Additional Facts About Opportunities at Progent

Career Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Support Professionals

Progent wants to find staff-level, results-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco certified network engineers with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security consultants who have CISM or equivalent security certification; and high-end network design consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, service continuity, workplace recovery, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring employees who can join Progent's team of help desk support specialists and off-site troubleshooting professionals. In addition, We are hiring talented managers who can perform effectively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of talented and dedicated consultants, providing attentive customer services, and following a strong value-based fee structure, We have managed to increase our customer base rapidly while delivering consulting services to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a shared knowledge database, and a group strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a loyal client list.

For a network consultant with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or working for our customers will enhance your skills through interaction with our group of highly supportive, talented engineers. Our focus on providing network expertise and technical help to small organizations will offer you the opportunity to work closely with decision makers and contribute significantly to the success of dynamic businesses.

Progent is looking for consultants that have verifiable credentials in their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. In the case of Cisco experts, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security credentials. Naturally, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Still, simply because a certificate can not ensure excellence is no reason for not having one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of these tests should pose no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients expect certifications. Progent will promote your talents, but you must have standard certifications for us to work with. If you stand adamantly against the concept of certifications, we can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

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

Progent's business climate will make you a more capable professional by improving your information technology skills and boosting the loyalty of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the top consulting talent for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications infrastructure, using specialized application utilities to enable the maximum quality of support, and by streamlining proven business models for finding and retaining clients.

The decisive factor that differentiates us from typical consulting firms is the high quality of our consultants. Out of the scores of consultants who have teamed with us, we have recruited top expertise covering a broad range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other vital areas, we deploy experts who can enable you to be effective on larger projects by combining the aggregate experience of our team of experts.

To ensure the productivity of our team, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful tools to do the work efficiently. We will leverage technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables effortless communications, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with other Progent team members — entirely from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or lose income because of regular commutes to a conventional office building, and any driving you do for in-person customer work is determined by your own time table, not ours. The best part is that most of our support services can be performed off-site, representing 100% efficiency for billable time. In practice, some of our team members do remote support only.

Our business structure is set up for reacting quickly and efficiently to client requirements through information exchange and cooperative problem solving. Although Progent's consultants work with a high level of independence, dispatching is centralized, client problems and solutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and archived for convenient reference, up-to-date engineer schedules are broadcast to facilitate team tasks and enable trouble escalation, and client approval is continually monitored. We strengthen the feeling of connection through monthly team conferences and regular corporate events.

Most of our consultants are located throughout California, but we are attracting a quickly expanding team of network professionals throughout the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional obstacles that limit the productivity of conventional business structures. We complete the package by offering a full employee care plan to promote the health and economic security of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's sales and administration teams live up to the excellence that is Progent. These top-notch contributors to our growth are enabling us to identify and sign up the scores of new clients we are currently engaging every month. Progent recently celebrated the delivery 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 marketing operation.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a key for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a steady series of network challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Clients choose consultants to do the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, advanced deployments, vexing or entrenched issues, and difficult upgrades are the basis for our services every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for network professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every day enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will meet some great folks, both by establishing strong customer relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization through and through. If you don’t have strong people skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied assortment of personalities, then Progent is probably not a good match.

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