Additional Facts Concerning Jobs at Progent

Staff Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Help Professionals

Progent wants to hire fulltime, results-driven Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco accredited network consultants who have Cisco CCIE credentials; security professionals with CISM or equivalent security credentials; and high-end system design experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, service continuity, workplace recovery, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring employees to join Progent's staff of helpdesk service specialists and off-site support professionals. Also, Progent is hiring talented managers able to perform productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of talented and dedicated professionals, providing world-class client services, and offering a competitive results-focused pricing structure, Progent has managed to increase our client base dramatically while delivering professional services to numerous companies in Northern California and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common knowledge database, and a group approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a skilled staff and a loyal client list.

If you are an information technology consultant with technical support experience, joining Progent or working for Progent's clients will expand your skills via interaction with Progent's staff of mutually team-oriented, talented engineers. Progent's commitment to delivering network consulting and computer help to small and midsize organizations will offer you the chance to collaborate intimately with key players and add appreciably to the growth of dynamic companies.

We are looking for consultants that have verifiable certification in their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your MCSE credential. For Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should have you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” However, the fact that a certificate can not ensure expertise is no reason for not earning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of these certifications should be no great difficulty. The point is that if you are a professional, then customers expect credentials. Progent can broadcast your skills, but you should have standard credentials for Progent to work with. If you happen to be strongly against the concept of credentials, we can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are likely not a good fit.

Enhance Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Working with the Top Group of Network Consultants

Progent's company culture will make you a more capable consultant by improving your information technology knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the best consulting experts for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, using specialized software utilities to enable the highest quality of support, and by optimizing our operational models for attracting and keeping customers.

The most important factor that differentiates Progent from ordinary network support firms is the quality of our consultants. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined Progent, we have assembled the best talent covering a broad array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other key application, we engage experts who can help you to be successful on larger jobs by leveraging the collective experience of Progent's group of professionals.

To promote the success of our team, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful tools to do the job efficiently. We will leverage information technology to an extraordinary degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables seamless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with other Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or lose income with regular commutes to a conventional office, and all travel you do for on-site client work is based on your time table, not ours. The best part is that much of our support work can be performed remotely, representing 100% productivity for income-producing time. In practice, some Progent team members do off-site consulting exclusively.

Our business structure is geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to customer needs through information sharing and collaborative problem solving. Even though Progent's consultants operate with a high level of independence, resource allocation is centralized, client issues and solutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for convenient retrieval, current engineer schedules are broadcast to streamline group tasks and enable problem escalation, and customer approval is always monitored. We reinforce the feeling of connection through monthly workgroup conferences and quarterly corporate events.

The majority of our team is situated across California, however we are building a quickly growing team of network experts from across America. Our virtual office environment eliminates geographic obstacles that restrict the productivity of traditional company structures. We enhance the deal by providing a full employee care program to ensure the physical health and financial security of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, our sales and administration groups match the high standards that characterizes Progent. These top-notch factors behind our success are helping us to target and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are now engaging each month. Progent recently celebrated 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 a strong sales organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a key for growth with us. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of technical challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Clients choose consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, advanced implementations, puzzling or chronic problems, and tricky upgrades are the basis for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for computer professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every day excited about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will work with some great folks, both by building strong client contacts and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented company from top to bottom. If you don’t offer excellent people skills or enjoy working with a diverse group of people, then we are probably not a good fit.

If all this sounds good to you, we urge you to contact us about our vision of the future of network consulting.
