More Information Concerning Opportunities at Progent

Staff Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire staff-level, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco certified network consultants with CCIE credentials; security professionals with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security certification; and advanced system design experts with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, service continuity, workplace recovery, information protection, and VMware. Progent also is hiring professionals to join our team of helpdesk service technicians and off-site troubleshooting experts. In addition, Progent is hiring talented administrators able to operate productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of skilled and motivated professionals, providing world-class customer care, and following a competitive results-based pricing structure, Progent has been able to increase our customer list dramatically while delivering consulting services to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a common information database, and a group approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a satisfied customer list.

If you are an information technology professional with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's customers can enhance your knowledge through cooperation with our group of highly supportive, talented consultants. Progent's commitment to providing information technology consulting and technical help to small companies will offer you the chance to collaborate closely with decision makers and contribute significantly to the success of exciting businesses.

Progent is looking for consultants who can show verifiable certification related to their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or CCNP credential. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security credentials. Of course, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” However, simply because a credential does not ensure excellence is no reason for not owning one. If you know your field, then most of those certifications should be no challenge. The point is that if you are an expert, then customers expect certifications. Progent will broadcast your skills, but you should provide standard credentials for Progent to work with. If you stand adamantly against the idea of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Enhance Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining the Top Group of Computer Consultants

Progent's business climate will make you a more capable professional by improving your technical skills and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the top consulting talent for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art system architecture, running proprietary application utilities to deliver the highest level of support, and by streamlining our operational structures for finding and maintaining clients.

The main factor that differentiates us from other consulting firms is the quality of our support professionals. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have joined Progent, we have recruited top expertise covering a wide array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux, server virtualization, or other crucial areas, we engage professionals who can enable you to be effective on larger jobs by leveraging the aggregate skills of Progent's group of professionals.

To promote the success of our consultants, we invest heavily in providing the best technology to do the job efficiently. We will leverage technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows seamless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with other Progent consultants — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit revenue because of regular drives to a physical office building, and all travel you do for in-person customer work is based on your own time table, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that much of our support work can be performed off-site, offering maximum productivity for billable hours. In practice, some of our staff do off-site support exclusively.

Progent's operations are geared towards reacting quickly and effectively to client needs via information sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Even though Progent's consultants operate with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, customer problems and solutions are carefully monitored, documented, and archived for convenient retrieval, current engineer availability is broadcast to facilitate group projects and enable trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually evaluated. We reinforce the sense of connection through periodic team meetings and regular corporate events.

The majority of our team is located across Northern California, however Progent is attracting a rapidly expanding group of consulting experts throughout America. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional obstacles that restrict the efficiency of conventional company models. We complete the package by providing a comprehensive employee care plan to ensure the health and economic security of our team members and their families.

Just as we have awesome consultants, Progent's sales and administration groups match the high standards that characterizes Progent. These high-performance factors behind our success are helping us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are now engaging every month. Progent lately marked 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 a strong marketing organization.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with us. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of network challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Customers rely on consultants to perform the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, advanced implementations, puzzling or entrenched problems, and tricky upgrades are the basis for our services every day. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for network engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every day enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by building strong client contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented company through and through. If you don’t offer excellent communications skills or like working with a varied assortment of personalities, then we are probably not a good match.

If all this seems right for you, we urge you to contact Progent about our view of the future of network consulting.
