Additional Facts About Jobs at Progent

Career Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to find staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco accredited system consultants who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security consultants who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security certification; and advanced network architecture consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, fault tolerance, business continuity, information preservation, and VMware. Progent also seeks employees who can join Progent's staff of desktop support technicians and remote troubleshooting professionals. In addition, Progent is seeking talented managers who can perform effectively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of skilled and motivated consultants, providing attentive client services, and offering a strong results-focused fee model, Progent has managed to expand our client list rapidly while delivering professional services to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and across the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared information base, and a team approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a talented staff and a loyal client list.

If you are a network consultant with technical support expertise, joining Progent or working for our clients can enhance your knowledge via cooperation with our staff of mutually team-oriented, expert consultants. Our focus on delivering information technology expertise and technical help to small and midsize companies will offer you the chance to collaborate closely with decision makers and add significantly to the success of exciting companies.

We are hiring consultants that have verifiable credentials related to their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco consultants, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other top security credentials. Of course, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, the fact that a credential does not guarantee expertise is no excuse for not having one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of those certifications should be no challenge. The point is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then customers deserve to see certifications. We will broadcast your skills, but you need to have basic credentials for Progent to market. In case you stand strongly opposed to the idea of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

Enhance Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining the Top Group of Network Engineers

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a more capable consulting professional by improving your information technology skills and increasing the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the top professional talent for you to operate with, offering an advanced system infrastructure, running specialized software utilities to deliver the maximum quality of service, and by optimizing our operational structures for attracting and keeping customers.

The main factor that differentiates Progent from other network support firms is the high caliber of our service staff. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with us, we have assembled top expertise covering a wide range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Apple, Linux, VMware, or other key areas, we deploy experts who can help you to be effective on larger jobs by combining the collective skills of Progent's team of experts.

To promote the productivity of Progent's team, we invest significantly in making available the best tools to do the work efficiently. Progent will exploit information technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables effortless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent team members — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of daily commutes to a conventional office, and any travel you do for in-person customer jobs is based on your own schedule, not ours. The most attractive part is that much of Progent's consulting services can be performed off-site, offering maximum efficiency for billable time. In practice, some of our staff do off-site consulting exclusively.

Progent's operations are geared towards responding rapidly and efficiently to customer needs through information sharing and cooperative problem solving. Although Progent's consultants work with a great deal of independence, dispatching is unified, customer issues and resolutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and archived for easy reference, current engineer availability is broadcast to facilitate team tasks and enable trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is always evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of connection through monthly workgroup meetings and regular corporate events.

Most of our team is situated across Northern California, but we are attracting a rapidly expanding group of network experts throughout the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic obstacles that restrict the productivity of conventional business structures. We complete the package by offering a comprehensive benefit plan to ensure the physical health and financial security of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, our sales and administration teams match the high standards that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s success are enabling us to target and sign up the scores of new clients we are currently engaging each month. We recently marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective marketing organization.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with us. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of network challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Customers rely on consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or entrenched problems, and difficult migrations are the basis for our services every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for computer professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by establishing close customer relationships and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused company through and through. If you do not offer excellent communications skills or like working with a varied assortment of people, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good match.

If this sounds good to you, we invite you to contact us about our vision of the future of network consulting.
