Staff Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco accredited system consultants with Cisco CCIE or CCNP credentials; security consultants who have CISM or equivalent security credentials; and advanced system design experts with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, fault tolerance, disaster recovery, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring employees to work on Progent's staff of desktop service specialists and off-site support experts. Also, We are hiring talented administrators who can perform effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of talented and motivated consultants, providing attentive client care, and offering a strong results-based pricing structure, Progent has managed to increase our customer base dramatically while delivering consulting support to numerous businesses in Northern California and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a shared information base, and a group strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a loyal client list.

For an information technology professional with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or helping our clients can expand your knowledge through interaction with Progent's staff of mutually supportive, talented engineers. Progent's focus on providing information technology consulting and computer help to small organizations will offer you the chance to work intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the success of dynamic businesses.

We are looking for consultants who can show verifiable credentials in their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco professionals, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other top security credentials. Of course, we are aware of "paper experts". Nevertheless, the fact that a credential does not ensure excellence is no justification for not earning one. If you have mastered your field, then most of those certifications should pose no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients deserve to see credentials. Progent can broadcast your skills, but you must provide a baseline of credentials for Progent to market. If you happen to be adamantly against the idea of credentials, we can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Enhance Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's company culture will make you a better consultant by enhancing your technical skills and boosting the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this commitment by recruiting the best professional talent for you to work with, providing an advanced system infrastructure, using specialized software tools to deliver the maximum quality of service, and by optimizing proven business structures for attracting and retaining customers.

The decisive factor that distinguishes Progent from typical network support firms is the high quality of our support professionals. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited the best talent across a broad array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other vital technologies, we engage experts who can enable you to be effective on major jobs by combining the aggregate skills of our team of experts.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's team, we invest heavily in providing the best tools to perform the work properly. Progent will exploit information technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables seamless connectivity, collaboration, and information exchange with fellow Progent consultants — all from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose income with daily commutes to a physical office building, and all driving you do for on-site customer work is based on your own schedule, not ours. The best part is that most of our support work can be done off-site, offering maximum productivity for billable hours. In practice, some of our staff do off-site support exclusively.

Our operations are geared towards reacting quickly and efficiently to customer requirements through knowledge sharing and collaborative problem solving. Even though Progent's engineers work with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, customer problems and solutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and organized for easy retrieval, up-to-date engineer availability is published to facilitate group tasks and enable problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is always evaluated. We strengthen the sense of connection via monthly team meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's consultants are situated throughout Northern California, but we are attracting a quickly growing group of consulting professionals throughout the U.S. Our virtual office environment does away with regional boundaries that restrict the efficiency of traditional business structures. We enhance the deal by providing a full benefit plan to ensure the health and financial welfare of our employees and their families.

Just as we have awesome consultants, Progent's marketing and operations teams match the excellence that is Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s growth are enabling us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are currently engaging every month. Progent recently marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective marketing organization.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a key for success with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of network challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Clients rely on consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, advanced implementations, puzzling or entrenched issues, and difficult migrations are the basis for our services daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning excited about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by establishing close client relationships and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization through and through. If you don’t have strong communications skills or like cooperating with a diverse assortment of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor match.

If all this sounds right for you, we urge you to talk to Progent about our view of the new paradigm of network consulting.
