Details Concerning Jobs at Progent

Staff Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent wants to hire fulltime, results-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco accredited network consultants with Cisco credentials; security consultants who have CISM or comparable security certification; and high-end system design consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, service continuity, workplace recovery, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for professionals to work on Progent's team of helpdesk support technicians and off-site troubleshooting professionals. Also, We are seeking talented administrators who can perform effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of talented and dedicated professionals, delivering world-class customer services, and offering a competitive value-based pricing model, We have managed to expand our client list rapidly while providing professional services to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a common knowledge database, and a team 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 expertise, joining Progent or working for Progent's customers will enhance your knowledge via cooperation with Progent's staff of highly supportive, talented engineers. Our commitment to providing information technology consulting and technical support to small and midsize companies will offer you the chance to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add significantly to the success of dynamic businesses.

Progent is looking for consultants who have recognized credentials related to their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or other top security credentials. Of course, we are aware of "paper experts". However, simply because a credential can not guarantee expertise is no reason for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then most of those tests should be no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers expect certifications. We will broadcast your skills, but you should have standard credentials for us to work with. If you stand adamantly opposed to the concept of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining the Top Group of Computer Consultants

Progent's company culture will allow you to become a better professional by enhancing your information technology knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your customers. Progent delivers on this commitment by recruiting the top professional experts for you to work with, providing an advanced network and communications architecture, running custom software utilities to deliver the highest level of support, and by optimizing proven business structures for finding and keeping customers.

The decisive factor that distinguishes Progent from ordinary consulting firms is the excellence of our consultants. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited top talent covering a wide range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Mac, Linux, VMware, or other key areas, we engage professionals who can help you to be effective on larger jobs by combining the collective skills of our group of professionals.

To promote the success of our team, we invest heavily in providing the best technology to perform the job properly. We will leverage information technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure allows seamless communications, collaboration, and information sharing with fellow Progent team members — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue with daily drives to a physical office, and all travel you do for in-person client work is based on your time table, not Progent's. The best part is that much of Progent's support services can be performed remotely, representing maximum efficiency for billable time. In practice, some Progent staff do off-site consulting exclusively.

Progent's business structure is geared towards reacting quickly and efficiently to client needs via knowledge exchange and collaborative problem solving. Even though Progent's consultants operate with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is unified, customer issues and solutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and organized for convenient reference, current engineer availability is published to facilitate group tasks and enable problem escalation, and client satisfaction is continually evaluated. We strengthen the sense of connection via monthly team conferences and quarterly corporate events.

Most of Progent's team is located throughout Northern California, but we are building a quickly growing team of consulting professionals from across the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional boundaries that limit the productivity of traditional business structures. We complete the deal by providing a comprehensive benefit program to promote the physical health and financial security of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and operations teams live up to the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s success are enabling us to identify and land the scores of new clients we are currently acquiring each month. We lately celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for success with us. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of technical challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Clients choose consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, advanced implementations, puzzling or entrenched problems, and difficult migrations are the basis for what we do every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every morning excited about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will meet some great people, both by establishing close customer contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused company from top to bottom. If you do not have excellent people skills or enjoy working with a diverse assortment of people, then Progent is probably a poor fit.

If all this sounds right for you, we urge you to contact Progent about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
