Additional Facts About Opportunities at Progent

Staff Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent wants to find staff-level, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP certification; Cisco certified system engineers who have CCIE certification; security consultants with CISM or comparable security certification; and high-end network architecture consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, fault tolerance, workplace recovery, information preservation, and VMware. Progent also is looking for employees to join our team of desktop service specialists and off-site support professionals. Also, We are looking for talented administrators able to perform effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of skilled and dedicated professionals, delivering attentive client care, and offering a strong value-focused pricing model, Progent has managed to expand our customer base dramatically while providing consulting support to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared information database, and a team strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to retain a skilled staff and a satisfied customer base.

If you are an information technology consultant with technical support experience, joining Progent or working for Progent's customers can enhance your knowledge via cooperation with our group of highly team-oriented, expert engineers. Progent's commitment to delivering information technology consulting and computer support to small and midsize organizations will give you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the success of exciting companies.

We are hiring technical professionals that can show recognized credentials related to their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. For Cisco experts, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should have you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security certifications. Naturally, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, the fact that a credential can not guarantee expertise is no justification for not earning one. If you know your field, then the majority of those certifications should be no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers deserve to see credentials. Progent will market your skills, but you need to provide standard credentials for Progent to market. If you are adamantly opposed to the concept of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are probably not a good candidate.

The best part is that much of our support work can be performed off-site, representing 100% productivity for income-producing time. In practice, some Progent team members do remote support exclusively.

Progent's business structure is geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to customer requirements via information sharing and collaborative problem solving. Even though our consultants operate with a high level of independence, dispatching is centralized, client issues and solutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and organized for convenient reference, up-to-date consultant availability is broadcast to streamline group projects and enable problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually monitored.

Being confronted by a steady series of technical challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Customers rely on consultants to do the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or chronic problems, and tricky migrations are the basis for what we do every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for computer professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every morning excited about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by establishing strong client relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented organization through and through.
