Additional Facts About Work at Progent

Career Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent wants to find staff-level, results-driven Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco accredited network engineers with Cisco credentials; security professionals who have CISM or equivalent security credentials; and high-end network design consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, service continuity, disaster recovery, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also seeks employees who can join our team of helpdesk support specialists and off-site support experts. Also, Progent is hiring talented administrators who can perform productively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of skilled and motivated consultants, delivering attentive customer services, and offering a strong value-based pricing structure, Progent has been able to increase our client list dramatically while providing consulting support to numerous businesses in Northern California and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared information base, and a group strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a talented staff and a loyal client list.

For an information technology consultant with technical support expertise, joining Progent or working for our clients can enhance your knowledge through cooperation with our group of highly team-oriented, talented consultants. Our commitment to delivering network consulting and computer support to small and midsize organizations will offer you the chance to work closely with key players and contribute significantly to the growth of exciting companies.

We are hiring technical professionals that can show recognized certification related to their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. In the case of Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should show you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or other leading security credentials. Naturally, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, simply because a certificate can not guarantee excellence is no excuse for not owning one. If you know your field, then the majority of those certifications should present no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients expect certifications. Progent can market your skills, but you should have standard credentials for Progent to work with. If you stand strongly against the concept of credentials, Progent can understand and respect your position, but you are likely not a good fit.

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

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a better consultant by improving your information technology knowledge and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the top consulting experts for you to operate with, providing an advanced network and communications architecture, using proprietary software tools to enable the highest level of support, and by optimizing proven business structures for attracting and retaining customers.

The main factor that separates us from ordinary network support firms is the quality of our consulting team. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined Progent, we have assembled top talent covering a wide range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other key areas, we engage professionals who can enable you to be successful on larger jobs by combining the aggregate skills of Progent's group of experts.

To promote the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in making available the best technology to perform the job efficiently. We will leverage technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables seamless communications, cooperation, and information exchange with other Progent consultants — all from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose revenue because of regular drives to a conventional office building, and any driving you do for in-person client jobs is based on your own schedule, not ours. The most attractive part is that much of Progent's consulting work can be performed off-site, representing 100% productivity for billable hours. In practice, some of our staff do off-site consulting only.

Our business structure is geared towards responding quickly and effectively to customer requirements through information exchange and cooperative problem solving. Although our engineers work with a great deal of independence, dispatching is centralized, client problems and resolutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and organized for easy reference, current consultant schedules are published to facilitate group projects and enable problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation through periodic workgroup meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of our team is located across Northern California, however we are attracting a quickly expanding team of consulting experts throughout America. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic obstacles that limit the productivity of traditional company structures. We complete the package by providing a full benefit program to promote the physical health and financial security of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, our marketing and administration groups live up to the high standards that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to our growth are enabling us to target and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are currently engaging every month. Progent recently celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective marketing organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a continual series of technical challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Customers rely on consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, advanced deployments, vexing or entrenched issues, and difficult 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 traditional corporate roles. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will work with some great folks, both by building close client contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused company through and through. If you don’t have strong people skills or like working with a diverse group of people, then Progent is probably not a good match.

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