Additional Facts Concerning Jobs at Progent

Career Work for Network Consultants, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent wants to find full-time, results-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco accredited system engineers who have Cisco credentials; security professionals with CISM or comparable security credentials; and advanced system design experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, fault tolerance, business continuity, data preservation, and VMware. Progent also seeks professionals to work on Progent's staff of help desk service technicians and off-site troubleshooting experts. Also, Progent is seeking talented administrators able to operate productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of talented and dedicated consultants, providing world-class client care, and following a strong value-focused pricing structure, Progent has been able to expand our client list rapidly while delivering professional support to numerous companies in Northern California and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared knowledge database, and a team approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a satisfied customer list.

If you are a network professional with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's customers will enhance your skills through interaction with Progent's staff of highly supportive, talented consultants. Progent's focus on providing information technology expertise and computer help to small and midsize companies will give you the opportunity to work intimately with decision makers and add significantly to the success of exciting companies.

Progent is looking for consultants that have recognized certification related to their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your MCSE credential. For Cisco professionals, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security credentials. Of course, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, the fact that a credential does not guarantee expertise is no reason for not having one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of those tests should pose no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers expect credentials. Progent can promote your skills, but you need to have basic credentials for us to market. In case you stand strongly opposed to the idea of credentials, we can understand and honor your position, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the best consulting experts for you to work with, providing an advanced network and communications infrastructure, using custom software utilities to deliver the highest quality of service, and by streamlining proven business models for finding and maintaining clients.

The decisive factor that separates us from other network support firms is the high caliber of our service staff. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled top expertise covering a broad range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Mac, Linux, virtual servers, or other crucial application, we deploy professionals who can help you to be successful on larger jobs by combining the aggregate skills of Progent's group of professionals.

To ensure the success of our team, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful technology to perform the job properly. Progent will leverage information technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office environment enables effortless communications, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent team members — all from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of regular drives to a physical office, and all travel you do for on-site customer work is determined by your own time table, not Progent's. The best part is that much of Progent's consulting services can be done off-site, offering 100% efficiency for income-producing hours. In fact, some Progent team members do remote consulting only.

Our business structure is geared towards reacting quickly and effectively to customer needs through knowledge sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Even though our engineers work with a high level of freedom, dispatching is centralized, customer problems and resolutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and archived for easy retrieval, up-to-date engineer schedules are published to facilitate team projects and enable problem escalation, and customer approval is always evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of connection via monthly team conferences and quarterly corporate events.

Most of our team is situated throughout Northern California, however Progent is attracting a quickly expanding team of consulting professionals from across America. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic boundaries that limit the productivity of traditional company models. We complete the deal by providing a full employee care plan to ensure the physical health and economic security of our employees and their families.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, our sales and operations teams match the high standards that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s growth are helping us to identify and land the scores of new clients we are now engaging each month. We recently celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong sales organization.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with us. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a continual series of technical challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Customers rely on a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or entrenched issues, and tricky migrations are the basis for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for computer professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will meet some great people, both by establishing strong client contacts and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization heart and soul. If you do not have excellent people skills or like cooperating with a diverse group of people, then we are probably a poor fit.

If this sounds good to you, we urge you to contact Progent about our view of the future of network consulting.
