Additional Facts Concerning Work with Us

Fulltime Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, solutions-driven Microsoft certified consultants with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco certified system engineers with CCIE credentials; security professionals who have CISM or comparable security credentials; and high-end network architecture consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, service continuity, disaster recovery, information protection, and VMware. Progent also is looking for professionals who can work on Progent's staff of help desk service specialists and off-site support experts. In addition, We are seeking talented managers able to perform effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of talented and motivated consultants, delivering world-class client care, and following a strong results-based pricing structure, We have been able to increase our customer base dramatically while providing professional services to hundreds of companies in Northern California and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared knowledge base, and a group strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied client base.

If you are a network professional with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's customers can enhance your knowledge via cooperation with our staff of highly team-oriented, talented consultants. Progent's commitment to delivering information technology expertise and computer support to small and midsize organizations will offer you the opportunity to work intimately with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the success of dynamic companies.

Progent is looking for consultants who have verifiable certification in their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your MCSE credential. For Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or CCNP credential. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” However, simply because a credential can not ensure excellence is no justification for not having one. If you know your field, then the majority of these tests should present no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then customers expect certifications. Progent will market your skills, but you should provide standard credentials for us to work with. In case you are strongly opposed to the idea of credentials, we can understand and honor your opinion, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Improve Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's company culture will make you a better consultant by improving your information technology knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the best consulting experts for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications infrastructure, running specialized application tools to enable the highest level of support, and by optimizing proven business structures for attracting and maintaining clients.

The most important factor that differentiates Progent from most consulting companies is the high quality of our consultants. Among the scores of consultants who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited top talent across a wide array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Mac, Linux, VMware, or other key areas, we engage professionals who can enable you to be effective on major projects by leveraging the aggregate skills of our group of professionals.

To ensure the success of our consultants, we invest heavily in providing the best tools to perform the work properly. We will exploit technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables effortless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with other Progent team members — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or lose revenue with daily drives to a physical office building, and any driving you do for on-site customer work is based on your own schedule, not Progent's. The best benefit is that most of our support services can be done off-site, representing 100% efficiency for billable time. In practice, some of our staff do remote consulting exclusively.

Progent's business structure is set up for reacting rapidly and effectively to client needs via information sharing and collaborative problem solving. Even though our consultants operate with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is unified, customer issues and resolutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and archived for convenient retrieval, up-to-date engineer availability is published to streamline group projects and simplify trouble escalation, and client approval is continually monitored. We reinforce the feeling of connection through monthly workgroup conferences and regular company-wide events.

The majority of our consultants are situated across California, but we are attracting a quickly growing team of network experts throughout America. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic obstacles that restrict the productivity of traditional business structures. We complete the package by offering a full employee care plan to ensure the health and economic welfare of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, our marketing and operations groups live up to the excellence that characterizes Progent. These top-notch factors behind our success are enabling us to target and sign up the scores of new customers we are now acquiring every month. Progent lately celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing operation.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a steady series of technical challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Clients choose consultants to do the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, advanced deployments, vexing or entrenched problems, and tricky migrations are the basis for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for network professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by establishing close customer relationships and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you don’t offer strong people skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied group of personalities, then we are probably a poor match.

If this seems good to you, we invite you to talk to us about our view of the future of information technology consulting.
