Additional Facts About Opportunities at Progent

Career Work for Network Consultants, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco accredited network engineers who have CCIE credentials; security professionals who have CISA or comparable security certification; and advanced network design experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, disaster recovery, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for professionals who can work on Progent's staff of helpdesk support technicians and remote troubleshooting experts. Also, We are looking for experienced managers able to perform effectively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of talented and dedicated professionals, delivering attentive customer care, and following a competitive value-based fee model, Progent has managed to expand our customer base rapidly while delivering consulting services to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and across the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a shared information base, and a group strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a satisfied customer base.

For an information technology professional with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or helping our clients will enhance your skills through cooperation with our staff of mutually supportive, talented engineers. Our focus on delivering information technology consulting and technical help to small and midsize companies will give you the opportunity to work closely with key players and add significantly to the growth of exciting businesses.

Progent is looking for technical professionals who can show verifiable credentials related to their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco consultants, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP credential. For network security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security certifications. Of course, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, the fact that a credential does not ensure expertise is no reason for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of these tests should present no challenge. The bottom line is that if you are an expert, then customers expect credentials. We will promote your talents, but you need to provide a baseline of credentials for us to market. If you are adamantly opposed to the concept of credentials, we can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

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

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a better consulting professional by enhancing your technical skills and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the best consulting talent for you to operate with, offering an advanced system architecture, using custom software tools to deliver the maximum quality of support, and by optimizing proven operational structures for attracting and retaining customers.

The main factor that separates us from typical network support firms is the excellence of our consultants. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have assembled the best talent covering a broad array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Apple, Linux, server virtualization, or other key technologies, we engage experts who can enable you to be effective on major jobs by leveraging the aggregate skills of Progent's group of experts.

To promote the productivity of our team, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful tools to perform the work efficiently. Progent will exploit information technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables effortless communications, collaboration, and information exchange with fellow Progent consultants — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of daily commutes to a conventional office, and any driving you do for on-site client work is determined by your own schedule, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that most of our support services can be done remotely, offering maximum efficiency for income-producing time. In fact, some of our staff do remote support only.

Progent's operations are geared towards responding quickly and effectively to customer requirements via knowledge exchange and cooperative problem solving. Even though Progent's engineers operate with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, client problems and resolutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and organized for easy retrieval, up-to-date engineer availability is broadcast to facilitate team projects and simplify problem escalation, and client satisfaction is always evaluated. We strengthen the sense of cooperation via periodic team meetings and regular corporate events.

Most of Progent's consultants are located throughout California, however Progent is building a quickly growing team of network experts from across the U.S. Our virtual office environment does away with geographic boundaries that restrict the productivity of conventional company models. We enhance the package by providing a full employee care plan to ensure the physical health and financial security of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, our marketing and operations groups live up to the high standards that is Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s growth are enabling us to target and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are currently acquiring every month. We recently celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective marketing operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with us. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a continual series of network challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Customers choose consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, leading-edge deployments, vexing or entrenched issues, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for our services every day. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for computer engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every day enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by building close customer relationships and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their success. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented organization through and through. If you don’t have excellent people skills or like working with a diverse assortment of personalities, then we are in all likelihood a poor match.

If this sounds good to you, we urge you to talk to us about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.
