Career Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent wants to find staff-level, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco certified network engineers who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security consultants with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security credentials; and high-end network design experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high availability, workplace recovery, data preservation, and VMware. Progent also is hiring employees to work on our team of desktop service technicians and remote troubleshooting professionals. Also, Progent is hiring experienced administrators able to perform productively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of talented and dedicated consultants, providing attentive customer services, and offering a strong value-focused pricing model, We have been able to expand our client base dramatically while providing consulting support to hundreds of companies in Northern California and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a common knowledge base, and a team approach to problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a loyal client list.

For an information technology consultant with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or helping Progent's clients will enhance your skills through interaction with Progent's staff of mutually team-oriented, expert engineers. Progent's focus on providing network consulting and computer support to small and midsize companies will offer you the opportunity to collaborate closely with decision makers and add appreciably to the growth of dynamic companies.

We are hiring consultants that can show recognized certification related to their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your MCSE certificate. For Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other leading security credentials. Naturally, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” Still, simply because a credential does not ensure excellence is no excuse for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of those certifications should present no challenge. The point is that if you are a professional, then customers deserve to see credentials. Progent will promote your skills, but you need to have basic certifications for us to work with. In case you happen to be strongly opposed to the concept of certifications, Progent can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not a good candidate.

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Working with a Great Group of Network Consultants

Progent's work environment will make you a better professional by improving your information technology knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the top professional talent for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, using specialized application utilities to enable the maximum quality of support, and by streamlining proven operational structures for attracting and maintaining customers.

The main factor that separates Progent from ordinary network support companies is the quality of our support professionals. Out of the scores of consultants who have joined us, we have assembled the best expertise covering a wide array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other vital application, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be successful on larger projects by combining the collective experience of Progent's team of professionals.

To promote the success of Progent's team, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful technology to do the job efficiently. Progent will leverage information technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables effortless communications, collaboration, and information exchange with fellow Progent consultants — all from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose income with regular commutes to a conventional office, and all travel you do for on-site client jobs is determined by your time table, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that much of our consulting work can be done off-site, representing 100% efficiency for billable hours. In practice, some of our staff do remote consulting exclusively.

Our business structure is set up for reacting rapidly and efficiently to client needs through information exchange and cooperative problem solving. Although our consultants work with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is centralized, customer problems and resolutions are carefully monitored, documented, and archived for convenient retrieval, up-to-date consultant schedules are published to facilitate team tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and client approval is continually monitored. We strengthen the feeling of connection through periodic team conferences and regular company-wide events.

Most of Progent's team is located across Northern California, but Progent is attracting a rapidly expanding group of network professionals throughout the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional obstacles that limit the efficiency of conventional business structures. We complete the deal by providing a comprehensive employee care program to ensure the health and economic security of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, our sales and administration teams match the excellence that defines Progent. These top-notch factors behind our growth are helping us to identify and land the 50-60 new clients we are currently engaging each month. We recently marked the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also a strong marketing organization.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a key for growth with us. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of technical challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Clients choose consultants to do the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, advanced deployments, puzzling or chronic problems, and tricky migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for network engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by establishing close customer contacts and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused company from top to bottom. If you do not have strong people skills or like cooperating with a diverse assortment of people, then we are probably a poor match.

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

Get Quality of Life Improvements and Professional Prowess with
Our Sophisticated Virtual Office Environment

Progent believes that a carefully designed and executed network is a crucial factor for enabling a company's success, and Progent follows this philosophy in our own system environment.
