Additional Facts Concerning Opportunities at Progent

Fulltime Jobs for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, results-driven Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco accredited network engineers who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security professionals with CISM or equivalent security credentials; and high-end network architecture experts with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, high uptime, business continuity, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for professionals to join Progent's team of desktop service technicians and remote support professionals. In addition, We are looking for experienced administrators who can perform effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of talented and motivated professionals, delivering attentive customer services, and following a competitive value-based pricing model, Progent has been able to increase our customer list rapidly while providing consulting services to numerous companies in Northern California and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common knowledge base, and a team approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a loyal customer list.

Progent's commitment to providing information technology expertise and technical help to small companies will offer you the chance to collaborate intimately with key players and add appreciably to the growth of dynamic businesses.

We are looking for consultants who have verifiable credentials related to their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. In the case of Cisco experts, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should show you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security certifications. Of course, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, the fact that a credential can not ensure expertise is no justification for not earning one. If you know your field, then the majority of these tests should present no challenge. The point is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then customers deserve to see credentials. Progent will promote your talents, but you must provide basic credentials for us to market. If you stand strongly opposed to the concept of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are likely not a good candidate.

You don’t waste time or forfeit revenue with daily drives to a physical office building, and all driving you do for in-person client jobs is based on your own time table, not ours. The best benefit is that much of our consulting services can be performed off-site, representing maximum productivity for income-producing hours. In fact, some of our team members do off-site support exclusively.

Our business structure is set up for reacting rapidly and efficiently to client needs through knowledge sharing and cooperative problem solving. Even though our consultants operate with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is centralized, client problems and resolutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and organized for easy retrieval, current consultant schedules are published to streamline team tasks and enable problem escalation, and customer approval is always monitored. We strengthen the sense of connection via periodic team conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of our team is situated across California, however Progent is building a quickly expanding team of consulting experts throughout America.

Being confronted by a steady stream of technical challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Clients choose a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or chronic problems, and tricky migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for computer professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by establishing strong client contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused organization heart and soul. If you do not offer excellent people skills or enjoy working with a varied group of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good fit.
