Additional Facts About Work with Us

Fulltime Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire full-time, solutions-driven Microsoft certified consultants with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco certified network consultants with Cisco credentials; security professionals who have CISSP or equivalent security credentials; and high-end system architecture consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, workplace recovery, information preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks professionals who can work on Progent's team of helpdesk service specialists and off-site troubleshooting experts. Also, Progent is looking for experienced administrators able to perform productively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of talented and dedicated professionals, delivering attentive client services, and following a competitive results-based pricing structure, We have managed to expand our customer base dramatically while providing professional services to numerous companies in Northern California and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a common information base, and a group strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to retain a skilled staff and a satisfied customer base.

For an information technology professional with technical support experience, joining Progent or working for Progent's customers can enhance your skills through cooperation with our staff of highly supportive, expert engineers. Our commitment to delivering network consulting and computer support to small organizations will offer you the chance to work closely with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the success of exciting businesses.

We are looking for technical professionals who can show verifiable credentials related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your Microsoft MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco experts, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security certifications. Of course, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Notwithstanding, the fact that a certificate does not ensure excellence is no reason for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then most of these tests should be no challenge. The bottom line is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients deserve to see credentials. We can broadcast your skills, but you should provide standard credentials for us to market. If you are adamantly against the idea of credentials, Progent can understand and respect your position, but you are probably not a good candidate.

Improve Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Computer Engineers

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a better consultant by enhancing your information technology knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your customers. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the top consulting talent for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, using custom application utilities to deliver the highest level of support, and by optimizing our operational models for finding and retaining customers.

The main factor that differentiates Progent from ordinary consulting companies is the high quality of our consultants. Among the scores of consultants who have joined us, we have recruited top expertise across a wide array of technical areas. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Apple, Linux, virtual servers, or other key application, we engage experts who can help you to be effective on larger jobs by leveraging the collective skills of our team of experts.

To ensure the success of our team, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful tools to do the job properly. We will leverage technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure allows seamless communications, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with other Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose revenue with regular drives to a physical office, and any travel you do for in-person client jobs is determined by your time table, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that most of our support services can be performed off-site, offering 100% efficiency for billable time. In practice, some Progent team members do off-site support exclusively.

Progent's operations are set up for responding quickly and efficiently to client requirements via information exchange and collaborative problem solving. Even though our consultants operate with a high level of independence, resource allocation is centralized, client problems and resolutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and organized for convenient retrieval, up-to-date consultant schedules are broadcast to streamline group projects and simplify trouble escalation, and customer approval is continually evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation through monthly workgroup conferences and regular corporate events.

Most of Progent's consultants are situated throughout California, however we are attracting a quickly expanding team of consulting experts throughout America. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic obstacles that limit the efficiency of traditional business structures. We enhance the deal by offering a comprehensive benefit plan to promote the health and economic welfare of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and administration groups live up to the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s growth are helping us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are now engaging every month. We lately marked the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales organization.

Having a passion for technical excellence 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 network technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of technical challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Clients choose a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or entrenched problems, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for our services every day. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for computer engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every day excited about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some great people, both by building strong customer relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused company through and through. If you don’t offer strong communications skills or like cooperating with a diverse assortment of people, then we are probably a poor match.

If all this seems good to you, we urge you to contact us about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
