Additional Facts Concerning Jobs with Us

Fulltime Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire staff-level, solutions-driven Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP certification; Cisco certified system engineers with CCIE certification; security consultants with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security credentials; and high-end system design consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, fault tolerance, workplace recovery, data protection, and VMware. Progent also is looking for professionals who can join Progent's team of help desk service technicians and remote troubleshooting experts. In addition, We are hiring talented managers who can perform productively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of talented and dedicated consultants, providing world-class customer care, and following a strong value-focused pricing structure, Progent has been able to increase our customer base rapidly while providing consulting support to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and across the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared knowledge database, and a team approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied customer base.

If you are an information technology consultant with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or helping our clients can expand your skills through interaction with our staff of highly team-oriented, expert engineers. Progent's commitment to delivering network expertise and technical help to small and midsize companies will offer you the chance to collaborate closely with key players and add appreciably to the growth of dynamic companies.

We are hiring technical professionals that have recognized certification related to their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco experts, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security certifications. Naturally, we are aware of "paper experts". Notwithstanding, the fact that a credential can not guarantee expertise is no justification for not owning one. If you know your field, then the majority of those tests should present no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you are an expert, then clients deserve to see credentials. We will broadcast your skills, but you should provide a baseline of credentials for Progent to work with. In case you stand adamantly opposed to the idea of credentials, we can understand and honor your opinion, but you are probably not a good fit.

Enhance Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Working with the Top Team of Computer Engineers

Progent's company culture will make you a more capable professional by enhancing your technical skills and increasing the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the best consulting experts for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications infrastructure, using custom software tools to deliver the maximum quality of support, and by optimizing proven operational structures for attracting and maintaining clients.

The decisive factor that separates Progent from ordinary network support companies is the high caliber of our service staff. Out of the scores of consultants who have joined Progent, we have recruited top expertise across a wide range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Mac, Linux, virtual servers, or other key areas, we engage professionals who can enable you to be effective on major projects by leveraging the aggregate experience of our group of experts.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's team, we invest significantly in providing the best technology to do the job efficiently. We will exploit information technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables effortless communications, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with other Progent team members — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose income with daily commutes to a conventional office building, and any travel you do for on-site customer work is based on your time table, not ours. The best part is that much of our support services can be performed remotely, offering 100% efficiency for billable hours. In practice, some of our team members do off-site support only.

Progent's business structure is set up for responding quickly and efficiently to customer requirements through knowledge sharing and cooperative problem solving. Even though our consultants work with a high level of independence, dispatching is centralized, customer problems and resolutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for convenient retrieval, current consultant schedules are broadcast to streamline team projects and enable problem escalation, and client satisfaction is continually monitored. We strengthen the feeling of connection via monthly team conferences and regular corporate events.

Most of our team is situated across California, but we are building a rapidly growing team of network experts from across the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with regional boundaries that restrict the efficiency of conventional business models. We complete the deal by providing a full employee care program to promote the physical health and financial security of our employees and their families.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and operations groups live up to the high standards that characterizes Progent. These high-performance contributors to our growth are helping us to identify and sign up the scores of new customers we are now engaging every month. We recently marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective sales organization.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a key for success with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a continual series of network challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Customers choose a consultant to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, advanced implementations, puzzling or chronic issues, and difficult migrations are the basis for what we do daily. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for computer engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning excited about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by building strong customer contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you don’t have strong communications skills or like working with a diverse assortment of personalities, then Progent is probably a poor match.

If all this seems good to you, we urge you to talk to us about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.

Enjoy Quality of Life Benefits and Technical Success with
Progent's Sophisticated Virtual Office Environment

Progent believes that a carefully architected and implemented information system is a crucial piece for accelerating a company's growth, and we follow this credo in our own network infrastructure.
