Details Concerning Work at Progent

Fulltime Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent wants to find full-time, results-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco certified network consultants who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security consultants who have CISA or comparable security credentials; and advanced system architecture experts with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, service continuity, workplace recovery, information protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for employees who can work on our staff of helpdesk service specialists and remote troubleshooting professionals. In addition, Progent is seeking experienced administrators able to operate productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and dedicated professionals, providing attentive customer care, and offering a competitive results-based fee model, We have managed to increase our customer list rapidly while providing professional support to numerous companies in Northern California and across the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a common knowledge base, and a group strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a loyal customer list.

If you are a network professional with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's clients will enhance your skills via cooperation with our staff of highly supportive, expert engineers. Our commitment to providing network expertise and technical help to small and midsize organizations will give you the chance to work intimately with decision makers and contribute significantly to the success of dynamic businesses.

Progent is looking for consultants that have verifiable credentials related to their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE certificate. For Cisco professionals, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should have you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security certifications. Naturally, Progent is aware of "paper experts". Notwithstanding, the fact that a credential does not guarantee expertise is no justification for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of those tests should be no challenge. The bottom line is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then clients deserve to see credentials. Progent will broadcast your skills, but you must have basic certifications for us to work with. In case you stand adamantly against the idea of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Improve Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's productive atmosphere will allow you to become a more capable consulting professional by enhancing your information technology skills and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent makes good on this commitment by recruiting the best professional experts for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art system architecture, running custom software tools to enable the highest level of support, and by optimizing proven business structures for finding and keeping clients.

The decisive factor that distinguishes Progent from ordinary network support firms is the quality of our service staff. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined us, we have assembled top expertise covering a broad range of technologies. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Mac, Linux, VMware, or other key areas, we deploy experts who can help you to be successful on larger jobs by combining the aggregate experience of Progent's team of professionals.

To ensure the success of our consultants, we invest significantly in providing the best tools to do the work properly. We will exploit information technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables seamless communications, cooperation, and information exchange with other Progent consultants — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or lose revenue with regular commutes to a conventional office, and all driving you do for on-site customer work is determined by your schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that much of our consulting services can be performed off-site, offering 100% productivity for billable time. In fact, some Progent team members do remote consulting exclusively.

Our operations are set up for responding rapidly and efficiently to customer needs via information sharing and collaborative problem solving. Even though our engineers work with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is centralized, client problems and resolutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and organized for easy retrieval, up-to-date consultant schedules are broadcast to facilitate group projects and simplify trouble escalation, and customer approval is always monitored. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation through monthly team meetings and quarterly corporate events.

The majority of our team is situated across California, but Progent is attracting a rapidly expanding team of network professionals from across the U.S. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional boundaries that restrict the productivity of traditional company structures. We enhance the package by offering a full employee care program to promote the health and economic welfare of our team members and their families.

Just as we have awesome consultants, Progent's marketing and operations groups live up to the high standards that defines Progent. These high-performance contributors to our success are helping us to target and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are currently engaging every month. Progent lately marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective marketing operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with us. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a steady series of technical challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Clients rely on consulting firms to do the toughest jobs. Creative projects, leading-edge implementations, vexing or chronic problems, and difficult migrations are the foundation for what we do daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for network professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by building close customer contacts and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused company through and through. If you don’t offer excellent communications skills or like cooperating with a varied group of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good fit.

If this seems good to you, we urge you to contact Progent about our vision of the future of network consulting.

Get Lifestyle Benefits and Technical Success with
Progent's Sophisticated Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent believes that a carefully designed and implemented network is a crucial factor for enabling a firm's growth, and Progent applies this credo in our own system environment.
