Details About Work at Progent

Staff Work for Network Engineers, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent wants to hire fulltime, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco certified system consultants who have Cisco CCIE certification; security professionals who have CISM or equivalent security certification; and high-end system design consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, service continuity, disaster recovery, data preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring employees to work on Progent's staff of desktop support technicians and remote support experts. Also, We are looking for experienced administrators who can operate productively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of talented and dedicated consultants, providing attentive client services, and following a strong results-focused fee structure, We have managed to increase our customer base rapidly while delivering professional support to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common knowledge database, and a group approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a talented staff and a loyal client base.

If you are a network professional with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or helping our clients will expand your skills via interaction with Progent's staff of highly team-oriented, talented engineers. Our commitment to delivering information technology expertise and technical support to small companies will offer you the chance to work closely with decision makers and contribute significantly to the growth of dynamic businesses.

Progent is hiring consultants who have verifiable credentials in their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your MCSE certificate. For Cisco experts, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security credentials. Naturally, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” However, the fact that a credential does not guarantee excellence is no excuse for not earning one. If you know your field, then most of those certifications should be no challenge. The point is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients expect credentials. We will market your skills, but you must have basic certifications for us to market. In case you are adamantly against the concept of credentials, we can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are probably not a good fit.

Improve Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Team of Computer Engineers

Progent's work environment will make you a more capable consulting professional by enhancing your information technology skills and boosting the satisfaction of your customers. Progent delivers on this commitment by recruiting the best professional talent for you to work with, providing an advanced network and communications architecture, running custom software tools to deliver the maximum level of support, and by optimizing proven operational models for finding and retaining clients.

The main factor that distinguishes Progent from other consulting companies is the high caliber of our consulting team. Among the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with us, we have recruited the best expertise covering a wide array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Mac, Linux, server virtualization, or other vital areas, we engage experts who can help you to be successful on major projects by combining the aggregate experience of Progent's group of professionals.

To ensure the success of our team, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful tools to do the work properly. Progent will leverage information technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows effortless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent team members — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit income with regular commutes to a physical office building, and all travel you do for on-site client jobs is based on your own time table, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that much of our consulting services can be performed remotely, representing maximum productivity for billable hours. In fact, some of our team members do remote consulting exclusively.

Our operations are geared towards responding rapidly and effectively to customer requirements through knowledge sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Although Progent's engineers operate with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is centralized, client problems and solutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and organized for convenient reference, current consultant schedules are published to streamline group projects and enable trouble escalation, and customer approval is continually evaluated. We strengthen the sense of cooperation via monthly workgroup conferences and quarterly corporate events.

Most of Progent's consultants are situated throughout California, but we are attracting a rapidly growing team of network experts from across America. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional boundaries that limit the productivity of traditional business models. We complete the package by offering a full employee care plan to ensure the physical health and financial welfare of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, our marketing and operations groups match the excellence that characterizes Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s success are enabling us to identify and land the 50-60 new customers we are currently acquiring each month. Progent recently celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing operation.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with us. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a steady series of network challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Customers choose consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Creative projects, advanced implementations, vexing or entrenched issues, and tricky migrations are the basis for our services every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for computer professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will work with some great people, both by establishing strong customer contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused organization heart and soul. If you do not offer strong people skills or like working with a diverse group of people, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor match.

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