Additional Facts About Jobs at Progent

Fulltime Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent wants to hire full-time, results-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco accredited system engineers with CCIE certification; security consultants who have CISM or comparable security certification; and high-end system architecture consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, service continuity, workplace recovery, information protection, and VMware. Progent also is looking for professionals who can join Progent's staff of helpdesk service specialists and off-site troubleshooting professionals. Also, Progent is hiring experienced administrators able to operate effectively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of talented and dedicated consultants, delivering attentive client services, and following a competitive value-focused pricing structure, Progent has managed to expand our customer list rapidly while providing professional services to numerous companies in Northern California and across the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a common information database, and a group approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a loyal client list.

If you are a network professional with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or helping Progent's clients can expand your knowledge through interaction with our staff of mutually supportive, expert engineers. Our focus on delivering information technology expertise and computer support to small companies will offer you the chance to collaborate intimately with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the success of exciting businesses.

We are looking for technical professionals that can show recognized certification related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your MCSE certificate. For Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or CCNP credential. For security, you should show you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security credentials. Of course, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” However, the fact that a certificate can not ensure expertise is no excuse for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then most of those certifications should be no great difficulty. The point is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then customers expect credentials. Progent can market your skills, but you should provide basic credentials for us to work with. If you stand adamantly opposed to the concept of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Windows, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, and Sun Technology

Enhance Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Network Consultants

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a more capable consulting professional by improving your technical skills and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this commitment by recruiting the top professional experts for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, running custom software utilities to deliver the maximum level of service, and by streamlining our business structures for attracting and maintaining customers.

The most important factor that separates us from typical consulting companies is the quality of our consultants. Among the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have assembled the best talent covering a wide range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other key technologies, we deploy experts who can help you to be effective on major projects by leveraging the aggregate skills of our team of experts.

To promote the success of Progent's team, we invest heavily in providing the best technology to do the job efficiently. Progent will leverage technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure allows effortless communications, cooperation, and information sharing with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or lose revenue with regular drives to a physical office building, and all driving you do for on-site customer jobs is determined by your own time table, not ours. The best part is that much of Progent's consulting services can be done off-site, representing 100% productivity for income-producing hours. In practice, some Progent team members do remote consulting exclusively.

Progent's operations are geared towards responding quickly and effectively to customer requirements through information sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Although our consultants operate with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is centralized, client problems and solutions are carefully tracked, documented, and organized for easy retrieval, current engineer availability is broadcast to streamline group projects and simplify problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of connection through periodic team conferences and regular corporate events.

Most of our team is situated throughout California, however we are attracting a quickly expanding group of network experts from across the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with regional boundaries that limit the efficiency of traditional business models. We enhance the deal by offering a full employee care program to promote the physical health and financial welfare of our team members and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, our marketing and administration teams live up to the high standards that characterizes Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s growth are enabling us to target and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are now engaging every month. Progent lately celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also a strong marketing organization.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with us. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a continual series of technical challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Customers rely on consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, advanced implementations, puzzling or entrenched issues, and tricky migrations are the foundation for what we do daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for network engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every day excited about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by building strong customer contacts and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you do not have strong people skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse group of people, then Progent is probably a poor match.

If this seems right for you, we urge you to talk to Progent about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.

Enjoy Lifestyle Benefits and Professional Success with
Our Sophisticated Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent believes that a well architected and executed information system can be a pivotal factor for accelerating any firm's growth, and we follow this credo in our own network infrastructure.
