Additional Facts About Work at Progent

Staff Work for Network Engineers, Computer Service Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire staff-level, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco accredited system engineers with Cisco credentials; security professionals who have CISM or comparable security credentials; and high-end system design consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, high availability, disaster recovery, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also seeks professionals to join Progent's staff of helpdesk support technicians and off-site troubleshooting experts. Also, Progent is looking for talented administrators who can operate effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of talented and motivated consultants, delivering attentive client services, and following a strong value-focused pricing model, Progent has managed to increase our customer list rapidly while providing professional services to hundreds of businesses in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared knowledge base, and a group strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a loyal customer list.

For a network consultant with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or working for our customers will expand your knowledge via interaction with our group of highly team-oriented, expert engineers. Progent's commitment to providing information technology expertise and technical support to small companies will offer you the opportunity to collaborate closely with key players and contribute appreciably to the success of exciting companies.

We are hiring consultants that have recognized certification in their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or one of the other leading security certifications. Of course, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Still, the fact that a credential can not guarantee excellence is no excuse for not having one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of these certifications should present no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you are a professional, then clients expect credentials. Progent will promote your talents, but you must have standard certifications for Progent to work with. If you stand strongly against the idea of credentials, we can understand and respect your position, but you are probably not a good fit.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Working with a Great Team of Network Engineers

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a more capable consultant by enhancing your information technology knowledge and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the best consulting experts for you to work with, offering an advanced system infrastructure, using proprietary software tools to deliver the maximum quality of service, and by streamlining our business models for finding and retaining customers.

The most important factor that separates us from ordinary network support firms is the quality of our support professionals. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have recruited the best talent covering a broad range of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Mac, Linux, VMware, or other vital application, we engage experts who can help you to be effective on larger projects by combining the aggregate experience of our group of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of our consultants, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful tools to perform the job efficiently. We will leverage information technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables effortless connectivity, cooperation, and information sharing with fellow Progent team members — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of regular drives to a physical office building, and any driving you do for on-site client work is determined by your own schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that much of Progent's support services can be performed off-site, offering maximum productivity for billable time. In fact, some of our team members do remote support exclusively.

Progent's business structure is set up for responding rapidly and effectively to customer needs via knowledge exchange and cooperative problem solving. Even though Progent's consultants operate with a high level of independence, resource allocation is unified, customer problems and resolutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and archived for easy reference, up-to-date consultant schedules are broadcast to streamline team projects and simplify problem escalation, and client approval is always monitored. We strengthen the sense of cooperation via periodic team conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of our team is located throughout California, but we are attracting a quickly growing team of network experts from across America. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic boundaries that limit the productivity of conventional company models. We complete the deal by providing a full benefit plan to promote the health and economic welfare of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, Progent's marketing and administration groups live up to the excellence that characterizes Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s success are helping us to identify and land the 50-60 new clients we are now engaging every month. Progent recently celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales operation.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of technical challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Customers choose consulting firms to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, advanced implementations, vexing or entrenched problems, and tricky migrations are the basis for our services daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for network professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every morning excited about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will meet some great people, both by building strong client contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused company from top to bottom. If you do not have excellent communications skills or like cooperating with a varied group of people, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor match.

If all this sounds good to you, we urge you to talk to us about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
