Additional Facts Concerning Work at Progent

Staff Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to find fulltime, solutions-driven Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco accredited system consultants with CCIE certification; security consultants with CISA or equivalent security credentials; and high-end system architecture experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, fault tolerance, disaster recovery, data protection, and VMware. Progent also is hiring employees who can work on our staff of helpdesk service technicians and remote support professionals. Also, Progent is hiring talented managers able to operate productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of talented and motivated consultants, delivering attentive client services, and following a strong results-focused pricing model, Progent has been able to increase our client base rapidly while delivering consulting support to hundreds of companies in Northern California and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a shared information base, and a group approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a loyal client list.

For a network consultant with troubleshooting experience, teaming with Progent or helping our clients can expand your knowledge via interaction with Progent's staff of mutually supportive, talented consultants. Progent's focus on delivering network expertise and computer support to small and midsize companies will give you the chance to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the growth of dynamic businesses.

We are looking for technical professionals that have verifiable certification related to their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft MCSE certificate. For Cisco experts, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Still, simply because a certificate does not ensure expertise is no justification for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of those tests should present no great difficulty. The point is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then clients expect certifications. Progent will market your talents, but you must have a baseline of certifications for us to market. In case you stand strongly against the idea of credentials, we can understand and honor your position, but you are likely not a good fit.

Enhance Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining the Top Group of Computer Consultants

Progent's business climate 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 best consulting experts for you to operate with, providing an advanced network and communications architecture, running proprietary application utilities to deliver the maximum level of support, and by streamlining proven operational models for attracting and retaining customers.

The main factor that distinguishes us from ordinary consulting firms is the high caliber of our support professionals. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited top talent across a wide range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other crucial areas, we deploy experts who can enable you to be effective on larger jobs by combining the aggregate experience of our group of experts.

To ensure the success of our team, we invest significantly in providing the best tools to do the work efficiently. Progent will leverage technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows effortless communications, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent team members — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit revenue with daily commutes to a conventional office, and all driving you do for on-site customer jobs is determined by your time table, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that most of Progent's support work can be performed off-site, representing maximum productivity for billable time. In fact, some of our staff do remote consulting only.

Our business structure is geared towards responding quickly and effectively to client needs through information sharing and collaborative problem solving. Although our engineers operate with a high level of freedom, dispatching is centralized, customer issues and solutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and organized for easy retrieval, current engineer schedules are published to facilitate group projects and simplify trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is always evaluated. We strengthen the sense of cooperation through periodic workgroup meetings and regular company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's team is situated throughout California, but Progent is attracting a quickly growing team of network experts from across the U.S. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional boundaries that limit the productivity of conventional business structures. We enhance the package by offering a full benefit program to promote the physical health and economic welfare of our employees and their families.

Just as we have awesome consultants, our sales and administration teams match the high standards that characterizes Progent. These high-performance factors behind our success are enabling us to identify and sign up the scores of new clients we are now engaging each month. We recently celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective marketing operation.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a key for success with us. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a continual series of network challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Clients choose consulting firms to do the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, advanced deployments, puzzling or chronic problems, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for what we do daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for network professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every day excited about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by building strong customer contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented company through and through. If you don’t offer strong people skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse assortment of people, then we are probably not a good match.

If this seems good to you, we invite you to talk to Progent about our vision of the future of information technology consulting.
