Staff Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to find full-time, results-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco accredited network consultants who have CCIE certification; security professionals with CISM or comparable security certification; and advanced system architecture experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, service continuity, disaster recovery, information preservation, and VMware. Progent also seeks professionals who can join Progent's staff of help desk service specialists and remote troubleshooting experts. In addition, We are hiring experienced administrators able to perform effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of skilled and motivated consultants, delivering world-class client care, and offering a strong results-based fee structure, We have been able to expand our customer list dramatically while providing consulting support to hundreds of companies in Northern California and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared information base, and a team strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a talented staff and a satisfied customer base.

Our focus on delivering information technology expertise and technical help to small organizations will offer you the chance to work intimately with key players and add appreciably to the success of exciting companies.

We are hiring technical professionals who have verifiable certification in their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. For Cisco consultants, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security credentials.

If you have mastered your field, then the majority of those tests should pose no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you call yourself an expert, then customers deserve to see credentials. Progent can market your skills, but you should provide standard certifications for Progent to market. If you stand strongly against the idea of certifications, we can understand and honor your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

Enhance Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Team of Network Consultants

Progent's productive atmosphere will allow you to become a better consulting professional by enhancing your technical knowledge and boosting the satisfaction of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the top consulting experts for you to work with, providing an advanced network and communications infrastructure, using proprietary application utilities to enable the highest quality of service, and by streamlining proven business models for finding and keeping customers.

The decisive factor that separates us from most network support firms is the quality of our service staff. Among the scores of consultants who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled top expertise across a broad array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other vital areas, we engage experts who can help you to be successful on major jobs by combining the collective skills of Progent's team of experts.

To ensure the success of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful tools to perform the job efficiently. We will exploit technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office environment enables seamless communications, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with other Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit revenue because of regular drives to a conventional office building, and all travel you do for on-site client jobs is determined by your own schedule, not Progent's. The best benefit is that much of our support services can be performed off-site, offering 100% productivity for billable time. In practice, some of our staff do off-site support only.

Progent's business structure is geared towards responding quickly and efficiently to client requirements via information sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Even though Progent's consultants operate with a great deal of independence, dispatching is centralized, client problems and resolutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and archived for easy reference, current engineer schedules are broadcast to facilitate group tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually evaluated. We reinforce the sense of cooperation via periodic workgroup conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of our consultants are situated across California, but Progent is attracting a quickly growing group of consulting experts throughout the United States. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with regional obstacles that limit the efficiency of traditional company models. We complete the deal by offering a comprehensive benefit program to promote the health and economic welfare of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, our sales and administration groups live up to the excellence that is Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s success are enabling us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are now acquiring each month. Progent lately celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong marketing organization.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a key for growth with us. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a steady series of network challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Clients rely on consulting firms to do the toughest jobs. Creative projects, advanced deployments, puzzling or chronic problems, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for our services daily. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every morning excited about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by building close client relationships and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented organization heart and soul. If you do not have strong communications skills or like working with a varied assortment of personalities, then we are probably not a good match.

If all this seems right for you, we invite you to talk to us about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.

Get Quality of Life Benefits and Technical Prowess with
Progent's Sophisticated Virtual Office Environment
