Additional Facts Concerning Jobs with Us

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

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, results-driven Microsoft certified consultants with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco certified network consultants who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security consultants with CISM or comparable security certification; and advanced network architecture experts with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, service continuity, disaster recovery, data protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for employees who can work on Progent's staff of help desk support technicians and remote support professionals. In addition, We are hiring talented administrators able to perform productively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of talented and dedicated consultants, delivering world-class customer care, and offering a strong value-focused fee model, Progent has been able to increase our customer list dramatically while delivering professional services to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common information base, and a group approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a loyal client list.

For an information technology professional with technical support experience, joining Progent or working for our clients will enhance your knowledge via interaction with Progent's staff of highly team-oriented, talented engineers. Progent's focus on providing network consulting and computer help to small and midsize organizations will give you the opportunity to work intimately with key players and contribute significantly to the growth of exciting companies.

We are looking for consultants that have recognized certification related to their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco consultants, show us your CCIE or CCNP credential. For security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security certifications. Of course, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Still, the fact that a certificate does not guarantee excellence is no justification for not having one. If you have mastered your field, then most of those certifications should be no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you are a professional, then clients deserve to see credentials. Progent will market your skills, but you must have a baseline of credentials for Progent to market. If you stand adamantly against the idea of certifications, Progent can understand and honor your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

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

Progent's company culture will allow you to become a better consulting professional by improving your technical skills and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the top consulting experts for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, using custom application utilities to enable the highest level of service, and by optimizing our business structures for attracting and keeping customers.

The decisive factor that differentiates Progent from most consulting firms is the excellence of our service staff. Among the scores of consultants who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited top talent across a broad range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux, VMware, or other crucial application, we deploy professionals who can help you to be effective on larger jobs by leveraging the aggregate experience of our group of experts.

To ensure the success of Progent's consultants, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful technology to perform the work efficiently. Progent will exploit information technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables effortless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit income because of daily commutes to a physical office, and all driving you do for in-person client jobs is based on your schedule, not ours. The best part is that most of our support services can be done remotely, representing maximum productivity for billable hours. In practice, some Progent staff do off-site support exclusively.

Our operations are geared towards responding quickly and efficiently to customer needs through knowledge exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Although Progent's consultants operate with a great deal of independence, dispatching is unified, customer issues and resolutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and organized for easy reference, up-to-date consultant schedules are broadcast to streamline group projects and enable trouble escalation, and customer approval is always evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation via periodic team conferences and quarterly corporate events.

Most of our team is situated across Northern California, however we are attracting a rapidly expanding group of network professionals from across the U.S. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic boundaries that restrict the efficiency of traditional company structures. We complete the deal by offering a comprehensive employee care program to promote the physical health and economic security of our team members and their families.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's sales and administration teams live up to the high standards that defines Progent. These high-performance contributors to our success are helping us to target and land the 50-60 new clients we are now acquiring every month. We recently marked the providing of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective marketing operation.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a key for success with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of technical challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Customers choose consulting firms to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, advanced deployments, puzzling or entrenched issues, and difficult upgrades are the basis for our services every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will work with some great people, both by building strong customer relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization through and through. If you don’t offer strong communications skills or enjoy working with a diverse group of personalities, then Progent is probably not a good match.

If this sounds good to you, we invite you to talk to Progent about our vision of the future of information technology consulting.
