Additional Facts About Jobs at Progent

Staff Jobs for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent wants to hire full-time, results-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco certified network engineers who have Cisco CCIE credentials; security professionals who have CISM or comparable security credentials; and advanced system design consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, high uptime, disaster recovery, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also seeks employees to join Progent's staff of help desk support technicians and off-site support professionals. Also, Progent is seeking talented managers who can operate productively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of talented and dedicated professionals, delivering attentive customer services, and following a strong value-based fee structure, Progent has been able to increase our client list rapidly while providing professional services to numerous companies in Northern California and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared knowledge database, and a team strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a satisfied client list.

If you are a network professional with technical support experience, joining Progent or working for our clients can expand your knowledge via interaction with Progent's staff of mutually supportive, expert engineers. Our commitment to delivering network expertise and computer help to small and midsize organizations will offer you the opportunity to collaborate closely with key players and add significantly to the success of dynamic businesses.

Progent is hiring technical professionals that can show recognized certification related to their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. In the case of Cisco experts, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or one of the other leading security credentials. Naturally, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, the fact that a certificate does not guarantee expertise is no reason for not owning one. If you know your field, then most of these certifications should pose no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you are a professional, then customers expect certifications. We will promote your skills, but you must have basic credentials for Progent to work with. If you happen to be strongly opposed to the idea of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

Enhance Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Computer Engineers

Progent's business climate will make you a more capable professional by enhancing your information technology skills and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the top professional talent for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art system architecture, running proprietary software utilities to deliver the maximum level of support, and by streamlining our business structures for finding and keeping customers.

The decisive factor that separates us from ordinary network support firms is the quality of our support professionals. Among the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have recruited the best talent across a broad array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other vital areas, we engage professionals who can enable you to be effective on major projects by combining the aggregate experience of Progent's team of experts.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's team, we invest heavily in making available the best tools to perform the work efficiently. Progent will exploit information technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables seamless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with other Progent team members — all from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit income because of daily commutes to a physical office building, and all travel you do for in-person client work is based on your own schedule, not ours. The best part is that much of our consulting work can be done remotely, representing maximum efficiency for billable hours. In fact, some Progent team members do off-site consulting exclusively.

Our operations are set up for reacting quickly and effectively to client needs through knowledge sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Although Progent's consultants operate with a high level of freedom, dispatching is unified, client issues and resolutions are carefully tracked, documented, and archived for easy retrieval, current consultant schedules are broadcast to facilitate group projects and simplify problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is always monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation through periodic team conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of our consultants are located throughout Northern California, however Progent is building a quickly growing team of consulting experts from across the U.S. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional boundaries that limit the efficiency of traditional business models. We enhance the package by providing a full benefit program to promote the health and financial welfare of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, our sales and administration teams match the excellence that characterizes Progent. These top-notch contributors to our growth are enabling us to target and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are now engaging each month. Progent lately celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective sales organization.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for success with us. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of network challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Clients rely on a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Creative projects, leading-edge implementations, vexing or entrenched issues, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for computer engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will work with some great folks, both by building strong customer relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused organization from top to bottom. If you don’t offer excellent communications skills or like working with a diverse assortment of people, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good fit.

If all this seems good to you, we urge you to talk to Progent about our view of the future of network consulting.
