Additional Facts Concerning Opportunities at Progent

Staff Work for Network Engineers, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco certified network consultants with Cisco CCIE certification; security consultants with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security credentials; and high-end system design experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high availability, disaster recovery, information preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks professionals to join Progent's team of help desk support specialists and off-site troubleshooting experts. In addition, Progent is hiring experienced managers who can operate productively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of skilled and dedicated consultants, providing world-class customer services, and offering a strong value-focused pricing model, We have been able to expand our client list rapidly while providing professional services to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common knowledge database, and a team strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a loyal customer base.

For an information technology consultant with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or working for our clients will enhance your skills via cooperation with Progent's group of mutually supportive, talented engineers. Progent's focus on delivering information technology expertise and computer support to small and midsize organizations will give you the opportunity to collaborate closely with key players and add appreciably to the success of exciting companies.

We are hiring technical professionals that can show verifiable certification related to their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco consultants, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security certifications. Naturally, we are aware of "paper experts". Still, simply because a certificate can not ensure excellence is no excuse for not earning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of these certifications should be no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers deserve to see certifications. Progent can broadcast your talents, but you need to provide basic credentials for us to work with. If you stand adamantly against the idea of certifications, Progent can understand and respect your position, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

Improve Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Working with a Great Team of Network Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a more capable consulting professional by improving your technical skills and increasing the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this commitment by recruiting the top professional experts for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, running proprietary software tools to enable the highest quality of service, and by optimizing proven business models for finding and maintaining clients.

The most important factor that differentiates us from most network support firms is the high quality of our consulting team. Among the scores of consultants who have joined us, we have assembled the best talent covering a wide array of technical areas. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Apple, Linux, server virtualization, or other vital technologies, we deploy experts who can help you to be successful on major projects by combining the aggregate skills of our team of experts.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful tools to do the job properly. Progent will exploit information technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows seamless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with other Progent team members — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or lose revenue because of regular commutes to a conventional office building, and any travel you do for in-person client work is determined by your own schedule, not ours. The best benefit is that most of our consulting services can be performed remotely, offering maximum efficiency for billable hours. In practice, some Progent staff do off-site consulting exclusively.

Progent's business structure is set up for reacting rapidly and effectively to client requirements via information sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Although Progent's engineers operate with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is unified, customer issues and solutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for convenient retrieval, up-to-date engineer schedules are published to streamline team tasks and simplify problem escalation, and client satisfaction is continually evaluated. We strengthen the sense of cooperation through periodic team meetings and quarterly corporate events.

The majority of our consultants are located across Northern California, but we are attracting a quickly expanding group of consulting professionals from across the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional boundaries that restrict the efficiency of conventional company structures. We complete the deal by providing a full employee care program to ensure the physical health and economic welfare of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, Progent's marketing and operations teams live up to the excellence that characterizes Progent. These top-notch factors behind our growth are enabling us to identify and land the 50-60 new clients we are now acquiring each month. Progent lately celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing operation.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with us. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a steady series of technical challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Clients rely on consulting firms to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, leading-edge implementations, vexing or entrenched problems, and difficult migrations are the foundation for our services every day. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for network professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every day excited about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by building strong customer relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused organization from top to bottom. If you do not offer excellent communications skills or like cooperating with a diverse assortment of people, then we are in all likelihood not a good fit.

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

Get Lifestyle Improvements and Professional Prowess with
Our Sophisticated Virtual Office Environment

Progent is convinced that a well designed and implemented information system is a crucial piece for enabling any firm's growth, and Progent follows this credo in our own system infrastructure.
