Additional Facts About Jobs at Progent

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

Progent is seeking to hire full-time, results-driven Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco certified network consultants who have Cisco CCIE credentials; security consultants with CISA or equivalent security credentials; and advanced system architecture consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high uptime, business continuity, information protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring employees who can work on our staff of help desk service technicians and remote troubleshooting professionals. Also, Progent is hiring experienced managers able to operate effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of skilled and dedicated consultants, providing world-class customer care, and following a strong results-based fee model, Progent has been able to increase our customer base dramatically while providing consulting support to numerous businesses in Northern California and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common knowledge database, and a team approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a skilled staff and a satisfied customer base.

For a network consultant with technical support experience, joining Progent or helping Progent's clients will enhance your knowledge via interaction with Progent's group of highly supportive, talented consultants. Our focus on delivering network consulting and technical support to small organizations will offer you the chance to work intimately with decision makers and add significantly to the success of exciting businesses.

Progent is looking for technical professionals that have recognized certification in their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your Microsoft MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco consultants, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP credential. For network security, you should show you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other leading security certifications. Of course, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, the fact that a certificate does not ensure expertise is no reason for not earning one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of these tests should be no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients expect certifications. Progent will promote your talents, but you must provide standard certifications for Progent to market. In case you stand adamantly opposed to the concept of credentials, we can understand and honor your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

The best part is that most of our consulting services can be performed off-site, representing 100% productivity for income-producing hours. In practice, some Progent staff do remote consulting only.

Progent's operations are geared towards responding quickly and effectively to client requirements via information exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Even though Progent's engineers work with a high level of freedom, dispatching is centralized, client problems and solutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and organized for convenient reference, up-to-date engineer schedules are published to streamline team projects and simplify trouble escalation, and client approval is always evaluated.

A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being exposed to a continual series of technical challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Customers rely on a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Creative projects, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or chronic problems, and difficult migrations are the basis for what we do daily.

Along the way, you will meet some great people, both by establishing strong client contacts and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization through and through.
