Details Concerning Opportunities at Progent

Staff Jobs for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent wants to find staff-level, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco certified system consultants with Cisco CCIE certification; security professionals who have CISA or equivalent security certification; and advanced system design experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high availability, workplace recovery, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also seeks professionals who can join Progent's team of help desk support specialists and off-site support professionals. In addition, Progent is seeking talented administrators who can perform effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of skilled and motivated consultants, providing attentive client services, and offering a competitive results-focused fee structure, Progent has been able to expand our customer list rapidly while delivering consulting services to numerous companies in Northern California and across the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a common knowledge base, and a team strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a loyal customer base.

If you are a network professional with technical support expertise, joining Progent or working for our clients can enhance your knowledge via cooperation with our staff of mutually supportive, expert engineers. Our commitment to delivering information technology expertise and computer support to small companies will offer you the opportunity to collaborate closely with key players and contribute significantly to the growth of dynamic companies.

Progent is hiring technical professionals who can show verifiable credentials related to their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. In the case of Cisco experts, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or other leading security certifications. Naturally, we are familiar with "paper experts". Notwithstanding, simply because a certificate does not ensure excellence is no reason for not having one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of these tests should present no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then clients expect credentials. We can broadcast your talents, but you should have standard certifications for us to work with. If you stand adamantly against the idea of certifications, Progent can understand and honor your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Working with the Top Group of Computer Engineers

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a more capable consulting professional by enhancing your technical knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the best professional talent for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art system architecture, running proprietary application tools to deliver the highest quality of support, and by streamlining our business models for attracting and retaining clients.

The most important factor that differentiates us from typical consulting companies is the excellence of our support professionals. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have recruited top expertise covering a wide range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other key areas, we engage experts who can help you to be effective on larger projects by combining the aggregate skills of our group of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful tools to do the job efficiently. We will leverage information technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows seamless connectivity, collaboration, and information sharing with other Progent team members — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or lose income because of regular commutes to a conventional office, and all driving you do for on-site customer work is determined by your own schedule, not ours. The best part is that much of Progent's support work can be done remotely, representing 100% efficiency for income-producing hours. In fact, some Progent staff do off-site support exclusively.

Progent's operations are set up for reacting rapidly and efficiently to customer needs through information sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Although Progent's engineers work with a high level of independence, resource allocation is centralized, client problems and solutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and organized for easy reference, up-to-date consultant schedules are published to facilitate team projects and enable trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is continually monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation through monthly team conferences and regular corporate events.

The majority of Progent's team is situated throughout California, however we are building a quickly expanding team of consulting experts from across America. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic boundaries that restrict the efficiency of traditional company models. We complete the deal by providing a full employee care plan to ensure the health and financial security of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and administration groups live up to the high standards that characterizes Progent. These high-performance contributors to our growth are enabling us to target and land the 50-60 new clients we are now engaging each month. We lately marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing organization.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a key for success with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a steady series of network challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Clients choose a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, advanced deployments, vexing or entrenched issues, and difficult migrations are the basis for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for network professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every morning excited about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by establishing strong customer contacts and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused company heart and soul. If you do not have strong communications skills or like cooperating with a diverse group of people, then we are probably a poor match.

If this seems good to you, we urge you to contact us about our vision of the future of network consulting.
