Details Concerning Work at Progent

Career Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to find fulltime, results-driven Microsoft certified consultants with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco certified network engineers who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security consultants who have CISSP or equivalent security credentials; and advanced system architecture consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high availability, workplace recovery, information preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks professionals to work on our staff of help desk support specialists and remote support professionals. Also, Progent is looking for experienced managers able to perform effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of talented and dedicated professionals, delivering world-class customer care, and offering a competitive results-based pricing structure, We have been able to increase our customer list dramatically while providing professional services to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared knowledge database, and a group approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a talented staff and a satisfied customer list.

If you are a network professional with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or helping Progent's customers will enhance your skills through cooperation with Progent's staff of mutually team-oriented, expert engineers. Progent's commitment to delivering information technology expertise and technical support to small and midsize organizations will offer you the chance to work intimately with decision makers and contribute significantly to the success of dynamic companies.

We are looking for technical professionals who can show recognized credentials in their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco consultants, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other top security certifications. Naturally, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Nevertheless, simply because a certificate does not guarantee excellence is no excuse for not earning one. If you know your field, then the majority of those certifications should pose no challenge. The bottom line is that if you are an expert, then customers expect certifications. We can promote your talents, but you should have a baseline of credentials for us to market. In case you are strongly against the idea of credentials, we can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

Enhance Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Network Engineers

Progent's business climate will make you a more capable professional by improving your technical skills and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the best professional talent for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, using custom software tools to enable the maximum quality of service, and by streamlining proven business structures for attracting and retaining clients.

The most important factor that separates us from other network support companies is the high caliber of our service staff. Among the 50 or so consultants who have joined us, we have assembled the best talent across a wide range of technologies. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Mac, Linux, virtual servers, or other crucial technologies, we engage experts who can help you to be successful on larger projects by leveraging the collective skills of our group of experts.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's team, we invest heavily in providing the best technology to perform the work properly. We will exploit information technology to an extraordinary degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables effortless communications, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with other Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose income with daily commutes to a conventional office building, and any driving you do for in-person client jobs is determined by your time table, not ours. The best part is that most of our support work can be performed remotely, representing 100% efficiency for income-producing hours. In fact, some Progent team members do off-site consulting only.

Our operations are geared towards responding quickly and efficiently to client needs via information exchange and cooperative problem solving. Even though our engineers operate with a high level of freedom, dispatching is unified, customer problems and resolutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and archived for convenient retrieval, current engineer availability is broadcast to streamline group tasks and enable problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is always monitored. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation via monthly team conferences and quarterly corporate events.

The majority of our team is situated across California, however Progent is attracting a quickly expanding team of consulting professionals throughout America. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic boundaries that restrict the productivity of conventional company structures. We complete the package by providing a comprehensive employee care plan to promote the physical health and economic welfare of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and administration teams match the high standards that is Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s growth are enabling us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are currently engaging each month. Progent recently celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective sales operation.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for success with us. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of network challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Customers rely on consultants to perform the toughest jobs. Creative projects, advanced implementations, vexing or chronic issues, and difficult migrations are the basis for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for network professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every morning excited about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some great folks, both by building close customer relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization through and through. If you do not have strong people skills or enjoy working with a diverse group of people, then we are probably not a good match.

If this seems good to you, we urge you to talk to Progent about our view of the new paradigm of network consulting.
