Career Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Service Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent also seeks employees to work on our team of desktop support technicians and remote troubleshooting professionals.

Our commitment to providing network expertise and technical help to small and midsize organizations will offer you the chance to collaborate intimately with key players and add significantly to the growth of exciting companies.

We are looking for consultants that can show verifiable credentials in their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential.

Of course, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Still, the fact that a credential can not guarantee excellence is no reason for not having one. If you know your field, then most of these certifications should pose no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you are a professional, then clients expect credentials. We can broadcast your skills, but you must provide a baseline of certifications for Progent to market. In case you happen to be adamantly against the concept of certifications, we can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

Progent delivers on this commitment by recruiting the best consulting talent for you to operate with, providing an advanced system architecture, running proprietary software tools to deliver the highest level of service, and by optimizing our business structures for attracting and keeping clients.

The most important factor that separates us from typical network support companies is the excellence of our support professionals. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have recruited the best talent across a broad array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Mac, Linux, server virtualization, or other key technologies, we deploy professionals who can help you to be successful on larger projects by combining the aggregate experience of Progent's team of professionals.

To promote the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest significantly in making available the best technology to do the job properly. We will leverage information technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables effortless communications, collaboration, and information exchange with fellow Progent team members — all from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or lose income because of regular drives to a physical office building, and any travel you do for in-person client work is determined by your time table, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that most of Progent's consulting work can be done remotely, representing 100% productivity for income-producing hours. In practice, some of our team members do off-site consulting only.

Our business structure is set up for responding rapidly and efficiently to customer needs through information sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Although Progent's consultants work with a high level of freedom, dispatching is centralized, client issues and solutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and archived for convenient reference, up-to-date engineer availability is published to streamline group projects and enable problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is always evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation through monthly workgroup conferences and regular company-wide events.

Most of our team is situated throughout California, however we are building a quickly growing team of consulting experts from across America. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional boundaries that limit the productivity of conventional business models. We complete the package by offering a full benefit plan to promote the health and economic welfare of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consultants, Progent's sales and administration teams live up to the excellence that characterizes Progent.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a steady series of technical challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Clients rely on consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, advanced deployments, vexing or chronic issues, and tricky upgrades are the basis for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for computer professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every morning excited about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by building strong customer contacts and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused company through and through. If you don’t offer strong people skills or like working with a varied group of personalities, then we are probably a poor fit.

If this seems right for you, we invite you to talk to Progent about our view of the new paradigm of network consulting.
