Additional Facts About Jobs at Progent

Staff Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent wants to hire staff-level, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco accredited system engineers with CCIE certification; security professionals who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security certification; and advanced network architecture experts with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high uptime, workplace recovery, information preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for professionals who can work on Progent's team of helpdesk service technicians and remote support experts. In addition, Progent is hiring talented managers able to perform productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of talented and dedicated professionals, providing world-class client care, and offering a strong value-based pricing model, Progent has managed to increase our client list rapidly while providing professional support to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and across the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a common knowledge database, and a team strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a skilled staff and a satisfied client base.

If you are a network professional with technical support expertise, joining Progent or helping Progent's customers will expand your skills via cooperation with Progent's staff of mutually supportive, talented engineers. Progent's commitment to providing information technology consulting and technical help to small companies will give you the chance to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the success of exciting companies.

Progent is looking for technical professionals that can show recognized certification in their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should have you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security credentials. Of course, we are familiar with "paper experts". However, simply because a certificate can not ensure excellence is no excuse for not owning one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of these certifications should pose no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers deserve to see certifications. We can broadcast your skills, but you need to provide a baseline of credentials for us to work with. If you stand strongly against the idea of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Network Consultants

Progent's work environment will make you a better consultant by improving your technical skills and increasing the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the best consulting experts for you to operate with, providing an advanced system infrastructure, running proprietary software utilities to enable the highest level of service, and by optimizing proven business structures for attracting and maintaining clients.

The decisive factor that separates Progent from ordinary network support companies is the high quality of our support professionals. Among the scores of consultants who have joined us, we have assembled the best talent covering a wide range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other vital application, we engage professionals who can help you to be effective on major projects by leveraging the collective skills of our group of professionals.

To promote the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful technology to do the work efficiently. We will exploit information technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office environment allows effortless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent team members — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit income with daily commutes to a physical office building, and all travel you do for in-person client jobs is based on your own time table, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that much of our support services can be done remotely, offering 100% productivity for billable hours. In practice, some Progent team members do off-site support exclusively.

Our business structure is set up for responding quickly and efficiently to client requirements through knowledge exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Even though Progent's engineers operate with a high level of freedom, dispatching is unified, client issues and resolutions are carefully monitored, documented, and organized for easy reference, up-to-date consultant availability is broadcast to streamline group projects and enable trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is always evaluated. We reinforce the sense of connection via monthly workgroup conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of our team is located across Northern California, but Progent is building a rapidly expanding group of consulting experts throughout the U.S. Our virtual office environment does away with regional obstacles that restrict the efficiency of conventional company structures. We complete the package by providing a comprehensive employee care program to ensure the physical health and financial security of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's sales and administration groups live up to the high standards that defines Progent. These top-notch contributors to our success are helping us to target and land the scores of new clients we are now engaging every month. Progent recently celebrated the delivery 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 sales organization.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a key for growth with us. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a steady series of technical challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Customers choose a consultant to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or entrenched issues, and tricky migrations are the basis for what we do every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for network professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every morning excited about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some great people, both by establishing strong client relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented organization through and through. If you don’t have strong communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse group of people, then we are in all likelihood a poor match.

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

Enjoy Lifestyle Improvements and Professional Success with
