Additional Facts Concerning Opportunities with Us

Career Work for Network Engineers, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Help Professionals

Progent wants to find full-time, results-driven Microsoft certified engineers with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited network consultants with CCIE credentials; security consultants with CISA or equivalent security certification; and high-end network architecture experts with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, fault tolerance, workplace recovery, data protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring employees to work on Progent's team of desktop support technicians and remote troubleshooting experts. In addition, Progent is hiring talented managers able to perform effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of talented and motivated consultants, providing world-class client care, and offering a strong value-focused pricing model, We have been able to increase our customer base rapidly while delivering consulting support to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common knowledge database, and a group strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a skilled staff and a loyal client base.

For an information technology consultant with troubleshooting experience, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's clients can enhance your skills via cooperation with Progent's group of highly supportive, talented engineers. Progent's commitment to providing network consulting and technical help to small and midsize companies will offer you the opportunity to collaborate closely with decision makers and add significantly to the growth of exciting businesses.

Progent is hiring technical professionals that can show verifiable credentials in their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. In the case of Cisco consultants, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or other leading security certifications. Naturally, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Notwithstanding, the fact that a credential does not guarantee excellence is no excuse for not earning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of these certifications should present no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you are an expert, then customers deserve to see certifications. We will broadcast your talents, but you need to provide a baseline of certifications for Progent to work with. If you happen to be adamantly against the concept of credentials, we can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are probably not a good candidate.

Enhance Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Network Engineers

Progent's company culture will allow you to become a more capable consulting professional by enhancing your information technology knowledge and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the best consulting experts for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, using proprietary software utilities to enable the highest quality of support, and by optimizing proven operational structures for attracting and retaining clients.

The decisive factor that separates Progent from typical consulting firms is the quality of our support professionals. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with us, we have assembled the best expertise across a wide range of technologies. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other crucial technologies, we engage professionals who can enable you to be successful on major jobs by leveraging the collective skills of our team of experts.

To ensure the success of our consultants, we invest heavily in making available the best tools to perform the job efficiently. We will exploit technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office environment allows effortless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with other Progent team members — all from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose income with daily commutes to a conventional office, and all travel you do for on-site client work is determined by your schedule, not Progent's. The best benefit is that much of Progent's support services can be performed remotely, offering 100% efficiency for billable time. In fact, some of our team members do off-site support exclusively.

Our operations are set up for responding quickly and efficiently to client needs via knowledge exchange and cooperative problem solving. Even though our engineers operate with a high level of independence, dispatching is centralized, customer issues and solutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and organized for easy retrieval, current engineer availability is broadcast to streamline group tasks and enable problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is always evaluated. We strengthen the sense of connection through periodic workgroup conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of our consultants are situated across Northern California, however Progent is attracting a rapidly expanding team of consulting experts throughout the United States. Our virtual office environment eliminates regional obstacles that restrict the efficiency of conventional company models. We enhance the deal by offering a full employee care plan to ensure the physical health and economic security of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consultants, Progent's marketing and operations groups live up to the excellence that characterizes Progent. These high-performance contributors to our growth are enabling us to target and sign up the scores of new customers we are now engaging each month. We recently marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing operation.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a key for success with us. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of network challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Clients rely on consulting firms to do the toughest jobs. Creative projects, leading-edge deployments, vexing or chronic issues, and tricky migrations are the basis for what we do daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every morning excited about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by establishing close client contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused company from top to bottom. If you don’t offer strong communications skills or enjoy working with a diverse group of people, then Progent is probably not a good fit.

If this seems good to you, we invite you to talk to Progent about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
