Additional Facts About Opportunities with Us

Fulltime Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to find staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco certified network engineers with Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security consultants who have CISA or equivalent security credentials; and advanced network architecture consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high uptime, business continuity, information preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for employees who can join Progent's team of helpdesk support technicians and remote troubleshooting professionals. In addition, Progent is seeking experienced administrators able to operate productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of talented and motivated professionals, providing attentive customer care, and offering a competitive value-focused pricing model, We have managed to increase our client list dramatically while delivering professional services to hundreds of companies in Northern California and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common knowledge base, and a group approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a talented staff and a satisfied client list.

If you are a network professional with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or helping our clients can enhance your knowledge through interaction with Progent's staff of highly supportive, talented consultants. Our commitment to delivering information technology expertise and technical help to small companies will give you the opportunity to work intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the growth of dynamic companies.

Progent is hiring technical professionals who can show recognized credentials related to their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your MCSE certificate. For Cisco experts, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or other leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, simply because a certificate does not guarantee expertise is no excuse for not having one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of those certifications should be no challenge. The bottom line is that if you call yourself an expert, then customers deserve to see certifications. We will broadcast your talents, but you need to provide basic credentials for Progent to work with. If you are adamantly against the concept of credentials, we can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Improve Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Computer Engineers

Progent's business climate will make you a more capable consultant by improving your technical skills and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the top consulting experts for you to operate with, offering an advanced system architecture, using proprietary software utilities to enable the maximum quality of support, and by optimizing our operational structures for finding and maintaining customers.

The main factor that separates us from most network support firms is the excellence of our service staff. Among the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have recruited the best expertise across a broad array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Apple, Linux, server virtualization, or other crucial application, we engage professionals who can enable you to be effective on major jobs by combining the collective experience of Progent's team of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful tools to perform the work efficiently. We will exploit technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows seamless connectivity, collaboration, and information exchange with fellow Progent consultants — all from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose revenue with regular commutes to a physical office building, and all travel you do for on-site customer jobs is determined by your schedule, not ours. The best benefit is that much of our support services can be performed remotely, offering 100% productivity for billable hours. In fact, some of our team members do remote consulting only.

Our operations are set up for responding quickly and effectively to customer needs via knowledge exchange and cooperative problem solving. Although Progent's engineers work with a high level of freedom, dispatching is centralized, client problems and solutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and archived for easy reference, up-to-date engineer availability is broadcast to streamline team projects and enable trouble escalation, and customer approval is continually monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation through monthly workgroup meetings and regular corporate events.

Most of Progent's consultants are located throughout Northern California, however we are building a quickly expanding group of consulting professionals from across the U.S. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with regional boundaries that limit the efficiency of conventional business structures. We complete the deal by offering a full employee care plan to promote the physical health and financial security of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consultants, our sales and administration groups live up to the high standards that defines Progent. These high-performance contributors to our success are helping us to target and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are now acquiring each month. We lately celebrated the providing of services 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 excellence is a cornerstone for success with us. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of network challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Clients rely on consultants to do the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or chronic problems, and tricky migrations are the basis for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for network engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning excited about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by building close customer contacts and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization from top to bottom. If you do not have strong communications skills or like working with a diverse group of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good fit.

If this sounds right for you, we urge you to contact Progent about our vision of the future of information technology consulting.
