More Information Concerning Work with Us

Fulltime Work for Network Engineers, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to find staff-level, results-driven Microsoft certified engineers with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco certified system engineers with Cisco CCIE credentials; security professionals who have CISSP or equivalent security credentials; and high-end system architecture experts with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, fault tolerance, business continuity, information protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for employees who can join Progent's staff of helpdesk support technicians and remote support experts. In addition, Progent is seeking talented administrators who can perform productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of skilled and dedicated professionals, providing world-class client services, and following a strong results-based fee model, Progent has been able to increase our customer base dramatically while delivering professional services to hundreds of companies in Northern California and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common information database, and a team strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a loyal client list.

For an information technology consultant with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or helping our clients can enhance your knowledge via cooperation with our staff of mutually team-oriented, talented engineers. Our commitment to delivering information technology consulting and technical support to small and midsize companies will give you the opportunity to collaborate closely with decision makers and add appreciably to the success of exciting companies.

Progent is looking for consultants who have recognized credentials related to their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. In the case of Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security credentials. Of course, we are familiar with "paper experts". Still, simply because a certificate can not guarantee excellence is no excuse for not owning one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of those tests should present no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers expect credentials. We will broadcast your skills, but you need to provide standard credentials for us to market. If you stand adamantly opposed to the idea of certifications, Progent can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

You don’t throw away time or lose income because of regular drives to a conventional office building, and any driving you do for in-person customer jobs is determined by your own time table, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that much of our support services can be performed remotely, offering 100% productivity for income-producing hours. In practice, some Progent team members do remote consulting only.

Our operations are set up for reacting rapidly and efficiently to customer requirements via information exchange and collaborative problem solving. Even though our engineers work with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, customer issues and solutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and organized for easy reference, current consultant schedules are published to streamline team tasks and enable problem escalation, and customer approval is always evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation through periodic team conferences and regular corporate events.

Most of Progent's consultants are situated across Northern California, however Progent is building a quickly expanding team of network professionals from across America.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in information technology. Being exposed to a steady series of technical challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Customers choose a consultant to do the toughest jobs. Creative projects, advanced implementations, puzzling or entrenched problems, and tricky migrations are the foundation for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for computer engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by building close customer relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused company from top to bottom. If you do not offer excellent people skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse group of personalities, then Progent is probably a poor fit.

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