More Information Concerning Work with Us

Staff Work for Network Consultants, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent wants to hire fulltime, results-driven Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP certification; Cisco accredited network engineers who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security professionals with CISSP or comparable security certification; and high-end network design consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, disaster recovery, data protection, and VMware. Progent also is looking for professionals who can work on Progent's staff of desktop support specialists and off-site troubleshooting professionals. In addition, We are looking for talented managers able to perform productively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of skilled and dedicated professionals, delivering world-class customer services, and offering a competitive results-based pricing model, We have been able to increase our customer list dramatically while delivering consulting support to hundreds of companies in Northern California and throughout the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a common information database, and a team strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a satisfied customer list.

For a network consultant with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or working for our customers can enhance your knowledge via cooperation with our group of highly team-oriented, expert consultants. Our commitment to providing network expertise and computer support to small organizations will give you the opportunity to work closely with key players and add appreciably to the success of exciting businesses.

We are hiring technical professionals that can show recognized certification in their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your Microsoft MCSE certificate. For Cisco experts, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP credential. For security, you should have you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or one of the other leading security credentials. Of course, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Still, the fact that a certificate does not ensure excellence is no reason for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of those certifications should be no great difficulty. The point is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then customers deserve to see credentials. Progent can broadcast your skills, but you must have standard credentials for Progent to work with. If you happen to be strongly opposed to the idea of credentials, we can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

To promote the success of our team, we invest significantly in making available the best technology to perform the job efficiently. We will exploit technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables seamless connectivity, cooperation, and information sharing with fellow Progent consultants — all from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit income with regular commutes to a conventional office, and all driving you do for in-person client work is determined by your own time table, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that most of Progent's support services can be done off-site, representing maximum efficiency for billable time. In practice, some Progent team members do remote consulting exclusively.

Our operations are geared towards reacting quickly and effectively to customer needs through information sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Although our engineers work with a high level of independence, resource allocation is centralized, customer problems and resolutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and organized for convenient retrieval, up-to-date consultant schedules are published to facilitate group projects and enable trouble escalation, and customer approval is always evaluated. We reinforce the sense of connection through monthly workgroup meetings and regular corporate events.

The majority of our team is located across Northern California, however Progent is attracting a quickly growing group of consulting professionals throughout America. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic obstacles that limit the efficiency of traditional company structures. We complete the package by offering a comprehensive employee care program to ensure the health and economic welfare of our team members and their families.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's sales and operations groups live up to the excellence that is Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s success are enabling us to target and land the scores of new customers we are now acquiring each month. We recently celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong sales operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for success with us. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a continual series of technical challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Customers choose consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Creative projects, advanced implementations, vexing or chronic problems, and tricky upgrades are the basis for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for computer professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every morning excited about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will work with some great people, both by establishing strong client contacts and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused company heart and soul. If you don’t offer excellent people skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied assortment of people, then Progent is probably a poor fit.

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