Additional Facts Concerning Jobs with Us

Staff Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Service Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, results-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco accredited network engineers with CCIE certification; security consultants with CISM or equivalent security credentials; and high-end network architecture consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, disaster recovery, information preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring employees who can join Progent's team of helpdesk service specialists and off-site support experts. In addition, Progent is seeking experienced administrators able to operate productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of skilled and motivated professionals, providing attentive client services, and following a competitive results-focused pricing structure, We have managed to expand our customer base dramatically while delivering professional services to numerous businesses in Northern California and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared knowledge base, and a team approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a loyal client base.

For an information technology consultant with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or helping Progent's clients can expand your knowledge through cooperation with Progent's staff of mutually team-oriented, talented engineers. Progent's focus on providing information technology consulting and technical help to small and midsize organizations will give you the opportunity to work intimately with decision makers and add significantly to the success of exciting companies.

We are looking for consultants that have verifiable credentials related to their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your MCSE certificate. For Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security certifications. Of course, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” However, simply because a credential can not guarantee excellence is no justification for not earning one. If you know your field, then most of those certifications should be no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients deserve to see credentials. Progent will market your talents, but you need to have a baseline of credentials for us to market. In case you are adamantly against the idea of certifications, we can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not a good candidate.

Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the top professional talent for you to work with, offering an advanced system architecture, using custom software utilities to deliver the highest level of service, and by optimizing proven business structures for finding and retaining customers.

The decisive factor that separates us from typical consulting firms is the high caliber of our consultants.

To promote the success of our consultants, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful tools to do the work efficiently. We will leverage technology to an extraordinary degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows seamless communications, cooperation, and information exchange with other Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose income with daily drives to a physical office building, and all driving you do for on-site customer jobs is based on your schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that most of Progent's support services can be performed remotely, representing 100% productivity for billable time. In fact, some Progent team members do off-site consulting exclusively.

Our operations are geared towards reacting quickly and efficiently to client needs via information exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Even though Progent's consultants work with a high level of freedom, dispatching is unified, client issues and solutions are carefully monitored, documented, and archived for convenient retrieval, up-to-date engineer availability is broadcast to streamline group tasks and simplify problem escalation, and client approval is always evaluated. We strengthen the sense of cooperation through monthly team conferences and quarterly corporate events.

The majority of Progent's team is situated throughout Northern California, but Progent is attracting a quickly growing team of network experts throughout the United States. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with regional boundaries that limit the efficiency of conventional business models. We complete the package by providing a full employee care plan to promote the physical health and economic security of our team members and their families.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and administration groups live up to the high standards that defines Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s success are enabling us to target and land the 50-60 new customers we are currently engaging each month. Progent recently celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective sales organization.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for success with us. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of technical challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Clients choose consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, leading-edge deployments, vexing or entrenched problems, and difficult migrations are the basis for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for computer engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by establishing close client relationships and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization heart and soul. If you do not have strong communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse group of personalities, then Progent is probably a poor fit.

If this seems good to you, we invite you to contact Progent about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
