More Information Concerning Work at Progent

Fulltime Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent wants to hire staff-level, results-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited system consultants who have Cisco CCIE certification; security consultants with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security credentials; and high-end system design experts with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, service continuity, business continuity, data preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for employees who can work on our team of desktop service specialists and off-site troubleshooting experts. Also, Progent is looking for experienced managers who can perform productively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of talented and motivated professionals, delivering world-class customer services, and offering a strong results-focused fee model, Progent has managed to increase our customer base rapidly while providing consulting support to hundreds of companies in Northern California and across the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a common information base, and a team approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied client list.

If you are an information technology professional with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or helping Progent's customers can enhance your knowledge through cooperation with Progent's group of mutually team-oriented, expert engineers. Our focus on delivering information technology expertise and computer support to small companies will offer you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the growth of dynamic businesses.

We are hiring consultants that can show recognized certification related to their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other leading security credentials. Naturally, Progent is aware of "paper experts". Nevertheless, the fact that a certificate does not ensure expertise is no reason for not owning one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of these tests should be no challenge. The point is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then customers expect credentials. We will broadcast your talents, but you need to have a baseline of certifications for Progent to market. If you are adamantly against the concept of credentials, Progent can understand and honor your opinion, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Improve Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Network Engineers

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a more capable professional by enhancing your technical skills and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent makes good on this commitment by recruiting the top professional talent for you to operate with, offering an advanced system architecture, using custom software utilities to deliver the maximum level of service, and by streamlining proven operational structures for finding and keeping customers.

The decisive factor that differentiates Progent from typical network support companies is the high caliber of our support professionals. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have joined Progent, we have recruited the best talent covering a broad range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other key application, we deploy professionals who can help you to be effective on larger jobs by combining the aggregate experience of our group of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's team, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful tools to perform the job efficiently. We will leverage information technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office environment allows seamless connectivity, cooperation, and information exchange with fellow Progent team members — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit income with daily drives to a conventional office building, and all driving you do for on-site client work is based on your schedule, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that much of our consulting work can be done off-site, offering maximum productivity for billable hours. In practice, some Progent staff do off-site consulting exclusively.

Progent's operations are set up for responding rapidly and effectively to customer needs through knowledge sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Even though our consultants work with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is unified, client issues and resolutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and organized for convenient reference, current engineer availability is published to facilitate group projects and simplify problem escalation, and client approval is continually evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation through periodic team conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's consultants are located across California, but Progent is building a rapidly growing group of network professionals throughout America. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic boundaries that restrict the efficiency of conventional business models. We complete the package by providing a full employee care program to promote the health and economic security of our team members and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consulting professionals, our marketing and operations groups match the high standards that is Progent. These top-notch factors behind our growth are helping us to target and sign up the scores of new customers we are currently acquiring every 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 sales operation.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with us. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of network challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Clients choose a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, leading-edge implementations, vexing or entrenched problems, and difficult migrations are the basis for what we do every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for network professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by establishing strong customer contacts and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization through and through. If you don’t offer strong communications skills or like cooperating with a diverse group of personalities, then we are in all likelihood not a good match.

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