Additional Facts Concerning Jobs with Us

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

Progent wants to find staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco accredited network engineers with CCIE credentials; security consultants with CISM or equivalent security certification; and advanced network architecture consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high uptime, disaster recovery, information preservation, and virtual servers.

Our focus on providing network consulting and computer help to small organizations will give you the chance to collaborate closely with key players and contribute appreciably to the growth of exciting businesses.

Progent is looking for consultants that have verifiable certification in their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your MCSE credential. For Cisco experts, have your CCIE or CCNP credential. For security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security credentials. Naturally, we are familiar with "paper experts". Notwithstanding, simply because a credential can not ensure expertise is no excuse for not earning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of those certifications should be no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then customers deserve to see credentials. Progent can market your skills, but you must provide standard credentials for us to work with. In case you happen to be adamantly against the idea of credentials, we can understand and honor your opinion, but you are likely not a good fit.

Progent's productive atmosphere will allow you to become a better professional by improving your technical knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the best consulting experts for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art system architecture, using specialized application utilities to enable the highest quality of service, and by streamlining our business models for finding and retaining clients.

The main factor that differentiates Progent from typical network support firms is the excellence of our service staff. Out of the scores of consultants who have joined us, we have recruited top expertise covering a broad range of technologies. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux, server virtualization, or other vital areas, we deploy professionals who can help you to be effective on major projects by combining the aggregate skills of Progent's team of experts.

To promote the success of our team, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful tools to perform the work properly. We will leverage technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office environment allows seamless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent team members — all from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit revenue with daily commutes to a conventional office building, and any travel you do for on-site client work is based on your time table, not Progent's. The best part is that much of Progent's consulting work can be done off-site, representing maximum productivity for billable time. In fact, some Progent team members do off-site support exclusively.

Progent's operations are geared towards responding quickly and efficiently to client needs through knowledge exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Even though Progent's engineers operate with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is centralized, customer issues and resolutions are carefully tracked, documented, and organized for convenient retrieval, current consultant availability is broadcast to streamline group projects and enable problem escalation, and customer approval is continually evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation through monthly team meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of our team is located throughout California, however Progent is building a quickly growing group of consulting experts from across the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional boundaries that restrict the efficiency of traditional business models. We enhance the deal by offering a full employee care plan to promote the physical health and financial welfare of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, our marketing and administration teams match the excellence that defines Progent. These top-notch factors behind our growth are enabling us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are now engaging every month. Progent recently marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective sales organization.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a key 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 steady stream of technical challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Customers choose a consultant to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or entrenched issues, and tricky upgrades are the basis for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for network engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every day excited about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some great people, both by establishing close client contacts and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented organization from top to bottom. If you don’t offer strong people skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse group of people, then Progent is probably not a good match.

If all this sounds good to you, we invite you to talk to Progent about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
