Staff Jobs for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Professionals

Progent wants to find staff-level, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco accredited system consultants who have Cisco credentials; security consultants with CISSP or comparable security credentials; and advanced network design consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, fault tolerance, workplace recovery, data preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring professionals who can work on our team of desktop support technicians and off-site troubleshooting experts. In addition, We are seeking experienced managers who can operate productively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of skilled and motivated professionals, delivering world-class customer care, and offering a strong value-based fee model, We have been able to increase our customer list rapidly while delivering consulting support to numerous businesses in Northern California and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common knowledge database, and a group approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a satisfied customer list.

If you are an information technology consultant with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or helping Progent's clients can expand your skills through interaction with our staff of highly team-oriented, talented consultants. Progent's focus on delivering network consulting and technical help to small organizations will give you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with key players and add appreciably to the growth of dynamic companies.

Progent is looking for consultants who have recognized certification related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco experts, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security certifications. Naturally, we are familiar with "paper experts". However, simply because a certificate can not guarantee excellence is no justification for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then most of these certifications should pose no challenge. The point is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients deserve to see certifications. We can promote your skills, but you must have a baseline of certifications for us to work with. In case you are adamantly against the idea of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Enhance Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Computer Engineers

Progent's company culture will make you a more capable professional by improving your technical knowledge and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the top consulting talent for you to work with, offering an advanced system infrastructure, using custom application utilities to deliver the maximum level of support, and by streamlining proven business models for attracting and retaining customers.

The decisive factor that differentiates us from ordinary consulting firms is the high quality of our consulting team. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have joined us, we have assembled top talent across a wide range of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Apple, Linux, VMware, or other key technologies, we deploy professionals who can help you to be successful on larger projects by leveraging the aggregate skills of Progent's team of professionals.

To promote the success of Progent's consultants, we invest significantly in providing 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 connectivity, collaboration, and information sharing with fellow Progent consultants — all from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit income because of regular commutes to a conventional office, and any driving you do for on-site client work is based on your own schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that most of Progent's support work can be done remotely, offering maximum productivity for billable hours. In practice, some of our team members do off-site consulting only.

Our business structure is set up for reacting quickly and efficiently to client requirements through information exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Even though Progent's consultants work with a great deal of independence, dispatching is centralized, client issues and resolutions are carefully tracked, recorded, and organized for easy retrieval, up-to-date engineer schedules are published to streamline team projects and enable trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is continually monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation through monthly workgroup meetings and regular company-wide events.

The majority of our team is located throughout Northern California, but we are attracting a quickly growing team of consulting professionals from across America. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic obstacles that restrict the productivity of conventional company models. We complete the deal by providing a full benefit plan to promote the physical health and financial security of our team members and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, Progent's sales and operations groups live up to the excellence that characterizes Progent. These top-notch contributors to our success are helping us to target and land the scores of new customers we are currently acquiring every month. Progent recently celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective sales operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a key for growth with us. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of technical challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Clients rely on consultants to perform the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, advanced deployments, puzzling or entrenched issues, and tricky migrations are the basis for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for computer engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every day excited about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will work with some great people, both by establishing close client relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused company heart and soul. If you don’t offer excellent communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied group of people, then we are probably a poor match.

If this sounds right for you, we invite you to talk to Progent about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.

Enjoy Quality of Life Benefits and Technical Success with
Progent's Sophisticated Virtual Office Environment

Progent is convinced that a carefully architected and executed information system is a crucial piece for enabling a company's success, and we apply this belief in our own system environment. We have created a zero-downtime virtual office network that allows our in-house engineers and authorized contractors to offer rapid and effective service, collaborate easily on complex jobs, and experience career and private maturity from being part of an exciting company culture of self motivation and independence.
