Staff Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Support Professionals

Progent wants to find fulltime, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco accredited network consultants who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security consultants with CISA or comparable security credentials; and high-end system architecture consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, fault tolerance, business continuity, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for professionals to work on Progent's staff of helpdesk support specialists and remote support experts. Also, Progent is seeking talented managers able to perform effectively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of talented and dedicated professionals, delivering attentive customer services, and offering a competitive value-based fee model, We have been able to increase our client base dramatically while providing professional services to numerous businesses in Northern California and across the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared knowledge database, and a group approach to problem solving have helped Progent to retain a talented staff and a loyal client base.

If you are a network consultant with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's customers can enhance your skills via interaction with our group of highly supportive, expert consultants. Progent's focus on delivering information technology expertise and computer support to small and midsize organizations will offer you the opportunity to collaborate closely with decision makers and add appreciably to the success of exciting companies.

Progent is looking for consultants that can show recognized credentials related to their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your Microsoft MCSE certificate. For Cisco consultants, show us your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security credentials. Of course, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” Still, the fact that a credential can not ensure excellence is no excuse for not having one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of those certifications should pose no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients expect certifications. Progent will broadcast your skills, but you must provide a baseline of credentials for Progent to work with. If you happen to be strongly opposed to the concept of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Enhance Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Computer Consultants

Progent's company culture will make you a more capable professional by enhancing your technical skills and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by recruiting the top professional talent for you to work with, providing an advanced network and communications infrastructure, running proprietary application utilities to enable the maximum quality of service, and by streamlining proven operational structures for attracting and maintaining customers.

The most important factor that distinguishes Progent from most consulting firms is the excellence of our service staff. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled the best expertise covering a wide array of technologies. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other crucial application, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be effective on major jobs by combining the aggregate experience of our group of experts.

To promote the success of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in making available the best tools to perform the work efficiently. Progent will leverage information technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office environment enables effortless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent team members — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit revenue because of regular drives to a physical office building, and all travel you do for in-person customer work is determined by your own time table, not Progent's. The best benefit is that much of our consulting work can be performed remotely, offering 100% productivity for billable time. In practice, some Progent staff do remote consulting only.

Our operations are set up for responding quickly and efficiently to client needs through information sharing and collaborative problem solving. Even though Progent's engineers work with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is centralized, client issues and solutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for convenient reference, current engineer schedules are published to facilitate team tasks and enable trouble escalation, and client approval is continually monitored. We strengthen the sense of connection via monthly team meetings and regular company-wide events.

The majority of our team is located throughout California, however we are building a rapidly growing group of consulting experts throughout the United States. Our virtual office environment does away with geographic boundaries that limit the productivity of conventional company models. We enhance the deal by providing a full benefit program to ensure the health and economic security of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and operations teams match the excellence that is Progent. These top-notch contributors to our success are helping us to target and land the scores of new customers we are now engaging each month. We lately celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective marketing organization.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a key for success with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of technical challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Customers rely on a consultant to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, advanced implementations, puzzling or entrenched problems, and tricky migrations are the foundation for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for network professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some great folks, both by building close customer contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused company from top to bottom. If you don’t have excellent communications skills or enjoy working with a diverse assortment of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor fit.

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

Enjoy Quality of Life Improvements and Technical Success with
Progent's Sophisticated Virtual Office Environment
