Additional Facts About Jobs at Progent

Fulltime Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Professionals

Progent wants to hire staff-level, solutions-driven Microsoft certified engineers with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco accredited system consultants who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security consultants with CISA or equivalent security certification; and advanced system architecture experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high uptime, workplace recovery, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring professionals to join Progent's team of helpdesk support specialists and off-site troubleshooting experts. In addition, Progent is looking for experienced administrators who can operate effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of skilled and motivated professionals, providing world-class client care, and following a competitive results-focused fee structure, Progent has been able to expand our client list rapidly while delivering professional services to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common information database, and a group strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied client list.

If you are an information technology consultant with troubleshooting experience, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's clients can enhance your knowledge via interaction with Progent's group of mutually supportive, expert engineers. Our commitment to providing information technology expertise and computer support to small and midsize organizations will give you the opportunity to work closely with key players and contribute significantly to the success of dynamic businesses.

Progent is hiring technical professionals that have verifiable credentials related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco experts, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other top security credentials. Of course, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Still, the fact that a certificate does not guarantee excellence is no excuse for not having one. If you know your field, then most of these certifications should be no challenge. The point is that if you are a professional, then clients expect credentials. Progent will promote your talents, but you need to have standard credentials for Progent to work with. In case you stand adamantly opposed to the concept of certifications, we can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Network Consultants

Progent's work environment will make you a better consulting professional by enhancing your information technology knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the top professional talent for you to work with, providing an advanced system architecture, running proprietary software tools to deliver the highest quality of support, and by streamlining proven business models for finding and maintaining customers.

The main factor that separates us from other network support firms is the high caliber of our support professionals. Among the 50 or so consultants who have joined us, we have assembled top expertise across a wide range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Mac, Linux, server virtualization, or other key application, we engage experts who can help you to be successful on major jobs by combining the aggregate experience of Progent's team of professionals.

To promote the productivity of Progent's team, we invest heavily in making available the best tools to perform the work efficiently. We will exploit technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables effortless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit income because of daily commutes to a conventional office building, and all travel you do for on-site customer jobs is based on your time table, not ours. The most attractive part is that much of our support services can be done off-site, offering maximum productivity for billable hours. In practice, some of our staff do remote consulting only.

Our business structure is geared towards reacting rapidly and effectively to customer requirements through knowledge sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Even though Progent's consultants operate with a high level of independence, dispatching is centralized, customer problems and resolutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and archived for convenient reference, current engineer availability is published to streamline group projects and simplify trouble escalation, and customer approval is always monitored. We strengthen the sense of cooperation via periodic team conferences and regular corporate events.

The majority of Progent's team is situated throughout Northern California, but Progent is attracting a quickly expanding team of network professionals throughout the United States. Our virtual office environment does away with geographic obstacles that limit the productivity of traditional business models. We complete the deal by offering a full benefit program to promote the health and economic security of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's sales and administration teams live up to the excellence that characterizes Progent. These top-notch contributors to our success are helping us to target and land the scores of new customers we are now engaging every month. We recently marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective sales organization.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a continual series of technical challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Clients rely on consulting firms to do the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, leading-edge deployments, vexing or entrenched problems, and tricky migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for network professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every day enthusiastic about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will work with some great folks, both by building strong client relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization heart and soul. If you don’t offer excellent communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied assortment of personalities, then we are probably a poor match.

If all this sounds good to you, we invite you to contact us about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.
