Additional Facts About Work at Progent

Fulltime Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent wants to find full-time, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited system engineers who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security consultants with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security credentials; and advanced network design consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, service continuity, workplace recovery, information preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also seeks employees who can join our team of help desk service technicians and remote support professionals. Also, Progent is seeking talented administrators who can operate productively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of talented and dedicated consultants, providing attentive customer services, and offering a strong value-focused pricing structure, We have been able to increase our customer list rapidly while providing professional services to hundreds of companies in Northern California and across the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a common information database, and a group strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a satisfied client base.

For a network professional with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or helping Progent's customers can enhance your skills through cooperation with our staff of mutually supportive, talented engineers. Progent's focus on providing network expertise and computer support to small and midsize organizations will offer you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the success of exciting businesses.

We are looking for technical professionals that have recognized certification in their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your MCSE credential. For Cisco consultants, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or one of the other leading security certifications. Of course, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, simply because a credential does not ensure excellence is no justification for not owning one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of those certifications should present no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers expect credentials. We can broadcast your talents, but you need to provide a baseline of credentials for Progent to market. If you happen to be adamantly opposed to the concept of certifications, Progent can understand and honor your opinion, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a better consultant by improving your technical skills and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the best consulting experts for you to operate with, providing an advanced network and communications architecture, using custom application utilities to deliver the highest quality of service, and by optimizing our operational structures for attracting and retaining customers.

The main factor that distinguishes Progent from other network support firms is the high caliber of our service staff. Among the scores of consulting experts who have joined us, we have assembled top expertise across a wide array of technologies. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Mac, Linux, server virtualization, or other key technologies, we deploy experts who can help you to be successful on major projects by leveraging the collective skills of Progent's team of experts.

To promote the productivity of Progent's team, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful technology to perform the work efficiently. Progent will exploit technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows effortless communications, collaboration, and information sharing with other Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit income because of daily drives to a conventional office, and any travel you do for in-person customer work is based on your own schedule, not ours. The best benefit is that much of Progent's consulting services can be done off-site, offering maximum efficiency for income-producing hours. In practice, some Progent team members do off-site support exclusively.

Our operations are geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to customer needs via knowledge exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Even though Progent's engineers operate with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, customer issues and resolutions are carefully tracked, documented, and organized for easy reference, up-to-date consultant availability is published to streamline group projects and enable problem escalation, and customer approval is always monitored. We strengthen the feeling of connection through periodic team meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of our consultants are located throughout California, however Progent is attracting a rapidly expanding team of network professionals from across the United States. Progent's virtual office environment eliminates regional boundaries that restrict the efficiency of conventional company structures. We complete the package by offering a full employee care program to promote the physical health and economic welfare of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, our sales and operations teams match the high standards that characterizes Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s growth are enabling us to identify and land the 50-60 new clients we are now acquiring each month. Progent lately celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong sales operation.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a key for success with us. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a steady series of network challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Customers choose consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, advanced implementations, puzzling or chronic problems, and difficult migrations are the basis for what we do every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for network professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every day excited about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by establishing strong customer relationships and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused company from top to bottom. If you don’t offer strong communications skills or enjoy working with a diverse assortment of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor fit.

If all this seems right for you, we invite you to contact us about our view of the new paradigm of network consulting.
