Details About Work with Us

Career Work for Network Consultants, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent wants to hire full-time, results-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco certified system consultants who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security consultants with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security credentials; and advanced system design consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high uptime, disaster recovery, data preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring employees who can join Progent's staff of desktop service specialists and off-site troubleshooting professionals. Also, Progent is seeking talented managers who can perform effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of talented and motivated professionals, delivering world-class client services, and following a strong value-focused pricing model, Progent has managed to increase our customer base dramatically while providing consulting services to numerous businesses in Northern California and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common information base, and a group approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a satisfied client list.

For a network consultant with technical support expertise, joining Progent or working for Progent's clients can expand your skills through interaction with Progent's staff of highly supportive, expert consultants. Our commitment to providing information technology consulting and computer help to small and midsize organizations will give you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the success of exciting companies.

Progent is looking for consultants that have verifiable certification in their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. For Cisco consultants, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should have you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security credentials. Of course, we are familiar with "paper experts". However, the fact that a certificate can not guarantee excellence is no justification for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of those certifications should present no challenge. The point is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then clients expect credentials. Progent will market your talents, but you should provide standard credentials for us to market. If you stand strongly opposed to the idea of credentials, Progent can understand and respect your opinion, but you are likely not a good fit.

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Network Engineers

Progent's work environment will make you a better professional by improving your information technology skills and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by recruiting the best professional experts for you to operate with, providing an advanced system infrastructure, using specialized software tools to enable the maximum quality of support, and by optimizing proven business models for attracting and keeping clients.

The most important factor that differentiates Progent from ordinary network support companies is the high quality of our support professionals. Among the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have assembled top expertise across a broad array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other vital technologies, we engage professionals who can enable you to be successful on major projects by leveraging the aggregate skills of our group of professionals.

To ensure the success of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in providing the best tools to do the job efficiently. Progent will exploit information technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables seamless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent team members — all from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit income because of regular commutes to a physical office, and all travel you do for in-person customer work is determined by your own time table, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that much of Progent's consulting work can be performed remotely, representing 100% efficiency for billable hours. In practice, some Progent team members do remote support only.

Progent's operations are geared towards responding quickly and efficiently to customer needs via knowledge exchange and cooperative problem solving. Even though our engineers operate with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is centralized, customer problems and solutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and archived for easy reference, up-to-date engineer availability is broadcast to streamline group projects and simplify trouble escalation, and client approval is always monitored. We strengthen the sense of cooperation through periodic workgroup conferences and regular company-wide events.

Most of our team is located throughout Northern California, but we are attracting a rapidly expanding group of consulting professionals throughout the U.S. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic boundaries that restrict the efficiency of traditional company models. We enhance the deal by offering a comprehensive employee care program to ensure the physical health and financial welfare of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, our sales and administration groups match the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s success are enabling us to target and sign up the scores of new customers we are currently acquiring each month. Progent 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 sales operation.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for success with us. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a steady series of technical challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Clients choose consulting firms to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or chronic problems, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for network professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by establishing close customer relationships and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you don’t offer strong communications skills or like cooperating with a diverse group of personalities, then Progent is probably not a good fit.

If all this sounds right for you, we urge you to contact us about our vision of the future of network consulting.

Enjoy Quality of Life Improvements and Technical Success with
