More Information Concerning Jobs at Progent

Career Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Technicians

Progent wants to find fulltime, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP certification; Cisco certified network consultants with CCIE certification; security consultants who have CISM or equivalent security credentials; and high-end system architecture experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, service continuity, workplace recovery, information protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring professionals to work on our staff of desktop service specialists and off-site troubleshooting experts. In addition, We are hiring talented administrators able to perform effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of skilled and dedicated professionals, delivering attentive customer care, and offering a competitive value-focused fee structure, Progent has been able to expand our client base rapidly while delivering consulting support to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common knowledge database, and a team approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a satisfied client list.

If you are an information technology consultant with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's clients can expand your knowledge via interaction with Progent's group of mutually team-oriented, talented engineers. Progent's commitment to providing network expertise and computer support to small and midsize companies will offer you the chance to work closely with key players and add appreciably to the growth of exciting businesses.

Progent is looking for consultants who have verifiable certification in their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco experts, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security certifications. Of course, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” Still, simply because a credential does not guarantee expertise is no justification for not having one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of these tests should be no challenge. The point is that if you are an expert, then customers deserve to see certifications. Progent will market your skills, but you must provide standard certifications for Progent to work with. If you stand strongly against the concept of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are likely not a good fit.

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Network Engineers

Progent's company culture will allow you to become a better professional by enhancing your information technology knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by recruiting the top consulting talent for you to operate with, providing an advanced system architecture, using custom application tools to enable the highest quality of support, and by streamlining proven business structures for attracting and maintaining clients.

The main factor that distinguishes Progent from other consulting firms is the high quality of our support professionals. Among the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited the best expertise across a broad array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other crucial areas, we engage professionals who can enable you to be successful on larger jobs by combining the aggregate experience of our group of professionals.

To ensure the success of Progent's team, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful tools to perform the job properly. We will leverage information technology to an extraordinary degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows seamless communications, cooperation, and information exchange with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of regular drives to a physical office building, and any travel you do for on-site client jobs is based on your own schedule, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that most of Progent's support services can be done remotely, representing 100% productivity for billable hours. In practice, some of our team members do off-site consulting exclusively.

Progent's operations are geared towards responding quickly and efficiently to customer needs via knowledge sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Although our consultants operate with a high level of freedom, dispatching is unified, client issues and resolutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for convenient reference, current consultant schedules are broadcast to facilitate group projects and enable trouble escalation, and client approval is continually monitored. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation via periodic workgroup meetings and quarterly corporate events.

The majority of Progent's consultants are situated throughout Northern California, however Progent is building a quickly expanding group of consulting professionals from across the United States. Our virtual office environment eliminates geographic obstacles that limit the efficiency of traditional company structures. We enhance the deal by providing a comprehensive employee care plan to ensure the health and financial welfare of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consultants, Progent's marketing and administration groups live up to the high standards that is Progent. These top-notch factors behind our growth are enabling us to identify and land the scores of new customers we are now acquiring each month. We recently celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a steady series of technical challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Customers choose a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, advanced deployments, puzzling or entrenched problems, and tricky upgrades are the basis for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for computer professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every day enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will meet some great folks, both by establishing close customer relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused organization from top to bottom. If you do not have excellent communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse group of people, then we are in all likelihood not a good fit.

If all this sounds good to you, we urge you to contact Progent about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
