Additional Facts About Opportunities with Us

Fulltime Work for Network Consultants, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to find staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited network engineers who have Cisco CCIE credentials; security professionals who have CISSP or comparable security certification; and advanced system architecture consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, fault tolerance, business continuity, information preservation, and VMware. Progent also seeks professionals to join Progent's staff of helpdesk support technicians and remote support experts. In addition, Progent is looking for talented managers who can operate productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of skilled and dedicated professionals, delivering attentive customer services, and offering a competitive value-focused pricing model, We have been able to expand our client base dramatically while providing professional support to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared information database, and a group strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a loyal customer list.

Our commitment to delivering information technology consulting and technical help to small and midsize companies will offer you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with key players and contribute significantly to the success of dynamic businesses.

We are hiring technical professionals who can show recognized credentials related to their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate.

For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or one of the other top security certifications. Naturally, we are aware of "paper experts". Notwithstanding, the fact that a credential can not ensure expertise is no justification for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of those certifications should pose no challenge. The bottom line is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then clients expect certifications. Progent can broadcast your talents, but you must provide a baseline of certifications for us to market. In case you stand strongly opposed to the idea of credentials, Progent can understand and honor your opinion, but you are probably not a good fit.

Working with the Top Group of Network Engineers

Progent delivers on this commitment by recruiting the best consulting experts for you to operate with, offering an advanced system infrastructure, using custom software utilities to deliver the maximum quality of support, and by optimizing proven operational models for attracting and maintaining customers.

The main factor that separates us from typical consulting firms is the quality of our consulting team.

Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other crucial areas, we engage experts who can enable you to be effective on larger projects by leveraging the collective experience of our team of experts.

To promote the productivity of our team, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful tools to perform the job efficiently. We will exploit technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows seamless communications, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with other Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue with regular drives to a physical office, and any travel you do for on-site customer jobs is based on your own schedule, not Progent's. The best benefit is that much of Progent's consulting work can be performed off-site, offering 100% efficiency for income-producing time. In fact, some of our staff do remote support exclusively.

Our operations are set up for reacting quickly and effectively to client requirements through knowledge sharing and cooperative problem solving. Even though our consultants work with a great deal of independence, dispatching is centralized, client issues and solutions are carefully monitored, documented, and organized for easy retrieval, current consultant availability is published to facilitate group tasks and simplify problem escalation, and customer approval is always evaluated. We reinforce the sense of connection through monthly team conferences and quarterly corporate events.

The majority of Progent's consultants are located throughout California, however Progent is attracting a quickly growing group of network experts from across the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional obstacles that limit the productivity of traditional business models. We enhance the deal by offering a full benefit program to ensure the health and financial security of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consultants, Progent's sales and operations teams match the high standards that characterizes Progent. These top-notch factors behind our success are helping us to identify and sign up the scores of new customers we are currently engaging every month. Progent recently celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective sales operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a key for success with us. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a steady series of technical challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Clients rely on a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, advanced deployments, vexing or entrenched problems, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for network engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every morning excited about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful people, 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. Of course, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization through and through. If you don’t offer excellent communications skills or enjoy working 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.
