Additional Facts Concerning Jobs at Progent

Staff Work for Network Engineers, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire staff-level, solutions-driven Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco accredited network engineers who have Cisco CCIE certification; security consultants who have CISSP or equivalent security certification; and high-end network architecture consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, workplace recovery, information preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring professionals to join our team of helpdesk support technicians and off-site support professionals. Also, Progent is seeking talented managers able to operate effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of skilled and motivated professionals, providing world-class client care, and offering a strong value-based fee structure, We have been able to expand our client list dramatically while providing professional support to hundreds of companies in Northern California and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared knowledge database, and a group strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied client base.

If you are an information technology consultant with technical support expertise, joining Progent or working for Progent's clients will enhance your skills through interaction with Progent's group of highly supportive, talented consultants. Our focus on delivering information technology consulting and technical help to small and midsize organizations will give you the chance to work closely with key players and contribute significantly to the growth of dynamic businesses.

Progent is looking for technical professionals who can show verifiable credentials related to their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco consultants, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security certifications. Naturally, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Still, simply because a credential does not guarantee excellence is no reason for not earning one. If you have mastered your field, then most of these certifications should be no challenge. The point is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers deserve to see credentials. We will market your skills, but you must have standard credentials for Progent to work with. If you stand strongly against the idea of credentials, Progent can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

Improve Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Working with the Top Group of Network Consultants

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a better consultant by improving your information technology skills and increasing the satisfaction of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the best professional experts for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, using specialized software utilities to deliver the highest level of service, and by streamlining proven operational models for attracting and maintaining clients.

The most important factor that distinguishes us from most consulting firms is the quality of our support professionals. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined us, we have assembled top expertise across a wide range of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other key application, we deploy professionals who can help you to be successful on major jobs by leveraging the collective experience of our team of professionals.

To ensure the success of our team, we invest heavily in providing the best tools to perform the work properly. We will leverage technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office environment allows seamless connectivity, collaboration, and information sharing with fellow Progent consultants — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit revenue with daily drives to a physical office building, and all driving you do for in-person customer jobs is determined by your own time table, not Progent's. The best benefit is that much of our support services can be done remotely, offering maximum productivity for billable time. In fact, some of our team members do off-site consulting only.

Our business structure is set up for responding quickly and effectively to customer requirements through information sharing and cooperative problem solving. Even though our engineers operate with a high level of freedom, dispatching is unified, client problems and resolutions are carefully monitored, documented, and archived for easy reference, up-to-date engineer availability is published to streamline team projects and simplify trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually monitored. We reinforce the feeling of connection through monthly workgroup conferences and quarterly corporate events.

Most of Progent's team is situated throughout California, however Progent is building a quickly growing group of network experts throughout America. Our virtual office environment does away with regional boundaries that restrict the productivity of traditional company structures. We complete the deal by offering a comprehensive benefit program to promote the health and financial welfare of our team members and their families.

Just as we have world-class consultants, Progent's marketing and operations teams match the high standards that characterizes Progent. These high-performance contributors to our growth are enabling us to identify and land the 50-60 new customers we are now acquiring each month. We lately marked the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also a strong marketing operation.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a key for growth with us. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a steady series of technical challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Customers choose consulting firms to do the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, advanced implementations, vexing or chronic issues, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for our services every day. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for computer engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every day enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by establishing strong customer relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused organization through and through. If you do not offer excellent people skills or enjoy working with a varied group of people, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor fit.

If this sounds good to you, we invite you to contact us about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
