Details About Work at Progent

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

Progent wants to hire fulltime, results-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco accredited system consultants with Cisco CCIE credentials; security professionals who have CISSP or comparable security credentials; and high-end system architecture consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, high uptime, disaster recovery, data protection, and VMware. Progent also is looking for professionals to join Progent's staff of desktop service specialists and off-site support professionals. In addition, Progent is looking for talented managers who can perform effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of talented and motivated professionals, providing world-class client care, and following a strong value-based fee structure, We have been able to increase our client base dramatically while providing professional services to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a common knowledge base, and a group approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a talented staff and a loyal client base.

If you are a network professional with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's customers will expand your knowledge via interaction with our staff of highly team-oriented, expert consultants. Our commitment to providing network expertise and computer help to small and midsize companies will give you the opportunity to work closely with key players and contribute significantly to the growth of dynamic companies.

We are looking for technical professionals who have verifiable certification related to their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco experts, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security credentials. Of course, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” However, the fact that a credential does not guarantee excellence is no reason for not having one. If you have mastered your field, then most of those certifications should present no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients expect credentials. Progent can promote your talents, but you should have a baseline of credentials for us to market. In case you are adamantly opposed to the idea of certifications, we can understand and honor your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

Improve Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Working with the Top Group of Computer Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a better consultant by enhancing your technical skills and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the best professional talent for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, using proprietary software tools to deliver the highest quality of support, and by optimizing proven business structures for attracting and keeping customers.

The main factor that differentiates us from most network support firms is the high caliber of our consulting team. Among the scores of consultants who have teamed with us, we have recruited top expertise across a broad range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other vital areas, we engage experts who can help you to be successful on major jobs by combining the aggregate skills of Progent's team of professionals.

To promote the productivity of our consultants, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful technology to do the work efficiently. We will exploit information technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables seamless communications, cooperation, and information exchange with other Progent team members — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of daily commutes to a physical office, and all travel you do for on-site client work is determined by your own schedule, not ours. The best benefit is that much of our consulting services can be performed remotely, offering maximum efficiency for billable hours. In fact, some of our staff do remote consulting only.

Progent's operations are set up for reacting rapidly and effectively to customer needs through knowledge sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Although Progent's consultants operate with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is unified, client problems and resolutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and archived for easy retrieval, current engineer schedules are broadcast to streamline group projects and simplify problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is always evaluated. We reinforce the sense of connection via monthly team conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of Progent's consultants are situated across Northern California, however Progent is attracting a quickly expanding group of consulting experts from across America. Our virtual office environment eliminates geographic boundaries that restrict the efficiency of traditional business structures. We enhance the package by offering a full employee care program to promote the health and financial welfare of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, Progent's marketing and administration groups match the excellence that defines Progent. These high-performance contributors to our growth are enabling us to identify and land the scores of new clients we are now acquiring each month. We recently marked the providing of support to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing organization.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for success with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of technical challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Clients choose consultants to do the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or entrenched problems, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for what we do every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for network professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will work with some great folks, both by building strong client contacts and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused organization from top to bottom. If you don’t have excellent communications skills or like cooperating with a varied group of personalities, then we are in all likelihood a poor fit.

If this seems right for you, we invite you to talk to us about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.

Enjoy Quality of Life Improvements and Professional Success with
Progent's Advanced Virtual Office Environment

Progent is convinced that a carefully architected and executed network can be a pivotal factor for accelerating any company's growth, and Progent applies this belief in our own system environment.
