Additional Facts Concerning Jobs with Us

Staff Jobs for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire full-time, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco certified system engineers with CCIE certification; security consultants with CISA or comparable security credentials; and advanced network design consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, service continuity, business continuity, information protection, and VMware. Progent also is hiring professionals to join our team of help desk support technicians and remote support experts. In addition, Progent is looking for talented managers who can perform effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of talented and dedicated consultants, providing world-class customer services, and following a strong results-based pricing structure, Progent has been able to increase our customer base rapidly while providing professional support to numerous companies in Northern California and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common knowledge base, and a group strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a talented staff and a satisfied client base.

For a network professional with troubleshooting experience, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's clients will expand your knowledge via cooperation with Progent's group of highly supportive, talented consultants. Progent's focus on delivering information technology consulting and computer support to small companies will give you the chance to work closely with decision makers and add appreciably to the growth of exciting companies.

Progent is hiring technical professionals that can show verifiable certification related to their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. In the case of Cisco experts, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should have you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or other top security credentials. Of course, Progent is aware of "paper experts". However, simply because a certificate does not guarantee expertise is no reason for not owning one. If you know your field, then most of these certifications should be no challenge. The point is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients expect credentials. We can market your talents, but you should have standard credentials for Progent to work with. In case you are strongly opposed to the concept of certifications, Progent can understand and honor your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Working with the Top Team of Network Consultants

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a more capable consultant by improving your information technology knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this commitment by recruiting the best professional talent for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, using specialized application utilities to deliver the maximum level of service, and by streamlining proven operational structures for finding and retaining clients.

The main factor that distinguishes Progent from most consulting firms is the high caliber of our service staff. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with us, we have assembled the best expertise across a wide array of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Apple, Linux, virtual servers, or other vital application, we deploy professionals who can help you to be effective on larger projects by combining the aggregate skills of Progent's team of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's team, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful tools to perform the job efficiently. We will leverage technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure allows effortless communications, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent consultants — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit revenue with regular drives to a physical office building, and all travel you do for in-person customer jobs is based on your time table, not Progent's. The best benefit is that much of our support services can be performed off-site, offering maximum productivity for income-producing hours. In fact, some of our staff do off-site consulting exclusively.

Progent's business structure is geared towards reacting quickly and efficiently to customer requirements through knowledge exchange and collaborative problem solving. Although our consultants work with a great deal of independence, dispatching is centralized, customer issues and solutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and archived for convenient reference, up-to-date engineer schedules are published to streamline team tasks and simplify problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually evaluated. We strengthen the sense of cooperation through periodic workgroup conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of our team is situated across Northern California, but Progent is building a rapidly growing team of consulting experts throughout America. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional obstacles that restrict the productivity of conventional company models. We enhance the deal by providing a full employee care program to promote the health and financial security of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consultants, Progent's sales and administration teams live up to the high standards that defines Progent. These high-performance factors behind our growth are helping us to target and land the 50-60 new clients we are now engaging every month. We recently celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales operation.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for success with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other job in information technology. Being exposed to a steady series of network challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Customers choose consulting firms to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, advanced deployments, vexing or chronic problems, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for network professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning excited about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by building close client contacts and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused organization from top to bottom. If you don’t have excellent communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse group of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good fit.

If all this sounds right for you, we urge you to talk to us about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
