More Information About Work at Progent

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

Progent wants to find full-time, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP certification; Cisco accredited network consultants who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP credentials; security consultants who have CISM or comparable security credentials; and advanced network architecture consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high availability, disaster recovery, information protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for employees who can work on Progent's staff of desktop support specialists and remote support professionals. Also, Progent is seeking talented administrators able to operate productively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of skilled and dedicated professionals, providing attentive client services, and following a competitive value-based fee structure, Progent has been able to expand our client list dramatically while providing professional services to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared knowledge database, and a group approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a talented staff and a loyal customer list.

For an information technology consultant with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or working for our clients will enhance your knowledge through cooperation with our staff of mutually supportive, expert engineers. Our commitment to providing network expertise and computer help to small and midsize companies will give you the opportunity to work intimately with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the success of dynamic businesses.

We are looking for consultants who have verifiable certification in their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. In the case of Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security certifications. Of course, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Notwithstanding, the fact that a certificate does not guarantee excellence is no excuse for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of those tests should be no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers expect credentials. Progent will market your talents, but you must have basic credentials for us to market. If you happen to be strongly opposed to the idea of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are probably not a good candidate.

Enhance Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Network Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a more capable professional by enhancing your information technology skills and boosting the satisfaction of your customers. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the top consulting experts for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, using custom software tools to enable the highest quality of service, and by streamlining proven business models for finding and keeping customers.

The decisive factor that separates Progent from ordinary network support companies is the high caliber of our consultants. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined Progent, we have recruited top talent across a wide range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other crucial technologies, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be successful on larger jobs by leveraging the aggregate experience of our team of experts.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful tools to perform the job efficiently. We will leverage information technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables effortless connectivity, cooperation, and information sharing with other Progent team members — all from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit income because of regular drives to a physical office, and all travel you do for in-person client jobs is based on your time table, not ours. The best benefit is that most of Progent's support services can be done remotely, representing maximum productivity for income-producing time. In fact, some Progent team members do off-site support only.

Our business structure is geared towards reacting quickly and effectively to customer needs through knowledge exchange and collaborative problem solving. Although Progent's engineers operate with a high level of independence, dispatching is centralized, customer issues and solutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and organized for easy reference, current engineer availability is published to streamline team projects and simplify problem escalation, and client satisfaction is continually evaluated. We strengthen the sense of connection via monthly team meetings and regular corporate events.

The majority of Progent's team is situated across California, but Progent is building a rapidly growing group of consulting professionals from across the U.S. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic boundaries that limit the productivity of traditional business structures. We enhance the package by offering a full benefit program to ensure the physical health and financial welfare of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, our sales and administration teams match the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s growth are enabling us to target and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are currently acquiring every month. Progent lately celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing organization.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a key for success with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a continual series of network challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Clients rely on consulting firms to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, leading-edge implementations, vexing or entrenched problems, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for our services daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for network engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by building close customer relationships and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused company heart and soul. If you do not have strong people skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied assortment of personalities, then we are in all likelihood not a good fit.

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