More Information Concerning Opportunities at Progent

Fulltime Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, results-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco accredited network consultants with Cisco certification; security consultants with CISM or equivalent security credentials; and high-end network architecture experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high availability, business continuity, data preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for employees to work on our team of help desk support technicians and remote troubleshooting professionals. Also, We are looking for talented managers who can perform productively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and dedicated consultants, delivering attentive customer services, and offering a competitive results-focused fee model, We have been able to increase our customer base rapidly while delivering consulting support to numerous businesses in Northern California and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared information base, and a group strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a talented staff and a loyal client list.

If you are a network professional with troubleshooting experience, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's clients can expand your knowledge through cooperation with our staff of mutually team-oriented, expert engineers. Our focus on providing information technology consulting and computer help to small and midsize organizations will give you the chance to work intimately with key players and contribute significantly to the success of exciting businesses.

We are hiring technical professionals that can show verifiable certification in their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco experts, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security certifications. Of course, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, the fact that a credential can not guarantee excellence is no reason for not having one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of these tests should present no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you are an expert, then customers expect credentials. Progent will promote your skills, but you should have standard credentials for us to work with. In case you stand adamantly opposed to the idea of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Team of Computer Engineers

Progent's company culture will allow you to become a more capable consulting professional by improving your information technology knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the top consulting experts for you to operate with, offering an advanced system architecture, running specialized software tools to deliver the highest level of support, and by streamlining our business models for attracting and maintaining clients.

The decisive factor that separates us from typical network support firms is the high quality of our consultants. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined Progent, we have assembled the best talent covering a wide range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other vital technologies, we engage experts who can help you to be successful on major projects by combining the aggregate experience of our group of experts.

To ensure the success of our consultants, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful technology to perform the work efficiently. We will leverage technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables seamless communications, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit income with daily commutes to a physical office building, and any travel you do for on-site customer work is based on your own schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that much of our support services can be done remotely, representing 100% productivity for billable time. In practice, some Progent staff do off-site support only.

Progent's business structure is set up for responding quickly and effectively to customer needs through knowledge sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Even though Progent's engineers work with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, client problems and resolutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and archived for convenient reference, up-to-date engineer schedules are broadcast to streamline group projects and simplify trouble escalation, and client approval is always monitored. We reinforce the sense of connection via monthly team meetings and regular corporate events.

Most of Progent's team is situated across California, but Progent is attracting a quickly growing team of network professionals from across the U.S. Our virtual office environment does away with geographic boundaries that limit the productivity of traditional business structures. We enhance the deal by providing a comprehensive benefit program to ensure the health and economic welfare of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consulting professionals, our sales and operations groups live up to the excellence that defines Progent. These high-performance contributors to our growth are helping us to target and land the 50-60 new customers we are now acquiring every month. We lately marked the providing of services to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective sales organization.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a key for growth with us. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of network challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Customers choose a consultant to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, advanced deployments, puzzling or entrenched problems, and difficult migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for computer engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every day excited about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by building close customer relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization from top to bottom. If you do not offer excellent people skills or like working with a diverse assortment of people, then we are in all likelihood a poor match.

If this seems good to you, we urge you to talk to us about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
