your own time table, not ours. The best part is that most of Progent's consulting services can be done off-site, offering 100% efficiency for income-producing time. In practice, some of our staff do remote consulting only.

Progent's operations are set up for reacting rapidly and efficiently to customer needs through knowledge sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Even though Progent's engineers operate with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is unified, client issues and solutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and archived for easy reference, up-to-date consultant availability is broadcast to facilitate group tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and customer approval is continually evaluated. We reinforce the sense of connection via monthly workgroup meetings and regular company-wide events.

Most of our consultants are located throughout Northern California, but Progent is attracting a rapidly growing team of consulting professionals from across America. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional boundaries that limit the efficiency of traditional business structures. We complete the package by offering a comprehensive employee care plan to promote the health and financial welfare of our team members and their families.

Just as we have awesome consultants, our sales and administration teams match the high standards that characterizes Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s growth are helping us to identify and land the scores of new clients we are currently engaging every month. We recently celebrated 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 a strong sales operation.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of technical challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Customers choose a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, advanced deployments, puzzling or entrenched issues, and difficult upgrades are the basis for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for computer engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every morning excited about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some great folks, both by building strong customer relationships and by working in conjunction 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 heart and soul. If you don’t offer strong communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied assortment of people, then we are in all likelihood not a good match.

If this sounds good to you, we invite you to talk to Progent about our vision of the future of information technology consulting.
