Additional Facts About Opportunities with Us

Staff Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Professionals

Progent wants to hire full-time, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco accredited network consultants who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security consultants who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security credentials; and high-end network design experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high uptime, workplace recovery, information protection, and VMware. Progent also is looking for professionals to work on our staff of desktop support specialists and remote support experts. In addition, Progent is seeking talented managers able to operate productively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of skilled and dedicated consultants, providing world-class client care, and following a competitive value-based fee model, Progent has been able to increase our client base dramatically while providing consulting services to hundreds of companies in Northern California and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common knowledge database, and a team strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a loyal customer base.

For an information technology consultant with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's customers can enhance your knowledge via cooperation with our group of highly supportive, expert engineers. Progent's commitment to delivering information technology consulting and technical support to small companies will offer you the opportunity to work closely with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the success of exciting companies.

We are looking for technical professionals who can show verifiable certification in their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your Microsoft MCSE certificate. For Cisco consultants, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP credential. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” However, simply because a certificate does not guarantee expertise is no excuse for not earning one. If you know your field, then most of these tests should pose no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers deserve to see certifications. We can market your talents, but you should have a baseline of certifications for Progent to work with. In case you stand strongly opposed to the idea of credentials, we can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

To promote the success of our team, we invest significantly in making available the best technology to do the work properly. Progent will leverage information technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office environment enables seamless communications, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent team members — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit income because of regular commutes to a conventional office building, and all driving you do for on-site client work is based on your schedule, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that much of our consulting work can be done remotely, offering 100% productivity for billable hours. In fact, some of our team members do off-site consulting exclusively.

Our business structure is set up for reacting rapidly and effectively to client requirements via knowledge exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Even though our consultants operate with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is centralized, customer issues and solutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and organized for easy reference, current engineer availability is published to facilitate group projects and enable trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is always monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation through monthly team meetings and regular corporate events.

Most of our consultants are situated across Northern California, however Progent is building a quickly growing group of consulting experts from across America. Progent's virtual office environment does away with regional obstacles that limit the productivity of traditional business structures. We complete the deal by offering a comprehensive employee care plan to ensure the physical health and financial welfare of our team members and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and administration groups live up to the high standards that defines Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s success are enabling us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are currently engaging each month. We recently celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales organization.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with us. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of technical challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Clients rely on consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, advanced implementations, puzzling or chronic issues, and tricky upgrades are the basis for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for network professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every morning excited about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will meet some great folks, both by establishing strong customer relationships and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you do not offer strong communications skills or like working with a varied assortment of people, then we are in all likelihood a poor match.

If this seems right for you, we invite you to contact us about our view of the new paradigm of network consulting.
