Additional Facts About Work at Progent

Staff Work for Network Engineers, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent wants to hire staff-level, results-driven Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco certified system engineers with Cisco CCIE certification; security consultants who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security credentials; and advanced system architecture consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, service continuity, workplace recovery, information protection, and VMware. Progent also seeks employees to join our staff of desktop service technicians and remote troubleshooting experts. Also, Progent is hiring experienced administrators able to operate productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of talented and dedicated professionals, providing world-class client services, and following a strong results-focused fee structure, We have been able to expand our customer list rapidly while delivering consulting support to numerous businesses in Northern California and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared knowledge base, and a team approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a loyal client base.

For a network professional with technical support experience, joining Progent or working for our clients will enhance your knowledge via cooperation with our staff of highly supportive, talented engineers. Progent's focus on providing network consulting and computer support to small and midsize companies will give you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with key players and add significantly to the growth of exciting businesses.

We are hiring consultants that can show verifiable credentials related to their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or one of the other top security credentials. Of course, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” However, the fact that a credential does not ensure excellence is no justification for not having one. If you know your field, then the majority of those tests should pose no challenge. The bottom line is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then customers expect certifications. We can market your talents, but you should have standard credentials for us to work with. If you are adamantly opposed to the concept of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Improve Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Working with the Top Group of Network Consultants

Progent's company culture will make you a better consulting professional by improving your information technology knowledge and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this commitment by recruiting the top professional experts for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art system architecture, running custom application utilities to enable the highest quality of service, and by optimizing our business structures for attracting and retaining clients.

The main factor that separates us from other network support companies is the excellence of our consulting team. Out of the scores of consultants who have joined us, we have assembled top talent across a broad array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux, VMware, or other crucial application, we engage experts who can help you to be effective on major projects by leveraging the collective experience of our group of experts.

To promote the success of our team, we invest heavily in making available the best technology to perform the work properly. We will exploit technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows seamless communications, collaboration, and information sharing with fellow Progent consultants — all from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose income because of regular commutes to a conventional office building, and all travel you do for in-person client work is determined by your own schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that much of Progent's support services can be performed off-site, representing 100% efficiency for income-producing time. In fact, some Progent staff do off-site support exclusively.

Progent's business structure is geared towards reacting quickly and effectively to customer needs through information exchange and collaborative problem solving. Even though our consultants work with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is unified, customer problems and resolutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and archived for easy retrieval, current consultant schedules are broadcast to streamline team tasks and simplify problem escalation, and customer approval is continually evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of connection through periodic workgroup conferences and regular corporate events.

Most of Progent's team is situated across Northern California, however Progent is attracting a quickly expanding group of network experts throughout the United States. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with regional obstacles that restrict the efficiency of traditional business structures. We enhance the deal by offering a full employee care plan to promote the physical health and financial security of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and operations teams match the high standards that defines Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s growth are enabling us to target and land the 50-60 new clients we are now engaging every month. Progent recently celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also a strong sales organization.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with us. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a continual series of technical challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Clients rely on consultants to do the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, advanced deployments, vexing or chronic problems, and tricky migrations are the foundation for what we do daily. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for network professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every day excited about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some great folks, both by building close customer relationships and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused organization through and through. If you do not have excellent communications skills or like working with a diverse assortment of people, then we are probably not a good fit.

If all this sounds right for you, we invite you to talk to Progent about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.

Enjoy Quality of Life Benefits and Technical Success with
Progent's Sophisticated Virtual Office Environment

Progent is convinced that a well architected and executed network is a crucial factor for accelerating a company's growth, and Progent applies this philosophy in our corporate system environment.
