Details About Work at Progent

Fulltime Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent wants to hire staff-level, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco accredited network engineers with Cisco CCIE certification; security consultants with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security certification; and high-end system design consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, fault tolerance, disaster recovery, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also seeks professionals who can work on Progent's team of desktop service technicians and remote support experts. Also, Progent is seeking talented managers who can operate effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of talented and motivated consultants, providing world-class customer care, and offering a competitive value-based pricing model, We have managed to increase our client base rapidly while delivering professional support to numerous businesses in Northern California and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a common knowledge base, and a group strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied customer list.

For an information technology consultant with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's clients can enhance your knowledge via cooperation with Progent's group of highly supportive, talented consultants. Progent's commitment to delivering network consulting and computer help to small companies will offer you the chance to work intimately with decision makers and contribute significantly to the success of dynamic businesses.

We are hiring consultants that can show recognized certification in their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE certificate. For Cisco consultants, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should show you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or one of the other top security certifications. Of course, we are familiar with "paper experts". Nevertheless, the fact that a credential can not ensure excellence is no justification for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then most of those certifications should present no challenge. The point is that if you are an expert, then customers deserve to see certifications. We can broadcast your skills, but you must have standard certifications for Progent to market. If you happen to be adamantly opposed to the concept of credentials, Progent can understand and respect your opinion, but you are probably not a good candidate.

Enhance Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's company culture will make you a more capable consultant by enhancing your information technology knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the top consulting talent for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art system architecture, running specialized software tools to enable the maximum quality of support, and by streamlining proven business models for finding and maintaining clients.

The decisive factor that separates Progent from other consulting companies is the high quality of our support professionals. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have joined us, we have assembled top talent across a wide array of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other crucial technologies, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be successful on larger projects by leveraging the aggregate experience of our group of experts.

To promote the productivity of Progent's team, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful tools to do the job properly. Progent will leverage information technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office environment allows seamless communications, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with other Progent team members — entirely from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or lose income because of regular commutes to a physical office building, and all driving you do for on-site customer work is based on your time table, not ours. The best part is that most of Progent's consulting services can be done off-site, representing 100% productivity for billable time. In practice, some Progent staff do off-site support exclusively.

Progent's business structure is geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to customer requirements via information sharing and collaborative problem solving. Even though Progent's engineers operate with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is unified, client issues and resolutions are carefully tracked, documented, and organized for convenient reference, up-to-date consultant schedules are broadcast to streamline group tasks and simplify problem escalation, and client satisfaction is always evaluated. We reinforce the sense of cooperation via monthly team conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of Progent's team is situated across Northern California, however Progent is building a rapidly expanding group of network experts from across the United States. Our virtual office environment eliminates regional obstacles that limit the efficiency of traditional business models. We complete the package by providing a full benefit program to ensure the physical health and economic security of our team members and their families.

Just as we have world-class consultants, our marketing and operations teams live up to the high standards that characterizes Progent. These top-notch contributors to our success are enabling us to target and land the 50-60 new customers we are currently engaging each month. We lately marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective sales operation.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for success with us. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a steady series of technical challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Clients choose consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, advanced deployments, puzzling or chronic problems, and difficult migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for network professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every day enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will work with some great folks, both by establishing close client relationships and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused organization from top to bottom. If you don’t have strong people skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied group of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor match.

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

Enjoy Quality of Life Benefits and Technical Success with
Our Sophisticated Virtual Office Environment

Progent believes that a carefully designed and executed network can be a pivotal piece for accelerating any company's success, and Progent applies this belief in our own network infrastructure.
