Career Work for Network Consultants, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Help Professionals

Progent wants to hire full-time, results-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with MCSE or MCP certification; Cisco certified network consultants who have Cisco CCIE certification; security consultants who have CISA or equivalent security certification; and advanced network architecture consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, workplace recovery, information protection, and VMware. Progent also is looking for employees to work on Progent's team of help desk service technicians and off-site troubleshooting experts. In addition, We are looking for talented managers who can operate productively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of skilled and dedicated consultants, delivering attentive customer services, and offering a strong results-based pricing structure, We have managed to expand our client base dramatically while delivering professional support to hundreds of companies in Northern California and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared information base, and a team approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a loyal customer base.

For a network professional with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or working for Progent's customers can expand your knowledge through cooperation with Progent's group of highly team-oriented, expert consultants. Our focus on delivering network consulting and computer help to small organizations will offer you the chance to collaborate closely with decision makers and add appreciably to the growth of dynamic businesses.

Progent is hiring consultants who can show verifiable certification related to their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your Microsoft MCSE certificate. For Cisco experts, have 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 leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, simply because a certificate can not guarantee expertise is no reason for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then most of those certifications should be no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you are a professional, then customers deserve to see credentials. We can market your skills, but you must provide a baseline of credentials for us to market. If you happen to be adamantly opposed to the idea of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are probably not a good fit.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining the Top Group of Computer Engineers

Progent's business climate will make you a better consulting professional by enhancing your information technology knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the best consulting experts for you to work with, providing an advanced network and communications architecture, using proprietary application tools to deliver the maximum quality of support, and by streamlining our operational structures for attracting and retaining customers.

The decisive factor that distinguishes Progent from other consulting firms is the excellence of our support professionals. Among the scores of consultants who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled the best talent covering a wide range of technologies. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Apple, Linux, virtual servers, or other key areas, we deploy experts who can enable you to be effective on major projects by combining the collective experience of Progent's team of experts.

To promote the productivity of Progent's team, we invest significantly in providing the best tools to perform the work properly. Progent will exploit information technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office environment allows seamless connectivity, cooperation, and information sharing with fellow Progent team members — all from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose revenue because of regular commutes to a physical office building, and all driving you do for in-person customer jobs is determined by your own schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that most of our consulting work can be done off-site, offering maximum efficiency for billable hours. In practice, some Progent team members do off-site support exclusively.

Our business structure is geared towards responding rapidly and efficiently to customer requirements via knowledge exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Even though Progent's engineers work with a high level of freedom, dispatching is unified, customer problems and solutions are carefully tracked, documented, and organized for convenient retrieval, up-to-date consultant availability is published to facilitate team projects and simplify problem escalation, and client approval is always evaluated. We strengthen the sense of cooperation through monthly team meetings and regular corporate events.

The majority of Progent's team is located across California, but we are attracting a quickly growing group of consulting experts throughout America. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with regional obstacles that limit the efficiency of conventional company models. We complete the deal by offering a comprehensive employee care program to ensure the physical health and financial security of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, our sales and operations groups live up to the high standards that characterizes Progent. These top-notch contributors to our growth are enabling us to target and sign up the scores of new customers we are currently engaging every month. We lately celebrated 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 a strong sales organization.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for success with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of network challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Clients rely on consulting firms to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or entrenched problems, and tricky migrations are the basis for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for computer professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will work with some great people, both by building strong customer relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization from top to bottom. If you do not offer strong communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse group of personalities, then Progent is probably not a good fit.

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