Career Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Professionals

Progent wants to find full-time, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco certified network consultants who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP credentials; security professionals who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security certification; and advanced system design consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, high uptime, workplace recovery, data preservation, and VMware. Progent also is hiring professionals who can work on Progent's team of desktop service specialists and remote support professionals. In addition, Progent is hiring experienced administrators able to perform productively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of skilled and motivated consultants, providing attentive customer services, and offering a competitive results-based fee model, We have been able to increase our client base dramatically while providing consulting services to numerous businesses in Northern California and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a common information database, and a group strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a loyal client list.

If you are an information technology consultant with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's customers will enhance your knowledge via cooperation with our group of mutually supportive, talented consultants. Our focus on providing network expertise and technical support to small companies will offer you the opportunity to work closely with key players and contribute appreciably to the success of exciting companies.

Progent is hiring technical professionals that have verifiable certification in their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your MCSE certificate. For Cisco professionals, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security certifications. Naturally, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, simply because a certificate can not guarantee excellence is no justification for not earning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then the majority of those tests should be no great difficulty. The point is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients expect credentials. Progent can market your talents, but you need to provide a baseline of certifications for Progent to work with. In case you are strongly against the idea of credentials, we can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

Improve Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Network Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a more capable consulting professional by enhancing your information technology skills and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the top consulting experts for you to work with, providing an advanced network and communications architecture, using specialized application tools to enable the maximum level of support, and by optimizing proven operational structures for finding and retaining customers.

The decisive factor that separates us from ordinary network support companies is the quality of our service staff. Among the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited top talent across a wide array of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other vital areas, we engage professionals who can enable you to be effective on larger projects by combining the aggregate experience of our team of professionals.

To promote the success of our consultants, we invest significantly in providing the best tools to do the job properly. We will leverage information technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables seamless communications, cooperation, and information sharing with other Progent team members — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or lose income with regular commutes to a conventional office building, and any driving you do for on-site customer work is determined by your own schedule, not ours. The most attractive part is that much of our support work can be performed remotely, offering maximum productivity for income-producing time. In fact, some of our staff do remote support only.

Our operations are geared towards responding rapidly and efficiently to customer requirements through knowledge sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Even though Progent's consultants work with a great deal of freedom, dispatching is centralized, client issues and resolutions are carefully monitored, documented, and archived for easy retrieval, up-to-date consultant schedules are broadcast to streamline group projects and enable problem escalation, and client satisfaction is always monitored. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation through periodic team conferences and quarterly corporate events.

Most of our consultants are located across California, however Progent is building a quickly expanding group of consulting professionals from across the U.S. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with regional boundaries that restrict the efficiency of conventional company models. We enhance the package by providing a comprehensive benefit program to promote the physical health and economic security of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, our sales and administration groups live up to the excellence that is Progent. These top-notch factors behind our success are enabling us to target and land the scores of new clients we are currently acquiring each month. Progent lately marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong marketing organization.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a steady series of technical challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Clients rely on consulting firms to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, leading-edge implementations, vexing or chronic problems, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too common for network professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every day excited about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some great folks, both by establishing strong client contacts and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company through and through. If you do not have excellent communications skills or like working with a varied assortment of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good fit.

If this sounds right for you, we urge you to contact us about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.
