Additional Facts About Jobs at Progent

Staff Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Support Professionals

Progent wants to hire fulltime, results-driven Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco certified network consultants who have Cisco credentials; security professionals who have CISA or equivalent security credentials; and advanced system design experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, fault tolerance, workplace recovery, data preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks employees who can work on Progent's staff of desktop support technicians and remote support professionals. Also, We are looking for talented administrators who can perform productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and dedicated professionals, providing attentive client care, and following a strong value-focused fee structure, We have been able to increase our client base rapidly while providing consulting services to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a shared knowledge base, and a team approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a talented staff and a loyal customer list.

If you are an information technology consultant with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's customers can enhance your skills through interaction with our staff of highly team-oriented, talented engineers. Our focus on providing network expertise and technical support to small organizations will offer you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with key players and contribute significantly to the growth of dynamic companies.

We are hiring consultants that can show verifiable certification in their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco professionals, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security certifications. Naturally, we are aware of "paper experts". Notwithstanding, simply because a credential does not ensure excellence is no justification for not earning one. If you know your field, then most of those tests should pose no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then clients expect certifications. Progent will promote your talents, but you must provide standard certifications for us to work with. If you are adamantly opposed to the idea of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Enhance Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Working with a Great Team of Network Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a better consulting professional by enhancing your technical knowledge and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the top consulting talent for you to operate with, offering an advanced network and communications infrastructure, using proprietary application tools to enable the highest quality of service, and by optimizing proven business structures for attracting and maintaining customers.

The decisive factor that distinguishes us from ordinary consulting companies is the high caliber of our consulting team. Among the 50 or so consultants who have joined us, we have recruited top talent across a wide range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other key technologies, we deploy experts who can help you to be successful on larger jobs by combining the collective skills of our team of experts.

To promote the productivity of our consultants, we invest heavily in providing the best technology to perform the job properly. We will exploit technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure allows effortless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of daily drives to a physical office building, and any travel you do for on-site customer jobs is determined by your time table, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that much of Progent's support work can be done remotely, representing 100% productivity for income-producing hours. In fact, some of our staff do remote support exclusively.

Progent's operations are geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to customer requirements via information exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Although Progent's consultants operate with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, client issues and resolutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and organized for easy retrieval, current engineer availability is published to facilitate group tasks and simplify problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually monitored. We reinforce the sense of cooperation via periodic workgroup meetings and regular company-wide events.

The majority of our consultants are situated across Northern California, but we are attracting a quickly expanding group of network experts throughout America. Progent's virtual office environment does away with geographic obstacles that limit the efficiency of traditional business models. We enhance the package by offering a comprehensive employee care program to ensure the health and economic security of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, our marketing and operations teams live up to the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s growth are helping us to target and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are currently acquiring every month. We lately marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a steady series of technical challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Customers choose a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, leading-edge implementations, vexing or entrenched issues, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for what we do every day. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for computer professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by building strong customer contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization through and through. If you do not offer strong communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied assortment of people, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good fit.

If this sounds good to you, we invite you to talk to Progent about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
