Details Concerning Opportunities with Us

Career Work for Network Consultants, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Technicians

Progent wants to find fulltime, results-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco accredited network consultants who have Cisco credentials; security consultants with CISA or comparable security certification; and advanced network design experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high uptime, business continuity, information preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for employees who can join Progent's team of desktop service technicians and off-site support experts. Also, We are hiring talented managers who can perform productively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of skilled and motivated consultants, delivering world-class client care, and following a strong results-focused pricing structure, Progent has managed to increase our client base dramatically while delivering professional services to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a common information base, and a group strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a loyal customer list.

If you are an information technology professional with technical support experience, joining Progent or helping Progent's customers will enhance your knowledge through interaction with our staff of mutually team-oriented, expert consultants. Our focus on delivering network expertise and technical help to small companies will give you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with key players and add appreciably to the success of dynamic businesses.

Progent is looking for technical professionals who can show recognized certification in their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other leading security certifications. Of course, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Still, simply because a certificate can not ensure expertise is no reason for not owning one. If you know your field, then most of these tests should pose no challenge. The point is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then clients deserve to see certifications. We can broadcast your skills, but you should have standard credentials for us to work with. In case you happen to be strongly opposed to the idea of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are likely not a good candidate.

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

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a more capable consulting professional by enhancing your information technology knowledge and boosting the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the best consulting experts for you to work with, providing an advanced system infrastructure, running proprietary software tools to deliver the highest level of service, and by optimizing proven business structures for attracting and maintaining customers.

The most important factor that separates us from most network support firms is the quality of our consulting team. Out of the scores of consultants who have joined us, we have assembled the best expertise covering a wide array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux, VMware, or other key technologies, we engage experts who can help you to be effective on major projects by combining the collective experience of our team of professionals.

To promote the success of our team, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful tools to perform the job properly. Progent will exploit information technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables effortless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent team members — all from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit income with regular commutes to a physical office, and any driving you do for on-site client jobs is determined by your own time table, not ours. The best benefit is that much of Progent's consulting services can be performed remotely, representing 100% productivity for income-producing hours. In practice, some Progent team members do remote support exclusively.

Our business structure is geared towards reacting quickly and effectively to client requirements via knowledge sharing and collaborative problem solving. Although our engineers work with a great deal of independence, dispatching is unified, customer problems and solutions are carefully monitored, documented, and archived for easy reference, up-to-date engineer availability is published to facilitate team tasks and simplify problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually monitored. We reinforce the sense of connection through periodic team conferences and regular company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's consultants are located across Northern California, however we are attracting a rapidly growing team of consulting professionals throughout America. Our virtual office environment does away with regional boundaries that limit the efficiency of traditional business models. We complete the package by offering a full employee care plan to promote the health and economic welfare of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and administration teams live up to the high standards that is Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s success are enabling us to target and sign up the scores of new clients we are currently engaging each month. Progent recently marked the providing of services to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of technical challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Clients choose consulting firms to do the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or chronic issues, and tricky migrations are the basis for what we do daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every day enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will meet some great people, both by establishing strong customer contacts and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization from top to bottom. If you don’t have strong people skills or like working with a varied assortment of people, then we are in all likelihood a poor fit.

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