Additional Facts Concerning Jobs at Progent

Staff Jobs for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to find fulltime, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco accredited network engineers with Cisco CCIE or CCNP credentials; security consultants with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security certification; and advanced network architecture consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high availability, workplace recovery, data protection, and VMware. Progent also is looking for employees to join Progent's team of helpdesk support technicians and remote support experts. Also, Progent is looking for experienced administrators able to perform productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of talented and motivated professionals, delivering attentive client care, and offering a strong results-based fee model, Progent has been able to increase our client list dramatically while delivering consulting services to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and across the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a common knowledge base, and a team approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied customer list.

For an information technology professional with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or working for Progent's clients will enhance your knowledge via interaction with our group of highly supportive, talented engineers. Our commitment to providing information technology expertise and technical support to small organizations will give you the chance to work intimately with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the success of dynamic companies.

Progent is hiring consultants that have verifiable certification in their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco experts, have your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” However, simply because a certificate can not ensure excellence is no excuse for not earning one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of those tests should be no challenge. The bottom line is that if you are an expert, then clients deserve to see credentials. We can broadcast your skills, but you must provide a baseline of certifications for Progent to market. If you are adamantly opposed to the concept of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are likely not a good fit.

Enhance Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Working with a Great Group of Computer Consultants

Progent's company culture will make you a better consultant by enhancing your information technology skills and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the best consulting experts for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications infrastructure, running proprietary application utilities to deliver the highest quality of support, and by streamlining proven operational models for finding and maintaining customers.

The most important factor that distinguishes us from other consulting firms is the high caliber of our consulting team. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined us, we have assembled top expertise covering a wide range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Apple, Linux, server virtualization, or other crucial application, we deploy professionals who can help you to be effective on major jobs by leveraging the aggregate experience of our group of experts.

To promote the success of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful tools to perform the job efficiently. We will leverage technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office environment enables effortless communications, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent consultants — all from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or lose revenue because of regular commutes to a conventional office, and all travel you do for on-site client jobs is determined by your time table, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that most of our support work can be performed remotely, representing 100% productivity for billable hours. In fact, some of our team members do off-site consulting exclusively.

Our operations are geared towards responding rapidly and effectively to client requirements via information sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Even though Progent's engineers operate with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is unified, client problems and resolutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and archived for easy reference, up-to-date engineer availability is published to facilitate team projects and enable trouble escalation, and customer approval is continually monitored. We strengthen the sense of connection via periodic workgroup conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of Progent's team is situated throughout Northern California, but Progent is attracting a rapidly growing group of network experts throughout America. Our virtual office environment does away with geographic boundaries that limit the productivity of conventional business models. We complete the deal by offering a full employee care plan to ensure the physical health and economic security of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, our sales and operations groups match the excellence that defines Progent. These top-notch factors behind our growth are helping us to identify and land the 50-60 new clients we are now acquiring each month. Progent recently celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective marketing organization.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a key for success with us. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of technical challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Customers choose consulting firms to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or entrenched problems, and tricky migrations are the basis for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for network engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will meet some great people, both by establishing close client relationships and by working closely 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 from top to bottom. If you do not have strong communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse assortment of personalities, then we are probably a poor match.

If all this seems good to you, we invite you to talk to Progent about our vision of the future of network consulting.
