Details About Work at Progent

Staff Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire full-time, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited system consultants with Cisco certification; security consultants with CISSP or equivalent security certification; and high-end system design experts with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, fault tolerance, workplace recovery, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for professionals to join our staff of helpdesk service specialists and remote troubleshooting professionals. Also, Progent is hiring experienced managers able to perform productively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of talented and motivated professionals, providing world-class customer care, and offering a competitive results-based fee structure, We have been able to expand our client list dramatically while providing professional services to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared knowledge base, and a group strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a satisfied client base.

If you are an information technology professional with technical support experience, joining Progent or helping Progent's customers will enhance your skills via cooperation with our staff of highly supportive, expert engineers. Progent's focus on providing information technology expertise and computer help to small and midsize organizations will offer you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add significantly to the success of exciting businesses.

Progent is hiring technical professionals who have verifiable credentials related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your MCSE credential. For Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Still, simply because a certificate does not ensure expertise is no excuse for not earning one. If you know your field, then most of those tests should be no great difficulty. The point is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then clients expect credentials. Progent will promote your skills, but you must provide basic credentials for Progent to work with. In case you stand adamantly against the concept of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are likely not a good fit.

Improve Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Working with a Great Team of Network Engineers

Progent's business climate will make you a more capable consultant by improving your technical skills and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the top consulting talent for you to work with, offering an advanced network and communications architecture, running proprietary software utilities to deliver the highest level of service, and by optimizing our business structures for finding and maintaining clients.

The most important factor that separates Progent from other network support firms is the quality of our service staff. Out of the scores of consultants who have joined us, we have assembled the best expertise covering a broad array of technologies. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux, virtual servers, or other crucial areas, we deploy experts who can enable you to be effective on larger jobs by combining the aggregate experience of our group of professionals.

To promote the success of Progent's consultants, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful tools to do the work properly. Progent will leverage technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office environment enables seamless communications, collaboration, and information exchange with fellow Progent team members — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose revenue with regular commutes to a conventional office building, and any travel you do for on-site customer work is determined by your own time table, not ours. The most attractive part is that much of our support services can be performed remotely, representing 100% efficiency for billable hours. In practice, some of our staff do off-site consulting exclusively.

Our business structure is set up for reacting rapidly and efficiently to customer requirements via knowledge exchange and cooperative problem solving. Even though our consultants operate with a high level of independence, dispatching is centralized, client issues and resolutions are carefully monitored, documented, and archived for convenient reference, up-to-date consultant availability is published to facilitate team tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and customer approval is always evaluated. We strengthen the sense of cooperation via periodic team conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of our consultants are located across Northern California, but we are building a rapidly expanding group of consulting professionals from across America. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with regional obstacles that restrict the productivity of conventional company structures. We complete the package by providing a comprehensive employee care plan to promote the physical health and financial security of our team members and their families.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and operations teams live up to the high standards that defines Progent. These top-notch contributors to our success are enabling us to target and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are now acquiring each month. We recently marked the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also a strong sales operation.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with us. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of technical challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Customers choose consulting firms to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, leading-edge deployments, vexing or entrenched problems, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for what we do daily. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for computer engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every day excited about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will work with some great folks, both by establishing strong client contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization heart and soul. If you don’t have strong people skills or like cooperating with a varied group of personalities, then we are probably a poor match.

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