Additional Facts About Work at Progent

Career Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Service Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent wants to hire staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco certified network engineers with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security professionals with CISSP or comparable security certification; and high-end system architecture experts with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high uptime, disaster recovery, data preservation, and VMware. Progent also is looking for employees who can join Progent's staff of help desk service specialists and remote troubleshooting professionals. In addition, We are hiring talented administrators who can operate productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of skilled and motivated consultants, providing attentive customer services, and following a strong value-based fee structure, Progent has managed to increase our customer base dramatically while delivering consulting support to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared knowledge base, and a group strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a talented staff and a satisfied customer list.

If you are an information technology consultant with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or working for our clients will expand your knowledge through interaction with our staff of mutually team-oriented, talented consultants. Progent's commitment to providing information technology consulting and technical support to small and midsize companies will offer you the chance to work intimately with decision makers and add significantly to the growth of exciting companies.

We are looking for consultants who can show verifiable credentials in their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your Microsoft MCSE certificate. For Cisco professionals, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other leading security credentials. Naturally, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Still, simply because a certificate can not guarantee expertise is no excuse for not having one. If you have mastered your field, then most of these certifications should present no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients deserve to see credentials. Progent will market your talents, but you must provide standard certifications for us to market. If you are strongly opposed to the concept of certifications, we can understand and respect your position, but you are probably not a good candidate.

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Working with the Top Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a better consultant by improving your information technology skills and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the best consulting talent for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications infrastructure, running proprietary software utilities to enable the maximum level of support, and by optimizing our operational structures for finding and retaining clients.

The main factor that separates Progent from other network support companies is the high caliber of our consulting team. Among the scores of consultants who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited the best expertise across a broad range of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other key areas, we deploy professionals who can help you to be successful on larger projects by leveraging the aggregate skills of Progent's group of experts.

To promote the success of Progent's consultants, we invest significantly in providing the best tools to do the work properly. We will exploit information technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure allows effortless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with other Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit income because of regular commutes to a conventional office, and any driving you do for on-site client work is based on your own time table, not ours. The best part is that much of Progent's support services can be done remotely, offering maximum efficiency for income-producing hours. In practice, some Progent team members do remote support only.

Our business structure is set up for responding rapidly and effectively to customer requirements via information exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Even though our engineers work with a great deal of independence, dispatching is unified, client problems and solutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and organized for easy retrieval, current consultant schedules are published to streamline team tasks and enable problem escalation, and client approval is always evaluated. We strengthen the sense of cooperation through periodic workgroup meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of Progent's team is located throughout California, but Progent is attracting a rapidly expanding group of consulting experts from across America. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional obstacles that limit the efficiency of conventional business models. We enhance the deal by offering a comprehensive employee care program to ensure the health and financial security of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, Progent's sales and operations groups live up to the excellence that characterizes Progent. These top-notch factors behind our growth are helping us to identify and land the 50-60 new clients we are now acquiring every month. We recently marked the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also a strong marketing operation.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a continual series of technical challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Customers choose a consultant to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, advanced deployments, puzzling or entrenched problems, and difficult migrations are the foundation for what we do daily. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for computer engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will meet some great people, both by building strong customer relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization through and through. If you do not offer excellent communications skills or enjoy working with a diverse assortment of personalities, then we are in all likelihood a poor fit.

If all this sounds right for you, we urge you to contact us about our vision of the future of information technology consulting.
