Additional Facts Concerning Opportunities at Progent

Career Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, results-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco accredited network consultants who have CCIE certification; security professionals who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security certification; and high-end system design consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, fault tolerance, disaster recovery, information preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for employees to work on our staff of desktop support technicians and off-site troubleshooting professionals. Also, We are seeking talented administrators who can perform productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of skilled and motivated consultants, delivering world-class customer services, and following a competitive results-focused fee structure, We have been able to increase our client base dramatically while delivering consulting services to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared knowledge database, and a team approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a talented staff and a loyal client list.

If you are an information technology professional with troubleshooting experience, teaming with Progent or helping our clients will enhance your skills through interaction with our group of mutually team-oriented, talented engineers. Progent's commitment to providing information technology expertise and technical support to small organizations will offer you the chance to work intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the success of exciting businesses.

We are looking for consultants who can show verifiable certification related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your Microsoft MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco professionals, have your CCIE or CCNP credential. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security certifications. Naturally, we are aware of "paper experts". Notwithstanding, the fact that a certificate does not ensure excellence is no excuse for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then most of these tests should be no challenge. The point is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then clients expect credentials. Progent will broadcast your talents, but you should provide a baseline of credentials for Progent to market. If you happen to be strongly opposed to the concept of credentials, we can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

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

Progent's work environment will make you a better professional by enhancing your technical knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the best consulting talent for you to work with, providing an advanced network and communications infrastructure, running custom software tools to deliver the highest level of service, and by streamlining proven business structures for finding and keeping clients.

The main factor that separates Progent from typical consulting companies is the high quality of our consulting team. Out of the scores of consultants who have joined us, we have assembled top expertise covering a wide range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Apple, Linux, VMware, or other vital areas, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be successful on larger jobs by combining the collective skills of Progent's team of professionals.

To ensure the success of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful tools to do the work properly. Progent will leverage information technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables seamless communications, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with other Progent team members — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose revenue because of regular commutes to a conventional office building, and all driving you do for in-person customer jobs is based on your schedule, not Progent's. The best part is that much of our consulting work can be done remotely, representing maximum efficiency for billable time. In fact, some Progent staff do off-site consulting only.

Our operations are set up for reacting rapidly and efficiently to customer requirements via knowledge exchange and collaborative problem solving. Although our consultants operate with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, customer issues and solutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and archived for convenient retrieval, up-to-date consultant schedules are broadcast to facilitate team projects and enable problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is always evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation via periodic workgroup meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of Progent's team is situated throughout Northern California, but we are building a rapidly growing team of consulting professionals from across America. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic obstacles that limit the efficiency of traditional business models. We complete the package by offering a comprehensive employee care program to promote the health and financial security of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consultants, Progent's sales and administration groups live up to the high standards that defines Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s success are enabling us to identify and sign up the scores of new clients we are currently engaging every month. Progent lately marked the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective sales operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with us. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a continual series of technical challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Customers rely on consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, leading-edge deployments, vexing or chronic issues, and difficult migrations are the foundation for our services every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for computer professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every morning excited about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by establishing close client contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization from top to bottom. If you don’t offer strong people skills or like cooperating with a diverse group of people, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good fit.

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