Details Concerning Opportunities at Progent

Fulltime Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to find full-time, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco certified network engineers who have Cisco credentials; security professionals who have CISA or equivalent security credentials; and advanced network architecture experts with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, service continuity, workplace recovery, data preservation, and VMware. Progent also is hiring employees who can join our team of desktop support specialists and remote troubleshooting experts. Also, Progent is hiring talented administrators who can perform effectively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of skilled and dedicated professionals, providing attentive customer care, and following a competitive value-focused fee model, We have managed to increase our customer list dramatically while delivering professional services to numerous businesses in the San Francisco area and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a common information database, and a team strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a talented staff and a loyal client base.

If you are an information technology professional with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or working for our clients can enhance your knowledge through cooperation with our group of highly supportive, expert consultants. Progent's focus on delivering information technology consulting and technical help to small companies will give you the chance to work intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the success of exciting companies.

Progent is looking for technical professionals who can show recognized certification in their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. In the case of Cisco professionals, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security credentials. Of course, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, the fact that a credential does not ensure excellence is no reason for not earning one. If you have mastered your field, then most of these certifications should present no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself an expert, then customers expect credentials. We can promote your skills, but you should provide a baseline of credentials for Progent to work with. If you happen to be adamantly opposed to the concept of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

Enhance Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Network Engineers

Progent's business climate will make you a better consultant by enhancing your technical knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the top professional talent for you to work with, providing an advanced system infrastructure, running custom application tools to enable the highest level of service, and by optimizing proven operational structures for attracting and retaining clients.

The decisive factor that differentiates us from typical consulting firms is the high caliber of our consultants. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have assembled top talent covering a wide array of technologies. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other crucial areas, we engage experts who can enable you to be effective on larger projects by leveraging the aggregate experience of Progent's group of experts.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful tools to perform the job efficiently. We will exploit information technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office environment allows seamless communications, cooperation, and information sharing with other Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit revenue because of regular drives to a conventional office, and all travel you do for on-site client jobs is based on your schedule, not ours. The best part is that most of our support work can be done off-site, offering 100% efficiency for billable time. In fact, some of our team members do off-site support exclusively.

Our business structure is geared towards responding quickly and effectively to client needs through information sharing and collaborative problem solving. Although our engineers work with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is unified, client problems and solutions are carefully tracked, documented, and organized for easy retrieval, current consultant availability is published to facilitate group projects and enable trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is always monitored. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation via monthly team conferences and regular corporate events.

The majority of our consultants are located throughout Northern California, but Progent is building a quickly growing group of consulting professionals from across America. Our virtual office environment does away with geographic boundaries that restrict the efficiency of traditional business models. We complete the package by offering a comprehensive employee care program to ensure the health and financial security of our team members and their families.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, our marketing and operations groups live up to the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s success are helping us to identify and sign up the scores of new clients we are now engaging every month. Progent lately marked 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 a strong sales operation.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with us. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a continual series of network challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Clients choose consulting firms to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, advanced implementations, vexing or entrenched problems, and difficult migrations are the basis for what we do daily. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for network professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every day enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some great folks, both by establishing close customer contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company through and through. If you don’t offer excellent communications skills or like cooperating with a diverse group of personalities, then we are probably not a good fit.

If all this sounds right for you, we urge you to talk to Progent about our view of the future of information technology consulting.

Enjoy Lifestyle Improvements and Professional Prowess with
Progent's Advanced Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent is convinced that a well architected and executed network can be a pivotal piece for enabling a firm's success, and we apply this credo in our own network infrastructure.
