Details About Work with Us

Fulltime Work for Network Engineers, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent wants to find fulltime, solutions-driven Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited network engineers with Cisco certification; security professionals with CISSP or equivalent security certification; and high-end system architecture experts with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, high availability, disaster recovery, information protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for professionals who can work on Progent's team of helpdesk service technicians and remote support professionals. In addition, We are looking for experienced administrators who can perform productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of skilled and motivated consultants, delivering world-class customer care, and following a competitive results-based fee model, We have managed to expand our customer base dramatically while providing professional services to numerous companies in Northern California and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared knowledge base, and a team strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a loyal customer base.

If you are a network consultant with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or working for Progent's customers can expand your skills via interaction with Progent's staff of mutually supportive, talented engineers. Progent's commitment to providing information technology consulting and technical help to small companies will offer you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with key players and add significantly to the success of dynamic companies.

We are looking for consultants who can show verifiable credentials related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. In the case of Cisco experts, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP credential. For network security, you should have you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security certifications. Of course, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Still, the fact that a credential can not ensure expertise is no excuse for not having one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of these certifications should pose no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you are a professional, then clients expect credentials. We will broadcast your talents, but you need to have standard credentials for Progent to market. In case you are strongly opposed to the concept of certifications, we can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Enhance Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Working with a Great Group of Computer Consultants

Progent's business climate will make you a more capable professional by improving your technical skills and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by recruiting the best professional experts for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, using proprietary application tools to enable the highest quality of support, and by optimizing proven business models for attracting and keeping customers.

The most important factor that distinguishes us from ordinary network support firms is the quality of our support professionals. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have joined Progent, we have assembled top expertise across a wide range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other key application, we engage experts who can help you to be effective on major jobs by leveraging the collective experience of Progent's group of experts.

To promote the productivity of our team, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful tools to do the job properly. Progent will exploit technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables seamless connectivity, collaboration, and information exchange with other Progent consultants — all from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit income because of daily commutes to a physical office building, and all driving you do for in-person customer work is based on your schedule, not Progent's. The best part is that much of Progent's consulting work can be done remotely, offering 100% productivity for income-producing hours. In practice, some Progent team members do off-site consulting exclusively.

Progent's operations are geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to client needs via information sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Even though our engineers operate with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is unified, client issues and solutions are carefully tracked, documented, and organized for convenient reference, current consultant availability is broadcast to facilitate team tasks and simplify problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is always evaluated. We reinforce the sense of cooperation through periodic team meetings and quarterly corporate events.

Most of our team is located throughout Northern California, but Progent is attracting a rapidly growing team of consulting experts throughout the U.S. Our virtual office environment does away with regional obstacles that limit the productivity of conventional business models. We complete the package by offering a full employee care plan to ensure the physical health and economic welfare of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consultants, Progent's marketing and operations groups live up to the high standards that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s success are enabling us to target and land the scores of new customers we are now engaging every month. Progent recently marked the providing of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing organization.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a key for success with us. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a steady series of network challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Clients choose a consultant to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, advanced implementations, vexing or chronic issues, and difficult migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for network professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some great folks, both by establishing close client relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company through and through. If you don’t have excellent people skills or like cooperating with a varied assortment of people, then Progent is probably a poor match.

If all this sounds good to you, we invite you to contact Progent about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.

Enjoy Lifestyle Improvements and Technical Prowess with
Our Advanced Virtual Office Infrastructure
