Details Concerning Jobs at Progent

Staff Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Service Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire staff-level, results-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco certified network consultants with CCIE certification; security consultants with CISM or equivalent security credentials; and advanced network architecture experts with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, service continuity, disaster recovery, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring employees who can join Progent's staff of help desk support specialists and off-site troubleshooting experts. In addition, Progent is seeking talented administrators able to operate effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of skilled and dedicated professionals, providing attentive customer care, and following a strong results-focused fee structure, We have been able to increase our customer base dramatically while delivering professional services to hundreds of companies in Northern California and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared knowledge database, and a group strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a talented staff and a satisfied client list.

If you are a network consultant with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's customers will expand your skills via cooperation with our staff of mutually team-oriented, talented consultants. Our commitment to providing information technology consulting and computer support to small and midsize companies will give you the chance to collaborate intimately with key players and contribute appreciably to the growth of dynamic businesses.

We are hiring technical professionals who can show verifiable certification in their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco consultants, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP credential. For network security, you should have you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or one of the other leading security certifications. Naturally, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, simply because a credential does not ensure expertise is no justification for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of these certifications should present no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers expect credentials. We will promote your talents, but you must have a baseline of credentials for Progent to work with. If you happen to be strongly against the idea of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are probably not a good fit.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Working with the Top Group of Network Consultants

Progent's company culture will make you a more capable consultant by enhancing your information technology knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the top professional experts for you to work with, offering an advanced network and communications infrastructure, running proprietary software utilities to enable the highest quality of support, and by streamlining our business models for finding and retaining clients.

The main factor that differentiates us from typical consulting firms is the high quality of our service staff. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have assembled the best talent across a broad range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other vital areas, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be successful on major jobs by combining the aggregate skills of Progent's group of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's team, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful technology to do the work properly. We will exploit information technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables seamless communications, collaboration, and information exchange with other Progent team members — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or lose revenue because of regular commutes to a conventional office building, and any driving you do for on-site client work is based on your schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that most of Progent's consulting work can be performed remotely, offering 100% productivity for income-producing hours. In fact, some Progent staff do remote consulting exclusively.

Progent's business structure is set up for reacting quickly and efficiently to client requirements through information exchange and cooperative problem solving. Although our consultants work with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is unified, customer issues and resolutions are carefully tracked, documented, and organized for convenient reference, up-to-date engineer schedules are published to streamline group tasks and enable problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is always monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation via monthly workgroup meetings and quarterly corporate events.

Most of Progent's consultants are located throughout Northern California, however Progent is building a quickly expanding group of consulting professionals from across America. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic boundaries that limit the efficiency of conventional business models. We complete the package by providing a comprehensive employee care plan to promote the health and financial security of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, Progent's sales and operations teams live up to the high standards that defines Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s growth are enabling us to identify and land the scores of new clients we are currently acquiring each month. Progent recently marked the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also a strong sales organization.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with us. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of network challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Clients choose consulting firms to do the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, advanced implementations, vexing or chronic problems, and difficult migrations are the basis for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for network professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by building strong customer contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you do not have strong communications skills or enjoy working with a varied assortment of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good fit.

If this sounds right for you, we urge you to talk to us about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.

Our Sophisticated Virtual Office Environment
