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

Progent wants to hire staff-level, results-driven Microsoft certified engineers with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited network engineers with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security consultants with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security certification; and high-end system design consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, disaster recovery, data preservation, and VMware. Progent also is looking for professionals who can work on Progent's team of help desk service specialists and remote troubleshooting professionals. Also, Progent is hiring talented administrators able to perform productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of skilled and motivated professionals, delivering attentive client services, and following a competitive value-focused pricing model, We have been able to expand our client base rapidly while providing consulting services to numerous businesses in Northern California and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared information database, and a team strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a satisfied customer list.

For an information technology consultant with technical support experience, joining Progent or helping Progent's customers will expand your skills through interaction with Progent's staff of highly team-oriented, expert engineers. Our commitment to providing network expertise and technical help to small companies will give you the opportunity to work intimately with key players and contribute appreciably to the success of exciting businesses.

We are hiring technical professionals who have recognized credentials in their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. In the case of Cisco professionals, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should show you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Still, the fact that a credential can not ensure excellence is no excuse for not earning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of these certifications should present no great difficulty. The point is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients expect certifications. Progent can broadcast your talents, but you need to have basic credentials for Progent to market. If you happen to be strongly against the idea of credentials, we can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are likely not a good candidate.

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

Progent's company culture will make you a more capable consulting professional by enhancing your information technology skills and boosting the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the best professional talent for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, using custom application tools to deliver the maximum quality of support, and by optimizing proven business models for attracting and retaining customers.

The main factor that separates Progent from other network support companies is the quality of our consulting team. Among the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled top expertise across a wide range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Mac, Linux, server virtualization, or other vital application, we deploy professionals who can help you to be effective on larger jobs by combining the aggregate experience of our group of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of our consultants, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful technology to perform the job properly. We will leverage information technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables seamless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent team members — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose revenue with daily commutes to a conventional office building, and any travel you do for in-person client jobs is determined by your time table, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that most of our consulting work can be performed remotely, offering 100% efficiency for billable hours. In practice, some of our team members do off-site consulting exclusively.

Progent's business structure is set up for reacting rapidly and effectively to client needs via knowledge exchange and collaborative problem solving. Although Progent's engineers work with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is unified, customer issues and resolutions are carefully tracked, documented, and archived for easy reference, current consultant availability is published to facilitate team tasks and enable problem escalation, and client satisfaction is continually monitored. We reinforce the sense of connection via periodic workgroup meetings and regular company-wide events.

Most of our consultants are located across California, however we are attracting a rapidly growing team of network professionals from across the U.S. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic obstacles that limit the efficiency of traditional company models. We complete the package by offering a full benefit program to ensure the health and financial security of our team members and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and administration groups live up to the excellence that characterizes Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s growth are helping us to target and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are currently acquiring each month. Progent lately celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong sales operation.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of network challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Clients rely on consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, leading-edge deployments, vexing or chronic issues, and difficult migrations are the basis for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for computer professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by building strong customer relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you don’t offer strong people skills or enjoy working with a diverse group of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good match.

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