Additional Facts About Jobs at Progent

Career Work for Network Consultants, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to find full-time, solutions-driven Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP certification; Cisco certified system consultants with Cisco CCIE credentials; security professionals with CISA or equivalent security credentials; and high-end network design consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, fault tolerance, workplace recovery, data protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for employees who can join our team of help desk service technicians and off-site troubleshooting professionals. In addition, Progent is hiring talented administrators who can perform productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of skilled and motivated consultants, delivering world-class client care, and following a competitive value-based pricing structure, Progent has managed to increase our client list dramatically while delivering consulting support to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared knowledge database, and a group strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a skilled staff and a satisfied customer list.

If you are a network consultant with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's customers can enhance your knowledge through cooperation with Progent's group of mutually team-oriented, talented engineers. Progent's commitment to providing network expertise and computer support to small organizations will give you the chance to work intimately with key players and add appreciably to the success of dynamic companies.

Progent is looking for consultants who have verifiable certification in their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. For Cisco professionals, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security certifications. Of course, we are aware of "paper experts". Nevertheless, simply because a certificate does not guarantee expertise is no reason for not having one. If you have mastered your field, then most of these certifications should present no challenge. The bottom line is that if you call yourself an expert, then customers deserve to see certifications. We can promote your talents, but you need to provide standard credentials for us to work with. If you stand strongly opposed to the idea of certifications, Progent can understand and respect your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Progent delivers on this commitment by recruiting the best consulting talent for you to work with, offering an advanced system infrastructure, using specialized application utilities to deliver the maximum level of service, and by streamlining our business structures for attracting and maintaining customers.

The main factor that differentiates us from other network support companies is the high quality of our support professionals.

To ensure the success of Progent's team, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful tools to perform the work properly. Progent will exploit information technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office environment allows seamless communications, collaboration, and information exchange with other Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue with daily drives to a physical office, and any driving you do for in-person customer jobs is determined by your schedule, not Progent's. The best benefit is that much of our consulting work can be done off-site, offering maximum efficiency for income-producing hours. In fact, some Progent team members do off-site consulting only.

Progent's operations are set up for reacting quickly and efficiently to client requirements via information exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Although our engineers work with a high level of independence, resource allocation is centralized, customer issues and solutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and organized for easy retrieval, up-to-date engineer schedules are broadcast to streamline team projects and simplify problem escalation, and customer approval is always monitored. We reinforce the feeling of connection through monthly workgroup conferences and quarterly corporate events.

The majority of Progent's team is located throughout Northern California, but we are building a quickly expanding group of network professionals throughout the U.S. Our virtual office environment eliminates regional obstacles that restrict the productivity of traditional business models.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a key for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of network challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Clients choose consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, leading-edge deployments, vexing or chronic issues, and tricky migrations are the basis for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every day excited about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will work with some great folks, both by establishing strong customer relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented organization through and through. If you don’t have strong people skills or like working with a varied group of personalities, then Progent is probably a poor fit.
