Additional Facts Concerning Opportunities with Us

Staff Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Service Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to find full-time, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco certified network engineers with Cisco CCIE credentials; security consultants with CISSP or comparable security credentials; and high-end network architecture consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, high uptime, business continuity, information preservation, and VMware. Progent also is looking for professionals who can join Progent's team of help desk service specialists and remote troubleshooting experts. In addition, Progent is hiring talented managers able to perform productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of talented and dedicated professionals, delivering attentive customer services, and offering a competitive value-based pricing model, Progent has been able to increase our client base dramatically while delivering professional services to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared information database, and a group approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a loyal customer list.

For an information technology professional with technical support expertise, joining Progent or helping our clients will enhance your skills via cooperation with our group of mutually team-oriented, talented consultants. Progent's focus on delivering information technology consulting and computer support to small organizations will give you the chance to work closely with decision makers and contribute significantly to the success of dynamic companies.

We are looking for consultants who can show recognized credentials related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your Microsoft MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco experts, have your CCIE or CCNP credential. For security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other leading security certifications. Naturally, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Still, simply because a certificate can not guarantee expertise is no justification for not earning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of those tests should be no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you are a professional, then customers deserve to see certifications. We can broadcast your skills, but you must provide basic certifications for us to market. In case you are strongly opposed to the concept of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are likely not a good fit.

Joining a Great Group of Computer Consultants

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a more capable consulting professional by enhancing your technical knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the best professional talent for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, running custom software utilities to deliver the maximum level of support, and by optimizing proven business structures for finding and retaining customers.

The most important factor that separates us from ordinary consulting companies is the high caliber of our service staff. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with us, we have recruited the best talent across a broad array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other key technologies, we engage experts who can enable you to be successful on major jobs by combining the collective experience of Progent's team of experts.

To promote the success of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in providing the best tools to perform the job efficiently. We will exploit technology to an extraordinary degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables seamless communications, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with other Progent team members — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit income because of daily commutes to a conventional office, and any travel you do for on-site customer work is determined by your time table, not ours. The best benefit is that most of our consulting services can be done off-site, offering 100% productivity for billable hours. In fact, some of our staff do remote support only.

Progent's operations are set up for responding quickly and efficiently to client needs via information exchange and cooperative problem solving. Even though our consultants work with a high level of independence, resource allocation is centralized, client problems and solutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and organized for convenient reference, up-to-date engineer schedules are published to streamline team tasks and enable trouble escalation, and customer approval is always monitored. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation through monthly team conferences and regular company-wide events.

Most of our team is located throughout Northern California, however we are building a quickly expanding group of network professionals throughout the U.S. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic obstacles that restrict the productivity of conventional company models. We enhance the package by offering a full benefit plan to ensure the health and economic security of our employees and their families.

Just as we have world-class consultants, our sales and operations groups live up to the excellence that is Progent. These top-notch contributors to our success are enabling us to target and land the 50-60 new clients we are currently engaging each month. Progent recently marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective sales organization.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for growth with us. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of network challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Customers rely on a consultant to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, advanced implementations, vexing or chronic problems, and tricky upgrades are the basis for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for computer professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by establishing close customer contacts and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization from top to bottom. If you don’t have strong communications skills or like working with a varied group of personalities, then we are in all likelihood a poor match.

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