Additional Facts About Work with Us

Staff Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to find staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco certified system consultants with CCIE certification; security consultants with CISM or equivalent security certification; and high-end network design consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, workplace recovery, information protection, and VMware. Progent also is hiring employees to work on Progent's team of helpdesk support technicians and remote support experts. In addition, We are seeking experienced managers able to operate effectively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of skilled and motivated professionals, providing attentive customer care, and offering a strong results-based fee model, Progent has managed to increase our client base rapidly while delivering consulting services to numerous companies in Northern California and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common knowledge database, and a group strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a loyal customer base.

If you are an information technology consultant with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's clients can expand your knowledge through interaction with Progent's group of mutually supportive, expert consultants. Progent's commitment to providing information technology consulting and technical help to small and midsize companies will give you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with decision makers and contribute significantly to the success of dynamic businesses.

We are hiring technical professionals that have recognized credentials in their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer 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 you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security certifications. Of course, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, the fact that a credential does not ensure excellence is no reason for not owning one. If you know your field, then the majority of those tests should pose no challenge. The bottom line is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients expect credentials. Progent will promote your skills, but you should have a baseline of certifications for us to work with. If you are strongly opposed to the idea of certifications, we can understand and honor your opinion, but you are probably not a good candidate.

Working with a Great Team of Computer Engineers

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a more capable consultant by enhancing your technical knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the top professional talent for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art system architecture, running custom software utilities to deliver the maximum quality of support, and by streamlining our operational models for finding and retaining customers.

The most important factor that separates us from ordinary network support companies is the quality of our consultants. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited top talent covering a broad array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Mac, Linux, virtual servers, or other crucial technologies, we engage professionals who can help you to be successful on major jobs by combining the aggregate skills of our group of experts.

To promote the success of our consultants, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful technology to perform the work efficiently. We will exploit technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables effortless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with other Progent team members — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose income because of daily commutes to a conventional office, and all travel you do for on-site client work is based on your own time table, not Progent's. The best benefit is that much of our consulting services can be performed remotely, representing 100% productivity for billable hours. In fact, some of our staff do remote consulting exclusively.

Progent's operations are set up for responding rapidly and effectively to client requirements through information exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Although our engineers work with a great deal of independence, dispatching is centralized, customer problems and resolutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and archived for convenient retrieval, current consultant availability is published to facilitate team tasks and enable trouble escalation, and client approval is continually monitored. We reinforce the sense of cooperation through monthly team conferences and regular company-wide events.

Most of our team is situated throughout California, but we are attracting a quickly expanding team of consulting professionals from across the U.S. Our virtual office environment does away with geographic boundaries that limit the productivity of traditional business models. We enhance the deal by providing a full employee care program to ensure the health and economic welfare of our team members and their families.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and operations groups match the excellence that defines Progent.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for growth 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 exposed to a continual stream of network challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Clients choose a consultant to perform the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, leading-edge deployments, vexing or chronic issues, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for what we do daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for computer professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by building close customer contacts and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you do not offer excellent communications skills or like working with a diverse assortment of personalities, then Progent is probably not a good fit.

If all this seems good to you, we invite you to talk to us about our view of the future of network consulting.
