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

Progent wants to find full-time, results-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco accredited system engineers with Cisco credentials; security professionals who have CISA or equivalent security credentials; and high-end network architecture experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, fault tolerance, disaster recovery, information protection, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks professionals to work on Progent's staff of helpdesk support technicians and off-site troubleshooting professionals. In addition, Progent is looking for experienced managers who can operate productively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a staff of talented and motivated consultants, providing attentive client services, and following a strong results-focused pricing model, We have been able to expand our client list dramatically while delivering consulting services to numerous companies in Northern California and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a shared knowledge base, and a team strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to retain a skilled staff and a loyal customer list.

For an information technology professional with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or working for our customers will enhance your skills through interaction with Progent's staff of mutually supportive, talented engineers. Progent's focus on delivering information technology expertise and technical support to small companies will give you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with key players and contribute significantly to the growth of dynamic companies.

We are looking for consultants who can show recognized credentials related to their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco professionals, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should have you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security certifications. Of course, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, simply because a credential does not guarantee expertise is no excuse for not having one. If you know your field, then most of those certifications should present no challenge. The bottom line is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients deserve to see credentials. We can promote your skills, but you must provide a baseline of certifications for us to work with. If you stand strongly opposed to the concept of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are probably not a good candidate.

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Working with a Great Team of Network Consultants

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a better consultant by enhancing your technical skills and boosting the loyalty of your customers. Progent makes good on this commitment by recruiting the top professional experts for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, running proprietary software tools to enable the maximum quality of service, and by streamlining our business structures for finding and retaining clients.

The most important factor that distinguishes us from ordinary consulting companies is the high quality of our support professionals. Among the scores of consulting experts who have joined us, we have recruited top talent covering a wide range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other crucial areas, we engage professionals who can help you to be effective on larger jobs by leveraging the collective experience of Progent's group of professionals.

To promote the success of our consultants, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful tools to perform the work properly. Progent will exploit information technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables effortless communications, cooperation, and information exchange with other Progent consultants — all from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of daily commutes to a conventional office building, and any travel you do for in-person customer work is based on your own schedule, not ours. The best part is that most of our support work can be performed remotely, offering maximum efficiency for income-producing hours. In practice, some of our team members do off-site support exclusively.

Progent's business structure is set up for responding rapidly and effectively to client requirements via knowledge sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Even though our engineers operate with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is centralized, client problems and solutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for easy reference, current consultant schedules are broadcast to facilitate team projects and simplify problem escalation, and client approval is continually evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation through periodic workgroup conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's consultants are located throughout California, but Progent is building a rapidly expanding group of consulting professionals throughout the U.S. Progent's virtual office environment eliminates regional boundaries that limit the efficiency of traditional business models. We enhance the deal by offering a full employee care program to promote the physical health and economic welfare of our team members and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, Progent's sales and operations teams match the high standards that characterizes Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s growth are helping us to identify and sign up the scores of new clients we are currently engaging every month. We lately marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales operation.

Possessing 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 network challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Customers choose consultants to do the toughest jobs. Creative projects, advanced implementations, puzzling or chronic problems, and tricky migrations are the foundation for what we do daily. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for computer engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning excited about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by establishing close customer relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented organization heart and soul. If you do not offer excellent people skills or enjoy working with a diverse assortment of personalities, then we are probably a poor match.

If this sounds good to you, we urge you to contact Progent about our vision of the future of network consulting.
