Additional Facts Concerning Opportunities at Progent

Career Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Help Technicians

Progent wants to hire full-time, results-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco accredited network engineers who have Cisco credentials; security professionals with CISSP or equivalent security credentials; and advanced system design experts with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, high uptime, workplace recovery, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for professionals who can join Progent's staff of desktop service specialists and remote support experts. In addition, We are hiring talented administrators who can operate effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of talented and motivated consultants, delivering world-class client care, and offering a competitive results-based pricing structure, We have managed to expand our client list dramatically while delivering consulting support to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a common knowledge database, and a team approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a satisfied customer base.

Our focus on delivering information technology consulting and technical help to small organizations will give you the chance to collaborate intimately with key players and add appreciably to the growth of exciting companies.

We are looking for technical professionals who can show verifiable certification related to their special focus.

For security, you should have 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, simply because a certificate does not guarantee excellence is no reason for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then most of these certifications should pose no challenge. The bottom line is that if you are an expert, then clients deserve to see credentials. Progent can broadcast your skills, but you need to provide a baseline of credentials for us to work with. In case you happen to be adamantly opposed to the idea of certifications, Progent can understand and respect your position, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the best professional talent for you to work with, offering an advanced system infrastructure, running specialized application tools to enable the highest level of service, and by optimizing our business structures for attracting and maintaining clients.

The most important factor that distinguishes us from other network support firms is the quality of our consulting team. Among the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled top talent across a wide range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other vital technologies, we deploy professionals who can help you to be effective on larger jobs by combining the aggregate experience of our team of experts.

To promote the success of Progent's team, we invest heavily in providing the best technology to perform the work efficiently. We will exploit technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables effortless connectivity, 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 with daily commutes to a physical office building, and all travel you do for in-person customer jobs is determined by your own schedule, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that much of Progent's consulting services can be performed remotely, representing 100% efficiency for income-producing hours. In fact, some of our team members do remote consulting only.

Progent's business structure is set up for responding rapidly and effectively to client needs through knowledge exchange and cooperative problem solving. Even though Progent's engineers operate with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is centralized, client issues and resolutions are carefully tracked, documented, and organized for easy retrieval, current engineer availability is broadcast to facilitate group tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and customer approval is always monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation via periodic team conferences and quarterly corporate events.

Most of our consultants are situated across Northern California, however Progent is attracting a quickly expanding team of network professionals throughout the U.S. Progent's virtual office environment does away with geographic boundaries that restrict the efficiency of traditional business structures. We complete the deal by offering a full employee care program to ensure the health and financial security of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consultants, Progent's marketing and administration teams live up to the high standards that characterizes Progent. These high-performance contributors to our growth are enabling us to target and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are currently engaging each month. Progent recently celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with us. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of technical challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Clients choose a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, leading-edge implementations, vexing or chronic issues, and tricky migrations are the foundation for our services every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will meet some great folks, both by building strong client contacts and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused company through and through. If you don’t offer strong people skills or like working with a varied group of personalities, then we are probably not a good fit.

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