Fulltime Work for Network Engineers, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire full-time, results-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco accredited network engineers who have Cisco certification; security professionals who have CISSP or equivalent security credentials; and high-end system architecture consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, fault tolerance, disaster recovery, information protection, and VMware. Progent also seeks employees to work on Progent's team of help desk service technicians and off-site support experts. In addition, Progent is looking for experienced administrators who can operate productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of talented and dedicated consultants, delivering attentive client care, and following a strong value-focused fee model, We have been able to expand our customer base dramatically while delivering consulting support to numerous businesses in Northern California and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared information database, and a team approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a talented staff and a satisfied client list.

For an information technology consultant with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's customers will enhance your skills through cooperation with Progent's group of highly supportive, expert consultants. Progent's focus on providing information technology consulting and technical support to small organizations will offer you the opportunity to work intimately with key players and contribute significantly to the growth of dynamic companies.

Progent is hiring consultants that can show verifiable credentials related to their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. For Cisco professionals, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security credentials. Of course, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, simply because a certificate can not ensure excellence is no excuse for not having one. If you know your field, then the majority of these tests should present no challenge. The bottom line is that if you are an expert, then customers expect certifications. Progent can broadcast your talents, but you should have standard credentials for us to market. If you happen to be adamantly against the idea of certifications, we can understand and honor your opinion, but you are probably not a good fit.

Improve Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Computer Consultants

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a more capable consultant by improving your technical skills and increasing the satisfaction of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the best professional experts for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications infrastructure, running specialized application tools to deliver the highest level of service, and by streamlining proven business models for finding and keeping customers.

The most important factor that separates us from other network support firms is the high caliber of our consulting team. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined Progent, we have recruited top talent across a wide range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other vital application, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be successful on major jobs by leveraging the collective skills of Progent's group of professionals.

To promote the success of Progent's team, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful technology to do the job efficiently. Progent will leverage technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows seamless connectivity, collaboration, and information exchange with other Progent team members — entirely from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or lose revenue with regular drives to a conventional office, and all travel you do for in-person customer jobs is based on your schedule, not Progent's. The best part is that most of our support work can be performed remotely, offering maximum efficiency for income-producing time. In fact, some of our staff do remote support exclusively.

Progent's business structure is geared towards reacting quickly and effectively to client needs via knowledge sharing and cooperative problem solving. Even though Progent's engineers work with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, customer problems and resolutions are carefully tracked, documented, and archived for convenient retrieval, up-to-date consultant availability is broadcast to facilitate group projects and simplify trouble escalation, and client approval is always evaluated. We strengthen the sense of connection via periodic team meetings and regular corporate events.

Most of Progent's team is situated throughout California, but we are building a quickly growing team of consulting experts from across America. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic boundaries that limit the efficiency of traditional business models. We enhance the package by offering a comprehensive benefit plan to ensure the health and financial welfare of our employees and their families.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, our marketing and administration teams match the excellence that characterizes Progent. These top-notch factors behind our growth are enabling us to target and land the 50-60 new clients we are now acquiring each month. We lately marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective sales operation.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a key for success with us. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of network challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Clients rely on a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Creative projects, leading-edge deployments, vexing or chronic issues, and tricky upgrades are the basis for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for network professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every day excited about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will work with some great folks, both by building strong client relationships and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company through and through. If you do not have excellent people skills or enjoy working with a diverse group of people, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor fit.

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