Details Concerning Opportunities with Us

Career Work for Network Consultants, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco certified system engineers with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security consultants who have CISM or equivalent security certification; and advanced network architecture experts with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, high availability, disaster recovery, information preservation, and VMware. Progent also seeks employees who can join Progent's team of help desk service technicians and off-site support experts. Also, We are hiring talented administrators able to perform productively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of skilled and dedicated professionals, delivering attentive client care, and offering a strong results-based fee model, We have managed to expand our customer list dramatically while providing professional services to numerous companies in Northern California and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a common knowledge base, and a team approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a loyal client base.

If you are a network consultant with technical support expertise, joining Progent or helping our customers can enhance your skills through interaction with Progent's staff of highly team-oriented, talented engineers. Progent's commitment to delivering network consulting and computer support to small organizations will give you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the growth of exciting businesses.

Progent is looking for consultants that have recognized certification related to their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco experts, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other top security certifications. Naturally, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, the fact that a credential can not guarantee excellence is no excuse for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of these tests should be no challenge. The bottom line is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then customers expect certifications. Progent can market your skills, but you need to have standard certifications for Progent to market. If you stand strongly against the concept of credentials, we can understand and honor your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

Enhance Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Working with the Top Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's business climate will make you a better consulting professional by improving your information technology knowledge and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the top consulting talent for you to operate with, providing an advanced system architecture, using proprietary software tools to deliver the highest quality of support, and by streamlining proven business models for finding and maintaining clients.

The most important factor that separates Progent from ordinary consulting companies is the quality of our support professionals. Among the 50 or so consultants who have joined us, we have assembled top talent covering a wide array of technologies. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other crucial areas, we deploy experts who can help you to be successful on major jobs by combining the collective experience of our group of experts.

To ensure the success of our team, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful tools to perform the work properly. We will exploit information technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office environment allows seamless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent team members — all from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of regular commutes to a physical office building, and all travel you do for on-site client jobs is determined by your own time table, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that much of our support services can be performed remotely, offering 100% productivity for income-producing time. In fact, some of our team members do remote consulting exclusively.

Our business structure is set up for responding rapidly and effectively to customer needs via information sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Even though our engineers operate with a high level of independence, dispatching is centralized, customer issues and solutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and organized for easy reference, current engineer availability is broadcast to streamline group projects and simplify problem escalation, and client approval is always evaluated. We strengthen the sense of cooperation via periodic team conferences and regular corporate events.

Most of Progent's team is situated across California, but we are attracting a rapidly expanding group of consulting experts from across America. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic boundaries that limit the efficiency of traditional company structures. We enhance the deal by offering a full employee care plan to ensure the physical health and financial welfare of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, Progent's marketing and operations teams live up to the high standards that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s success are helping us to identify and land the 50-60 new clients we are currently engaging every month. Progent lately marked the providing of support to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for success with us. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of technical challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Clients choose a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, advanced deployments, puzzling or entrenched problems, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for our services daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for network engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning excited about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some great people, both by establishing strong customer relationships and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused company from top to bottom. If you do not offer strong communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied group of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good fit.

If this sounds right for you, we urge you to contact Progent about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
