Details About Jobs at Progent

Career Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco accredited system consultants who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP credentials; security consultants who have CISM or comparable security credentials; and high-end network architecture experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high uptime, workplace recovery, information preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for employees to work on our team of help desk service specialists and remote troubleshooting professionals. Also, Progent is hiring talented administrators able to perform effectively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of talented and motivated professionals, delivering world-class client services, and offering a competitive results-based fee model, We have been able to expand our client list dramatically while delivering consulting support to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared information database, and a team strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a talented staff and a satisfied customer list.

If you are an information technology consultant with technical support experience, joining Progent or working for our clients will enhance your skills via cooperation with Progent's group of highly supportive, talented consultants. Progent's focus on providing network consulting and technical support to small companies will offer you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with decision makers and contribute significantly to the growth of dynamic businesses.

Progent is looking for technical professionals who can show recognized credentials related to their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. In the case of Cisco professionals, have your CCIE or CCNP credential. For network security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or other top security certifications. Of course, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” However, the fact that a certificate can not guarantee excellence is no reason for not earning one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of those tests should pose no challenge. The point is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then clients expect credentials. We will promote your skills, but you need to provide basic credentials for us to work with. In case you stand strongly opposed to the concept of certifications, we can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's company culture will make you a better professional by enhancing your information technology skills and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the top professional experts for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, running proprietary software utilities to deliver the highest quality of support, and by optimizing proven operational structures for finding and keeping clients.

The decisive factor that distinguishes us from other consulting companies is the quality of our service staff. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited the best expertise covering a broad range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other key application, we deploy experts who can enable you to be successful on larger projects by combining the collective experience of our group of professionals.

To ensure the success of our consultants, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful technology to perform the work properly. We will leverage information technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables seamless communications, cooperation, and information exchange with other Progent team members — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit income with regular drives to a physical office, and any driving you do for in-person client jobs is based on your schedule, not ours. The best part is that most of our consulting work can be done remotely, offering maximum productivity for billable time. In practice, some of our team members do off-site support exclusively.

Progent's operations are set up for reacting rapidly and efficiently to customer requirements through knowledge sharing and cooperative problem solving. Although Progent's consultants operate with a high level of independence, resource allocation is centralized, customer problems and solutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and organized for convenient reference, current consultant availability is broadcast to facilitate group projects and enable trouble escalation, and customer approval is continually monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation through periodic team meetings and regular company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's consultants are situated across Northern California, but we are building a quickly expanding team of consulting professionals throughout America. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic boundaries that restrict the efficiency of conventional company models. We complete the deal by offering a comprehensive employee care plan to promote the physical health and economic security of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and administration teams match the excellence that defines Progent. These high-performance contributors to our growth are helping us to target and sign up the scores of new clients we are now engaging every month. Progent recently celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective sales organization.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a key for growth with us. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a continual series of network challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Clients choose a consultant to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, advanced implementations, vexing or entrenched problems, and tricky migrations are the basis for what we do daily. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for computer engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every day enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by establishing close client contacts and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented company from top to bottom. If you do not have excellent people skills or like cooperating with a varied group of personalities, then we are probably a poor match.

If this seems good to you, we invite you to contact Progent about our vision of the future of network consulting.
