Additional Facts About Opportunities with Us

Staff Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire staff-level, solutions-driven Microsoft certified engineers with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco certified network engineers with CCIE credentials; security consultants with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security credentials; and advanced network design experts with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, service continuity, business continuity, data preservation, and VMware. Progent also is hiring professionals who can work on our team of helpdesk support specialists and remote troubleshooting experts. Also, Progent is seeking experienced managers able to operate effectively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of talented and motivated professionals, delivering attentive customer services, and offering a strong results-focused fee structure, Progent has been able to increase our client list rapidly while providing consulting services to numerous companies in Northern California and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared information base, and a team approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a talented staff and a loyal customer list.

If you are an information technology professional with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or helping our customers will expand your knowledge through interaction with Progent's group of highly supportive, expert consultants. Progent's focus on delivering information technology expertise and technical support to small and midsize organizations will offer you the chance to collaborate closely with decision makers and add significantly to the growth of exciting companies.

Progent is hiring technical professionals that can show verifiable credentials in their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco consultants, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should show you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security certifications. Naturally, we are aware of "paper experts". Notwithstanding, simply because a certificate can not guarantee expertise is no justification for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of those certifications should pose no challenge. The point is that if you call yourself an expert, then customers expect certifications. We will broadcast your talents, but you must have a baseline of certifications for Progent to market. If you are adamantly opposed to the concept of credentials, Progent can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

The most attractive part is that much of Progent's support services can be performed off-site, representing maximum efficiency for billable hours. In fact, some of our team members do remote support only.

Progent's operations are geared towards responding quickly and efficiently to client needs via information exchange and collaborative problem solving. Even though our consultants work with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is unified, customer problems and solutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and archived for easy retrieval, current consultant availability is published to facilitate group projects and enable problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is always monitored.

Being exposed to a steady stream of network challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Clients choose consultants to perform the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, leading-edge implementations, vexing or entrenched issues, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for what we do every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for network professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will work with some great people, both by building close customer relationships and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company heart and soul.
