Details Concerning Opportunities at Progent

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

Progent is seeking to hire full-time, results-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco certified network engineers who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security professionals who have CISA or equivalent security certification; and advanced system architecture experts with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, workplace recovery, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks professionals who can work on Progent's staff of helpdesk support specialists and off-site troubleshooting professionals. Also, Progent is hiring talented managers able to perform productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and dedicated professionals, providing attentive customer care, and offering a strong value-focused fee structure, We have been able to expand our customer base dramatically while providing consulting support to numerous businesses in Northern California and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared knowledge database, and a group approach to problem solving have helped Progent to retain a talented staff and a satisfied client base.

For a network professional with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's customers will enhance your skills via cooperation with our group of highly supportive, expert engineers. Progent's focus on providing information technology expertise and computer support to small and midsize organizations will give you the opportunity to work closely with key players and contribute appreciably to the growth of dynamic businesses.

We are looking for consultants that can show verifiable certification in their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. In the case of Cisco experts, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is aware of "paper experts". However, simply because a credential can not guarantee expertise is no justification for not having one. If you know your field, then most of these certifications should be no challenge. The point is that if you are a professional, then customers expect credentials. Progent can market your talents, but you should provide basic credentials for Progent to market. If you happen to be strongly opposed to the idea of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Improve Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Working with the Top Team of Network Consultants

Progent's business climate will make you a better consultant by enhancing your information technology skills and increasing the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the best consulting experts for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, running proprietary software utilities to enable the maximum quality of support, and by optimizing proven operational structures for attracting and retaining clients.

The decisive factor that separates us from typical network support firms is the quality of our support professionals. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited top talent across a wide range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Mac, Linux, virtual servers, or other crucial technologies, we deploy experts who can help you to be effective on larger jobs by combining the collective skills of Progent's team of professionals.

To ensure the success of our consultants, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful tools to do the work properly. Progent will leverage information technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables seamless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with other Progent team members — entirely from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose revenue with regular drives to a physical office building, and any driving you do for in-person client jobs is determined by your own time table, not ours. The most attractive part is that most of Progent's consulting work can be performed remotely, offering 100% productivity for income-producing hours. In fact, some of our staff do remote support exclusively.

Our operations are set up for responding quickly and effectively to client needs via information exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Although Progent's engineers work with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is unified, client problems and resolutions are carefully monitored, documented, and archived for easy retrieval, current engineer schedules are broadcast to facilitate group projects and simplify trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is continually evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of connection through monthly team meetings and regular corporate events.

The majority of our team is situated across Northern California, however Progent is attracting a quickly expanding group of consulting experts throughout the U.S. Progent's virtual office environment does away with regional boundaries that limit the productivity of conventional company models. We enhance the deal by providing a full employee care plan to promote the physical health and economic welfare of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consultants, our sales and operations groups live up to the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to our success are enabling us to target and land the 50-60 new clients we are now acquiring each month. We lately marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing organization.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for success with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a continual series of technical challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Customers rely on a consultant to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, advanced implementations, vexing or chronic problems, and tricky migrations are the foundation for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every day excited about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by establishing strong client relationships and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused company through and through. If you do not offer excellent people skills or enjoy working with a varied group of personalities, then we are probably a poor fit.

If this seems right for you, we urge you to talk to us about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.
