Additional Facts About Work at Progent

Staff Work for Network Consultants, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Technicians

Progent wants to find staff-level, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP certification; Cisco accredited network engineers who have Cisco credentials; security professionals who have CISA or comparable security certification; and advanced system design experts with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high uptime, business continuity, information preservation, and VMware. Progent also is looking for professionals to join Progent's staff of help desk support specialists and remote support experts. Also, We are looking for experienced administrators who can perform effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of talented and motivated consultants, delivering world-class client services, and offering a competitive value-focused fee structure, We have been able to increase our customer base rapidly while providing consulting support to numerous businesses in Northern California and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common information base, and a team approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied client base.

If you are a network professional with technical support experience, joining Progent or working for Progent's customers will expand your knowledge via cooperation with our group of highly supportive, talented engineers. Progent's commitment to delivering information technology consulting and computer support to small companies will offer you the chance to work intimately with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the growth of exciting companies.

We are looking for technical professionals who have recognized certification related to their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or CCNP credential. For security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security certifications. Naturally, we are familiar with "paper experts". Nevertheless, simply because a credential does not guarantee excellence is no reason for not earning one. If you know your field, then the majority of these tests should be no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then customers expect credentials. Progent will market your skills, but you should have a baseline of certifications for Progent to work with. If you happen to be strongly against the idea of certifications, Progent can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not a good candidate.

We will exploit technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows seamless communications, collaboration, and information sharing with fellow Progent team members — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit income because of regular drives to a physical office building, and all travel you do for on-site client jobs is determined by your schedule, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that much of Progent's consulting work can be done remotely, representing 100% productivity for income-producing hours. In fact, some of our team members do remote support exclusively.

Progent's operations are set up for reacting rapidly and efficiently to customer needs via knowledge exchange and cooperative problem solving. Even though Progent's consultants work with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is centralized, customer issues and solutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and archived for easy retrieval, up-to-date engineer availability is published to streamline team projects and enable trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is always monitored. We strengthen the sense of connection via periodic team meetings and regular corporate events.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with us. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of network challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Clients rely on a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, advanced implementations, puzzling or chronic problems, and tricky migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for computer engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will meet some great folks, both by building strong customer relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused organization through and through.
