Details Concerning Opportunities at Progent

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

Progent is seeking to find staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco certified system engineers who have Cisco credentials; security professionals who have CISM or equivalent security certification; and advanced system design consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, service continuity, workplace recovery, information protection, and VMware. Progent also is looking for professionals who can join Progent's staff of desktop support specialists and off-site support professionals. In addition, Progent is seeking experienced administrators able to operate productively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of talented and dedicated professionals, delivering world-class client care, and following a strong results-focused pricing structure, Progent has been able to increase our customer list dramatically while providing professional support to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared knowledge base, and a group approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a skilled staff and a loyal client list.

If you are a network consultant with technical support expertise, joining Progent or working for Progent's customers will expand your skills via interaction with Progent's staff of mutually supportive, talented consultants. Progent's commitment to providing information technology expertise and computer support to small and midsize organizations will give you the opportunity to work closely with key players and contribute appreciably to the success of dynamic businesses.

We are hiring technical professionals who can show verifiable certification related to their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or CCNP credential. For security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security certifications. Naturally, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Still, the fact that a certificate does not guarantee expertise is no reason for not owning one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of these tests should pose no challenge. The point is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients deserve to see certifications. We can promote your skills, but you must have standard certifications for Progent to market. In case you happen to be adamantly opposed to the concept of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

Enhance Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining the Top Group of Computer Engineers

Progent's company culture will allow you to become a better consultant by enhancing your technical knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the top consulting talent for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, using specialized software tools to enable the highest level of support, and by streamlining proven business models for attracting and retaining clients.

The decisive factor that differentiates us from other consulting firms is the quality of our support professionals. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have joined Progent, we have recruited top expertise across a broad range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Mac, Linux, virtual servers, or other vital technologies, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be successful on major projects by combining the aggregate experience of Progent's group of professionals.

To ensure the success of Progent's team, we invest heavily in providing the best technology to perform the job properly. Progent will exploit information technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office environment enables seamless communications, collaboration, and information sharing with fellow Progent consultants — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of regular commutes to a physical office, and all driving you do for in-person customer work is determined by your time table, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that most of Progent's support work can be done off-site, representing maximum efficiency for billable time. In practice, some Progent team members do remote support exclusively.

Progent's business structure is set up for responding rapidly and effectively to client needs via information sharing and cooperative problem solving. Even though Progent's engineers work with a high level of independence, dispatching is centralized, customer issues and solutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and organized for convenient retrieval, up-to-date consultant schedules are published to streamline group tasks and enable problem escalation, and client satisfaction is continually monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation via periodic team meetings and regular company-wide events.

Most of our team is situated throughout Northern California, but we are attracting a rapidly expanding team of consulting experts throughout the U.S. Progent's virtual office environment eliminates geographic boundaries that limit the efficiency of traditional business models. We enhance the package by offering a full employee care program to ensure the health and economic welfare of our team members and their families.

Just as we have awesome consultants, our sales and operations teams live up to the high standards that is Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s success are helping us to target and land the 50-60 new customers we are now engaging every month. We lately celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing operation.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a key for success with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of network challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Clients choose a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or entrenched problems, and difficult upgrades are the basis for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for network professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every morning excited about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by establishing strong client contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization through and through. If you don’t offer strong communications skills or enjoy working with a varied group of personalities, then we are probably not a good fit.

If this sounds good to you, we urge you to talk to us about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
