Career Work for Network Consultants, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Professionals

Progent wants to find staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco accredited network engineers with CCIE credentials; security consultants who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security credentials; and high-end network design consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, service continuity, business continuity, information preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring professionals to work on our team of desktop support specialists and off-site support experts. Also, We are looking for experienced administrators able to operate productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of skilled and motivated professionals, providing world-class customer services, and following a competitive results-based pricing model, We have been able to expand our client base rapidly while delivering consulting services to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a common knowledge database, and a team strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a loyal client base.

If you are an information technology professional with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or working for our customers can enhance your knowledge via interaction with our group of highly team-oriented, talented consultants. Our focus on providing information technology consulting and computer support to small companies will give you the chance to work intimately with decision makers and contribute significantly to the growth of exciting businesses.

We are looking for consultants who have recognized credentials related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your MCSE credential. For Cisco consultants, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or one of the other top security credentials. Naturally, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Notwithstanding, simply because a credential can not ensure expertise is no justification for not having one. If you know your field, then most of these certifications should present no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients deserve to see certifications. Progent will promote your talents, but you need to provide standard credentials for us to work with. If you are strongly against the idea of certifications, Progent can understand and honor your opinion, but you are probably not a good fit.

Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the top consulting talent for you to work with, providing an advanced system architecture, using proprietary application utilities to deliver the highest level of service, and by streamlining our operational structures for finding and maintaining customers.

We will exploit technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables seamless communications, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with other Progent team members — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose revenue because of regular drives to a physical office, and all driving you do for on-site client work is based on your schedule, not Progent's. The best part is that most of Progent's consulting work can be done remotely, representing maximum efficiency for billable hours. In fact, some of our staff do remote consulting exclusively.

Our operations are set up for reacting rapidly and effectively to client needs via information exchange and collaborative problem solving. Even though Progent's engineers work with a high level of freedom, dispatching is centralized, client problems and solutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for convenient retrieval, current engineer availability is published to facilitate team tasks and enable problem escalation, and client satisfaction is always evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of connection through periodic workgroup conferences and regular company-wide events.

Most of Progent's consultants are situated throughout Northern California, but we are building a quickly expanding group of network experts throughout the United States. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with regional obstacles that restrict the productivity of traditional business models. We enhance the package by providing a full employee care plan to ensure the health and economic security of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consultants, our sales and operations teams match the high standards that characterizes Progent. These high-performance contributors to our success are enabling us to target and sign up the scores of new clients we are currently acquiring each month. Progent recently celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing operation.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a key for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a continual series of network challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Customers rely on consulting firms to do the toughest jobs. Creative projects, advanced deployments, vexing or entrenched problems, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will work with some great people, both by establishing strong client contacts and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented company from top to bottom. If you don’t have excellent communications skills or like working with a diverse assortment of personalities, then Progent is probably a poor match.

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