More Information Concerning Jobs at Progent

Career Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent wants to hire full-time, results-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP certification; Cisco accredited system consultants with Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security consultants who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security certification; and advanced network design consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, disaster recovery, data protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for employees who can work on our team of helpdesk support specialists and off-site support professionals. Also, Progent is hiring experienced administrators able to operate effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of talented and motivated professionals, delivering attentive client services, and following a strong value-focused fee structure, Progent has managed to expand our client base dramatically while delivering consulting support to hundreds of companies in Northern California and across the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a common information database, and a group approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a loyal client list.

For an information technology professional with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or helping our clients will enhance your knowledge through interaction with our group of highly team-oriented, talented consultants. Progent's commitment to delivering network expertise and computer help to small and midsize organizations will offer you the opportunity to work intimately with key players and add appreciably to the growth of dynamic companies.

Progent is looking for technical professionals that can show verifiable certification related to their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft MCSE certificate. For Cisco professionals, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP credential. For network security, you should show you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security credentials. Naturally, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". However, the fact that a credential does not guarantee expertise is no excuse for not earning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of these tests should be no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then customers deserve to see credentials. We will broadcast your skills, but you should provide basic credentials for us to work with. If you happen to be strongly against the idea of credentials, we can understand and honor your position, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Enhance Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Computer Engineers

Progent's business climate will make you a more capable consulting professional by enhancing your information technology skills and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the best professional talent for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, running custom software tools to enable the highest level of service, and by optimizing our business structures for attracting and keeping customers.

The most important factor that distinguishes Progent from most network support firms is the high quality of our support professionals. Out of the scores of consultants who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled top talent covering a wide array of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other vital application, we deploy experts who can help you to be effective on larger jobs by combining the aggregate skills of Progent's team of experts.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in making available the best technology to do the job efficiently. Progent will leverage information technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office environment allows seamless communications, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent team members — entirely from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit revenue because of daily commutes to a conventional office, and any driving you do for in-person customer work is determined by your own schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that much of Progent's support services can be performed off-site, representing maximum efficiency for income-producing hours. In fact, some Progent staff do remote consulting only.

Progent's operations are set up for reacting quickly and efficiently to customer needs via information sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Although our consultants operate with a high level of independence, resource allocation is centralized, customer issues and solutions are carefully tracked, documented, and archived for easy reference, current consultant schedules are published to streamline team tasks and enable problem escalation, and client satisfaction is always evaluated. We reinforce the sense of cooperation via periodic workgroup conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of our team is situated across Northern California, but we are building a rapidly growing group of network professionals throughout America. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic obstacles that limit the efficiency of conventional company structures. We enhance the package by providing a full employee care plan to ensure the physical health and financial welfare of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's sales and administration teams live up to the excellence that is Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s success are helping us to target and land the 50-60 new clients we are currently acquiring every month. We recently celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with us. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a continual series of technical challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Clients choose consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or chronic problems, and tricky migrations are the basis for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for network engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every morning excited about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some great folks, both by establishing strong customer contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented company through and through. If you do not offer excellent communications skills or enjoy working with a varied group of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor match.

If all this sounds right for you, we urge you to talk to us about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.

Enjoy Quality of Life Improvements and Technical Success with
Progent's Advanced Virtual Office Environment

Progent is convinced that a well designed and executed network is a pivotal factor for enabling a firm's success, and we apply this credo in our own system infrastructure. We have built a zero-downtime virtual office infrastructure that allows Progent's staff consultants and authorized contractors to offer rapid and effective service, cooperate easily on complex jobs, and experience professional and private growth from acting as part of an exciting company culture of personal drive and freedom.
