Additional Facts Concerning Jobs at Progent

Career Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire full-time, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited network consultants who have Cisco CCIE certification; security consultants with CISSP or equivalent security credentials; and high-end network design experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, service continuity, business continuity, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for professionals who can join our team of desktop service technicians and remote support experts. In addition, We are looking for experienced administrators able to operate effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of talented and dedicated professionals, delivering attentive customer care, and offering a strong value-based pricing structure, Progent has been able to expand our client list dramatically while delivering consulting support to numerous businesses in Northern California and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common information database, and a group approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a satisfied client list.

For a network consultant with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or helping our clients can enhance your skills through interaction with our group of mutually supportive, expert consultants. Progent's focus on providing network expertise and technical support to small companies will offer you the chance to collaborate closely with key players and contribute appreciably to the success of exciting businesses.

Progent is looking for consultants who have recognized certification related to their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco experts, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other top security credentials. Of course, Progent is aware of "paper experts". Nevertheless, the fact that a certificate does not ensure excellence is no reason 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 represent yourself to be an expert, then customers deserve to see certifications. We can promote your talents, but you need to have basic credentials for Progent to market. In case you stand adamantly against the concept of certifications, we can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are likely not a good fit.

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining the Top Group of Network Consultants

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a better consulting professional by improving your information technology skills and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the best professional experts for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art system architecture, using custom application utilities to deliver the maximum quality of service, and by optimizing proven business structures for attracting and keeping clients.

The main factor that differentiates us from ordinary consulting firms is the excellence of our consultants. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled top expertise covering a broad array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other crucial technologies, we deploy professionals who can help you to be successful on major projects by leveraging the collective experience of our team of experts.

To ensure the productivity of our team, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful technology to do the job properly. Progent will leverage technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office environment enables effortless connectivity, collaboration, and information sharing with fellow Progent team members — all from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit income because of daily commutes to a physical office, and any travel you do for on-site client work is determined by your time table, not ours. The most attractive part is that much of our support services can be done off-site, representing 100% efficiency for income-producing hours. In practice, some of our staff do off-site consulting only.

Our operations are set up for responding quickly and efficiently to customer requirements via knowledge sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Although Progent's engineers work with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is unified, client issues and solutions are carefully monitored, documented, and organized for convenient retrieval, up-to-date engineer availability is broadcast to streamline team tasks and simplify problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is always monitored. We reinforce the sense of connection via monthly team meetings and regular corporate events.

The majority of our consultants are located throughout Northern California, but we are attracting a rapidly growing group of consulting professionals from across the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional boundaries that limit the efficiency of traditional business models. We complete the package by offering a full benefit program to promote the health and economic welfare of our team members and their families.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's sales and operations teams live up to the excellence that is Progent. These top-notch factors behind our success are helping us to target and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are now engaging each month. We recently marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales organization.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with us. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being exposed to a steady series of technical challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Customers rely on consulting firms to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, leading-edge implementations, vexing or entrenched issues, and difficult migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for network engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every day excited about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will meet some great people, both by establishing close client relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented organization heart and soul. If you don’t offer strong people skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse group of personalities, then we are probably not a good fit.

If this seems good to you, we invite you to talk to us about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.
