Additional Facts Concerning Work at Progent

Staff Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent wants to find full-time, results-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco accredited network engineers who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security professionals with CISSP or comparable security credentials; and high-end network architecture experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high uptime, business continuity, information protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring employees who can work on our staff of help desk support specialists and off-site troubleshooting professionals. Also, Progent is seeking talented administrators who can operate productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and dedicated consultants, delivering world-class customer services, and offering a competitive value-focused fee model, We have been able to increase our customer list dramatically while delivering professional services to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared information database, and a group approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a loyal customer list.

For an information technology professional with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or working for our customers will expand your skills via cooperation with Progent's staff of highly supportive, talented engineers. Our commitment to providing network expertise and technical support to small organizations will give you the chance to collaborate intimately with key players and contribute significantly to the growth of exciting businesses.

Progent is hiring technical professionals who have recognized certification related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco professionals, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security certifications. Naturally, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, simply because a certificate can not guarantee expertise is no justification for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then most of these tests should be no challenge. The bottom line is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients expect credentials. Progent can market your talents, but you must have standard credentials for Progent to work with. In case you are strongly against the concept of certifications, we can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are likely not a good fit.

Working with a Great Group of Network Engineers

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a more capable consulting professional by improving your technical skills and increasing the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this commitment by recruiting the best consulting experts for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, using custom application utilities to deliver the highest level of support, and by optimizing proven operational models for attracting and keeping clients.

The decisive factor that differentiates Progent from most consulting companies is the high quality of our support professionals. Among the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled the best talent across a broad range of technologies. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux, VMware, or other key areas, we deploy experts who can help you to be successful on larger projects by leveraging the collective experience of our team of professionals.

To promote the success of Progent's team, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful technology to do the job properly. Progent will exploit technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables seamless communications, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with other Progent team members — all from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit revenue because of daily commutes to a physical office building, and any travel you do for in-person customer work is based on your own time table, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that most of Progent's support services can be done off-site, representing maximum efficiency for income-producing hours. In practice, some Progent team members do remote support exclusively.

Our business structure is set up for responding quickly and effectively to customer needs through information exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Although Progent's engineers operate with a high level of independence, dispatching is centralized, customer issues and solutions are carefully tracked, documented, and organized for easy retrieval, current consultant availability is published to streamline team tasks and simplify problem escalation, and customer approval is always evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of connection through monthly workgroup conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of our consultants are located across California, however we are attracting a rapidly growing team of network professionals throughout the U.S. Our virtual office environment eliminates regional obstacles that limit the efficiency of conventional company models. We enhance the deal by offering a comprehensive benefit program to ensure the physical health and financial welfare of our team members and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, our sales and operations teams live up to the excellence that defines Progent. These high-performance contributors to our growth are enabling us to target and land the scores of new customers we are now engaging every month. Progent recently celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective sales organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for success with us. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of network challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Clients choose a consultant to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or entrenched problems, and tricky migrations are the foundation for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for computer engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning excited about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will work with some great folks, both by establishing close client relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization heart and soul. If you do not offer excellent communications skills or like cooperating with a diverse assortment of people, then we are probably a poor match.

If this seems right for you, we urge you to talk to us about our vision of the future of network consulting.
