Additional Facts Concerning Jobs at Progent

Career Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to find full-time, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco accredited system engineers who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security consultants who have CISA or equivalent security credentials; and high-end network architecture consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, fault tolerance, business continuity, information preservation, and VMware. Progent also is hiring professionals who can work on our staff of help desk support specialists and off-site support experts. In addition, Progent is looking for experienced administrators able to perform effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of skilled and dedicated consultants, providing attentive customer services, and following a competitive results-based fee structure, We have managed to expand our customer base rapidly while providing professional services to numerous companies in Northern California and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a common information base, and a group strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a satisfied customer base.

For an information technology consultant with technical support expertise, joining Progent or working for our clients will expand your skills via interaction with Progent's group of highly team-oriented, talented consultants. Progent's commitment to providing network consulting and computer support to small organizations will give you the opportunity to collaborate closely with decision makers and contribute significantly to the success of dynamic companies.

Progent is looking for consultants who have verifiable credentials in their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco professionals, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security credentials. Of course, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” However, the fact that a certificate can not ensure expertise is no excuse for not having one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of those certifications should be no great difficulty. The point is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then clients deserve to see credentials. We can promote your talents, but you should have standard certifications for us to work with. If you happen to be adamantly against the idea of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the best consulting talent for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications infrastructure, using specialized application utilities to deliver the maximum level of service, and by optimizing our business models for finding and retaining clients.

The most important factor that separates Progent from other network support firms is the quality of our consulting team. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have joined Progent, we have assembled the best talent across a wide array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Apple, Linux, server virtualization, or other vital technologies, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be effective on larger projects by leveraging the aggregate experience of Progent's team of experts.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful tools to do the work efficiently. We will exploit technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure allows effortless connectivity, collaboration, and information exchange with fellow Progent consultants — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit income with daily commutes to a conventional office building, and all driving you do for on-site customer work is determined by your time table, not ours. The most attractive part is that much of our consulting work can be done remotely, offering maximum productivity for billable hours. In practice, some Progent team members do off-site consulting only.

Our operations are set up for responding quickly and effectively to customer requirements via knowledge sharing and collaborative problem solving. Although our engineers work with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, customer problems and solutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and archived for easy retrieval, current engineer schedules are broadcast to facilitate group tasks and enable trouble escalation, and client approval is continually monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation through periodic team meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of Progent's team is situated throughout California, however we are attracting a quickly expanding group of consulting experts from across the U.S. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic obstacles that restrict the efficiency of traditional company structures. We enhance the deal by offering a comprehensive employee care plan to promote the health and economic security of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have awesome consulting professionals, our sales and operations teams live up to the high standards that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind our success are helping us to target and land the 50-60 new customers we are now engaging every month. We lately celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective sales organization.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for success with us. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of network challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Clients rely on consulting firms to do the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, advanced deployments, puzzling or entrenched problems, and tricky upgrades are the basis for what we do daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for computer engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every morning excited about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some great folks, both by establishing close customer contacts and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization through and through. If you don’t have strong people skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied assortment of personalities, then we are probably a poor fit.

If all this sounds good to you, we invite you to talk to Progent about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.
