Additional Facts Concerning Opportunities with Us

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

Progent is seeking to hire full-time, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco certified system consultants who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security consultants who have CISM or equivalent security certification; and advanced network design consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, high uptime, disaster recovery, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for professionals to work on Progent's team of desktop support technicians and off-site troubleshooting professionals. Also, Progent is hiring experienced administrators who can perform productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and dedicated consultants, providing world-class customer care, and following a strong results-based pricing model, We have managed to expand our client list dramatically while delivering consulting support to numerous businesses in Northern California and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a common knowledge base, and a team strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a loyal client base.

If you are an information technology professional with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or helping Progent's customers will enhance your skills via cooperation with Progent's staff of mutually supportive, expert consultants. Progent's focus on delivering network expertise and computer help to small companies will offer you the opportunity to work intimately with key players and add appreciably to the growth of exciting businesses.

Progent is hiring technical professionals that have verifiable credentials in their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco professionals, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security certifications. Naturally, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” Still, simply because a credential can not ensure excellence is no reason for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then most of these certifications should present no challenge. The bottom line is that if you are a professional, then customers deserve to see certifications. Progent can broadcast your skills, but you must provide basic credentials for us to work with. In case you are strongly against the idea of certifications, we can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are probably not a good fit.

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

Progent's company culture will make you a more capable consultant by improving your technical skills and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the best consulting talent for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art system architecture, running custom software utilities to deliver the highest level of support, and by streamlining our operational structures for finding and maintaining customers.

The decisive factor that differentiates Progent from other consulting firms is the high caliber of our consulting team. Among the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited the best expertise covering a broad range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other vital technologies, we engage experts who can enable you to be successful on larger projects by leveraging the aggregate skills of our group of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful tools to perform the job properly. Progent will exploit technology to an extraordinary degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables effortless communications, collaboration, and information sharing with fellow Progent team members — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or lose revenue because of regular commutes to a physical office building, and any driving you do for in-person client work is determined by your own time table, not Progent's. The best benefit is that much of our support services can be performed remotely, offering maximum productivity for income-producing time. In practice, some Progent staff do off-site support only.

Progent's operations are geared towards responding quickly and efficiently to customer needs via knowledge exchange and cooperative problem solving. Even though Progent's engineers work with a great deal of independence, dispatching is unified, customer issues and resolutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and organized for convenient reference, up-to-date consultant schedules are published to facilitate team tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is always evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation through periodic team conferences and quarterly corporate events.

The majority of Progent's consultants are located across California, however we are building a rapidly growing group of network professionals throughout the U.S. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with regional boundaries that limit the productivity of conventional business structures. We enhance the package by providing a comprehensive employee care plan to promote the physical health and financial security of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and operations groups live up to the high standards that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s growth are helping us to target and land the 50-60 new customers we are currently engaging every month. We lately celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective sales operation.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of network challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Customers choose a consultant to perform the toughest jobs. Creative projects, advanced deployments, puzzling or entrenched problems, and tricky upgrades are the basis for what we do daily. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for computer engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will work with some great folks, both by establishing close client contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused company heart and soul. If you don’t offer strong communications skills or enjoy working with a diverse assortment of people, then we are probably not a good fit.

If this seems good to you, we urge you to contact Progent about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
