Additional Facts Concerning Work at Progent

Fulltime Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Technicians

Progent wants to hire fulltime, results-driven Microsoft certified engineers with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco certified system engineers with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security professionals with CISSP or comparable security credentials; and high-end system design consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high availability, disaster recovery, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for employees to work on our team of desktop service technicians and remote troubleshooting experts. In addition, We are looking for experienced managers able to perform effectively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and dedicated consultants, delivering world-class customer services, and offering a competitive value-focused fee structure, We have been able to expand our customer list rapidly while delivering professional support to numerous companies in Northern California and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a common knowledge base, and a team approach to problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a satisfied client base.

For an information technology professional with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's customers will expand your skills via cooperation with our group of highly supportive, talented consultants. Progent's focus on providing network expertise and computer support to small companies will offer you the chance to collaborate intimately with key players and add significantly to the growth of exciting companies.

Progent is hiring consultants that can show verifiable certification in their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or CCNP credential. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or other top security credentials. Of course, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Still, simply because a certificate can not guarantee excellence is no excuse for not earning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of these tests should be no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients deserve to see certifications. We can market your skills, but you need to have standard certifications for Progent to market. In case you are strongly against the concept of credentials, we can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Team of Computer Engineers

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a more capable consulting professional by improving your information technology knowledge and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the best professional experts for you to work with, providing an advanced system architecture, running specialized application tools to deliver the highest quality of support, and by streamlining proven business structures for finding and maintaining clients.

The main factor that separates Progent from other network support companies is the quality of our consulting team. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled top expertise across a broad array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Mac, Linux, VMware, or other key areas, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be successful on larger projects by leveraging the aggregate experience of our group of experts.

To promote the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful tools to perform the work properly. We will leverage information technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure allows seamless connectivity, cooperation, and information sharing with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue with regular commutes to a physical office, and all travel you do for on-site client jobs is based on your own schedule, not Progent's. The best part is that much of Progent's consulting services can be performed remotely, offering maximum productivity for income-producing hours. In fact, some Progent team members do remote consulting only.

Our operations are set up for reacting rapidly and efficiently to client needs via knowledge sharing and collaborative problem solving. Although our engineers work with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is centralized, client problems and solutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and organized for convenient reference, up-to-date engineer schedules are published to facilitate group projects and enable trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is always evaluated. We strengthen the sense of connection through periodic workgroup meetings and regular company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's consultants are situated across California, but we are attracting a quickly expanding team of consulting experts from across the United States. Progent's virtual office environment eliminates geographic boundaries that restrict the productivity of traditional company structures. We complete the deal by providing a full benefit plan to ensure the physical health and economic welfare of our employees and their families.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, our sales and administration teams live up to the excellence that characterizes Progent. These top-notch factors behind our growth are enabling us to identify and sign up the scores of new customers we are now engaging each month. Progent recently marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective sales operation.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of technical challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Customers rely on consultants to do the toughest jobs. Creative projects, advanced implementations, vexing or chronic issues, and tricky migrations are the basis for our services daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for computer engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every day enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will work with some great folks, both by building close client contacts and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented company from top to bottom. If you don’t have excellent people skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse group of personalities, then Progent is probably a poor match.

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