Additional Facts Concerning Jobs at Progent

Fulltime Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire full-time, results-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited network consultants who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security consultants who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security certification; and high-end system design consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high uptime, workplace recovery, information preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for professionals who can work on Progent's staff of desktop support specialists and off-site troubleshooting professionals. In addition, We are hiring experienced administrators who can operate productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of talented and dedicated professionals, providing attentive customer care, and offering a strong results-focused fee structure, We have been able to expand our customer base rapidly while providing professional support to numerous businesses in Northern California and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a common information database, and a team approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a satisfied customer list.

If you are a network professional with technical support expertise, joining Progent or helping our clients can expand your knowledge through cooperation with our staff of highly supportive, talented engineers. Progent's focus on providing network expertise and technical support to small companies will give you the chance to work closely with decision makers and add appreciably to the success of exciting businesses.

We are looking for consultants that can show recognized credentials in their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco consultants, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security certifications. Of course, we are aware of "paper experts". However, the fact that a credential can not ensure excellence is no excuse for not having one. If you know your stuff, then most of these certifications should present no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients expect certifications. We can promote your talents, but you must provide a baseline of credentials for us to work with. If you happen to be strongly against the concept of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

Improve Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Working with the Top Team of Network Engineers

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a more capable professional by improving your technical knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the top consulting experts for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art system architecture, running custom software tools to deliver the maximum level of support, and by streamlining proven operational models for attracting and keeping clients.

The decisive factor that differentiates us from most consulting firms is the excellence of our consulting team.

Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other key areas, we engage professionals who can enable you to be effective on larger jobs by leveraging the collective experience of Progent's group of professionals.

To ensure the success of our consultants, we invest significantly in making available the best tools to do the work efficiently. Progent will exploit information technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office environment allows effortless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent team members — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose revenue because of daily commutes to a physical office building, and all driving you do for in-person client jobs is based on your schedule, not Progent's. The best benefit is that much of our support services can be done off-site, offering maximum productivity for billable hours. In fact, some Progent team members do off-site support exclusively.

Our operations are geared towards responding quickly and efficiently to client requirements through information exchange and collaborative problem solving. Even though our engineers operate with a high level of freedom, dispatching is centralized, client problems and resolutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and organized for convenient reference, current consultant schedules are published to facilitate team projects and simplify trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is always evaluated. We reinforce the sense of connection through periodic workgroup conferences and regular corporate events.

Most of Progent's team is situated throughout Northern California, however Progent is attracting a rapidly growing team of network experts throughout the United States. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic obstacles that restrict the efficiency of traditional business structures. We enhance the deal by offering a comprehensive benefit plan to ensure the physical health and economic security of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, our marketing and operations teams match the high standards that defines Progent. These high-performance contributors to our success are helping us to identify and sign up the scores of new clients we are currently engaging each month. Progent recently celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing organization.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a key for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being exposed to a continual series of network challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Customers choose consultants to do the toughest jobs. Creative projects, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or chronic issues, and difficult migrations are the foundation for our services every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for computer professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every day excited about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some great folks, both by establishing strong client contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused company heart and soul. If you don’t offer strong communications skills or like cooperating with a varied assortment of people, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor fit.

If this sounds good to you, we urge you to contact Progent about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
