Additional Facts Concerning Opportunities at Progent

Career Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Help Professionals

Progent wants to hire staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP certification; Cisco accredited network consultants with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security professionals who have CISSP or comparable security certification; and high-end network design consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high uptime, business continuity, information protection, and VMware. Progent also is looking for professionals who can work on our team of helpdesk service technicians and remote troubleshooting experts. Also, We are seeking talented administrators who can perform effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of talented and dedicated professionals, delivering world-class customer care, and following a competitive results-focused fee structure, Progent has managed to increase our client list rapidly while delivering professional services to numerous companies in Northern California and across the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a common information database, and a group strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a loyal client base.

For a network professional with technical support experience, joining Progent or helping our clients can expand your skills via cooperation with Progent's group of highly supportive, talented consultants. Progent's focus on providing network consulting and computer support to small companies will offer you the chance to collaborate intimately with key players and add appreciably to the growth of exciting businesses.

We are hiring technical professionals who can show verifiable credentials in their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco experts, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should show you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other top security credentials. Of course, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” However, simply because a certificate can not guarantee expertise is no reason for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of these certifications should present no challenge. The point is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients deserve to see certifications. We will promote your skills, but you should provide a baseline of credentials for us to market. In case you stand adamantly opposed to the idea of credentials, we can understand and honor your position, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Enhance Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Working with the Top Team of Network Consultants

Progent's work environment will make you a more capable professional by enhancing your technical knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the top professional talent for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, using specialized application tools to enable the maximum quality of support, and by streamlining our operational models for attracting and retaining customers.

The most important factor that separates us from typical network support companies is the excellence of our consulting team. Among the 50 or so consultants who have joined Progent, we have recruited top talent covering a broad range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other vital technologies, we deploy professionals who can help you to be effective on larger projects by leveraging the collective experience of Progent's group of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of our consultants, we invest significantly in providing the best tools to perform the work efficiently. Progent will exploit information technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows effortless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose income because of daily commutes to a conventional office building, and any driving you do for in-person customer work is based on your time table, not ours. The best part is that much of our consulting services can be done off-site, representing maximum productivity for billable time. In practice, some Progent team members do off-site support only.

Progent's operations are set up for responding quickly and efficiently to customer requirements via knowledge sharing and collaborative problem solving. Although Progent's consultants operate with a high level of independence, dispatching is centralized, customer issues and solutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and archived for convenient retrieval, up-to-date consultant availability is broadcast to streamline team tasks and enable trouble escalation, and customer approval is always monitored. We strengthen the feeling of connection through periodic team conferences and regular corporate events.

Most of our consultants are located across Northern California, however Progent is attracting a quickly growing team of network experts throughout the U.S. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional boundaries that limit the efficiency of conventional business models. We complete the deal by providing a comprehensive benefit program to ensure the physical health and financial security of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, our marketing and operations teams live up to the excellence that defines Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s growth are enabling us to target and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are now engaging every month. Progent lately celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong sales organization.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being exposed to a continual series of network challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Clients choose a consultant to perform the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, leading-edge deployments, vexing or entrenched problems, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for network professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning excited about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by establishing close customer contacts and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization from top to bottom. If you do not offer excellent communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse group of people, then we are probably not a good match.

If all this seems right for you, we urge you to contact us about our view of the new paradigm of network consulting.

Get Lifestyle Benefits and Technical Prowess with
Our Advanced Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent believes that a well designed and executed network is a pivotal piece for accelerating a company's success, and we follow this belief in our corporate system environment.
