Additional Facts Concerning Opportunities with Us

Career Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent wants to hire fulltime, results-driven Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco accredited system engineers who have Cisco certification; security consultants who have CISM or equivalent security certification; and advanced network design consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, high uptime, disaster recovery, data preservation, and VMware. Progent also is hiring employees who can work on Progent's team of desktop support technicians and off-site support experts. In addition, We are looking for talented administrators who can perform productively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of talented and dedicated consultants, delivering attentive client services, and following a strong value-based pricing structure, Progent has managed to expand our client list dramatically while delivering professional support to hundreds of companies in Northern California and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a common information database, and a team approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a satisfied client list.

If you are an information technology professional with technical support expertise, joining Progent or helping Progent's clients will expand your skills via interaction with Progent's staff of highly supportive, expert consultants. Our commitment to delivering information technology consulting and computer help to small and midsize organizations will give you the opportunity to collaborate closely with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the growth of exciting businesses.

Progent is looking for consultants who have verifiable credentials related to their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco experts, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other top security certifications. Of course, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, simply because a credential can not ensure excellence is no reason for not earning one. If you have mastered your field, then most of these tests should pose no challenge. The bottom line is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then customers expect certifications. We will market your talents, but you need to provide a baseline of certifications for Progent to work with. If you are strongly opposed to the idea of credentials, we can understand and respect your position, but you are probably not a good candidate.

Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the top professional talent for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, running custom software tools to deliver the maximum level of support, and by optimizing our operational structures for finding and maintaining clients.

The most important factor that separates Progent from ordinary consulting companies is the quality of our consulting team. Among the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have recruited top talent across a broad range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux, server virtualization, or other crucial areas, we engage experts who can enable you to be effective on major projects by combining the aggregate experience of our group of experts.

To promote the success of Progent's team, we invest heavily in making available the best technology to perform the job efficiently. Progent will leverage information technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure allows effortless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent team members — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit income with regular drives to a conventional office building, and any travel you do for in-person customer jobs is based on your own time table, not Progent's. The best part is that most of Progent's consulting work can be performed remotely, offering maximum productivity for income-producing time. In fact, some Progent team members do off-site support exclusively.

Our operations are geared towards responding quickly and efficiently to customer needs through information exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Even though our engineers operate with a high level of independence, resource allocation is unified, customer issues and resolutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and organized for convenient retrieval, up-to-date consultant schedules are published to facilitate team projects and enable problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually monitored. We strengthen the feeling of connection via periodic team meetings and regular corporate events.

Most of our consultants are situated throughout Northern California, however Progent is building a rapidly expanding team of consulting experts from across America. Our virtual office environment eliminates geographic boundaries that restrict the efficiency of traditional company models. We complete the package by providing a full benefit plan to ensure the physical health and financial welfare of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consultants, our marketing and operations teams match the high standards that defines Progent. These high-performance factors behind our success are enabling us to target and land the 50-60 new clients we are currently engaging each month. We recently celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also a strong marketing operation.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a key for success with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of technical challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Clients rely on consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or entrenched issues, and tricky migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for computer engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every day excited about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by building close customer contacts and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented company through and through. If you don’t have strong people skills or enjoy working with a diverse group of personalities, then Progent is probably not a good match.

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