Additional Facts About Opportunities at Progent

Staff Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent wants to hire full-time, results-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP certification; Cisco accredited system consultants with Cisco CCIE certification; security professionals with CISM or comparable security credentials; and high-end network architecture consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, service continuity, business continuity, data protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring professionals who can work on Progent's team of helpdesk support technicians and off-site support experts. Also, Progent is hiring talented managers able to perform productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of talented and motivated professionals, providing attentive customer care, and following a strong value-based fee structure, We have managed to expand our customer list dramatically while providing professional services to numerous businesses in Northern California and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common information base, and a group approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a talented staff and a loyal client list.

If you are a network professional with technical support experience, joining Progent or helping Progent's clients will expand your skills through interaction with our group of mutually supportive, talented consultants. Our focus on delivering information technology expertise and computer help to small companies will offer you the chance to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the success of exciting companies.

We are looking for consultants who have recognized certification in their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other leading security credentials. Of course, we are familiar with "paper experts". Nevertheless, simply because a credential can not guarantee excellence is no justification for not having one. If you know your stuff, then most of these certifications should be no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you are an expert, then clients deserve to see certifications. Progent will broadcast your talents, but you must have standard credentials for Progent to work with. In case you are strongly against the concept of credentials, we can understand and respect your position, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Working with the Top Group of Network Engineers

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a better professional by improving your technical skills and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this commitment by recruiting the top professional experts for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, using specialized software tools to deliver the highest quality of support, and by optimizing our operational models for finding and keeping customers.

The most important factor that separates Progent from most network support companies is the quality of our support professionals. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled the best talent covering a broad range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other crucial areas, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be effective on larger jobs by combining the aggregate experience of our team of experts.

To promote the productivity of our consultants, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful tools to do the work properly. Progent will exploit technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure allows effortless connectivity, cooperation, and information sharing with other Progent team members — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or lose income because of regular drives to a physical office, and any driving you do for in-person client jobs is determined by your own schedule, not Progent's. The best part is that much of our support work can be done off-site, offering maximum productivity for income-producing hours. In practice, some Progent staff do off-site consulting exclusively.

Our business structure is set up for responding rapidly and efficiently to client requirements via information exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Even though our consultants work with a high level of independence, resource allocation is centralized, client issues and solutions are carefully monitored, documented, and archived for convenient retrieval, up-to-date consultant availability is broadcast to facilitate team projects and enable trouble escalation, and client approval is always evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation through monthly workgroup conferences and regular company-wide events.

Most of our team is located across Northern California, however we are attracting a rapidly growing group of network experts from across the United States. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional obstacles that restrict the productivity of conventional business models. We complete the package by offering a comprehensive employee care plan to promote the physical health and financial welfare of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, Progent's sales and operations teams live up to the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s growth are enabling us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are now engaging each month. Progent recently celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective sales organization.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with us. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a steady series of technical challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Clients choose consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, advanced implementations, vexing or chronic issues, and tricky migrations are the foundation for our services daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will meet some great folks, both by establishing strong customer relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you do not offer excellent people skills or like cooperating with a diverse group of people, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good fit.

If all this sounds right for you, we urge you to contact us about our vision of the future of information technology consulting.

Enjoy Lifestyle Benefits and Technical Success with
Our Sophisticated Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent is convinced that a well designed and implemented information system can be a pivotal factor for accelerating any company's success, and we apply this credo in our corporate network environment.
