Details Concerning Opportunities with Us

Staff Work for Network Engineers, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, results-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco certified system engineers who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security consultants who have CISM or equivalent security credentials; and high-end network design consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, service continuity, business continuity, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks employees who can work on our team of help desk service specialists and remote support professionals. Also, Progent is looking for talented managers able to perform productively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of skilled and dedicated professionals, providing attentive client services, and offering a competitive results-focused pricing model, Progent has been able to increase our customer base dramatically while providing professional services to numerous companies in Northern California and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a common information database, and a group strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a satisfied client list.

If you are an information technology professional with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or working for Progent's customers can expand your skills through interaction with Progent's staff of highly team-oriented, expert engineers. Progent's commitment to providing network expertise and technical support to small and midsize organizations will give you the opportunity to collaborate closely with key players and contribute appreciably to the success of dynamic businesses.

We are looking for consultants who can show recognized certification related to their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE certificate. For Cisco consultants, 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, CISA, CISM, or other leading security certifications. Naturally, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” However, simply because a certificate can not guarantee excellence is no reason for not owning one. If you know your field, then the majority of those tests should present no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then clients expect credentials. We will market your talents, but you must provide a baseline of credentials for us to work with. In case you happen to be strongly opposed to the concept of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are probably not a good fit.

Improve Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Working with a Great Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's company culture will make you a better professional by enhancing your technical knowledge and boosting the satisfaction 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 infrastructure, running custom software utilities to enable the maximum level of service, and by streamlining our operational models for attracting and retaining customers.

The main factor that distinguishes Progent from most network support companies is the quality of our service staff. Among the 50 or so consultants who have joined us, we have recruited the best expertise covering a broad range of technologies. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other crucial application, we deploy experts who can help you to be effective on larger jobs by combining the aggregate experience of our group of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of our team, we invest heavily in providing the best technology to do the work properly. Progent will exploit technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure allows seamless communications, collaboration, and information exchange with other Progent consultants — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit income because of daily commutes to a physical office, and any travel you do for in-person client work is determined by your schedule, not ours. The most attractive part is that much of Progent's consulting services can be performed off-site, representing maximum productivity for billable time. In fact, some of our team members do off-site support exclusively.

Our business structure is geared towards responding rapidly and efficiently to client requirements via information sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Even though Progent's consultants operate with a great deal of independence, dispatching is unified, customer problems and solutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and archived for easy reference, current consultant availability is published to facilitate team projects and simplify problem escalation, and client satisfaction is always evaluated. We reinforce the sense of cooperation via monthly team meetings and regular corporate events.

Most of our consultants are located throughout Northern California, but Progent is building a quickly expanding team of consulting experts from across the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional boundaries that limit the efficiency of traditional company structures. We enhance the deal by offering a comprehensive employee care plan to ensure the physical health and economic security of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, Progent's sales and operations groups match the high standards that defines Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s success are helping us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are currently engaging each month. We recently celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective sales organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a key for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of technical challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Customers choose consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, advanced implementations, vexing or chronic issues, and difficult upgrades are the basis for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for network engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every day excited about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will meet some great people, both by building strong customer relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused company through and through. If you don’t offer excellent people skills or enjoy working with a varied assortment of people, then Progent is probably a poor fit.

If all this seems good to you, we invite you to contact Progent about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.
