Additional Facts About Jobs at Progent

Fulltime Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Professionals

Progent wants to hire full-time, results-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco certified system engineers with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security consultants with CISA or comparable security certification; and advanced network architecture experts with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, workplace recovery, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for professionals to join Progent's staff of help desk support technicians and off-site troubleshooting experts. In addition, We are seeking talented administrators who can perform effectively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of skilled and dedicated consultants, delivering attentive customer services, and following a strong value-based fee model, We have managed to increase our customer base rapidly while providing professional support to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared knowledge database, and a team strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a skilled staff and a loyal client list.

If you are a network consultant with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or working for our customers can enhance your knowledge through cooperation with Progent's staff of highly team-oriented, talented engineers. Our focus on providing network expertise and computer help to small and midsize organizations will give you the chance to work closely with key players and contribute appreciably to the success of exciting businesses.

We are looking for technical professionals that can show recognized credentials related to their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should show you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security credentials. Of course, we are familiar with "paper experts". Nevertheless, the fact that a credential can not guarantee expertise is no justification for not earning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of these tests should pose no challenge. The point is that if you are a professional, then customers deserve to see credentials. We will market your skills, but you should provide standard certifications for Progent to market. If you stand adamantly opposed to the idea of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

Enhance Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Working with the Top Team of Network Consultants

Progent's company culture will make you a better consultant by enhancing your information technology knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the best consulting experts for you to work with, offering an advanced network and communications architecture, running proprietary application tools to deliver the highest quality of service, and by streamlining our business structures for attracting and maintaining clients.

The decisive factor that differentiates us from most network support companies is the high quality of our support professionals. Among the 50 or so consultants who have joined us, we have assembled the best expertise covering a wide range of technologies. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux, VMware, or other vital application, we engage professionals who can help you to be effective on larger projects by leveraging the aggregate experience of Progent's group of experts.

To promote the productivity of our consultants, we invest heavily in making available the best tools to do the work efficiently. Progent will leverage information technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office environment allows seamless communications, cooperation, and information sharing with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit income with daily drives to a physical office building, and all driving you do for in-person customer work is determined by your time table, not ours. The most attractive part is that much of our consulting services can be performed remotely, representing maximum efficiency for income-producing hours. In fact, some of our staff do remote support exclusively.

Our business structure is geared towards reacting rapidly and effectively to client needs via knowledge exchange and collaborative problem solving. Even though Progent's engineers work with a high level of freedom, dispatching is unified, customer issues and resolutions are carefully tracked, documented, and archived for convenient retrieval, up-to-date consultant schedules are broadcast to streamline group tasks and simplify problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is always evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of connection through monthly team conferences and regular company-wide events.

Most of our consultants are situated across Northern California, however Progent is building a rapidly growing group of network professionals throughout the United States. Progent's virtual office environment eliminates regional obstacles that restrict the productivity of traditional business models. We complete the deal by providing a comprehensive employee care program to ensure the health and economic security of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, our marketing and administration teams match the excellence that defines Progent. These high-performance contributors to our success are enabling us to target and land the scores of new customers we are now engaging each month. Progent lately celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective sales organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with us. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a steady series of technical challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Clients choose a consultant to perform the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or chronic problems, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for computer professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by establishing strong client contacts and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization from top to bottom. If you do not offer strong people skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied assortment of personalities, then Progent is probably a poor match.

If this seems good to you, we urge you to contact us about our view of the future of information technology consulting.
