More Information Concerning Opportunities at Progent

Fulltime Work for Network Consultants, Computer Service Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire staff-level, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco accredited network consultants with CCIE certification; security professionals with CISSP or equivalent security credentials; and advanced network architecture consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, service continuity, disaster recovery, information protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring employees to work on Progent's staff of desktop service specialists and off-site support professionals. In addition, We are looking for experienced administrators who can perform productively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of skilled and dedicated professionals, providing world-class client services, and offering a competitive results-based pricing structure, Progent has managed to expand our customer list rapidly while providing consulting support to numerous companies in Northern California and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a common information base, and a group strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a loyal customer list.

If you are a network consultant with troubleshooting experience, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's clients can expand your skills through interaction with Progent's staff of highly supportive, talented consultants. Our commitment to delivering information technology expertise and technical help to small and midsize organizations will give you the chance to work closely with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the growth of exciting businesses.

We are hiring consultants who can show recognized credentials in their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco experts, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or other top security credentials. Naturally, we are aware of "paper experts". However, the fact that a certificate does not guarantee excellence is no excuse for not having one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of these tests should pose no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you call yourself an expert, then customers expect credentials. Progent will promote your talents, but you need to provide standard certifications for Progent to market. In case you stand adamantly against the concept of certifications, we can understand and respect your opinion, but you are probably not a good candidate.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Network Engineers

Progent's company culture will make you a better consulting professional by enhancing your technical knowledge and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the top consulting experts for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, using specialized software tools to deliver the highest level of service, and by optimizing our operational structures for attracting and maintaining clients.

The most important factor that differentiates us from other network support companies is the high quality of our support professionals. Among the scores of consultants who have joined Progent, we have recruited the best expertise across a broad range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other key technologies, we deploy experts who can help you to be successful on larger projects by combining the aggregate experience of our team of experts.

To promote the productivity of Progent's team, we invest heavily in providing the best tools to do the work efficiently. We will exploit technology to an extraordinary degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables effortless communications, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent team members — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit revenue with regular commutes to a conventional office, and all travel you do for on-site client work is determined by your own schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that much of our consulting work can be done off-site, representing maximum efficiency for billable time. In practice, some Progent team members do remote consulting only.

Progent's operations are geared towards responding quickly and efficiently to client needs through information sharing and collaborative problem solving. Even though Progent's consultants work with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is unified, client issues and resolutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and archived for easy reference, current engineer availability is broadcast to facilitate group tasks and simplify problem escalation, and client satisfaction is always evaluated. We reinforce the sense of connection through monthly team meetings and regular corporate events.

The majority of Progent's team is located across Northern California, but we are attracting a rapidly growing team of consulting experts throughout the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional boundaries that limit the productivity of traditional business models. We enhance the package by offering a comprehensive employee care plan to ensure the physical health and financial security of our team members and their families.

Just as we have awesome consultants, our marketing and administration teams live up to the excellence that characterizes Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s success are enabling us to identify and sign up the scores of new clients we are now engaging each month. Progent lately celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective sales organization.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for growth with us. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a continual series of network challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Customers rely on consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, advanced deployments, puzzling or entrenched problems, and tricky migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for network professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by building strong client contacts and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused company from top to bottom. If you do not have excellent people skills or like working with a diverse group of people, then we are in all likelihood not a good match.

If all this seems good to you, we invite you to contact Progent about our vision of the future of network consulting.

Enjoy Lifestyle Benefits and Technical Prowess with
Progent's Advanced Virtual Office Environment

Progent is convinced that a well designed and implemented information system is a crucial factor for enabling any company's success, and we follow this credo in our own network environment.
