Details Concerning Jobs at Progent

Fulltime Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to find full-time, results-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco certified system consultants who have Cisco CCIE credentials; security professionals with CISSP or comparable security credentials; and advanced system architecture experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, service continuity, business continuity, data protection, and VMware. Progent also is looking for professionals to work on Progent's team of helpdesk support specialists and off-site troubleshooting experts. In addition, Progent is hiring talented administrators who can operate productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of talented and dedicated consultants, delivering world-class customer services, and following a strong value-based pricing structure, We have been able to increase our customer base dramatically while providing consulting services to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared knowledge base, and a team strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a satisfied client list.

If you are an information technology professional with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or helping our customers will expand your skills through interaction with our staff of highly supportive, talented consultants. Progent's focus on delivering information technology expertise and computer help to small and midsize companies will give you the chance to work closely with key players and add significantly to the success of dynamic companies.

We are hiring technical professionals that can show recognized certification related to their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. In the case of Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or one of the other top security credentials. Naturally, Progent is aware of "paper experts". Still, the fact that a certificate can not ensure excellence is no justification for not having one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of these certifications should pose no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you are an expert, then clients deserve to see credentials. Progent can promote your talents, but you should provide a baseline of credentials for Progent to work with. If you stand adamantly opposed to the concept of credentials, we can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Enhance Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Working with a Great Team of Network Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will allow you to become a better consulting professional by improving your technical knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the top professional experts for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications infrastructure, running custom software tools to enable the highest level of support, and by streamlining proven business models for finding and maintaining clients.

The most important factor that separates us from other consulting firms is the high caliber of our support professionals. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited top expertise across a broad range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other crucial areas, we engage professionals who can help you to be effective on major projects by leveraging the aggregate skills of our team of experts.

To promote the success of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in providing the best tools to do the job efficiently. We will leverage information technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office environment allows seamless communications, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent team members — all from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit income with daily commutes to a physical office building, and all driving you do for on-site customer jobs is determined by your schedule, not Progent's. The best benefit is that most of Progent's support work can be performed off-site, representing maximum efficiency for billable time. In practice, some of our staff do off-site support exclusively.

Progent's business structure is set up for reacting rapidly and efficiently to customer needs via knowledge sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Although our engineers work with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, customer problems and resolutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and archived for convenient reference, current consultant availability is published to streamline group projects and enable problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually monitored. We reinforce the feeling of connection via monthly workgroup meetings and quarterly corporate events.

Most of our team is situated across Northern California, however we are building a quickly expanding team of consulting professionals throughout the U.S. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic boundaries that limit the productivity of conventional business models. We complete the package by providing a full employee care plan to ensure the health and economic welfare of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, our marketing and operations groups match the high standards that characterizes Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s growth are enabling us to identify and sign up the scores of new clients we are currently acquiring each month. We recently marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong marketing operation.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a key for growth with us. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of network challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Customers rely on consulting firms to do the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, advanced deployments, puzzling or entrenched problems, and tricky migrations are the basis for what we do every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for network professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning excited about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by establishing close customer contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused organization through and through. If you don’t have strong people skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse group of people, then we are probably not a good match.

If all this sounds right for you, we urge you to talk to Progent about our view of the future of information technology consulting.
