Additional Facts Concerning Jobs at Progent

Fulltime Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Support Professionals

Progent wants to find full-time, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco accredited network consultants who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security professionals who have CISM or comparable security certification; and advanced system architecture experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high uptime, disaster recovery, information protection, and VMware. Progent also seeks employees who can work on Progent's staff of helpdesk service technicians and off-site troubleshooting experts. In addition, We are seeking experienced managers who can operate effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of talented and motivated professionals, delivering attentive customer care, and offering a competitive results-focused pricing structure, We have managed to increase our customer base rapidly while delivering consulting services to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared information database, and a team strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a talented staff and a satisfied customer base.

For an information technology professional with troubleshooting experience, teaming with Progent or helping our clients will enhance your skills through cooperation with our group of highly supportive, expert engineers. Our focus on delivering network consulting and computer help to small and midsize organizations will offer you the chance to collaborate intimately with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the success of dynamic businesses.

Progent is hiring technical professionals who have verifiable certification in their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco professionals, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is aware of "paper experts". Nevertheless, simply because a certificate can not ensure expertise is no reason for not having one. If you know your stuff, then most of these certifications should pose no great difficulty. The point is that if you are a professional, then customers expect credentials. Progent can market your talents, but you should have basic credentials for us to work with. In case you happen to be strongly opposed to the concept of credentials, we can understand and respect your position, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Working with the Top Group of Computer Consultants

Progent's work environment will make you a better professional by enhancing your technical knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the best consulting talent for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, running proprietary application tools to enable the maximum quality of service, and by streamlining our operational models for finding and keeping clients.

The most important factor that differentiates us from other consulting companies is the high quality of our consulting team. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled the best expertise covering a wide array of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other key areas, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be effective on larger jobs by combining the aggregate experience of Progent's team of experts.

To promote the success of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful tools to do the job efficiently. Progent will leverage information technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office environment enables effortless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with other Progent team members — entirely from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or lose revenue with daily commutes to a physical office building, and any travel you do for in-person customer work is determined by your own time table, not Progent's. The best benefit is that most of Progent's consulting services can be done remotely, offering maximum productivity for billable time. In practice, some Progent staff do remote consulting exclusively.

Progent's operations are set up for reacting quickly and efficiently to client requirements via knowledge sharing and cooperative problem solving. Even though Progent's engineers operate with a high level of independence, resource allocation is centralized, client issues and solutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and organized for convenient reference, up-to-date engineer schedules are broadcast to streamline group tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and customer approval is always evaluated. We reinforce the sense of connection through periodic team meetings and quarterly corporate events.

The majority of our consultants are situated across Northern California, however Progent is attracting a rapidly growing team of network experts throughout the United States. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic boundaries that limit the efficiency of conventional business structures. We complete the package by offering a comprehensive benefit plan to promote the physical health and financial welfare of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, Progent's sales and administration groups match the excellence that is Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s growth are enabling us to identify and sign up the scores of new clients we are now acquiring every month. We recently celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing organization.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a key for growth with us. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a steady series of technical challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Clients choose consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, leading-edge deployments, vexing or chronic problems, and tricky migrations are the foundation for our services every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for computer professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every morning excited about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by establishing close client contacts and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their success. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused company through and through. If you don’t offer excellent communications skills or like working with a varied assortment of personalities, then Progent is probably not a good match.

If this seems good to you, we urge you to talk to Progent about our view of the future of information technology consulting.
