Details Concerning Jobs at Progent

Staff Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent wants to find full-time, results-driven Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco accredited network engineers who have CCIE certification; security professionals with CISSP or equivalent security certification; and advanced network design experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high uptime, business continuity, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring professionals who can join our team of desktop support technicians and off-site troubleshooting experts. Also, Progent is looking for talented administrators who can operate effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of talented and motivated professionals, providing attentive client care, and offering a strong results-focused pricing structure, Progent has been able to increase our customer list dramatically while providing consulting services to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a common knowledge database, and a group strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a satisfied customer list.

For a network professional with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's customers can enhance your knowledge through cooperation with Progent's staff of mutually supportive, expert consultants. Progent's commitment to providing information technology consulting and technical support to small organizations will offer you the chance to work intimately with decision makers and contribute significantly to the success of dynamic businesses.

Progent is looking for technical professionals who can show verifiable certification in their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your MCSE credential. For Cisco experts, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security credentials. Of course, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, the fact that a certificate does not ensure excellence is no excuse for not having one. If you know your stuff, then most of those tests should be no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you are a professional, then clients expect certifications. We can broadcast your skills, but you need to provide basic certifications for Progent to market. If you are strongly against the idea of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Contract Work for Certified Application Specialists for
Windows, Mac, Linux/UNIX, and Sun Technology

For more than two decades, Progent's computer professionals have provided low-cost and effective computer consulting expertise for companies in Northern California and across the United States.

Enhance Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Working with a Great Group of Network Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a more capable consulting professional by enhancing your information technology knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this commitment by recruiting the best consulting experts for you to operate with, offering an advanced system architecture, using custom application utilities to enable the highest level of service, and by streamlining proven business structures for attracting and keeping clients.

The most important factor that separates us from other consulting firms is the quality of our support professionals. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited top expertise covering a wide array of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other vital areas, we engage professionals who can help you to be successful on larger projects by combining the collective experience of our group of professionals.

To ensure the success of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful technology to do the work properly. Progent will exploit information technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables effortless connectivity, collaboration, and information sharing with fellow Progent team members — all from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose revenue with regular drives to a conventional office building, and any driving you do for on-site client work is based on your schedule, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that much of Progent's consulting work can be performed remotely, offering 100% productivity for income-producing time. In practice, some Progent team members do off-site support exclusively.

Our business structure is set up for reacting rapidly and effectively to client needs through information exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Although our engineers operate with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is centralized, client problems and resolutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and archived for convenient retrieval, up-to-date engineer schedules are published to facilitate team projects and simplify problem escalation, and customer approval is always monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation via periodic team meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of our team is located throughout California, but we are attracting a quickly growing team of network experts from across the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic obstacles that restrict the efficiency of traditional business models. We enhance the package by providing a full benefit program to promote the health and financial welfare of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consultants, our marketing and administration teams live up to the high standards that defines Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s success are helping us to target and land the 50-60 new customers we are now engaging every month. Progent recently marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective sales organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of network challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Customers rely on consulting firms to do the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or entrenched issues, and difficult migrations are the basis for our services every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for network professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every day excited about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by building close client contacts and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused company through and through. If you do not offer strong communications skills or like working with a diverse assortment of people, then Progent is probably a poor match.

If this sounds right for you, we invite you to talk to us about our view of the new paradigm of network consulting.
