Details Concerning Opportunities at Progent

Career Jobs for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Specialists,
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 system consultants who have CCIE credentials; security consultants with CISM or equivalent security credentials; and high-end network design consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high availability, business continuity, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for professionals to join our team of desktop service technicians and remote troubleshooting professionals. In addition, We are looking for talented administrators able to perform productively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of talented and motivated professionals, delivering attentive client care, and following a competitive results-based pricing structure, Progent has managed to expand our client list rapidly while providing professional support to hundreds of companies in the San Francisco area and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a common knowledge base, and a group strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a loyal customer list.

If you are an information technology consultant with technical support expertise, joining Progent or working for Progent's clients will expand your knowledge through interaction with our group of highly team-oriented, expert consultants. Our commitment to providing information technology expertise and technical help to small and midsize organizations will give you the chance to work closely with key players and contribute significantly to the success of exciting companies.

Progent is looking for technical professionals that can show verifiable credentials related to their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your MCSE credential. For Cisco experts, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, the fact that a credential does not ensure excellence is no reason for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then most of these certifications should present no challenge. The point is that if you call yourself an expert, then customers deserve to see certifications. We will market your talents, but you must provide standard certifications for Progent to work with. If you are strongly against the idea of credentials, Progent can understand and honor your opinion, but you are probably not a good fit.

Enhance Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Working with the Top Team of Network Consultants

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a more capable consultant by enhancing your technical skills and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the best professional talent for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, using custom application tools to deliver the maximum quality of support, and by streamlining our business structures for attracting and keeping clients.

The main factor that distinguishes Progent from typical consulting companies is the quality of our consultants. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have joined Progent, we have recruited the best expertise across a wide array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Mac, Linux, server virtualization, or other key technologies, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be successful on major jobs by combining the collective skills of Progent's group of professionals.

To ensure the success of our consultants, we invest significantly in making available the best technology to perform the job efficiently. Progent will leverage information technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office environment allows effortless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with other Progent consultants — all from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or lose revenue with daily commutes to a physical office building, and all driving you do for on-site client work is determined by your time table, not Progent's. The best benefit is that most of our support services can be done off-site, representing 100% efficiency for billable time. In practice, some of our staff do off-site support exclusively.

Progent's business structure is set up for reacting quickly and efficiently to client needs through information exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Even though our consultants work with a great deal of independence, dispatching is centralized, client problems and solutions are carefully tracked, documented, and archived for convenient reference, current engineer availability is published to facilitate group projects and simplify problem escalation, and client approval is continually monitored. We reinforce the sense of connection through periodic workgroup meetings and regular corporate events.

The majority of our consultants are situated throughout California, but Progent is building a rapidly expanding team of network professionals from across the United States. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with regional boundaries that limit the productivity of conventional company models. We complete the package by providing a full benefit plan to promote the physical health and economic security of our employees and their families.

Just as we have awesome consultants, Progent's sales and operations groups live up to the high standards that defines Progent. These top-notch contributors to our success are helping us to target and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are currently acquiring every month. We recently celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong sales organization.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being exposed to a steady series of technical challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Customers choose consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or entrenched issues, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for what we do daily. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for network engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning excited about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some great folks, both by establishing strong client relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you do not offer excellent communications skills or like working with a diverse assortment of people, then we are in all likelihood not a good match.

If all this sounds right for you, we invite you to contact Progent about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.
