Additional Facts About Opportunities at Progent

Fulltime Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent wants to hire full-time, results-driven Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco certified network consultants who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security professionals who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security certification; and high-end network architecture consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, service continuity, workplace recovery, information protection, and virtual servers.

Progent is looking for technical professionals that can show recognized credentials in their technical expertise.

For security, you should have you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other leading security credentials. Of course, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Still, the fact that a certificate can not ensure expertise is no justification for not having one. If you have mastered your field, then most of these certifications should pose no challenge. The point is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then customers expect credentials. We can promote your talents, but you should provide basic credentials for Progent to market. In case you stand adamantly against the concept of credentials, Progent can understand and respect your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Joining the Top Team of Network Consultants

Progent's productive atmosphere will allow you to become a more capable consultant by improving your technical skills and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the best professional talent for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, running specialized software tools to deliver the maximum quality of service, and by streamlining our operational models for finding and keeping clients.

The main factor that differentiates us from typical network support firms is the high quality of our service staff. Among the 50 or so consultants who have joined Progent, we have recruited top expertise across a wide array of technical areas. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Apple, Linux, virtual servers, or other vital application, we deploy experts who can enable you to be successful on larger jobs by leveraging the aggregate experience of our group of experts.

To ensure the success of our team, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful technology to do the job properly. We will exploit technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables seamless communications, collaboration, and information sharing with fellow Progent team members — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit income with daily drives to a conventional office, and any travel you do for on-site customer work is based on your own schedule, not ours. The best benefit is that much of our support work can be performed off-site, representing 100% efficiency for income-producing time. In practice, some of our staff do off-site consulting exclusively.

Our business structure is geared towards reacting quickly and effectively to client needs through knowledge sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Although our engineers work with a high level of freedom, dispatching is centralized, client issues and solutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and archived for convenient reference, up-to-date consultant schedules are broadcast to streamline group tasks and enable trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is continually evaluated. We reinforce the sense of cooperation via periodic team conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's team is located throughout Northern California, but we are attracting a quickly growing team of consulting professionals throughout the U.S. Our virtual office environment does away with geographic boundaries that restrict the efficiency of traditional business structures. We complete the package by providing a full employee care plan to ensure the physical health and financial security of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consulting professionals, our sales and operations groups live up to the high standards that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s growth are enabling us to identify and land the 50-60 new customers we are now engaging each month. Progent lately celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales organization.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of network challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Customers choose a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, leading-edge deployments, vexing or entrenched problems, 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 professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by building strong customer relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused company heart and soul. If you don’t offer strong communications skills or enjoy working with a diverse group of personalities, then Progent is probably a poor fit.

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