Additional Facts About Work at Progent

Career Work for Network Consultants, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent wants to hire staff-level, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco accredited network engineers who have Cisco credentials; security consultants who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security credentials; and high-end network architecture consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, high availability, workplace recovery, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring professionals to join our team of helpdesk support specialists and off-site support professionals. In addition, We are seeking experienced managers able to perform effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of skilled and motivated professionals, delivering attentive customer services, and offering a strong value-based pricing model, Progent has managed to increase our client list rapidly while delivering professional services to numerous companies in the San Francisco area and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared information base, and a group approach to problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a loyal customer list.

If you are an information technology consultant with troubleshooting experience, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's customers will expand your knowledge via cooperation with Progent's staff of highly team-oriented, expert engineers. Our focus on providing network consulting and computer support to small companies will give you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with decision makers and contribute significantly to the success of exciting companies.

We are hiring technical professionals who have verifiable certification related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or CCNP credential. For network security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other top security credentials. Naturally, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, simply because a credential can not ensure excellence is no justification for not owning one. If you have mastered your field, then most of those tests should present no challenge. The bottom line is that if you are a professional, then customers deserve to see credentials. Progent will promote your skills, but you should have a baseline of certifications for Progent to work with. In case you stand adamantly opposed to the concept of credentials, we can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Enhance Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Working with the Top Group of Computer Consultants

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a better professional by improving your information technology skills and boosting the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the best professional talent for you to work with, providing an advanced network and communications infrastructure, running custom software utilities to deliver the highest level of service, and by optimizing our business structures for attracting and keeping customers.

The main factor that differentiates us from most network support companies is the excellence of our consultants. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined us, we have assembled top talent covering a broad array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Mac, Linux, virtual servers, or other vital technologies, we deploy experts who can help you to be successful on larger jobs by combining the aggregate skills of our group of experts.

To promote the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful technology to perform the job properly. We will leverage technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office environment allows effortless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with other Progent team members — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or lose income with daily commutes to a conventional office building, and all driving you do for in-person client jobs is based on your own schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that much of Progent's support work can be done off-site, offering maximum productivity for billable hours. In fact, some Progent staff do remote support exclusively.

Our operations are geared towards responding quickly and effectively to client requirements through knowledge exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Even though Progent's consultants operate with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is unified, client problems and resolutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and archived for convenient retrieval, up-to-date consultant availability is broadcast to facilitate group tasks and enable trouble escalation, and customer approval is continually evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of connection through monthly workgroup conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of our consultants are situated across California, however we are attracting a quickly expanding group of consulting professionals throughout the U.S. Progent's virtual office environment does away with regional boundaries that limit the efficiency of traditional business models. We complete the package by providing a comprehensive benefit plan to ensure the health and financial welfare of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's sales and administration teams match the high standards that is Progent. These top-notch factors behind our success are enabling us to target and land the 50-60 new clients we are currently acquiring each month. Progent recently marked the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong marketing operation.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a continual series of technical challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Customers rely on consultants to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, advanced implementations, puzzling or chronic issues, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for computer professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some great folks, both by building strong customer contacts and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused company from top to bottom. If you don’t have excellent communications skills or like cooperating with a varied group of people, then we are in all likelihood not a good fit.

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