Staff Jobs for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Support Professionals

Progent wants to hire fulltime, results-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco certified system consultants with Cisco credentials; security consultants with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security certification; and advanced network design consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, service continuity, business continuity, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring employees who can join our team of helpdesk support specialists and off-site support professionals. Also, Progent is hiring experienced administrators who can operate productively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of talented and motivated professionals, providing attentive customer care, and offering a competitive value-based fee model, We have been able to increase our client list dramatically while providing consulting services to numerous companies in Northern California and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared knowledge database, and a team strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a loyal customer list.

Our commitment to delivering information technology consulting and computer help to small companies will offer you the opportunity to collaborate closely with key players and contribute significantly to the success of dynamic businesses.

Progent is hiring technical professionals who have recognized credentials in their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft MCSE credential.

For network security, you should have you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security certifications. Of course, we are familiar with "paper experts". However, the fact that a credential can not guarantee excellence is no reason for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of these tests should pose no great difficulty. The point is that if you are an expert, then customers expect credentials. Progent can broadcast your skills, but you must provide a baseline of credentials for us to work with. In case you are strongly opposed to the concept of credentials, we can understand and honor your opinion, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Progent makes good on this commitment by recruiting the best consulting talent for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, using custom software tools to enable the maximum level of service, and by optimizing proven operational models for attracting and keeping customers.

The decisive factor that differentiates Progent from other consulting firms is the quality of our consultants. Among the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with us, we have recruited top expertise covering a broad range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux, virtual servers, or other crucial application, we deploy experts who can help you to be successful on major projects by leveraging the aggregate experience of Progent's group of professionals.

To promote the success of our team, we invest significantly in making available the best technology to do the work efficiently. We will exploit technology to an extraordinary degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables effortless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent team members — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit income because of regular drives to a conventional office building, and any driving you do for on-site client jobs is based on your own time table, not Progent's. The best part is that much of Progent's support services can be done remotely, offering 100% productivity for billable hours. In practice, some of our team members do off-site consulting only.

Our operations are geared towards responding quickly and efficiently to customer needs via knowledge sharing and cooperative problem solving. Even though our engineers work with a high level of independence, dispatching is centralized, customer issues and resolutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for easy reference, current engineer availability is broadcast to facilitate group tasks and simplify problem escalation, and customer approval is always monitored. We strengthen the sense of connection through monthly team conferences and regular company-wide events.

The majority of our consultants are situated throughout Northern California, however Progent is attracting a rapidly expanding group of network experts throughout the United States. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with regional boundaries that restrict the productivity of conventional company structures. We complete the deal by providing a comprehensive employee care program to promote the physical health and financial welfare of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's sales and administration groups live up to the high standards that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind our success are helping us to target and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are currently acquiring each month. We lately celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong sales organization.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a key for success with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a continual series of network challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Clients choose a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or entrenched problems, and difficult upgrades are the basis for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every day excited about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will meet 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 add to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented company from top to bottom. If you don’t offer excellent communications skills or like working with a varied assortment of people, then we are probably a poor fit.

If all this sounds good to you, we invite you to contact us about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
