Additional Facts Concerning Opportunities at Progent

Fulltime Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco accredited network consultants who have CCIE certification; security consultants with CISSP or equivalent security credentials; and advanced network design consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, service continuity, business continuity, information preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks employees who can join our team of help desk support specialists and off-site support experts. In addition, Progent is looking for experienced managers able to perform effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of talented and motivated consultants, delivering world-class client services, and following a competitive results-based pricing model, Progent has managed to increase our client list rapidly while providing professional support to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common information base, and a group strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a loyal client list.

For an information technology consultant with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or helping Progent's customers will expand your skills through interaction with our staff of highly supportive, expert engineers. Our commitment to providing information technology consulting and computer help to small companies will give you the chance to work intimately with key players and add appreciably to the growth of exciting companies.

We are hiring consultants that have verifiable credentials in their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco experts, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other top security credentials. Naturally, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Still, simply because a certificate can not guarantee excellence is no excuse for not earning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of these certifications should pose no challenge. The bottom line is that if you are a professional, then clients deserve to see certifications. Progent can broadcast your talents, but you need to provide basic certifications for us to market. If you stand adamantly opposed to the concept of credentials, Progent can understand and respect your position, but you are likely not a good fit.

Enhance Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Working with the Top Team of Computer Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a more capable consultant by enhancing your information technology knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the best professional experts for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications infrastructure, using proprietary software tools to enable the maximum quality of service, and by optimizing proven business structures for finding and keeping customers.

The most important factor that separates Progent from other network support companies is the quality of our consulting team. Among the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with us, we have assembled the best expertise across a broad range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other key application, we engage professionals who can help you to be effective on larger jobs by leveraging the collective experience of our group of professionals.

To promote the success of Progent's team, we invest heavily in providing the best technology to do the work properly. Progent will leverage technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows effortless communications, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with other Progent team members — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose revenue with regular commutes to a physical office, and any travel you do for on-site customer work is based on your time table, not Progent's. The best benefit is that much of our support services can be performed off-site, offering maximum efficiency for income-producing time. In fact, some Progent staff do off-site consulting exclusively.

Our operations are set up for responding quickly and efficiently to client requirements through knowledge exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Even though our engineers operate with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is centralized, customer problems and resolutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and archived for convenient reference, up-to-date engineer schedules are broadcast to facilitate team tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is continually monitored. We strengthen the sense of cooperation through periodic team conferences and regular company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's team is located across California, however Progent is building a quickly expanding team of network professionals throughout the United States. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic boundaries that restrict the productivity of conventional company structures. We complete the deal by providing a comprehensive employee care plan to ensure the health and financial welfare of our team members and their families.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's sales and administration groups live up to the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind our growth are helping us to target and sign up the scores of new clients we are now engaging every month. Progent lately celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective marketing operation.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a key for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of technical challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Clients choose consulting firms to do the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or entrenched issues, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for computer engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will work with some great folks, both by establishing close client contacts and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused company through and through. If you do not have strong people skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse assortment of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good fit.

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

Enjoy Quality of Life Improvements and Professional Success with
Our Sophisticated Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent is convinced that a carefully designed and executed network can be a pivotal factor for enabling a company's growth, and we apply this belief in our corporate system environment. Progent has created a non-stop virtual office infrastructure that allows Progent's in-house engineers and certified contractors to offer rapid and efficient support, collaborate closely on complex jobs, and gain from professional and private growth from acting as part of a dynamic business ethos of self motivation and freedom.
