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

Progent wants to hire full-time, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco certified system consultants who have Cisco CCIE credentials; security consultants who have CISA or equivalent security certification; and high-end network architecture experts with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high uptime, workplace recovery, data preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for professionals to join our team of desktop support technicians and off-site troubleshooting professionals. Also, Progent is hiring experienced administrators who can perform effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of talented and motivated consultants, providing attentive client care, and offering a competitive value-based fee structure, Progent has been able to expand our customer list dramatically while providing professional services to numerous businesses in Northern California and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared information base, and a group approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied client list.

If you are a network professional with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or helping Progent's clients will expand your knowledge through interaction with our group of mutually supportive, expert consultants. Progent's commitment to delivering information technology consulting and computer support to small companies will offer you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the success of exciting businesses.

Progent is looking for technical professionals that can show verifiable certification related to their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your MCSE credential. For Cisco experts, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Nevertheless, simply because a credential does not guarantee excellence is no excuse for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of these certifications should present no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients deserve to see credentials. We can broadcast your skills, but you must have a baseline of credentials for us to work with. In case you happen to be adamantly opposed to the concept of credentials, Progent can understand and honor your opinion, but you are probably not a good fit.

Enhance Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Computer Engineers

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a better consulting professional by improving your technical knowledge and boosting the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the top consulting talent for you to work with, providing an advanced network and communications infrastructure, running specialized software tools to enable the maximum level of service, and by streamlining our business models for finding and maintaining customers.

The main factor that differentiates us from other network support firms is the high caliber of our consulting team. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled top talent covering a broad array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Mac, Linux, VMware, or other key technologies, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be successful on larger jobs by combining the collective skills of Progent's team of experts.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful technology to perform the work properly. Progent will exploit information technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office environment allows effortless connectivity, collaboration, and information sharing with other Progent team members — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of regular commutes to a conventional office building, and any driving you do for in-person customer work is based on your time table, not ours. The best benefit is that most of our consulting work can be done remotely, representing 100% efficiency for billable hours. In practice, some of our team members do off-site support only.

Our business structure is geared towards responding rapidly and efficiently to client requirements via knowledge sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Even though Progent's engineers work with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is unified, client issues and solutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and organized for convenient reference, current consultant schedules are published to streamline group projects and simplify problem escalation, and client approval is continually evaluated. We strengthen the sense of cooperation through periodic team conferences and regular company-wide events.

The majority of our consultants are located across Northern California, but Progent is building a quickly growing team of consulting experts throughout the U.S. Our virtual office environment eliminates regional obstacles that restrict the productivity of conventional business structures. We complete the deal by providing a full employee care plan to promote the health and financial security of our team members and their families.

Just as we have awesome consultants, Progent's sales and administration teams live up to the excellence that defines Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s growth are helping us to target and land the 50-60 new customers we are currently engaging each month. Progent recently marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also a strong marketing operation.

Possessing a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with us. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of network challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Clients rely on a consultant to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, advanced deployments, vexing or entrenched issues, and difficult migrations are the foundation for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every day excited about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will meet some great folks, both by establishing close client relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused organization from top to bottom. If you do not offer excellent communications skills or like cooperating with a diverse group of people, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good match.

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