Additional Facts Concerning Opportunities with Us

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

Progent is seeking to find staff-level, results-driven Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco certified system consultants with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security consultants with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security certification; and high-end system architecture consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, service continuity, disaster recovery, information preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also seeks professionals who can work on Progent's staff of helpdesk service specialists and remote troubleshooting experts. In addition, Progent is looking for talented managers able to operate effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of skilled and dedicated consultants, delivering attentive client services, and offering a competitive results-focused pricing structure, We have managed to expand our customer base rapidly while providing professional support to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared information base, and a group strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a loyal customer list.

If you are a network consultant with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or helping Progent's customers can expand your skills via cooperation with our group of mutually supportive, expert consultants. Progent's focus on delivering information technology consulting and technical support to small organizations will give you the opportunity to work closely with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the growth of dynamic businesses.

We are hiring consultants that have verifiable credentials related to their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco experts, show us your CCIE 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 top security certifications. Naturally, we are aware of "paper experts". Notwithstanding, the fact that a credential can not ensure excellence is no justification for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of those tests should be no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you are a professional, then customers expect certifications. We can market your talents, but you need to have standard certifications for Progent to work with. If you happen to be strongly opposed to the idea of credentials, we can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are probably not a good fit.

Joining the Top Group of Computer Consultants

Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the best professional experts for you to operate with, providing an advanced system architecture, running custom software tools to enable the maximum quality of support, and by streamlining proven business models for finding and retaining customers.

The most important factor that distinguishes Progent from typical network support companies is the excellence of our consultants. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined us, we have assembled top talent covering a broad array of technical areas. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux, server virtualization, or other vital areas, we deploy experts who can enable you to be successful on major projects by combining the aggregate skills of our group of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful tools to do the work efficiently. We will leverage information technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office environment allows seamless connectivity, collaboration, and information sharing with other Progent team members — all from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit income with regular drives to a conventional office, and all driving you do for on-site client work is based on your schedule, not ours. The best benefit is that much of Progent's support work can be performed remotely, offering 100% efficiency for income-producing hours. In practice, some Progent staff do off-site consulting exclusively.

Progent's business structure is set up for reacting rapidly and effectively to client needs through knowledge exchange and collaborative problem solving. Although Progent's consultants work with a high level of independence, dispatching is unified, customer issues and resolutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and archived for convenient reference, up-to-date engineer availability is broadcast to streamline team tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is always monitored. We reinforce the sense of cooperation through monthly workgroup conferences and quarterly corporate events.

The majority of our consultants are located throughout Northern California, however Progent is attracting a rapidly expanding team of consulting experts from across the U.S. Our virtual office environment does away with regional obstacles that limit the efficiency of conventional business models. We enhance the deal by providing a comprehensive benefit program to ensure the health and economic welfare of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consultants, our sales and operations teams live up to the high standards that defines Progent. These high-performance contributors to our growth are enabling us to identify and land the 50-60 new clients we are now engaging each month. We recently 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 marketing organization.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a continual series of technical challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Customers choose consultants to do the toughest jobs. Creative projects, leading-edge implementations, vexing or chronic problems, and difficult upgrades are the basis for our services daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for computer professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by establishing strong client relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization from top to bottom. If you don’t offer strong communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse assortment of personalities, then we are probably a poor match.

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