More Information Concerning Opportunities with Us

Fulltime Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to find fulltime, results-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco accredited network engineers who have Cisco CCIE credentials; security professionals who have CISA or comparable security credentials; and high-end network architecture consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high uptime, workplace recovery, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring professionals who can work on our team of helpdesk support specialists and remote troubleshooting experts. Also, We are seeking experienced administrators able to operate effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of talented and dedicated professionals, providing attentive customer care, and following a strong results-based pricing structure, We have managed to expand our customer list rapidly while delivering consulting services to hundreds of companies in Northern California and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a common knowledge database, and a team approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied client list.

If you are a network professional with technical support experience, joining Progent or helping our customers will enhance your knowledge via cooperation with Progent's group of mutually supportive, talented consultants. Progent's focus on providing network consulting and technical help to small and midsize companies will offer you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with key players and add appreciably to the growth of dynamic companies.

Progent is looking for technical professionals that have recognized certification related to their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. In the case of Cisco experts, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security certifications. Naturally, we are aware of "paper experts". Notwithstanding, simply because a certificate can not guarantee excellence is no reason for not earning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of those certifications should be no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you are a professional, then clients deserve to see certifications. Progent can promote your skills, but you need to provide a baseline of certifications for us to market. If you stand strongly opposed to the concept of credentials, we can understand and honor your opinion, but you are probably not a good fit.

Improve Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Working with the Top Team of Network Engineers

Progent's business climate will make you a more capable consulting professional by improving your information technology skills and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by recruiting the top consulting experts for you to work with, providing an advanced network and communications architecture, using proprietary application tools to enable the maximum quality of service, and by streamlining our business structures for attracting and retaining clients.

The main factor that distinguishes us from most network support firms is the excellence of our consulting team. Among the 50 or so consultants who have joined us, we have assembled the best expertise across a broad range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Mac, Linux, server virtualization, or other vital technologies, we engage experts who can enable you to be effective on major jobs by combining the aggregate experience of Progent's group of experts.

To promote the productivity of our team, we invest heavily in providing the best technology to do the job properly. Progent will exploit information technology to an extraordinary degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables effortless communications, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with other Progent team members — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit income with daily drives to a conventional office, and any driving you do for in-person client work is determined by your own time table, not ours. The best benefit is that most of Progent's consulting services can be performed off-site, offering maximum productivity for billable hours. In practice, some Progent staff do off-site consulting only.

Progent's business structure is geared towards responding rapidly and efficiently to client needs via information sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Even though Progent's engineers work with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, customer issues and solutions are carefully monitored, documented, and organized for easy reference, current consultant schedules are published to facilitate team projects and enable trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is always evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of connection through monthly team conferences and regular company-wide events.

Most of our consultants are located across Northern California, but we are attracting a quickly expanding group of consulting professionals from across the U.S. Progent's virtual office environment does away with regional obstacles that restrict the productivity of conventional company structures. We enhance the package by providing a full benefit plan to promote the health and economic welfare of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and administration teams match the high standards that defines Progent. These high-performance factors behind our success are helping us to identify and sign up the scores of new clients we are currently engaging every month. We lately celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing operation.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with us. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a continual series of network challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Clients rely on consultants to perform the toughest jobs. Creative projects, advanced implementations, vexing or chronic issues, and tricky migrations are the basis for our services daily. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for network engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every morning excited about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by establishing close customer relationships and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you do not have excellent people skills or like cooperating with a diverse group of personalities, then we are in all likelihood a poor fit.

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

Get Quality of Life Improvements and Professional Success with
Our Sophisticated Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent is convinced that a well architected and executed network can be a crucial factor for accelerating any company's success, and Progent applies this belief in our own network environment.
