Additional Facts About Jobs with Us

Fulltime Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire full-time, solutions-driven Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco certified system engineers who have Cisco credentials; security professionals who have CISSP or comparable security credentials; and high-end system architecture experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, high availability, business continuity, information protection, and VMware. Progent also seeks professionals who can join Progent's staff of helpdesk support specialists and remote support professionals. Also, We are hiring experienced administrators able to operate effectively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of skilled and dedicated professionals, providing world-class customer services, and following a strong results-focused pricing model, We have managed to expand our client base rapidly while delivering consulting services to numerous companies in Northern California and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared knowledge database, and a team strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a loyal customer list.

If you are a network professional with troubleshooting experience, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's customers can expand your knowledge through interaction with our group of mutually team-oriented, expert consultants. Progent's focus on delivering network consulting and technical support to small companies will give you the opportunity to collaborate closely with decision makers and add appreciably to the growth of dynamic businesses.

Progent is hiring technical professionals that can show verifiable certification related to their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security certifications. Naturally, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Still, simply because a certificate does not ensure excellence is no reason for not owning one. If you know your field, then the majority of those certifications should present no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients expect credentials. We can broadcast your skills, but you need to have a baseline of credentials for us to market. In case you stand strongly against the concept of credentials, Progent can understand and respect your opinion, but you are probably not a good fit.

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

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a better professional by improving your information technology skills and boosting the satisfaction of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the top professional experts for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications infrastructure, using proprietary application tools to deliver the highest quality of service, and by streamlining proven operational structures for attracting and keeping customers.

The main factor that differentiates Progent from other network support companies is the high caliber of our consulting team. Among the scores of consultants who have joined Progent, we have recruited the best talent across a wide range of technologies. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Apple, Linux, VMware, or other crucial application, we deploy experts who can help you to be successful on larger projects by leveraging the collective experience of our group of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful technology to perform the job efficiently. Progent will leverage technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables seamless communications, cooperation, and information sharing with fellow Progent team members — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit income with regular drives to a physical office, and all driving you do for in-person client jobs is based on your time table, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that much of Progent's consulting services can be done remotely, offering 100% efficiency for income-producing hours. In fact, some Progent team members do remote consulting only.

Progent's operations are set up for responding quickly and efficiently to customer needs via knowledge sharing and cooperative problem solving. Even though our engineers work with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is centralized, client issues and resolutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and organized for convenient reference, current consultant schedules are broadcast to facilitate group tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is continually monitored. We strengthen the feeling of connection via periodic workgroup conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of our consultants are situated throughout California, however we are building a quickly expanding team of network professionals from across the U.S. Our virtual office environment eliminates regional boundaries that restrict the productivity of traditional business models. We enhance the deal by offering a comprehensive benefit plan to promote the health and economic security of our employees and their families.

Just as we have world-class consultants, our marketing and operations teams live up to the high standards that is Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s growth are helping us to target and land the scores of new clients we are currently acquiring each month. Progent lately celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective sales organization.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a key for success with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a steady series of technical challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Customers choose consultants to do the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or chronic issues, and tricky upgrades are the basis for what we do every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every morning excited about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some great people, both by building close client contacts and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented organization heart and soul. If you don’t have strong people skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied group of people, then we are in all likelihood not a good fit.

If this sounds right for you, we urge you to contact Progent about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
