More Information About Opportunities at Progent

Staff Work for Network Engineers, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, results-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco certified system consultants with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security consultants who have CISSP or comparable security credentials; and advanced system design experts with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, disaster recovery, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring employees to join Progent's team of helpdesk support technicians and remote troubleshooting professionals. Also, We are seeking experienced managers able to operate effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of skilled and dedicated consultants, providing world-class customer services, and offering a competitive value-based pricing structure, Progent has been able to expand our client base dramatically while providing professional support to hundreds of companies in Northern California and across the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a common knowledge database, and a group strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a satisfied customer base.

If you are an information technology professional with technical support experience, joining Progent or working for our customers will expand your knowledge through interaction with our group of highly team-oriented, talented consultants. Our commitment to delivering network consulting and technical help to small companies will offer you the chance to work intimately with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the success of dynamic businesses.

Progent is hiring technical professionals that can show recognized credentials in their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco consultants, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should have you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other leading security credentials. Of course, we are aware of "paper experts". Notwithstanding, simply because a credential does not ensure excellence is no justification for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of those certifications should pose no challenge. The bottom line is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then customers expect certifications. Progent can promote your skills, but you must have standard credentials for us to market. In case you are strongly opposed to the idea of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

Joining the Top Group of Network Consultants

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a more capable consultant by improving your technical knowledge and boosting the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this commitment by recruiting the best professional talent for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, running proprietary software utilities to deliver the maximum quality of support, and by optimizing proven operational models for attracting and maintaining clients.

The most important factor that differentiates us from other consulting firms is the high quality of our service staff. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have joined us, we have recruited top talent covering a wide range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other key areas, we deploy experts who can enable you to be effective on larger projects by combining the collective experience of our team of experts.

To ensure the success of our consultants, we invest heavily in providing the best technology to do the job properly. We will exploit information technology to an extraordinary degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows seamless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with other Progent team members — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit income with daily drives to a conventional office building, and any driving you do for on-site customer jobs is determined by your schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that much of our support work can be performed remotely, representing 100% productivity for income-producing time. In fact, some of our staff do remote consulting only.

Our operations are geared towards reacting rapidly and effectively to client needs through knowledge sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Even though Progent's consultants work with a high level of freedom, dispatching is centralized, customer issues and solutions are carefully tracked, documented, and organized for easy reference, up-to-date consultant availability is broadcast to facilitate team projects and simplify trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is continually monitored. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation via periodic team meetings and regular company-wide events.

Most of our consultants are situated throughout California, however we are attracting a quickly expanding group of network professionals throughout America. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic obstacles that limit the productivity of traditional business models. We enhance the package by offering a comprehensive employee care program to ensure the health and economic welfare of our employees and their families.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and operations teams live up to the high standards that defines Progent. These high-performance factors behind our growth are helping us to target and sign up the scores of new customers we are currently engaging every month. We recently marked the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective marketing organization.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for success with us. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of network challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Clients choose a consultant to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, advanced implementations, vexing or chronic problems, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for what we do every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for network engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by building strong customer contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization from top to bottom. If you do not offer excellent people skills or like cooperating with a diverse group of people, then we are probably not a good match.

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