More Information Concerning Work at Progent

Staff Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Technicians

Progent wants to find fulltime, results-driven Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco accredited network consultants who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security professionals who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security certification; and high-end system design consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high uptime, disaster recovery, information protection, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks professionals to work on our team of helpdesk support specialists and remote support professionals. In addition, We are seeking talented administrators able to perform effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of skilled and motivated consultants, providing world-class customer care, and following a competitive results-based fee structure, We have been able to increase our customer base rapidly while delivering professional support to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared information base, and a group approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a talented staff and a satisfied customer list.

If you are a network consultant with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or working for our customers will enhance your skills through cooperation with Progent's group of mutually supportive, talented engineers. Our focus on delivering information technology consulting and technical support to small organizations will give you the opportunity to work closely with key players and add significantly to the success of dynamic companies.

We are hiring technical professionals who have recognized certification in their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco experts, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should show you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security credentials. Naturally, we are familiar with "paper experts". However, simply because a certificate does not ensure excellence is no justification for not having one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of these tests should be no great difficulty. The point is that if you call yourself an expert, then customers expect credentials. We will promote your skills, but you should provide basic certifications for Progent to market. If you are adamantly opposed to the concept of credentials, Progent can understand and honor your position, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Enhance Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Working with a Great Group of Computer Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a more capable consultant by improving your information technology knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your customers. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the top professional experts for you to work with, offering an advanced system architecture, running custom application utilities to enable the maximum quality of support, and by optimizing proven operational structures for finding and keeping clients.

The most important factor that separates Progent from typical network support firms is the high caliber of our service staff. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled the best talent across a broad range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Apple, Linux, virtual servers, or other vital technologies, we deploy experts who can enable you to be effective on larger projects by combining the aggregate experience of our team of experts.

To ensure the productivity of our team, we invest significantly in making available the best tools to perform the work properly. Progent will leverage information technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office environment allows seamless communications, cooperation, and information exchange with other Progent team members — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit revenue with daily drives to a conventional office building, and any driving you do for on-site customer jobs is determined by your time table, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that most of our consulting services can be done remotely, representing 100% efficiency for billable time. In practice, some Progent team members do remote support only.

Our business structure is geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to customer needs through knowledge exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Even though our consultants operate with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is unified, client issues and resolutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and archived for easy retrieval, current engineer schedules are broadcast to facilitate team projects and simplify trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually monitored. We reinforce the sense of cooperation through periodic team meetings and quarterly corporate events.

The majority of our consultants are located across Northern California, but Progent is attracting a quickly expanding team of consulting experts from across the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic boundaries that restrict the efficiency of conventional business structures. We complete the package by offering a comprehensive employee care program to promote the health and economic security of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consultants, Progent's sales and administration groups match the high standards that defines Progent. These high-performance contributors to our success are enabling us to identify and land the 50-60 new customers we are now acquiring each month. Progent lately celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong sales operation.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a key for success with us. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of network challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Clients choose consultants to do the toughest jobs. Creative projects, leading-edge implementations, vexing or entrenched issues, and difficult migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for computer professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every morning excited about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will work with some great folks, both by building strong customer relationships and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused organization from top to bottom. If you do not offer excellent communications skills or like working with a varied assortment of personalities, then we are in all likelihood a poor match.

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