Details Concerning Work at Progent

Staff Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, results-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited network engineers who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security consultants with CISSP or equivalent security certification; and high-end system architecture consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high uptime, disaster recovery, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring employees to join our staff of desktop service specialists and remote support professionals. In addition, Progent is looking for experienced administrators who can perform effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of skilled and motivated consultants, delivering world-class client care, and following a strong value-focused fee structure, We have managed to expand our customer list rapidly while delivering professional support to numerous companies in Northern California and across the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a common information base, and a group approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied customer base.

For a network consultant with technical support experience, joining Progent or working for Progent's customers will enhance your skills through interaction with our staff of highly supportive, talented engineers. Progent's focus on delivering network consulting and technical support to small organizations will give you the opportunity to work intimately with decision makers and add significantly to the success of exciting businesses.

Progent is hiring consultants that have verifiable credentials in their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your MCSE certificate. For Cisco experts, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP credential. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other top security credentials. Of course, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, simply because a credential can not ensure excellence is no excuse for not earning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of these certifications should present no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers deserve to see certifications. We can promote your talents, but you need to have a baseline of credentials for Progent to market. If you are adamantly against the idea of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

Contract Work for Qualified Experts for
Windows, Apple OS, Linux-based, and Sun Technology

For over two decades, Progent's information technology engineers have offered low-cost and successful network consulting services for businesses in Northern California and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common support database, and a collaborative philosophy for problem solving have helped us to retain a strong in-house team and dramatically grow a satisfied customer base.

The Experts Team is our way to provide clients the services of expert computer consulting engineers who have advanced knowledge and field background in key technologies outside of our core focus in network infrastructure and security. Experts Team consultants are typically independent contractors and occasionally "moonlighters" who have been thoroughly certified by us to collaborate with our in-house engineers to deliver end-to-end, enterprise-class information technology solutions to small companies.

Enhance Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining the Top Group of Computer Engineers

Progent's business climate will make you a more capable professional by improving your technical skills and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by recruiting the top consulting experts for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, running custom software tools to deliver the maximum quality of support, and by optimizing our operational models for attracting and maintaining clients.

The decisive factor that differentiates Progent from typical network support firms is the high caliber of our consulting team. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited the best talent covering a wide range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other crucial application, we engage professionals who can help you to be successful on larger jobs by leveraging the aggregate skills of Progent's group of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's team, we invest significantly in making available the best tools to do the work efficiently. Progent will leverage information technology to an extraordinary degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows effortless communications, cooperation, and information exchange with fellow Progent team members — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit income because of regular drives to a conventional office, and any driving you do for in-person customer work is determined by your own time table, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that much of Progent's support services can be done off-site, offering maximum efficiency for income-producing time. In fact, some Progent team members do off-site support only.

Our operations are set up for reacting rapidly and effectively to client needs through information exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Even though Progent's consultants operate with a high level of independence, resource allocation is unified, client issues and solutions are carefully monitored, documented, and archived for easy retrieval, current engineer availability is published to streamline group projects and enable trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is always evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation through periodic team conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of Progent's consultants are situated across Northern California, but we are building a rapidly growing team of consulting professionals throughout the United States. Our virtual office environment does away with regional boundaries that restrict the productivity of traditional company structures. We enhance the package by providing a comprehensive employee care plan to promote the health and financial security of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's sales and administration groups match the high standards that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to our success are enabling us to identify and land the scores of new customers we are now engaging each month. We lately marked the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong marketing organization.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for success with us. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a continual series of network challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Customers rely on consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, leading-edge deployments, vexing or chronic issues, and tricky migrations are the basis for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for computer engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning excited about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will work with some great folks, both by establishing close customer relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented organization from top to bottom. If you do not have strong people skills or like cooperating with a varied group of people, then Progent is probably not a good match.

If all this sounds right for you, we invite you to contact us about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
