Career Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent wants to hire fulltime, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited network consultants who have Cisco CCIE credentials; security consultants who have CISM or comparable security certification; and advanced system design experts with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, high uptime, disaster recovery, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for professionals who can work on Progent's staff of desktop service technicians and remote support experts. Also, We are looking for talented administrators who can operate productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of talented and motivated consultants, providing world-class customer services, and following a competitive results-based pricing structure, Progent has managed to expand our client list rapidly while delivering consulting support to numerous companies in Northern California and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared knowledge base, and a team strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a satisfied client list.

For a network consultant with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's clients can expand your knowledge via interaction with Progent's group of mutually team-oriented, expert engineers. Progent's focus on providing information technology expertise and technical help to small companies will give you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the success of dynamic businesses.

We are looking for consultants who have recognized certification in their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or CCNP credential. For security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security certifications. Of course, we are familiar with "paper experts". Nevertheless, the fact that a credential can not guarantee expertise is no reason for not owning one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of these certifications should present no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you call yourself an expert, then customers deserve to see certifications. Progent can promote your talents, but you must provide basic certifications for Progent to market. If you stand adamantly opposed to the concept of credentials, we can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are probably not a good fit.

Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the top consulting talent for you to operate with, offering an advanced network and communications infrastructure, running custom software tools to deliver the maximum quality of service, and by streamlining our operational structures for finding and keeping customers.

The decisive factor that distinguishes us from other network support firms is the high quality of our consulting team.

Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other crucial technologies, we deploy professionals who can help you to be effective on larger projects by leveraging the collective experience of Progent's group of professionals.

To promote the productivity of our consultants, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful tools to perform the job efficiently. Progent will leverage information technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables seamless communications, cooperation, and information sharing with other Progent team members — all from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit income with daily drives to a conventional office, and any driving you do for on-site customer work is based on your time table, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that most of Progent's consulting services can be done off-site, representing maximum productivity for income-producing time. In practice, some of our staff do off-site support exclusively.

Our business structure is set up for responding rapidly and efficiently to customer requirements via knowledge exchange and collaborative problem solving. Even though Progent's engineers operate with a great deal of independence, dispatching is centralized, customer issues and solutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and organized for convenient retrieval, current consultant schedules are published to facilitate team tasks and enable trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is always monitored. We reinforce the feeling of connection via periodic workgroup meetings and regular corporate events.

The majority of Progent's team is located throughout California, however we are attracting a quickly growing group of network experts from across the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic boundaries that limit the efficiency of conventional business structures. We enhance the package by offering a full benefit plan to ensure the physical health and financial security of our employees and their relations.

These top-notch contributors to Progent’s success are enabling us to target and land the scores of new clients we are now engaging each month. We recently marked the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective sales operation.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with us. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a continual series of technical challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Clients choose consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, advanced deployments, puzzling or entrenched problems, and tricky migrations are the basis for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for computer professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will work with some great folks, both by establishing strong client contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented organization heart and soul. If you don’t offer excellent people skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse group of people, then we are probably a poor fit.

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