Additional Facts About Work at Progent

Staff Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent wants to hire fulltime, solutions-driven Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco accredited network engineers who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security professionals with CISSP or equivalent security credentials; and high-end system architecture experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high availability, workplace recovery, information protection, and VMware. Progent also seeks employees who can work on Progent's team of desktop service specialists and remote troubleshooting professionals. In addition, We are looking for experienced managers able to perform effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of skilled and motivated consultants, providing world-class customer services, and offering a competitive results-focused fee structure, Progent has been able to expand our customer list dramatically while delivering consulting services to hundreds of companies in Northern California and across the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a common knowledge database, and a group approach to problem solving have helped Progent to retain a talented staff and a satisfied customer base.

For an information technology professional with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's clients will enhance your skills via interaction with our staff of highly supportive, talented engineers. Our focus on providing network expertise and technical help to small and midsize companies will offer you the chance to collaborate closely with decision makers and add appreciably to the growth of dynamic businesses.

Progent is looking for consultants who have verifiable credentials in their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your MCSE certificate. For Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security certifications. Of course, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, simply because a certificate can not guarantee excellence is no excuse for not earning one. If you know your field, then the majority of these tests should present no challenge. The bottom line is that if you are a professional, then customers deserve to see credentials. Progent can broadcast your skills, but you need to provide a baseline of credentials for us to work with. If you stand adamantly against the idea of credentials, Progent can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Working with a Great Team of Network Consultants

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a better professional by improving your technical skills and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the best consulting experts for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications infrastructure, running proprietary software tools to enable the maximum quality of service, and by optimizing proven business structures for finding and keeping clients.

The most important factor that differentiates Progent from ordinary consulting firms is the high quality of our service staff. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined Progent, we have assembled the best talent covering a broad array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux, virtual servers, or other vital technologies, we deploy professionals who can help you to be effective on larger jobs by combining the aggregate skills of our group of professionals.

To promote the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in making available the best technology to perform the work properly. Progent will exploit information technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables effortless communications, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent team members — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or lose income with daily drives to a physical office, and all travel you do for on-site customer work is determined by your own time table, not ours. The best part is that much of our consulting work can be performed remotely, offering maximum efficiency for billable hours. In practice, some Progent staff do off-site support only.

Progent's operations are set up for reacting rapidly and effectively to client needs via information exchange and cooperative problem solving. Even though Progent's consultants operate with a high level of independence, resource allocation is centralized, customer issues and solutions are carefully monitored, documented, and organized for convenient retrieval, up-to-date consultant schedules are published to streamline group tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually evaluated. We reinforce the sense of connection via monthly team meetings and regular corporate events.

The majority of our team is situated across California, however we are attracting a rapidly expanding team of consulting professionals from across the United States. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional boundaries that limit the efficiency of traditional business structures. We enhance the deal by providing a full employee care program to promote the health and financial security of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consultants, our sales and administration teams live up to the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to our growth are helping us to identify and land the 50-60 new clients we are currently engaging each month. Progent lately marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing operation.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a key for growth with us. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a steady series of technical challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Clients choose consultants to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, leading-edge implementations, vexing or chronic issues, and tricky migrations are the basis for our services every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for network professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every day excited about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by building strong client relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused company through and through. If you do not offer strong people skills or like working with a varied group of people, then we are probably a poor match.

If this sounds right for you, we urge you to talk to us about our vision of the future of network consulting.
