Details Concerning Jobs at Progent

Career Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent wants to hire fulltime, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco certified network consultants who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security professionals who have CISSP or equivalent security credentials; and high-end system architecture consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high availability, business continuity, information protection, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks employees to work on Progent's team of desktop service specialists and off-site troubleshooting professionals. Also, We are seeking talented managers who can perform productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of skilled and motivated consultants, providing world-class customer services, and offering a competitive value-based fee structure, Progent has been able to increase our client base rapidly while providing consulting support to numerous businesses in Northern California and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared information database, and a group approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a satisfied customer list.

If you are an information technology professional with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or helping our clients can expand your skills through interaction with Progent's staff of mutually team-oriented, expert consultants. Our commitment to providing network expertise and computer support to small companies will offer you the opportunity to work intimately with key players and contribute significantly to the growth of exciting businesses.

We are hiring consultants that can show recognized credentials related to their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco experts, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or one of the other top security certifications. Naturally, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, the fact that a credential does not guarantee expertise is no justification for not having one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of those tests should pose no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients expect credentials. We can promote your talents, but you should provide standard certifications for us to market. If you are adamantly against the concept of credentials, we can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are likely not a good fit.

We will leverage information technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office environment enables seamless communications, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent team members — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit revenue because of daily commutes to a physical office building, and any travel you do for in-person client jobs is based on your own time table, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that much of Progent's consulting work can be done remotely, representing 100% efficiency for billable hours. In practice, some Progent team members do off-site consulting exclusively.

Our business structure is geared towards responding rapidly and effectively to customer needs through knowledge sharing and cooperative problem solving. Even though Progent's consultants work with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is centralized, client problems and solutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and archived for easy retrieval, up-to-date engineer schedules are broadcast to facilitate team tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and client approval is always monitored. We reinforce the sense of connection through periodic team conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of our consultants are situated across Northern California, however we are building a rapidly growing team of network professionals throughout the U.S. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with regional boundaries that limit the productivity of traditional company structures. We complete the package by offering a comprehensive benefit plan to ensure the health and economic security of our employees and their relations.

These top-notch contributors to our growth are enabling us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are now engaging every month. We recently celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with us. A job in consulting will drive 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 rely on consulting firms to do the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, leading-edge deployments, vexing or entrenched problems, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for our services daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for network professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by building close client relationships and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization heart and soul. If you don’t offer strong communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse assortment of personalities, then we are probably a poor match.

If this seems good to you, we urge you to contact Progent about our view of the new paradigm of network consulting.
