Details Concerning Work at Progent

Career Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent wants to find staff-level, results-driven Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited system consultants who have CCIE certification; security consultants who have CISSP or equivalent security certification; and advanced network design experts with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high availability, workplace recovery, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring professionals to join Progent's team of desktop service technicians and remote troubleshooting experts. In addition, We are hiring experienced administrators able to operate productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of skilled and dedicated professionals, delivering attentive customer services, and following a competitive value-focused pricing structure, We have been able to expand our client list rapidly while providing consulting support to hundreds of companies in Northern California and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared information base, and a team strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to retain a skilled staff and a loyal customer base.

For an information technology professional with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or working for Progent's clients can enhance your knowledge via interaction with Progent's staff of highly team-oriented, talented engineers. Progent's focus on providing information technology expertise and computer help to small organizations will offer you the opportunity to collaborate closely with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the success of exciting companies.

We are hiring technical professionals that have recognized credentials in their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your MCSE certificate. For Cisco professionals, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other leading security certifications. Naturally, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Still, simply because a certificate does not guarantee excellence is no excuse for not having one. If you know your stuff, then most of these tests should pose no challenge. The point is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then customers expect certifications. Progent will promote your skills, but you should provide a baseline of credentials for us to work with. In case you stand adamantly against the concept of certifications, Progent can understand and honor your position, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

Working with the Top Group of Computer Engineers

Progent's business climate will make you a better consulting professional by enhancing your technical skills and increasing the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the best consulting talent for you to work with, offering an advanced network and communications infrastructure, using custom application utilities to enable the maximum quality of support, and by streamlining our operational models for attracting and maintaining clients.

The most important factor that separates Progent from typical network support companies is the excellence of our support professionals. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have joined Progent, we have recruited top talent covering a wide range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other vital technologies, we deploy experts who can enable you to be successful on larger projects by combining the aggregate experience of our group of professionals.

To promote the success of our consultants, we invest significantly in providing the best tools to perform the work properly. We will leverage technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables seamless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with other Progent team members — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose income with regular drives to a conventional office building, and any driving you do for on-site customer jobs is determined by your time table, not Progent's. The best part is that much of Progent's support services can be done remotely, offering maximum productivity for billable time. In fact, some of our staff do remote consulting exclusively.

Our operations are geared towards responding rapidly and efficiently to customer needs via knowledge exchange and collaborative problem solving. Even though Progent's consultants operate with a high level of freedom, dispatching is unified, customer problems and solutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and organized for easy reference, up-to-date engineer availability is broadcast to facilitate group projects and simplify problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of connection via periodic team meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of our team is located throughout Northern California, however we are attracting a quickly expanding group of consulting experts from across America. Our virtual office environment eliminates regional obstacles that limit the productivity of conventional company structures. We complete the deal by offering a comprehensive benefit plan to ensure the physical health and economic security of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consultants, our marketing and operations groups match the high standards that characterizes Progent. These top-notch factors behind our success are enabling us to identify and land the 50-60 new clients we are now engaging every 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 a strong marketing operation.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of technical challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Customers choose a consultant to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, advanced implementations, vexing or chronic issues, and difficult upgrades are the basis for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for network engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by establishing strong client relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization from top to bottom. If you don’t offer excellent communications skills or like cooperating with a varied group of people, then we are in all likelihood a poor match.

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