Additional Facts Concerning Opportunities at Progent

Career Work for Network Consultants, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire staff-level, results-driven Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP certification; Cisco accredited network engineers with Cisco CCIE or CCNP credentials; security professionals with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security credentials; and high-end system design consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high uptime, disaster recovery, information preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks professionals who can work on our team of helpdesk service technicians and off-site troubleshooting professionals. In addition, We are hiring talented administrators able to perform productively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of talented and motivated professionals, providing attentive client services, and following a strong value-focused pricing model, We have been able to increase our customer list rapidly while providing consulting support to numerous businesses in Northern California and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common knowledge database, and a group strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a satisfied client list.

If you are a network professional with technical support expertise, joining Progent or working for Progent's customers can expand your knowledge through interaction with our staff of highly supportive, expert engineers. Our focus on providing information technology expertise and technical help to small and midsize organizations will give you the chance to work intimately with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the growth of exciting businesses.

Progent is looking for technical professionals who can show recognized certification related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your MCSE certificate. For Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For security, you should show you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other leading security certifications. Of course, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, the fact that a credential does not guarantee expertise is no excuse for not owning one. If you have mastered your field, then most of these tests should present no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you are a professional, then customers expect credentials. We will market your talents, but you need to have a baseline of certifications for Progent to market. If you are adamantly against the concept of credentials, we can understand and respect your position, but you are likely not a good fit.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Working with a Great Group of Computer Consultants

Progent's company culture will allow you to become a better consultant by improving your technical knowledge and boosting the loyalty of your customers. Progent makes good on this commitment by recruiting the top consulting talent for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art system architecture, using custom application tools to deliver the maximum quality of support, and by streamlining proven operational models for attracting and retaining customers.

The main factor that differentiates us from typical consulting firms is the quality of our support professionals. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with us, we have recruited top talent covering a wide array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Apple, Linux, VMware, or other key areas, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be successful on major jobs by leveraging the collective skills of our group of professionals.

To promote the success of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful technology to do the job properly. Progent will exploit technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure allows seamless communications, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with other Progent team members — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit income with daily drives to a physical office building, and all travel you do for on-site customer jobs is determined by your own schedule, not Progent's. The best part is that much of our consulting work can be performed remotely, representing maximum productivity for billable time. In fact, some Progent staff do off-site support exclusively.

Our business structure is geared towards reacting rapidly and effectively to customer needs through information exchange and collaborative problem solving. Although our engineers operate with a great deal of independence, dispatching is unified, client problems and solutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and archived for easy reference, current consultant availability is broadcast to facilitate team tasks and simplify problem escalation, and customer approval is always monitored. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation via monthly team conferences and quarterly corporate events.

Most of our consultants are situated throughout Northern California, but Progent is attracting a quickly expanding group of network professionals throughout America. Our virtual office environment eliminates regional obstacles that restrict the productivity of traditional company structures. We complete the deal by providing a full employee care program to promote the physical health and financial welfare of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consulting professionals, our sales and operations groups match the high standards that defines Progent. These top-notch factors behind our growth are helping us to identify and sign up the scores of new customers we are currently engaging every month. Progent recently celebrated the providing of support 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 organization.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a steady series of network challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Clients choose consultants to do the toughest jobs. Creative projects, advanced implementations, puzzling or chronic issues, 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 enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some great people, both by establishing close client relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented organization from top to bottom. If you don’t offer strong communications skills or enjoy working with a diverse group of personalities, then we are in all likelihood a poor fit.

If all this seems right for you, we urge you to contact us about our view of the future of network consulting.
