Additional Facts About Jobs with Us

Fulltime Jobs for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent wants to hire full-time, results-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited network engineers who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security consultants with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security certification; and advanced system architecture consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high uptime, business continuity, data preservation, and VMware. Progent also is looking for professionals who can join our team of helpdesk support technicians and remote support professionals. Also, We are looking for talented administrators able to operate productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of talented and motivated consultants, delivering world-class client care, and following a competitive results-based fee structure, Progent has managed to expand our client base dramatically while delivering consulting services to hundreds of companies in Northern California and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a common knowledge base, and a group approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a talented staff and a loyal customer base.

If you are a network consultant with technical support expertise, joining Progent or helping Progent's clients can enhance your skills through interaction with our group of highly supportive, talented consultants. Progent's focus on delivering network expertise and computer help to small companies will give you the chance to collaborate intimately with key players and contribute appreciably to the growth of dynamic businesses.

We are hiring consultants who have verifiable credentials in their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have 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, CISM, or one of the other leading security credentials. Naturally, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, the fact that a credential does not ensure expertise is no reason for not owning one. If you know your field, then the majority of those certifications should present no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then customers deserve to see certifications. We will broadcast your skills, but you must provide a baseline of certifications for Progent to work with. If you are adamantly opposed to the idea of credentials, we can understand and honor your position, but you are likely not a good fit.

Consultants don’t waste time or lose income with daily drives to a physical office, and all driving you do for on-site client work is determined by your own time table, not Progent's. The best part is that most of our consulting services can be done remotely, offering maximum productivity for billable time. In practice, some Progent staff do remote support exclusively.

Our business structure is set up for reacting rapidly and efficiently to client requirements via knowledge sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Even though Progent's engineers work with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, client problems and solutions are carefully monitored, documented, and archived for convenient reference, up-to-date engineer schedules are broadcast to streamline team projects and enable trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is always evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of connection through periodic team meetings and regular company-wide events.
