Additional Facts About Jobs at Progent

Staff Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent wants to hire full-time, solutions-driven Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited system consultants with Cisco CCIE or CCNP credentials; security consultants with CISA or comparable security certification; and high-end system design experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high uptime, business continuity, information protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for employees who can work on our staff of help desk support technicians and off-site support experts. Also, Progent is looking for talented managers who can operate effectively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and dedicated professionals, providing attentive client care, and following a strong results-based pricing structure, We have managed to expand our customer base rapidly while delivering professional services to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a common knowledge base, and a group approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a loyal client list.

If you are an information technology professional with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or working for Progent's customers can expand your skills via interaction with Progent's group of mutually supportive, expert engineers. Progent's commitment to providing information technology consulting and technical help to small organizations will give you the chance to work intimately with decision makers and add significantly to the growth of exciting companies.

We are hiring technical professionals who can show recognized credentials related to their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your MCSE credential. For Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should show you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security certifications. Of course, Progent is aware of "paper experts". Still, simply because a certificate does not ensure expertise is no reason for not owning one. If you know your field, then most of those certifications should present no challenge. The bottom line is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers expect credentials. We can broadcast your talents, but you must provide a baseline of credentials for us to work with. If you are strongly opposed to the concept of certifications, we can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

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

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a more capable professional by improving your technical skills and increasing the satisfaction of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the best professional talent for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, running specialized application utilities to deliver the maximum level of service, and by optimizing proven operational models for finding and keeping clients.

The most important factor that differentiates us from other network support companies is the quality of our service staff. Among the scores of consultants who have joined Progent, we have assembled top expertise covering a broad array of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other crucial technologies, we deploy experts who can help you to be successful on larger jobs by combining the aggregate skills of our group of professionals.

To promote the productivity of our consultants, we invest significantly in making available the best technology to perform the job efficiently. We will exploit information technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables seamless communications, cooperation, and information sharing with other Progent consultants — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue with regular drives to a physical office building, and all driving you do for on-site client jobs is determined by your own schedule, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that much of our consulting work can be done off-site, representing 100% efficiency for billable time. In practice, some Progent staff do off-site support exclusively.

Progent's business structure is set up for responding quickly and effectively to client requirements via knowledge sharing and cooperative problem solving. Even though our engineers work with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, customer problems and solutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and organized for convenient retrieval, up-to-date consultant availability is published to facilitate team projects and enable problem escalation, and customer approval is always monitored. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation through periodic team meetings and regular company-wide events.

Most of Progent's consultants are situated across California, but Progent is building a rapidly expanding team of network professionals from across America. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic obstacles that restrict the efficiency of traditional business structures. We complete the package by providing a comprehensive employee care plan to promote the physical health and financial welfare of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and operations groups live up to the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s growth are helping us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are now engaging every month. We lately celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective sales operation.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with us. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of network challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Clients rely on a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, leading-edge implementations, vexing or chronic issues, and difficult migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for computer engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every morning excited about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some great folks, both by establishing 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 Progent is a relationship-oriented organization through and through. If you don’t offer strong communications skills or like cooperating with a varied group of personalities, then Progent is probably a poor fit.

If all this seems right for you, we invite you to contact Progent about our view of the future of network consulting.
