Details Concerning Jobs at Progent

Fulltime Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, results-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco accredited system consultants with Cisco CCIE certification; security consultants with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security certification; and high-end system design consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, business continuity, information preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring employees to join Progent's staff of help desk service technicians and off-site troubleshooting professionals. In addition, Progent is hiring talented administrators able to perform effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of skilled and motivated professionals, delivering world-class client services, and following a strong results-focused pricing structure, We have been able to increase our client list dramatically while providing consulting services to numerous companies in Northern California and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared information base, and a team approach to problem solving have helped Progent to retain a talented staff and a satisfied customer list.

For a network consultant with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or helping our customers will expand your knowledge via interaction with Progent's group of mutually team-oriented, talented consultants. Progent's focus on providing information technology consulting and computer support to small and midsize companies will offer you the opportunity to work intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the growth of dynamic businesses.

Progent is hiring technical professionals who have verifiable certification related to their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco experts, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security credentials. Naturally, Progent is aware of "paper experts". However, the fact that a certificate can not ensure expertise is no reason for not earning one. If you know your field, then most of those certifications should be no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers deserve to see credentials. We will broadcast your skills, but you need to have standard certifications for us to work with. If you are strongly opposed to the idea of certifications, we can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Enhance Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Working with a Great Team of Network Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will allow you to become a more capable professional by enhancing your technical knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the top consulting talent for you to work with, offering an advanced network and communications infrastructure, running custom application tools to deliver the highest level of support, and by optimizing our business structures for finding and keeping customers.

The main factor that separates Progent from ordinary network support companies is the high quality of our consulting team. Among the scores of consultants who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled the best expertise covering a broad range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other vital technologies, we deploy professionals who can help you to be effective on larger projects by combining the aggregate skills of our team of experts.

To ensure the success of our consultants, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful tools to perform the work properly. We will leverage technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables effortless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent consultants — all from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit revenue because of regular commutes to a physical office, and any travel you do for in-person customer work is based on your own time table, not Progent's. The best part is that most of our consulting services can be done remotely, representing 100% productivity for billable hours. In fact, some Progent team members do off-site consulting exclusively.

Progent's business structure is set up for reacting quickly and efficiently to client needs through information sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Even though our consultants work with a high level of independence, dispatching is unified, customer issues and resolutions are carefully tracked, documented, and organized for easy retrieval, current consultant availability is published to streamline team tasks and simplify problem escalation, and customer approval is continually monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation through periodic workgroup conferences and regular company-wide events.

The majority of our team is located across California, but we are attracting a quickly expanding group of consulting professionals from across the United States. Our virtual office environment eliminates regional boundaries that restrict the productivity of traditional business structures. We enhance the package by providing a comprehensive benefit program to ensure the health and financial welfare of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and operations groups live up to the excellence that defines Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s success are helping us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are currently acquiring each month. We recently marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing organization.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a key for growth with us. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a steady series of technical challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Customers choose consulting firms to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, leading-edge deployments, vexing or chronic issues, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for our services daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for network engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every day enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will work with some great people, both by building strong customer relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their success. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization from top to bottom. If you do not offer strong communications skills or enjoy working with a varied group of people, then Progent is probably not a good fit.

If this sounds good to you, we invite you to talk to us about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.

Get Quality of Life Improvements and Technical Prowess with
Progent's Sophisticated Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent believes that a well architected and executed network is a crucial factor for enabling any company's growth, and we apply this belief in our corporate system infrastructure.
