More Information Concerning Work with Us

Career Work for Network Engineers, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to find fulltime, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco certified system consultants with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security consultants with CISA or comparable security credentials; and advanced system architecture experts with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, service continuity, business continuity, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring employees who can work on Progent's staff of desktop support technicians and remote support professionals. Also, Progent is looking for experienced managers who can operate productively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of talented and motivated consultants, providing world-class customer services, and following a strong results-focused pricing structure, Progent has managed to increase our customer list rapidly while providing consulting support to numerous businesses in Northern California and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared information database, and a team strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied customer base.

For an information technology consultant with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or helping Progent's clients will enhance your skills via cooperation with Progent's group of mutually supportive, expert engineers. Progent's focus on providing network expertise and computer help to small organizations will give you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add significantly to the success of exciting businesses.

We are hiring consultants that have recognized certification related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco consultants, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Still, the fact that a credential does not ensure expertise is no reason for not having one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of these certifications should pose no challenge. The point is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients deserve to see certifications. Progent will market your talents, but you should provide standard credentials for us to work with. If you happen to be strongly opposed to the concept of certifications, we can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are probably not a good candidate.

Improve Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Working with the Top Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a better consulting professional by improving your information technology skills and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the best professional talent for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, using specialized software utilities to enable the maximum quality of support, and by optimizing proven business models for attracting and retaining clients.

The decisive factor that differentiates us from most consulting firms is the quality of our consulting team. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined us, we have assembled top expertise covering a broad array of technologies. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Apple, Linux, virtual servers, or other vital technologies, we engage professionals who can help you to be successful on major jobs by combining the collective experience of our group of experts.

To promote the productivity of our consultants, we invest significantly in providing the best technology to do the job efficiently. Progent will exploit technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure allows seamless communications, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent team members — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit revenue with daily drives to a physical office, and any travel you do for in-person client work is determined by your schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that most of Progent's support services can be performed off-site, offering maximum productivity for income-producing hours. In practice, some Progent staff do remote support exclusively.

Progent's operations are set up for responding quickly and efficiently to client requirements through knowledge sharing and collaborative problem resolution. 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 engineer availability is published to streamline team tasks and simplify problem escalation, and customer approval is continually monitored. We strengthen the feeling of connection through monthly team meetings and regular company-wide events.

Most of Progent's consultants are situated across California, however we are building a rapidly expanding group of consulting experts from across the U.S. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with regional boundaries that limit the efficiency of conventional business structures. We enhance the package by offering a comprehensive benefit plan to ensure the physical health and economic security of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consultants, our marketing and operations groups match the high standards that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s growth are helping us to identify and land the 50-60 new customers we are now engaging each month. Progent recently marked the providing of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong sales organization.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of network challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Customers rely on consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, advanced implementations, puzzling or chronic problems, and difficult migrations are the basis for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for computer professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every day enthusiastic about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by establishing strong customer contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused company from top to bottom. If you do not have excellent communications skills or like working with a diverse group of people, then we are probably not a good fit.

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

Enjoy Lifestyle Improvements and Technical Success with
Progent's Sophisticated Virtual Office Environment
