Fulltime Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire full-time, results-driven Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco accredited network consultants who have Cisco credentials; security professionals with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security credentials; and advanced network architecture consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, service continuity, business continuity, information protection, and VMware. Progent also is looking for professionals who can work on our team of desktop service technicians and remote support experts. In addition, Progent is looking for experienced administrators able to perform productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of skilled and dedicated professionals, delivering world-class customer care, and offering a competitive results-focused fee model, Progent has been able to expand our client list dramatically while providing professional services to hundreds of companies in Northern California and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared knowledge base, and a team approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a loyal client list.

For a network professional with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or working for Progent's customers will enhance your knowledge through interaction with Progent's staff of highly supportive, expert consultants. Progent's focus on providing network consulting and computer support to small organizations will give you the chance to work intimately with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the growth of dynamic companies.

Progent is hiring technical professionals who have recognized certification related to their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco experts, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP credential. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security certifications. Naturally, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” Still, the fact that a certificate does not guarantee expertise is no justification for not having one. If you know your stuff, then most of these tests should pose no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you are a professional, then customers expect credentials. We will broadcast your talents, but you must have standard credentials for Progent to market. In case you stand adamantly opposed to the idea of certifications, we can understand and honor your opinion, but you are probably not a good candidate.

Improve Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Working with a Great Group of Computer Engineers

Progent's work environment will make you a better consultant by enhancing your information technology skills and boosting the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the top professional experts for you to work with, providing an advanced network and communications architecture, running proprietary application utilities to deliver the maximum level of service, and by streamlining proven business structures for finding and maintaining clients.

The most important factor that distinguishes Progent from typical consulting firms is the high caliber of our service staff. Out of the scores of consultants who have joined Progent, we have recruited the best talent covering a broad range of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other crucial technologies, we deploy professionals who can help you to be effective on larger projects by leveraging the aggregate skills of Progent's group of experts.

To promote the productivity of Progent's team, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful tools to do the work properly. Progent will exploit technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows seamless communications, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with other Progent team members — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit income because of daily drives to a physical office building, and all driving you do for in-person client work is determined by your own schedule, not ours. The best benefit is that much of our support services can be performed remotely, offering 100% productivity for billable hours. In fact, some of our staff do remote consulting only.

Progent's business structure is geared towards reacting rapidly and effectively to client requirements via information sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Although our consultants operate with a high level of independence, resource allocation is centralized, client issues and solutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and organized for easy reference, current engineer schedules are broadcast to streamline team projects and enable problem escalation, and client approval is always evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of connection via periodic workgroup conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of our consultants are situated throughout California, however Progent is attracting a rapidly expanding team of network professionals from across America. Progent's virtual office environment does away with regional obstacles that limit the productivity of conventional business models. We complete the package by providing a comprehensive employee care program to ensure the physical health and financial security of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, Progent's marketing and operations teams live up to the excellence that characterizes Progent. These high-performance factors behind our success are enabling us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are now acquiring every month. We lately celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales organization.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a key for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of technical challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Clients choose consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, advanced implementations, puzzling or chronic issues, and tricky migrations are the basis for our services every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for network engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some great folks, both by establishing strong customer contacts and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization through and through. If you don’t have strong people skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied assortment of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good fit.

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