Additional Facts Concerning Jobs at Progent

Staff Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to find full-time, results-driven Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco certified system consultants who have Cisco CCIE credentials; security professionals who have CISA or comparable security certification; and advanced network architecture consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, high uptime, business continuity, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks professionals who can work on Progent's staff of desktop support specialists and off-site support professionals. In addition, Progent is hiring talented managers who can perform effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and dedicated professionals, delivering world-class client care, and following a strong results-based fee structure, We have been able to increase our customer list dramatically while providing consulting support to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common information database, and a group strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied client base.

For a network consultant with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or working for our clients will expand your skills via interaction with our group of mutually supportive, talented consultants. Progent's commitment to providing information technology expertise and computer help to small and midsize organizations will give you the chance to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the growth of exciting businesses.

We are looking for technical professionals who have recognized certification related to their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft MCSE certificate. For Cisco consultants, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security credentials. Naturally, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” However, simply because a credential can not guarantee expertise is no excuse for not having one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of these tests should present no challenge. The point is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients expect certifications. Progent will broadcast your talents, but you should have basic credentials for us to market. If you are adamantly opposed to the idea of certifications, Progent can understand and respect your position, but you are likely not a good fit.

Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the best professional talent for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art system architecture, running custom software tools to deliver the maximum quality of support, and by optimizing our business models for attracting and maintaining clients.

The main factor that distinguishes us from ordinary network support companies is the excellence of our consultants. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with us, we have recruited the best talent across a wide range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other key areas, we deploy professionals who can help you to be effective on major jobs by leveraging the aggregate experience of Progent's group of professionals.

To promote the productivity of our team, we invest significantly in providing the best technology to do the work efficiently. Progent will leverage technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables seamless communications, collaboration, and information sharing with other Progent team members — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue with daily commutes to a physical office, and all travel you do for in-person client work is determined by your schedule, not Progent's. The best part is that much of Progent's support work can be done remotely, offering 100% productivity for billable time. In practice, some Progent staff do remote consulting exclusively.

Progent's operations are geared towards responding quickly and effectively to client needs via information exchange and collaborative problem solving. Although Progent's engineers operate with a high level of freedom, dispatching is centralized, customer issues and resolutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and organized for easy retrieval, current engineer availability is published to streamline team projects and simplify trouble escalation, and customer approval is always evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation via periodic workgroup conferences and regular corporate events.

The majority of our consultants are located throughout California, however we are attracting a rapidly growing team of network professionals from across America. Our virtual office environment eliminates geographic obstacles that limit the efficiency of conventional business structures. We enhance the deal by providing a comprehensive benefit plan to ensure the physical health and economic welfare of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consultants, our sales and operations groups live up to the excellence that characterizes Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s growth are enabling us to identify and land the scores of new clients we are currently acquiring each month. We recently celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective sales organization.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a key for success with us. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of network challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Clients choose consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Creative projects, leading-edge implementations, vexing or chronic issues, and tricky migrations are the basis for our services every day. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for network engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning excited about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by building close 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 company heart and soul. If you do not offer strong people skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse assortment of people, then we are probably a poor fit.

If all this seems good to you, we urge you to talk to Progent about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
