Additional Facts About Opportunities at Progent

Career Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire full-time, results-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco certified network engineers with Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security professionals with CISA or comparable security credentials; and high-end network architecture consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, service continuity, workplace recovery, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for employees to join Progent's team of help desk service technicians and remote troubleshooting experts. Also, Progent is seeking talented managers who can perform productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of talented and dedicated consultants, delivering attentive customer services, and following a strong value-focused fee model, We have been able to increase our customer base dramatically while delivering consulting services to hundreds of companies in Northern California and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common information database, and a group strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a talented staff and a satisfied customer list.

If you are an information technology professional with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's clients can expand your knowledge through interaction with Progent's group of highly supportive, expert engineers. Progent's focus on delivering network consulting and technical help to small organizations will offer you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add significantly to the success of exciting businesses.

Progent is hiring technical professionals that can show recognized certification in their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. In the case of Cisco experts, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should show you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other top security certifications. Naturally, Progent is aware of "paper experts". However, simply because a certificate does not guarantee excellence is no excuse for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then most of these tests should present no great difficulty. The point is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients deserve to see certifications. We will broadcast your skills, but you should provide basic credentials for Progent to market. If you are adamantly against the concept of certifications, we can understand and respect your position, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Working with the Top Team of Network Engineers

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a more capable consultant by enhancing your technical skills and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the best consulting experts for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, running proprietary application tools to deliver the highest level of support, and by streamlining our business structures for finding and retaining clients.

The decisive factor that differentiates us from ordinary network support companies is the high caliber of our support professionals. Among the 50 or so consultants who have joined Progent, we have recruited top expertise covering a broad array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other vital technologies, we engage experts who can help you to be effective on major jobs by leveraging the collective experience of Progent's group of experts.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's team, we invest significantly in providing the best technology to do the job properly. We will leverage technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office environment enables seamless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit income with daily commutes to a conventional office, and all travel you do for on-site customer work is determined by your own time table, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that much of our support services can be performed off-site, representing maximum efficiency for billable hours. In fact, some Progent team members do remote consulting only.

Our operations are set up for reacting rapidly and effectively to customer needs via knowledge sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Although Progent's consultants work with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is unified, client issues and resolutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for easy reference, up-to-date consultant schedules are broadcast to streamline team projects and enable trouble escalation, and customer approval is always monitored. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation through monthly team meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of our team is located throughout California, however Progent is building a rapidly growing team of consulting experts from across America. Progent's virtual office environment eliminates regional boundaries that restrict the efficiency of traditional business models. We complete the package by offering a comprehensive employee care plan to ensure the health and economic security of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and administration groups live up to the high standards that is Progent. These top-notch contributors to our success are helping us to identify 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. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also a strong sales operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a key for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a steady series of network challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Clients rely on consulting firms to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, leading-edge deployments, vexing or entrenched issues, and difficult migrations are the basis for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for network professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will meet some great folks, both by establishing strong customer contacts and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented company from top to bottom. If you don’t offer excellent communications skills or like working with a diverse assortment of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor fit.

If this sounds right for you, we invite you to contact us about our vision of the future of information technology consulting.

Get Quality of Life Benefits and Technical Prowess with
Our Advanced Virtual Office Environment
