Additional Facts Concerning Jobs at Progent

Career Jobs for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire staff-level, solutions-driven Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco accredited system consultants with Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security consultants who have CISSP or equivalent security certification; and high-end network architecture experts with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, service continuity, workplace recovery, data preservation, and VMware. Progent also is looking for professionals who can join our staff of help desk support specialists and remote troubleshooting professionals. Also, Progent is looking for experienced managers able to operate productively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of talented and motivated consultants, delivering attentive client services, and offering a competitive value-focused pricing model, Progent has managed to expand our customer list dramatically while delivering professional support to numerous companies in Northern California and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared information base, and a team strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a loyal client list.

For an information technology consultant with technical support expertise, joining Progent or helping Progent's clients can expand your knowledge via interaction with our group of highly supportive, talented engineers. Our focus on providing information technology consulting and technical support to small and midsize companies will offer you the chance to work closely with key players and contribute appreciably to the success of exciting businesses.

We are hiring consultants who have verifiable credentials in their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco consultants, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security certifications. Naturally, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, the fact that a credential does not guarantee expertise is no excuse for not having one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of these tests should be no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you are an expert, then customers deserve to see credentials. Progent can broadcast your skills, but you should provide standard certifications for Progent to work with. In case you are strongly opposed to the concept of credentials, Progent can understand and honor your position, but you are likely not a good fit.

Improve Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Working with the Top Team of Computer Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will allow you to become a better professional by enhancing your technical knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the top professional talent for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art system architecture, using custom software utilities to enable the maximum quality of service, and by optimizing our business structures for attracting and retaining clients.

The main factor that separates us from most network support firms is the excellence of our consultants. Among the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited top expertise across a wide range of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other crucial areas, we deploy experts who can enable you to be successful on larger jobs by leveraging the aggregate skills of our team of professionals.

To promote the productivity of our team, we invest heavily in making available the best technology to do the work properly. Progent will exploit technology to an extraordinary degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows seamless connectivity, collaboration, and information exchange with fellow Progent team members — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose income with daily commutes to a physical office building, and all travel you do for on-site client jobs is determined by your own time table, not Progent's. The best benefit is that much of Progent's support work can be performed off-site, representing maximum productivity for income-producing time. In fact, some of our team members do remote consulting only.

Our business structure is set up for responding quickly and effectively to client needs via information exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Although our consultants work with a high level of independence, resource allocation is unified, client issues and solutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for convenient retrieval, current engineer schedules are broadcast to streamline group projects and enable trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of connection through periodic workgroup meetings and quarterly corporate events.

The majority of Progent's team is situated across Northern California, but we are building a quickly expanding group of consulting experts from across the United States. Progent's virtual office environment does away with regional boundaries that restrict the productivity of conventional business structures. We enhance the deal by offering a comprehensive benefit program to ensure the physical health and economic security of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, our marketing and operations teams live up to the high standards that characterizes Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s growth are enabling us to identify and sign up the scores of new clients we are currently engaging every month. We lately celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective sales organization.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of network challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Clients choose consultants to do the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, advanced deployments, puzzling or chronic problems, and tricky migrations are the foundation for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for computer engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some great folks, both by establishing strong client contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization from top to bottom. If you don’t offer excellent communications skills or like cooperating with a diverse assortment of people, then we are in all likelihood a poor match.

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

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

Progent believes that a carefully designed and executed information system is a crucial piece for accelerating any company's success, and Progent follows this philosophy in our corporate system infrastructure.
