Additional Facts About Jobs with Us

Fulltime Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Support Technicians

Progent wants to hire staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco certified system consultants who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security professionals who have CISSP or comparable security credentials; and advanced system architecture consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, service continuity, business continuity, information preservation, and VMware. Progent also is looking for employees to work on Progent's team of desktop service technicians and off-site support experts. In addition, We are seeking experienced managers able to operate productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of skilled and motivated consultants, providing world-class client care, and offering a strong results-based pricing structure, We have been able to increase our customer list dramatically while delivering consulting services to numerous businesses in Northern California and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common knowledge database, and a team strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied client list.

For a network professional with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or helping our clients will expand your skills via cooperation with our group of highly team-oriented, expert consultants. Progent's focus on delivering information technology consulting and computer help to small and midsize organizations will give you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add significantly to the success of exciting companies.

Progent is hiring consultants who have verifiable credentials in their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. In the case of Cisco experts, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should show you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security certifications. Of course, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, simply because a credential can not ensure expertise is no justification for not owning one. If you know your field, then most of those tests should present no great difficulty. The point is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then customers deserve to see certifications. Progent will market your skills, but you should provide a baseline of certifications for Progent to market. If you happen to be strongly against the idea of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are likely not a good fit.

Enhance Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Working with a Great Group of Computer Engineers

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a better consulting professional by improving your technical skills and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the top professional talent for you to operate with, offering an advanced network and communications infrastructure, running custom software utilities to deliver the highest level of service, and by streamlining our business models for finding and maintaining clients.

The most important factor that distinguishes us from ordinary network support firms is the high caliber of our service staff. Among the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited top talent covering a broad range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux, virtual servers, or other crucial technologies, we engage professionals who can help you to be effective on larger jobs by combining the collective skills of our group of experts.

To ensure the success of our team, we invest significantly in providing the best technology to perform the work efficiently. We will exploit information technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office environment enables effortless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with other Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit revenue with daily drives to a conventional office, and any driving you do for in-person client jobs is determined by your time table, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that much of our consulting work can be performed off-site, representing maximum productivity for income-producing time. In fact, some Progent staff do remote support exclusively.

Our operations are geared towards responding rapidly and efficiently to customer requirements through information sharing and cooperative problem solving. Although Progent's consultants operate with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is centralized, client issues and resolutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and organized for easy retrieval, up-to-date engineer availability is published to streamline team projects and simplify trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is always evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation via periodic team meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of Progent's consultants are situated throughout Northern California, however Progent is attracting a rapidly expanding group of consulting experts from across America. Our virtual office environment eliminates geographic boundaries that limit the productivity of conventional company models. We enhance the package by offering a full employee care plan to ensure the health and financial security of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's sales and operations teams live up to the excellence that defines Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s growth are enabling us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are currently engaging every month. Progent recently celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also a strong marketing operation.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with us. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of network challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Clients rely on consulting firms to do the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or entrenched problems, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for computer engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every day enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some great folks, both by establishing close customer contacts and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused organization through and through. If you don’t have excellent people skills or like working with a diverse group of personalities, then Progent is probably not a good fit.

If all this seems good to you, we urge you to contact Progent about our vision of the future of network consulting.
