Additional Facts Concerning Jobs with Us

Fulltime Jobs for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to find staff-level, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco certified system consultants who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security professionals with CISM or comparable security certification; and advanced network design experts with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, service continuity, workplace recovery, data protection, and VMware. Progent also seeks professionals who can join Progent's staff of desktop service technicians and remote troubleshooting professionals. Also, Progent is seeking experienced managers who can perform effectively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of talented and dedicated professionals, providing attentive customer care, and following a strong value-based pricing structure, Progent has been able to expand our customer list dramatically while providing consulting support to numerous businesses in Northern California and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared information base, and a group strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a satisfied customer list.

If you are a network professional with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's customers will enhance your knowledge via cooperation with Progent's staff of highly team-oriented, talented consultants. Our commitment to providing information technology expertise and technical help to small and midsize companies will offer you the opportunity to work intimately with key players and contribute significantly to the success of exciting businesses.

Progent is hiring consultants who have verifiable credentials in their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco experts, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For security, you should have you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". However, simply because a credential does not guarantee excellence is no excuse for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of those tests should pose no challenge. The bottom line is that if you call yourself an expert, then customers expect credentials. Progent will promote your skills, but you should provide a baseline of certifications for Progent to market. In case you happen to be adamantly against the concept of certifications, we can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the best professional talent for you to work with, offering an advanced system architecture, using proprietary application utilities to enable the maximum level of service, and by streamlining proven operational structures for finding and retaining clients.

Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Apple, Linux, virtual servers, or other vital technologies, we engage professionals who can help you to be effective on larger projects by leveraging the aggregate experience of our group of professionals.

To promote the productivity of our consultants, we invest heavily in providing the best tools to perform the job efficiently. Progent will leverage information technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows seamless communications, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent team members — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose revenue because of regular drives to a conventional office building, and any travel you do for on-site customer work is determined by your schedule, not Progent's. The best part is that most of Progent's support work can be performed off-site, offering maximum productivity for billable hours. In fact, some Progent team members do off-site consulting exclusively.

Our operations are set up for reacting quickly and effectively to customer requirements through information exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Even though our consultants operate with a great deal of independence, dispatching is centralized, customer problems and resolutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and archived for convenient retrieval, current consultant availability is broadcast to streamline team tasks and enable trouble escalation, and customer approval is always evaluated. We reinforce the sense of cooperation through monthly workgroup meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of our team is situated throughout Northern California, however we are attracting a rapidly growing group of consulting professionals from across the U.S. Our virtual office environment does away with regional boundaries that restrict the efficiency of conventional business models. We enhance the package by offering a full benefit plan to promote the health and financial security of our team members and their families.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and administration teams match the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to our success are helping us to target and land the 50-60 new clients we are currently acquiring each month. Progent lately celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong marketing organization.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a key for growth with us. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a continual series of technical challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Clients rely on a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, advanced implementations, vexing or chronic problems, and tricky upgrades are the basis for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning excited about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by establishing close client relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you don’t offer strong people skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse group of people, then Progent is probably a poor match.

If all this seems right for you, we urge you to contact Progent about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
