Additional Facts Concerning Opportunities with Us

Career Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Service Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Support Professionals

Progent wants to hire full-time, results-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited system engineers with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security professionals with CISA or comparable security certification; and high-end system design experts with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, high uptime, workplace recovery, information preservation, and VMware. Progent also is looking for professionals to join our team of desktop service specialists and off-site troubleshooting professionals. Also, We are seeking talented managers able to operate productively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of talented and motivated professionals, delivering attentive client care, and following a competitive results-based fee structure, Progent has been able to expand our customer list dramatically while delivering professional services to numerous businesses in Northern California and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a shared information database, and a group strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a talented staff and a satisfied customer list.

For a network professional with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or working for our customers will enhance your knowledge through interaction with our staff of highly team-oriented, expert engineers. Our commitment to providing network expertise and computer support to small companies will give you the opportunity to work intimately with key players and contribute appreciably to the success of exciting companies.

Progent is hiring technical professionals who have recognized credentials in their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your Microsoft MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco professionals, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP credential. For network security, you should have you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security certifications. Of course, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” Still, the fact that a credential can not guarantee expertise is no justification for not earning one. If you know your field, then the majority of these certifications should present no challenge. The bottom line is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then clients deserve to see credentials. We will broadcast your talents, but you need to provide a baseline of credentials for us to market. In case you happen to be strongly against the idea of certifications, we can understand and honor your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Enhance Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Working with a Great Team of Network Engineers

Progent's company culture will allow you to become a more capable consultant by improving your technical knowledge and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the best professional experts for you to operate with, offering an advanced network and communications infrastructure, running proprietary software utilities to deliver the maximum quality of service, and by streamlining proven business models for attracting and maintaining clients.

The most important factor that differentiates Progent from other consulting firms is the quality of our consultants. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled the best expertise across a wide array of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other key areas, we engage experts who can enable you to be effective on major jobs by leveraging the collective skills of Progent's team of experts.

To promote the productivity of our team, we invest heavily in making available the best tools to do the work properly. Progent will leverage technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables effortless connectivity, collaboration, and information sharing with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose income with regular commutes to a physical office, and all travel you do for in-person client jobs is determined by your own schedule, not Progent's. The best benefit is that much of Progent's support services can be done off-site, representing 100% efficiency for billable time. In practice, some of our staff do off-site support exclusively.

Our business structure is geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to client needs via knowledge sharing and collaborative problem solving. Even though Progent's consultants operate with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is unified, client problems and solutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and archived for convenient reference, current consultant schedules are published to streamline group projects and simplify trouble escalation, and client approval is always evaluated. We reinforce the sense of connection through monthly workgroup meetings and quarterly corporate events.

The majority of Progent's team is situated across Northern California, however Progent is building a rapidly growing team of consulting professionals from across America. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic boundaries that restrict the efficiency of traditional company structures. We enhance the deal by offering a comprehensive benefit plan to ensure the physical health and economic welfare of our team members and their families.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and operations groups live up to the high standards that is Progent. These top-notch factors behind our success are enabling us to target and sign up the scores of new customers we are currently acquiring every month. We lately marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for success with us. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a steady series of network challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Clients choose consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or entrenched problems, and difficult migrations are the foundation for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for network engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning excited about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by building strong customer relationships and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their success. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused company from top to bottom. If you do not offer strong people skills or enjoy working with a varied assortment of personalities, then Progent is probably a poor fit.

If all this sounds right for you, we invite you to contact us about our view of the future of information technology consulting.
