Additional Facts Concerning Work with Us

Staff Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to find fulltime, solutions-driven Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP certification; Cisco accredited system consultants with Cisco certification; security consultants who have CISSP or equivalent security credentials; and high-end network architecture experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high uptime, business continuity, information protection, and VMware. Progent also is hiring employees to work on Progent's team of helpdesk service specialists and remote troubleshooting experts. In addition, We are seeking talented administrators able to perform productively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of talented and dedicated professionals, providing attentive customer services, and offering a strong value-based fee structure, We have managed to increase our customer list dramatically while delivering professional support to hundreds of companies in Northern California and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common knowledge database, and a group approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a loyal customer base.

For a network consultant with troubleshooting experience, teaming with Progent or working for our customers can enhance your skills through cooperation with our staff of highly team-oriented, expert engineers. Progent's commitment to delivering network consulting and technical support to small and midsize organizations will offer you the opportunity to work closely with key players and contribute significantly to the growth of exciting businesses.

We are hiring technical professionals that have verifiable certification in their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or other top security certifications. Naturally, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, the fact that a certificate can not guarantee expertise is no justification for not having one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of those certifications should be no challenge. The point is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers deserve to see certifications. We will broadcast your talents, but you must provide a baseline of credentials for Progent to market. If you stand adamantly against the idea of certifications, we can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are probably not a good fit.

Enhance Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Team of Network Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will allow you to become a more capable professional by enhancing your technical knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the top consulting talent for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art system architecture, running specialized application tools to deliver the highest level of service, and by optimizing proven business models for finding and maintaining customers.

The most important factor that differentiates Progent from ordinary network support firms is the high caliber of our service staff. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have joined us, we have recruited top talent across a broad range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other key technologies, we engage experts who can enable you to be successful on larger projects by combining the collective experience of Progent's group of experts.

To promote the productivity of Progent's team, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful technology to perform the job properly. We will leverage technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office environment enables seamless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent team members — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or lose revenue with daily commutes to a conventional office building, and any driving you do for in-person client work is determined by your time table, not ours. The best part is that much of our consulting services can be performed remotely, offering 100% efficiency for billable hours. In practice, some of our staff do remote support only.

Our operations are set up for responding rapidly and efficiently to customer requirements through information sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Although our engineers operate with a high level of independence, dispatching is unified, client issues and resolutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and organized for easy reference, current consultant availability is published to streamline team tasks and enable trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is always monitored. We reinforce the sense of cooperation through periodic workgroup conferences and regular company-wide events.

Most of Progent's team is situated across Northern California, however Progent is building a quickly growing group of consulting experts throughout the United States. Our virtual office environment eliminates regional boundaries that limit the efficiency of conventional business models. We enhance the deal by offering a comprehensive benefit plan to ensure the physical health and economic security of our employees and their families.

Just as we have awesome consultants, Progent's sales and administration groups match the high standards that defines Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s growth are helping us to identify and land the scores of new clients we are now acquiring each month. We recently celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong marketing organization.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with us. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a steady series of technical challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Customers rely on consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, advanced deployments, puzzling or entrenched problems, and difficult migrations are the basis for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for computer professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by building close client contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you do not have excellent communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse assortment of personalities, then Progent is probably not a good fit.

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