Staff Work for Network Engineers, Computer Service Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Help Technicians

Progent wants to hire staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco accredited system consultants who have Cisco CCIE credentials; security consultants who have CISA or equivalent security certification; and advanced system architecture experts with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, service continuity, disaster recovery, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also seeks employees who can join Progent's staff of desktop service technicians and remote troubleshooting experts. In addition, Progent is hiring experienced administrators who can perform productively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of skilled and motivated consultants, delivering attentive client care, and offering a competitive value-based pricing structure, Progent has been able to increase our customer base rapidly while delivering professional support to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common information base, and a group approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a skilled staff and a satisfied client list.

If you are a network professional with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or working for our customers can expand your knowledge via interaction with Progent's staff of mutually supportive, talented consultants. Our focus on providing network consulting and technical support to small organizations will give you the chance to collaborate closely with key players and add appreciably to the success of dynamic businesses.

We are hiring consultants that can show verifiable certification related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco experts, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other leading security certifications. Of course, Progent is aware of "paper experts". Nevertheless, the fact that a credential can not guarantee expertise is no reason for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then most of those certifications should present no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you are a professional, then customers deserve to see credentials. We will broadcast your skills, but you must provide standard certifications for Progent to work with. In case you happen to be adamantly against the idea of certifications, Progent can understand and honor your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the top consulting talent for you to work with, providing an advanced system architecture, running custom application utilities to deliver the highest level of support, and by streamlining proven operational structures for attracting and retaining clients.

The main factor that differentiates Progent from typical consulting companies is the excellence of our support professionals. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have joined us, we have assembled top talent covering a wide array of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux, server virtualization, or other crucial technologies, we engage experts who can help you to be successful on larger jobs by combining the aggregate experience of our group of professionals.

To promote the success of our team, we invest significantly in making available the best tools to do the work efficiently. Progent will leverage technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables seamless communications, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with other Progent team members — all from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit income because of daily drives to a physical office, and all driving you do for on-site client work is based on your own time table, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that most of our support services can be performed off-site, offering maximum productivity for income-producing hours. In fact, some Progent staff do remote support only.

Our business structure is geared towards responding quickly and efficiently to client needs via information exchange and collaborative problem solving. Although our consultants work with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is centralized, customer problems and resolutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for easy reference, current engineer schedules are broadcast to facilitate team tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is always evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of connection via periodic workgroup conferences and quarterly corporate events.

Most of our team is located across Northern California, but we are building a quickly expanding team of consulting professionals throughout the U.S. Our virtual office environment eliminates geographic boundaries that restrict the productivity of traditional company structures. We complete the deal by offering a comprehensive benefit program to promote the health and financial welfare of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, our sales and administration teams live up to the high standards that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to our growth are enabling us to target and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are now engaging every month. Progent lately marked the providing of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales operation.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for success with us. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a continual series of technical challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Customers rely on consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or entrenched problems, and tricky upgrades are the basis for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for network professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will work with some great folks, both by building close client relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused company heart and soul. If you do not have excellent communications skills or enjoy working with a varied group of people, then Progent is probably not a good fit.

If this seems good to you, we urge you to contact Progent about our vision of the future of information technology consulting.
