Details About Opportunities at Progent

Staff Work for Network Engineers, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent wants to hire fulltime, results-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited network engineers who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security professionals with CISA or comparable security credentials; and high-end network architecture consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, disaster recovery, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for employees to join Progent's staff of help desk support specialists and off-site troubleshooting experts. Also, We are looking for experienced managers able to perform effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of skilled and motivated professionals, delivering world-class client services, and following a competitive value-based pricing model, We have been able to increase our customer base rapidly while delivering consulting support to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a common information base, and a team strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a satisfied client base.

For an information technology professional with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or helping our clients will expand your skills through cooperation with Progent's group of highly supportive, expert engineers. Our focus on providing information technology consulting and technical help to small companies will give you the opportunity to work intimately with key players and contribute appreciably to the success of dynamic businesses.

Progent is looking for consultants that can show verifiable credentials related to their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. For Cisco professionals, have your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security credentials. Of course, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, simply because a certificate does not guarantee expertise is no excuse for not earning one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of those tests should be no great difficulty. The point is that if you are a professional, then clients expect certifications. We will broadcast your skills, but you should have standard certifications for Progent to work with. If you are strongly against the idea of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

Working with the Top Group of Computer Consultants

Progent's company culture will make you a better professional by improving your information technology skills and increasing the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the best consulting talent for you to work with, offering an advanced network and communications architecture, running specialized software tools to enable the maximum quality of service, and by streamlining proven business structures for finding and maintaining clients.

The decisive factor that separates Progent from ordinary consulting firms is the excellence of our consulting team. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined us, we have recruited the best expertise across a wide range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Macintosh, Linux, server virtualization, or other key application, we deploy experts who can enable you to be effective on larger jobs by combining the collective experience of Progent's group of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of our team, we invest significantly in providing the best tools to do the work properly. We will exploit technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office environment allows seamless connectivity, cooperation, and information sharing with other Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of regular drives to a conventional office, and any driving you do for in-person client jobs is determined by your own schedule, not Progent's. The best benefit is that most of Progent's support services can be performed remotely, offering 100% productivity for income-producing hours. In practice, some Progent team members do off-site support exclusively.

Progent's business structure is geared towards reacting quickly and efficiently to customer requirements via knowledge exchange and cooperative problem solving. Although Progent's consultants work with a high level of freedom, dispatching is centralized, client issues and resolutions are carefully tracked, documented, and archived for easy reference, current consultant availability is broadcast to facilitate team tasks and simplify problem escalation, and client satisfaction is always monitored. We reinforce the feeling of connection via monthly team meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of our consultants are situated throughout Northern California, but we are attracting a quickly expanding group of consulting experts throughout the U.S. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with regional obstacles that restrict the efficiency of traditional company models. We enhance the deal by offering a full benefit program to promote the health and economic security of our employees and their families.

Just as we have awesome consultants, our marketing and administration teams live up to the high standards that characterizes Progent. These high-performance contributors to our growth are enabling us to target and land the 50-60 new clients we are currently acquiring every month. Progent lately marked the providing 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 marketing organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in information technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of technical challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Customers rely on consulting firms to do the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, leading-edge deployments, vexing or entrenched issues, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for our services every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for computer engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning excited about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some great folks, both by establishing close customer contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused company from top to bottom. If you don’t offer strong communications skills or like cooperating with a diverse group of personalities, then we are probably a poor match.

If this sounds right for you, we invite you to contact Progent about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
