Additional Facts About Opportunities at Progent

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

Progent is seeking to find staff-level, results-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco accredited system consultants with Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security consultants who have CISM or comparable security credentials; and advanced system design experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, disaster recovery, data preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring professionals to work on Progent's team of help desk support specialists and off-site support professionals. In addition, Progent is looking for talented administrators able to operate productively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of talented and dedicated professionals, providing attentive client care, and following a strong value-based pricing model, Progent has been able to increase our client list rapidly while providing professional services to numerous companies in Northern California and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common knowledge base, and a group approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a satisfied customer base.

For a network consultant with technical support expertise, joining Progent or working for our clients will expand your knowledge through interaction with our staff of highly team-oriented, talented consultants. Progent's focus on delivering information technology consulting and technical support to small and midsize companies will give you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with key players and contribute significantly to the growth of dynamic businesses.

Progent is hiring consultants that can show verifiable credentials in their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco consultants, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should show you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other leading security credentials. Naturally, Progent is aware of "paper experts". However, the fact that a credential can not ensure excellence is no justification for not having one. If you know your field, then most of these tests should be no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you call yourself an expert, then customers deserve to see certifications. Progent can market your talents, but you should have basic credentials for Progent to market. In case you are strongly against the concept of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Improve Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a more capable professional by improving your information technology skills and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the best consulting talent for you to operate with, offering an advanced network and communications architecture, running custom application utilities to enable the maximum quality of service, and by optimizing our business structures for finding and retaining clients.

The decisive factor that differentiates us from most consulting firms is the high caliber of our support professionals. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have recruited the best expertise across a wide array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Macintosh, Linux, VMware, or other key areas, we deploy experts who can enable you to be successful on larger projects by leveraging the aggregate experience of our group of professionals.

To promote the productivity of our team, we invest significantly in making available the best technology to do the work efficiently. We will leverage information technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows seamless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with other Progent team members — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or lose revenue with daily commutes to a physical office building, and all travel you do for in-person client jobs is based on your own schedule, not Progent's. The best benefit is that much of our support work can be performed remotely, representing maximum productivity for income-producing time. In practice, some Progent team members do remote consulting exclusively.

Our business structure is set up for responding rapidly and effectively to client requirements through information exchange and collaborative problem solving. Even though our consultants work with a high level of independence, resource allocation is centralized, customer problems and solutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and archived for convenient reference, up-to-date engineer schedules are broadcast to facilitate group tasks and enable problem escalation, and client approval is always evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of connection through periodic workgroup conferences and quarterly corporate events.

Most of our consultants are situated across Northern California, but we are building a quickly expanding group of consulting professionals from across America. Our virtual office environment does away with regional boundaries that limit the productivity of traditional company structures. We enhance the package by providing a comprehensive employee care program to promote the physical health and financial welfare of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consulting professionals, our sales and administration teams match the high standards that characterizes Progent. These top-notch factors behind our growth are helping us to target and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are currently engaging every month. Progent lately marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing organization.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a key for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of technical challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Customers choose a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, advanced implementations, puzzling or chronic issues, and tricky migrations are the foundation for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for network engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning excited about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will meet some great people, both by establishing close customer contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you do not offer strong people skills or like working with a varied assortment of personalities, then Progent is probably not a good fit.

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