Staff Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent wants to find fulltime, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco certified system engineers who have Cisco CCIE certification; security professionals who have CISA or comparable security credentials; and advanced network architecture consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high availability, business continuity, information protection, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks employees who can join Progent's team of desktop support specialists and remote troubleshooting experts. In addition, We are seeking experienced managers able to perform effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of talented and dedicated consultants, delivering attentive client services, and offering a strong results-focused fee structure, Progent has managed to expand our customer list rapidly while delivering consulting services to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and across the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a common information base, and a group strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a loyal customer base.

For an information technology professional with technical support expertise, joining Progent or working for our customers will expand your skills through interaction with our group of highly team-oriented, talented consultants. Our commitment to delivering information technology consulting and technical support to small and midsize organizations will give you the opportunity to work intimately with key players and contribute appreciably to the success of exciting businesses.

We are hiring consultants that can show verifiable credentials in their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco experts, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security credentials. Of course, we are familiar with "paper experts". Nevertheless, the fact that a certificate does not ensure excellence is no excuse for not having one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of those tests should present no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself an expert, then customers deserve to see credentials. Progent can market your skills, but you should provide standard credentials for us to market. If you stand adamantly against the idea of credentials, we can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are probably not a good fit.

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

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a better professional by enhancing your technical skills and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the top professional experts for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art system architecture, using custom software tools to enable the highest level of support, and by optimizing our operational structures for attracting and maintaining customers.

The decisive factor that distinguishes us from ordinary consulting companies is the quality of our support professionals. Among the scores of consulting experts who have joined us, we have assembled the best expertise covering a wide range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other vital application, we engage professionals who can help you to be successful on major jobs by leveraging the aggregate skills of Progent's group of experts.

To promote the success of our consultants, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful tools to perform the job efficiently. Progent will exploit technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables effortless communications, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent team members — entirely from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit income with regular drives to a conventional office, and all travel you do for on-site client work is determined by your time table, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that much of Progent's consulting work can be performed remotely, offering 100% efficiency for billable time. In practice, some Progent team members do remote support only.

Progent's operations are geared towards responding rapidly and effectively to customer requirements through knowledge exchange and collaborative problem solving. Although our consultants operate with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is centralized, customer issues and resolutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for convenient reference, up-to-date engineer schedules are broadcast to facilitate team projects and enable trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is always monitored. We reinforce the sense of connection through monthly workgroup meetings and regular corporate events.

Most of our team is situated across California, but we are building a rapidly growing team of network professionals throughout the U.S. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic boundaries that restrict the efficiency of conventional company structures. We enhance the deal by providing a comprehensive employee care program to promote the physical health and economic security of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consultants, Progent's marketing and administration teams live up to the excellence that defines Progent. These high-performance contributors to our growth are helping us to target and land the scores of new clients we are now 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 Progent is also an effective marketing organization.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of network challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Customers choose consulting firms to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or entrenched issues, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for computer professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every day excited about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by establishing close customer relationships and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization heart and soul. If you don’t offer excellent communications skills or like cooperating with a varied assortment of people, then Progent is probably a poor fit.

If all this seems good to you, we invite you to talk to Progent about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
