Details Concerning Jobs at Progent

Career Jobs for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, results-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco certified network consultants who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security consultants with CISM or equivalent security certification; and advanced system architecture consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, service continuity, disaster recovery, information preservation, and VMware. Progent also is hiring employees who can join our staff of helpdesk support technicians and remote support professionals. Also, We are hiring talented administrators who can perform productively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of talented and motivated consultants, providing attentive customer services, and following a strong results-focused pricing model, Progent has managed to increase our client list dramatically while providing consulting support to numerous businesses in Northern California and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a common knowledge base, and a group strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a skilled staff and a loyal customer list.

For a network professional with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or helping our customers will enhance your knowledge via cooperation with Progent's group of highly supportive, expert consultants. Progent's commitment to delivering network consulting and computer help to small and midsize organizations will offer you the opportunity to collaborate closely with key players and contribute appreciably to the success of dynamic businesses.

Progent is looking for technical professionals that can show recognized certification related to their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco experts, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or other leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". However, simply because a credential does not guarantee expertise is no justification for not earning one. If you know your field, then most of these certifications should be no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers deserve to see certifications. We can broadcast your talents, but you need to have basic credentials for us to market. If you happen to be adamantly against the idea of credentials, we can understand and respect your position, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Working with a Great Group of Network Consultants

Progent's work environment will make you a more capable consultant by improving your technical knowledge and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the top professional experts for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications infrastructure, running proprietary software tools to enable the highest level of service, and by optimizing proven business models for attracting and retaining customers.

The most important factor that separates Progent from most consulting companies is the quality of our support professionals. Among the scores of consultants who have teamed with us, we have recruited top expertise covering a broad range of technologies. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux, virtual servers, or other key application, we deploy professionals who can help you to be successful on major jobs by combining the aggregate skills of our group of experts.

To promote the success of Progent's team, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful technology to do the job efficiently. Progent will leverage information technology to an extraordinary degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables seamless communications, collaboration, and information exchange with other Progent team members — entirely from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit revenue because of regular commutes to a conventional office, and all travel you do for on-site customer work is based on your time table, not Progent's. The best part is that most of Progent's consulting work can be performed off-site, offering 100% productivity for billable hours. In practice, some of our staff do remote consulting only.

Our operations are set up for reacting quickly and efficiently to client needs via knowledge exchange and cooperative problem solving. Even though our consultants work with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is unified, client problems and resolutions are carefully monitored, documented, and organized for easy reference, up-to-date engineer availability is published to streamline group projects and enable problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually monitored. We reinforce the sense of cooperation through periodic workgroup meetings and regular corporate events.

Most of our team is situated across Northern California, but we are building a quickly expanding group of consulting professionals throughout America. Progent's virtual office environment does away with regional obstacles that restrict the productivity of conventional company models. We complete the deal by offering a comprehensive benefit program to ensure the physical health and financial security of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, our marketing and administration groups match the excellence that is Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s success are helping us to identify and land the scores of new clients we are currently engaging every month. We recently celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a key for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of network challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Clients rely on a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, advanced implementations, vexing or chronic problems, and difficult upgrades are the basis for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for computer professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by establishing close customer contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused organization heart and soul. If you do not offer excellent communications skills or like cooperating with a diverse group of personalities, then we are in all likelihood a poor match.

If this seems right for you, we invite you to talk to us about our view of the future of information technology consulting.

Enjoy Quality of Life Improvements and Technical Success with
Our Advanced Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent is convinced that a well designed and implemented network is a crucial piece for enabling any company's growth, and we apply this belief in our own network environment.
