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

Progent wants to find fulltime, results-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco accredited network consultants with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security consultants with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security credentials; and advanced system design experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high uptime, business continuity, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for professionals to work on our team of help desk service technicians and off-site troubleshooting professionals. In addition, We are seeking talented administrators able to operate effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of talented and dedicated consultants, providing attentive customer services, and offering a competitive value-based pricing model, We have been able to increase our customer list dramatically while delivering professional support to numerous companies in Northern California and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common information database, and a group approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a loyal customer base.

For a network professional with technical support expertise, joining Progent or helping our clients will enhance your knowledge through cooperation with our group of mutually team-oriented, talented consultants. Progent's commitment to providing information technology expertise and technical help to small organizations will give you the chance to collaborate closely with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the success of dynamic companies.

Progent is hiring consultants who have recognized credentials related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco professionals, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security credentials. Naturally, we are aware of "paper experts". Nevertheless, simply because a certificate can not guarantee expertise is no excuse for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of these tests should present no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients expect credentials. Progent can broadcast your talents, but you need to have basic credentials for Progent to market. In case you stand adamantly opposed to the concept of credentials, Progent can understand and respect your position, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Network Consultants

Progent's business climate will make you a more capable consultant by enhancing your information technology skills and boosting the satisfaction of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the best professional talent for you to work with, offering an advanced system infrastructure, using proprietary application tools to deliver the highest quality of service, and by optimizing proven operational models for finding and keeping customers.

The decisive factor that differentiates us from most network support companies is the quality of our consulting team. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled the best expertise across a wide range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Macintosh, Linux, server virtualization, 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 experts.

To promote the productivity of our consultants, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful technology to perform the job efficiently. Progent will leverage technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure allows seamless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with other Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or lose income with regular drives to a conventional office building, and all driving you do for in-person customer work is based on your own time table, not ours. The most attractive part is that much of our consulting services can be done off-site, representing maximum productivity for billable hours. In fact, some of our team members do off-site consulting exclusively.

Progent's business structure is geared towards reacting quickly and efficiently to customer requirements via information exchange and cooperative problem solving. Even though our consultants work with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, client problems and resolutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for convenient retrieval, up-to-date consultant availability is published to streamline group projects and enable problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually monitored. We reinforce the feeling of connection through periodic team meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of our team is situated across Northern California, but we are attracting a rapidly expanding team of network professionals throughout the United States. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic boundaries that limit the productivity of traditional business structures. We complete the deal by providing a comprehensive benefit plan to promote the physical health and financial security of our team members and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, our marketing and operations teams live up to the high standards that defines Progent. These top-notch factors behind our growth are helping us to identify and land the scores of new customers we are currently engaging every month. We recently marked the providing of services to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing organization.

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 information technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of technical challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Customers choose consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or entrenched problems, and difficult migrations are the foundation for our services every day. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for network engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every day excited about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by building close customer relationships 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-oriented organization heart and soul. If you do not have excellent communications skills or like cooperating with a varied group of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good fit.

If all this seems good to you, we urge you to contact Progent about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.

Our Sophisticated Virtual Office Environment

Progent is convinced that a well designed and implemented network is a pivotal piece for enabling any firm's success, and Progent applies this belief in our corporate network environment.
