Additional Facts Concerning Work at Progent

Fulltime Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent wants to find fulltime, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco certified network engineers with CCIE certification; security professionals with CISA or comparable security certification; and advanced network architecture experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high uptime, disaster recovery, information preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for employees who can join our team of desktop support technicians and off-site support experts. Also, We are hiring talented managers who can operate effectively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of talented and dedicated professionals, providing world-class client services, and following a strong value-focused pricing model, Progent has been able to increase our customer base dramatically while delivering consulting services to numerous businesses in Northern California and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common information database, and a group strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a talented staff and a satisfied client base.

If you are a network consultant with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or working for our clients will expand your skills via cooperation with Progent's staff of mutually team-oriented, expert consultants. Progent's commitment to delivering information technology expertise and computer support to small companies will offer you the opportunity to collaborate closely with key players and add significantly to the success of exciting companies.

We are looking for technical professionals who can show recognized certification in their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your Microsoft MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should show you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or other leading security certifications. Of course, Progent is aware of "paper experts". However, simply because a certificate can not guarantee expertise is no reason for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of these tests should pose no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then customers expect credentials. We will broadcast your talents, but you should provide basic certifications for Progent to market. In case you are strongly opposed to the concept of credentials, Progent can understand and honor your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

Enhance Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Working with a Great Group of Network Engineers

Progent's work environment will make you a better professional by improving your information technology knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the best consulting talent for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, running custom software utilities to enable the maximum quality of support, and by streamlining proven operational structures for attracting and retaining clients.

The most important factor that separates Progent from most consulting companies is the high quality of our consultants. Among the scores of consulting experts who have joined us, we have recruited top talent across a broad range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Mac, Linux, virtual servers, or other vital technologies, we engage professionals who can enable you to be effective on major jobs by leveraging the collective experience of Progent's group of experts.

To promote the success of Progent's team, we invest significantly in providing the best tools to do the work properly. Progent will exploit information technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows seamless connectivity, collaboration, and information exchange with other Progent team members — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit revenue with regular commutes to a physical office, and all driving you do for on-site customer work is determined by your own time table, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that most of Progent's consulting work can be performed off-site, representing 100% productivity for income-producing time. In fact, some Progent staff do remote consulting only.

Our operations are geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to customer needs through knowledge sharing and cooperative problem solving. Even though our engineers work with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is centralized, customer issues and resolutions are carefully tracked, documented, and archived for easy reference, current engineer schedules are broadcast to streamline group projects and simplify trouble escalation, and client approval is continually monitored. We strengthen the feeling of connection through periodic workgroup meetings and regular company-wide events.

Most of our consultants are situated throughout California, however we are building a quickly expanding team of consulting professionals from across the United States. Our virtual office environment eliminates geographic boundaries that restrict the efficiency of conventional company structures. We complete the deal by providing a comprehensive benefit program to ensure the health and economic welfare of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consultants, Progent's sales and administration teams match the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s growth are helping us to identify and land the scores of new clients we are now engaging each month. We lately 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 an effective sales organization.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for success with us. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of technical challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Clients rely on consulting firms to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, advanced implementations, vexing or chronic issues, and tricky migrations are the foundation for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for computer engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning excited about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will meet some great people, both by building strong customer contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused company heart and soul. If you do not offer strong communications skills or like cooperating with a diverse group of personalities, then Progent is probably a poor fit.

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