Additional Facts About Opportunities at Progent

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

Progent is seeking to find full-time, solutions-driven Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco certified system consultants with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security professionals with CISSP or comparable security credentials; and advanced system architecture experts with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, service continuity, workplace recovery, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks employees who can join our staff of helpdesk support technicians and off-site troubleshooting experts. Also, We are seeking experienced managers who can perform effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of talented and motivated professionals, delivering world-class client care, and following a competitive results-based pricing structure, We have managed to increase our customer base rapidly while providing professional support to hundreds of companies in Northern California and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a shared knowledge base, and a group approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a talented staff and a loyal client list.

For an information technology consultant with technical support experience, joining Progent or working for our customers can expand your skills through interaction with our staff of highly team-oriented, talented consultants. Progent's commitment to delivering network expertise and computer support to small and midsize companies will offer you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with key players and contribute appreciably to the growth of dynamic businesses.

Progent is looking for consultants who can show recognized credentials in their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. For Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should have you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or one of the other leading security credentials. Naturally, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, simply because a credential can not guarantee expertise is no justification for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of those certifications should be no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you are a professional, then clients deserve to see certifications. We will market your talents, but you must have basic credentials for us to market. If you are strongly against the idea of credentials, we can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Enhance Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Team of Network Consultants

Progent's work environment will make you a more capable consultant by improving your information technology skills and boosting the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this commitment by recruiting the top consulting talent for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications infrastructure, running proprietary application tools to deliver the highest level of service, and by streamlining our operational models for attracting and retaining customers.

The decisive factor that distinguishes Progent from ordinary network support firms is the high quality of our consultants. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled the best expertise across a wide range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other vital areas, we engage professionals who can help you to be successful on larger projects by combining the collective skills of Progent's team of experts.

To ensure the productivity of our consultants, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful technology to do the job properly. Progent will leverage information technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables seamless communications, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with other Progent team members — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit revenue because of regular commutes to a physical office building, and any travel you do for in-person client work is based on your own time table, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that much of Progent's support work can be performed remotely, representing 100% productivity for billable hours. In fact, some Progent staff do remote consulting exclusively.

Progent's operations are set up for responding rapidly and effectively to customer needs through information exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Although Progent's consultants work with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is unified, customer issues and resolutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for easy reference, up-to-date consultant schedules are published to streamline team projects and enable problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is always evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation through monthly team meetings and regular company-wide events.

Most of our consultants are situated throughout Northern California, but we are attracting a quickly expanding team of network experts from across America. Our virtual office environment eliminates regional boundaries that limit the productivity of traditional company structures. We enhance the deal by offering a full benefit plan to promote the physical health and economic welfare of our employees and their families.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, our marketing and operations groups match the high standards that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s success are enabling us to identify and land the 50-60 new clients we are currently engaging every month. Progent lately marked the providing 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 organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency 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 job in network technology. Being confronted by a continual series of technical challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Customers choose a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Creative projects, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or chronic problems, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for our services daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will work with some great folks, both by establishing strong client contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused organization through and through. If you do not have strong people skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied group of personalities, then we are probably a poor fit.

If all this seems right for you, we invite you to talk to us about our vision of the future of information technology consulting.
