Additional Facts About Jobs at Progent

Fulltime Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent wants to hire full-time, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco certified system consultants who have Cisco certification; security consultants who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security certification; and high-end system design consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, fault tolerance, business continuity, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for employees to join Progent's staff of helpdesk support specialists and remote troubleshooting experts. Also, Progent is looking for talented administrators who can operate productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of talented and dedicated professionals, delivering world-class customer care, and following a strong value-based pricing structure, We have managed to increase our customer base dramatically while delivering professional support to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a common knowledge database, and a team approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a talented staff and a loyal customer base.

For a network professional with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or helping our customers will enhance your skills via interaction with Progent's staff of highly team-oriented, expert engineers. Our commitment to delivering network expertise and computer support to small and midsize organizations will offer you the chance to work intimately with key players and add significantly to the growth of exciting businesses.

Progent is looking for consultants that have recognized certification related to their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your MCSE credential. For Cisco professionals, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP credential. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other leading security certifications. Of course, we are familiar with "paper experts". Still, simply because a credential can not guarantee excellence is no justification for not having one. If you know your field, then most of those certifications should present no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you are an expert, then customers expect certifications. We can market your talents, but you must have standard certifications for us to work with. In case you are strongly opposed to the concept of credentials, Progent can understand and respect your position, but you are likely not a good fit.

Progent's business structure is set up for reacting rapidly and efficiently to customer requirements via knowledge sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Although our consultants work with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is centralized, customer problems and solutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for easy retrieval, current engineer availability is broadcast to facilitate team tasks and simplify problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually monitored.

You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by building close customer contacts and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their success.
