Additional Facts About Jobs at Progent

Staff Work for Network Consultants, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire staff-level, solutions-driven Microsoft certified consultants with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco certified system engineers with CCIE credentials; security professionals who have CISM or equivalent security credentials; and high-end system architecture consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high uptime, workplace recovery, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also seeks employees to join our staff of help desk service specialists and remote troubleshooting professionals. Also, We are looking for experienced administrators able to perform productively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of talented and motivated consultants, providing world-class client care, and offering a strong results-based fee model, Progent has managed to expand our client base dramatically while providing consulting services to hundreds of companies in Northern California and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common knowledge database, and a team strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a loyal client list.

For a network consultant with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or helping our clients will enhance your skills through interaction with Progent's staff of highly supportive, expert consultants. Our commitment to providing network expertise and computer help to small and midsize companies will give you the opportunity to work intimately with key players and add appreciably to the growth of exciting companies.

We are looking for consultants that have recognized certification in their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. In the case of Cisco experts, have your CCIE 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, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” However, the fact that a certificate can not guarantee expertise is no reason for not earning one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of those tests should present no great difficulty. The point is that if you are a professional, then customers expect credentials. We can promote your talents, but you need to provide basic credentials for Progent to market. In case you are strongly against the idea of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are probably not a good fit.

Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the top professional experts for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art system architecture, using custom application tools to enable the highest level of support, and by streamlining our business models for attracting and retaining customers.

To promote the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful tools to perform the work properly. Progent will leverage information technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows effortless communications, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with other Progent team members — all from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of regular drives to a conventional office, and any driving you do for on-site customer work is based on your schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that most of Progent's consulting services can be performed remotely, offering maximum productivity for income-producing time. In fact, some of our team members do off-site support exclusively.

Progent's business structure is geared towards reacting quickly and efficiently to client requirements through information exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Even though our engineers operate with a high level of independence, dispatching is unified, client issues and solutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and archived for easy reference, current consultant schedules are broadcast to facilitate team projects and enable trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually monitored. We reinforce the sense of cooperation through periodic team conferences and quarterly corporate events.

Most of Progent's team is located across California, however Progent is attracting a quickly expanding team of consulting experts from across the United States. Our virtual office environment does away with regional obstacles that restrict the efficiency of conventional company structures. We enhance the package by offering a comprehensive employee care program to promote the health and financial security of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consulting professionals, our marketing and operations teams live up to the excellence that characterizes Progent. These high-performance factors behind our success are helping us to target and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are currently acquiring each month. We recently celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing operation.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a key for success with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of network challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Clients rely on consultants to do the toughest jobs. Creative projects, advanced implementations, puzzling or entrenched issues, and tricky upgrades are the basis for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some great folks, both by building close customer relationships and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented organization heart and soul. If you do not have excellent communications skills or enjoy working with a diverse assortment of personalities, then we are probably a poor fit.

If this seems right for you, we urge you to contact us about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.
