Additional Facts Concerning Opportunities at Progent

Staff Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to find full-time, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco certified network engineers with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security professionals who have CISA or equivalent security credentials; and high-end network architecture experts with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, fault tolerance, business continuity, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for employees to work on our staff of help desk support technicians and remote troubleshooting professionals. In addition, We are hiring experienced managers who can operate effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of skilled and dedicated consultants, delivering world-class client care, and following a strong value-based pricing model, We have managed to increase our client list rapidly while delivering professional support to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a shared knowledge base, and a team strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a talented staff and a satisfied customer base.

If you are a network professional with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or helping Progent's clients will expand your knowledge via cooperation with Progent's staff of highly supportive, talented engineers. Progent's focus on delivering network consulting and technical help to small and midsize organizations will give you the chance to work intimately with key players and add significantly to the growth of exciting businesses.

Progent is hiring consultants who have verifiable certification in their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your Microsoft MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco professionals, have your CCIE or CCNP credential. For security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security certifications. Naturally, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, the fact that a certificate can not ensure expertise is no excuse for not having one. If you know your field, then the majority of these certifications should present no challenge. The point is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients expect credentials. Progent will market your talents, but you need to have standard credentials for us to market. If you are adamantly opposed to the concept of certifications, we can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

The decisive factor that distinguishes us from ordinary consulting companies is the excellence of our consultants.

To ensure the success of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in providing the best tools to perform the work efficiently. Progent will leverage technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables seamless communications, cooperation, and information exchange with fellow Progent team members — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit revenue because of regular commutes to a conventional office, and any travel you do for on-site client jobs is determined by your own schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that much of our support services can be done remotely, offering maximum efficiency for billable time. In fact, some of our staff do remote consulting only.

Progent's business structure is geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to client needs through information exchange and collaborative problem solving. Although our engineers operate with a high level of independence, resource allocation is unified, client problems and solutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and archived for convenient reference, up-to-date engineer availability is published to facilitate group projects and simplify problem escalation, and client satisfaction is continually evaluated. We strengthen the sense of connection through monthly team conferences and quarterly corporate events.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with us. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a continual series of technical challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Clients choose consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or chronic problems, and difficult migrations are the basis for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for network professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every day excited about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by building close client contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their success. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented company through and through. If you do not offer excellent communications skills or enjoy working with a diverse group of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor match.

If this seems right for you, we invite you to talk to us about our vision of the future of information technology consulting.
