Additional Facts Concerning Work at Progent

Staff Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to find staff-level, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco certified system engineers who have Cisco CCIE credentials; security consultants with CISA or comparable security credentials; and advanced system architecture experts with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, fault tolerance, workplace recovery, data preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring employees who can work on Progent's team of helpdesk support technicians and off-site support professionals. In addition, We are hiring experienced managers able to operate effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of talented and motivated consultants, providing attentive customer care, and following a competitive results-based pricing structure, We have managed to increase our customer base dramatically while delivering professional services to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and across the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared information base, and a group approach to problem solving have helped Progent to retain a talented staff and a satisfied customer list.

If you are an information technology consultant with technical support experience, joining Progent or working for Progent's clients can expand your skills via cooperation with our group of highly team-oriented, talented engineers. Our commitment to delivering information technology consulting and computer help to small companies will offer you the chance to collaborate closely with decision makers and contribute significantly to the growth of exciting businesses.

Progent is hiring technical professionals that can show verifiable certification related to their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your MCSE certificate. For Cisco consultants, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other top security certifications. Naturally, we are familiar with "paper experts". However, the fact that a credential can not guarantee excellence is no reason for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then most of those certifications should pose no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then customers expect credentials. Progent will promote your talents, but you need to provide basic certifications for us to work with. In case you happen to be adamantly against the concept of certifications, Progent can understand and respect your position, but you are likely not a good fit.

Enhance Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Computer Engineers

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a more capable consulting professional by enhancing your technical knowledge and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the top professional talent for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art system architecture, running custom software utilities to enable the maximum quality of support, and by optimizing proven operational structures for attracting and maintaining customers.

The main factor that separates us from other network support companies is the high quality of our service staff. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined us, we have assembled top expertise covering a broad array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other key technologies, we engage experts who can help you to be successful on major jobs by leveraging the aggregate experience of Progent's team of experts.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful technology to do the work properly. Progent will leverage information technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables seamless connectivity, cooperation, and information sharing with fellow Progent team members — all from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit revenue with daily commutes to a physical office building, and any travel you do for on-site customer work is determined by your own schedule, not ours. The best benefit is that much of Progent's consulting work can be performed remotely, offering 100% productivity for income-producing time. In fact, some of our staff do off-site consulting only.

Progent's operations are geared towards reacting rapidly and effectively to client requirements via information exchange and cooperative problem solving. Even though our consultants work with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is unified, client issues and solutions are carefully monitored, documented, and organized for convenient retrieval, up-to-date engineer availability is published to facilitate group tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is continually monitored. We reinforce the sense of cooperation via monthly team meetings and regular company-wide events.

Most of Progent's consultants are located throughout California, however Progent is attracting a quickly growing team of consulting experts throughout the United States. Progent's virtual office environment does away with regional obstacles that restrict the efficiency of conventional company structures. We complete the deal by offering a full employee care program to promote the physical health and financial welfare of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consultants, our sales and administration teams match the excellence that defines Progent. These top-notch contributors to our growth are helping us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are now engaging each month. Progent lately celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective marketing operation.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a continual series of technical challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Clients choose consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Creative projects, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or entrenched problems, and tricky upgrades are the basis for what we do every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for computer engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning excited about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by building close client contacts and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused organization heart and soul. If you don’t offer strong people skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied group of people, then we are in all likelihood a poor fit.

If this sounds good to you, we invite you to contact Progent about our vision of the future of information technology consulting.
