Additional Facts About Jobs at Progent

Staff Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire staff-level, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP certification; Cisco accredited system engineers who have Cisco CCIE certification; security professionals who have CISM or comparable security credentials; and high-end network architecture consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high uptime, disaster recovery, data protection, and VMware. Progent also is hiring employees to join Progent's team of help desk service specialists and remote troubleshooting experts. In addition, We are seeking talented managers who can operate effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and motivated professionals, providing world-class client care, and following a competitive value-focused fee structure, We have been able to expand our client base dramatically while providing consulting services to numerous companies in Northern California and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a common information base, and a group strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a loyal customer list.

For a network professional with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or working for our clients will enhance your skills through cooperation with Progent's staff of highly team-oriented, expert consultants. Our focus on delivering information technology consulting and technical help to small and midsize organizations will give you the chance to collaborate closely with key players and add appreciably to the success of dynamic companies.

Progent is hiring consultants that can show recognized credentials in their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. For Cisco professionals, have your CCIE or CCNP credential. For security, you should have you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other leading security credentials. Naturally, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” However, the fact that a credential can not ensure expertise is no justification for not owning one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of these tests should pose no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself an expert, then customers deserve to see certifications. Progent will market your skills, but you must provide a baseline of certifications for Progent to work with. In case you stand adamantly opposed to the idea of certifications, Progent can understand and respect your position, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Enhance Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Team of Network Engineers

Progent's work environment will make you a better professional by enhancing your information technology skills and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the best consulting talent for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, using proprietary software utilities to enable the highest quality of support, and by optimizing our business structures for attracting and keeping clients.

Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Apple, Linux, virtual servers, or other key technologies, we engage experts who can help you to be effective on larger projects by leveraging the aggregate skills of our team of professionals.

To ensure the success of our team, we invest significantly in providing the best technology to perform the work efficiently. We will exploit information technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows seamless communications, cooperation, and information exchange with fellow Progent consultants — all from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose income because of regular commutes to a physical office building, and all driving you do for in-person customer work is based on your schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that much of our consulting services can be performed off-site, representing maximum efficiency for income-producing hours. In practice, some Progent team members do remote consulting exclusively.

Progent's business structure is set up for responding rapidly and efficiently to client requirements through knowledge exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Although Progent's engineers work with a great deal of independence, dispatching is centralized, client problems and solutions are carefully monitored, documented, and organized for convenient retrieval, current consultant availability is broadcast to streamline team tasks and enable problem escalation, and customer approval is always evaluated. We strengthen the sense of cooperation through periodic workgroup conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of Progent's consultants are located throughout California, but we are building a quickly expanding team of network professionals throughout America. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic obstacles that limit the productivity of traditional company structures. We complete the deal by offering a comprehensive employee care program to ensure the health and financial welfare of our employees and their families.

Just as we have world-class consultants, our marketing and administration groups match the excellence that is Progent. These top-notch factors behind our growth are helping us to target and land the scores of new clients we are now engaging every month. We lately marked the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing operation.

Having a commitment to 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 network technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of technical challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Clients rely on consultants to do the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, advanced implementations, puzzling or chronic issues, and difficult migrations are the foundation for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for computer engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some great people, both by establishing strong customer relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization heart and soul. If you don’t offer excellent communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse group of personalities, then we are probably not a good match.

If all this sounds right for you, we urge you to talk to us about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
