Details Concerning Work at Progent

Fulltime Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire full-time, results-driven Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco accredited system engineers with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security professionals who have CISM or equivalent security credentials; and advanced network design experts with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, workplace recovery, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks employees who can join Progent's staff of help desk service specialists and remote support experts. Also, We are seeking experienced managers who can perform productively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of skilled and dedicated professionals, delivering world-class client services, and offering a competitive value-focused fee model, We have managed to increase our customer base rapidly while delivering professional services to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared knowledge database, and a group approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a talented staff and a loyal customer base.

If you are a network consultant with troubleshooting experience, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's customers will enhance your skills via cooperation with Progent's staff of highly team-oriented, talented engineers. Progent's focus on delivering network consulting and technical help to small and midsize companies will give you the chance to work intimately with key players and contribute appreciably to the growth of dynamic businesses.

We are hiring consultants that have recognized certification related to their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco professionals, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should show you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is aware of "paper experts". Still, simply because a credential can not ensure expertise is no justification for not earning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of these tests should present no challenge. The bottom line is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then customers deserve to see credentials. Progent can broadcast your skills, but you should provide basic certifications for Progent to market. In case you stand strongly against the idea of credentials, Progent can understand and honor your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

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

Progent's business climate will make you a better consulting professional by improving your technical skills and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the best consulting experts for you to work with, providing an advanced system architecture, running specialized application utilities to deliver the highest quality of service, and by streamlining proven business models for attracting and maintaining customers.

The main factor that distinguishes us from ordinary consulting firms is the high caliber of our consulting team. Among the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited top talent across a broad array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Macintosh, Linux, server virtualization, or other vital areas, we engage professionals who can enable you to be effective on major projects by combining the collective skills of our team of experts.

To promote the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful technology to do the job efficiently. Progent will leverage information technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables effortless communications, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of regular drives to a physical office, and any driving you do for in-person customer work is determined by your schedule, not Progent's. The best part is that much of Progent's support work can be performed remotely, offering maximum productivity for billable time. In practice, some Progent staff do off-site support exclusively.

Our operations are geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to customer requirements through information sharing and collaborative problem solving. Even though our consultants operate with a high level of independence, dispatching is unified, customer problems and resolutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for convenient retrieval, current engineer availability is published to facilitate group tasks and enable problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is always monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation via periodic team conferences and regular company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's consultants are situated across Northern California, but we are attracting a quickly growing team of network professionals from across America. Progent's virtual office environment does away with regional boundaries that limit the productivity of conventional company structures. We enhance the deal by offering a full employee care plan to promote the health and financial security of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's sales and operations groups live up to the excellence that defines Progent. These high-performance contributors to our success are helping us to identify and land the 50-60 new customers we are now engaging every month. We recently marked the providing of support to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective marketing organization.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a key for success with us. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a steady series of technical challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Customers choose a consultant to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or chronic problems, and difficult migrations are the foundation for our services daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will meet some great people, both by building close customer contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization through and through. If you don’t offer excellent people skills or like working with a diverse group of people, then Progent is probably a poor match.

If this sounds right for you, we invite you to contact us about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
