Details About Work at Progent

Career Work for Network Engineers, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent wants to find staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco certified system consultants who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security consultants who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security certification; and advanced system architecture consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, service continuity, disaster recovery, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring employees to join Progent's team of helpdesk support technicians and remote support professionals. Also, Progent is looking for talented administrators able to perform productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and motivated consultants, delivering world-class customer services, and following a strong value-based pricing model, Progent has been able to expand our customer list dramatically while delivering consulting support to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared information base, and a team approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a loyal client base.

If you are a network consultant with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or working for Progent's customers can enhance your skills through cooperation 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 offer you the opportunity to work closely with decision makers and add appreciably to the success of exciting companies.

Progent is hiring consultants who have verifiable certification in their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco consultants, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP credential. For security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other top security certifications. Of course, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". However, simply because a credential can not guarantee expertise is no reason for not earning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of those tests should present no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you are an expert, then clients expect certifications. We can market your skills, but you should have a baseline of credentials for us to work with. In case you happen to be adamantly against the concept of certifications, we can understand and respect your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Mac, Linux, VMware, or other crucial technologies, we deploy professionals who can help you to be effective on larger projects by leveraging the collective experience of Progent's team of professionals.

To promote the productivity of our team, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful tools to do the job efficiently. We will exploit technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables effortless connectivity, collaboration, and information exchange with other Progent team members — all from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit income with regular commutes to a conventional office, and all driving you do for on-site customer work is determined by your own time table, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that most of Progent's support services can be performed off-site, offering 100% efficiency for billable hours. In fact, some Progent staff do remote consulting only.

Our business structure is geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to customer requirements through knowledge sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Although our consultants operate with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is unified, customer issues and resolutions are carefully tracked, documented, and organized for easy reference, current consultant availability is broadcast to streamline group tasks and enable problem escalation, and client satisfaction is continually evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation via periodic workgroup meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's consultants are situated across Northern California, however we are attracting a rapidly expanding group of network professionals from across America. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic boundaries that restrict the efficiency of conventional company structures. We complete the package by offering a full benefit program to promote the health and economic security of our team members and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's sales and administration groups match the excellence that defines Progent.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of technical challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Clients rely on a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, leading-edge deployments, vexing or entrenched problems, and tricky migrations are the foundation for our services daily. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for network professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every morning excited about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by establishing close client contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization through and through. If you do not have excellent communications skills or like cooperating with a diverse assortment of people, then we are probably a poor fit.

If this seems good to you, we urge you to talk to us about our view of the new paradigm of network consulting.
