More Information Concerning Jobs at Progent

Fulltime Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco accredited network consultants who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security consultants with CISA or equivalent security certification; and advanced system architecture consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, service continuity, workplace recovery, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring professionals to work on our team of help desk service specialists and remote support experts. Also, Progent is looking for experienced managers who can operate effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of talented and motivated professionals, delivering world-class client services, and offering a strong results-based pricing model, We have managed to increase our customer list rapidly while providing 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 strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied customer list.

If you are an information technology professional with troubleshooting experience, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's clients can enhance your skills through interaction with Progent's group of highly supportive, expert engineers. Progent's focus on delivering network expertise and computer support to small and midsize companies will give you the opportunity to work intimately with key players and contribute significantly to the success of dynamic companies.

Progent is looking for consultants that can show verifiable credentials in their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your Microsoft MCSE certificate. For Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other leading security certifications. Of course, we are familiar with "paper experts". Still, simply because a certificate does not guarantee excellence is no reason for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then most of these tests should be no challenge. The bottom line is that if you call yourself an expert, then customers deserve to see certifications. We will market your skills, but you should have a baseline of credentials for Progent to market. In case you stand adamantly opposed to the concept of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are likely not a good fit.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Network Engineers

Progent's company culture will make you a better consulting professional by enhancing your technical knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the best professional experts for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art system architecture, using specialized software utilities to enable the highest quality of support, and by optimizing proven business models for finding and maintaining customers.

The most important factor that separates Progent from other consulting firms is the high caliber of our service staff. Among the scores of consulting experts who have joined us, we have assembled the best expertise covering a broad range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other key application, we deploy experts who can help you to be successful on larger projects by combining the aggregate skills of Progent's group of experts.

To promote the success of our team, we invest significantly in making available the best tools to do the work efficiently. Progent will exploit technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables seamless communications, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent team members — all from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit revenue with daily drives to a conventional office building, and any driving you do for in-person client work is based on your own schedule, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that much of Progent's consulting work can be done remotely, representing maximum productivity for income-producing hours. In fact, some Progent staff do remote consulting only.

Progent's operations are geared towards responding quickly and effectively to customer requirements via information sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Even though Progent's consultants operate with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is unified, customer issues and resolutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and organized for easy retrieval, up-to-date consultant schedules are broadcast to facilitate group projects and enable problem escalation, and customer approval is continually monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation through monthly workgroup meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of our team is situated throughout California, but we are building a rapidly growing team of consulting professionals throughout the U.S. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic obstacles that limit the productivity of conventional company structures. We enhance the package by providing a comprehensive benefit plan to ensure the physical health and financial security of our team members and their families.

Just as we have world-class consultants, our marketing and operations groups match the high standards that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s success are helping us to target and sign up the scores of new clients we are now acquiring every month. We 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 marketing organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a key for growth with us. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a continual series of network challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Clients rely on consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or chronic problems, and difficult migrations are the basis for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for computer engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning excited about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by establishing close customer relationships and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented company from top to bottom. If you do not offer strong communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse group of personalities, then we are probably a poor match.

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.

Get Quality of Life Improvements and Technical Success with
Our Sophisticated Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent is convinced that a well architected and executed information system can be a pivotal piece for enabling a firm's success, and Progent follows this belief in our corporate network environment.
