Additional Facts Concerning Opportunities with Us

Fulltime Work for Network Engineers, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Professionals

Progent wants to hire staff-level, results-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP certification; Cisco accredited network consultants who have Cisco certification; security consultants with CISM or comparable security certification; and advanced system design consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, fault tolerance, business continuity, data preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring employees who can join Progent's staff of helpdesk service specialists and off-site support professionals. Also, Progent is looking for talented administrators who can perform productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of talented and dedicated consultants, providing attentive customer services, and offering a strong results-focused pricing model, We have managed to increase our customer list dramatically while delivering professional services to numerous companies in Northern California and throughout the United States.

Our commitment to delivering network expertise and technical support to small companies will give you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with key players and contribute significantly to the success of exciting businesses.

Progent is looking for consultants that have recognized credentials related to their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco experts, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security credentials. Of course, Progent is aware of "paper experts". Notwithstanding, simply because a certificate can not guarantee excellence is no excuse for not having one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of those certifications should be no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients deserve to see certifications. We will promote your talents, but you should have a baseline of credentials for us to work with. If you happen to be adamantly opposed to the idea of certifications, we can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Joining a Great Group of Network Engineers

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a more capable consulting professional by enhancing your information technology knowledge and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the best consulting talent for you to operate with, providing an advanced system architecture, running custom application tools to enable the maximum quality of service, and by streamlining proven business structures for finding and keeping customers.

The main factor that separates Progent from other consulting companies is the high quality of our support professionals. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled top expertise covering a wide range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux, server virtualization, or other crucial areas, we deploy experts who can help you to be successful on major jobs by combining the aggregate experience of Progent's group of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of our consultants, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful tools to do the work properly. Progent will exploit technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables effortless connectivity, cooperation, and information exchange with other Progent team members — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose income because of daily drives to a conventional office, and any driving you do for in-person customer work is based on your own schedule, not ours. The best part is that much of our support work can be performed off-site, representing maximum productivity for billable time. In fact, some of our staff do off-site support only.

Our operations are geared towards reacting rapidly and effectively to customer requirements via knowledge exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Although Progent's engineers operate with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, client problems and solutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for easy retrieval, current consultant availability is broadcast to facilitate group projects and enable trouble escalation, and client approval is continually monitored. We strengthen the feeling of connection via monthly team meetings and regular company-wide events.

Most of our consultants are situated across California, however we are building a rapidly growing group of network experts throughout America. Our virtual office environment eliminates regional obstacles that restrict the efficiency of traditional business structures. We complete the deal by offering a full benefit plan to promote the health and economic security of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consultants, Progent's marketing and operations groups match the excellence that characterizes Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s success are helping us to identify and land the 50-60 new clients we are currently acquiring every month. Progent lately marked the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective sales organization.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with us. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a steady series of network challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Clients rely on a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, advanced implementations, vexing or chronic issues, and difficult migrations are the foundation for what we do daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for computer professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every day excited about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by establishing close customer contacts and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization from top to bottom. If you don’t offer excellent communications skills or like working with a varied group of personalities, then Progent is probably a poor match.

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