Additional Facts About Opportunities with Us

Security Consultants, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent's commitment to providing network expertise and technical support to small and midsize organizations will offer you the opportunity to work closely with decision makers and contribute significantly to the growth of dynamic businesses.

Progent is looking for consultants who have verifiable certification in their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco consultants, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security credentials. Of course, we are familiar with "paper experts". Still, simply because a credential does not ensure excellence is no justification for not owning one. If you have mastered your field, then most of these tests should present no great difficulty. The point is that if you are a professional, then customers expect credentials. Progent will promote your skills, but you need to provide a baseline of certifications for us to market. If you are adamantly against the concept of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Enhance Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Team of Network Engineers

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a more capable consultant by enhancing your information technology skills and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this commitment by recruiting the best consulting experts for you to operate with, providing an advanced network and communications infrastructure, running proprietary software tools to enable the highest level of service, and by streamlining proven operational structures for attracting and keeping clients.

The decisive factor that differentiates us from other consulting firms is the high quality of our support professionals. Among the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with us, we have recruited the best talent covering a broad range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other crucial technologies, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be successful on larger jobs by leveraging the collective experience of our group of experts.

To promote the success of Progent's team, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful tools to do the job properly. Progent will exploit information technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office environment enables effortless communications, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with other Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or lose income with regular commutes to a physical office building, and all travel you do for in-person customer jobs is determined by your own time table, not ours. The most attractive part is that most of our support services can be done remotely, representing maximum efficiency for income-producing time. In fact, some of our staff do off-site consulting exclusively.

Our operations are set up for reacting rapidly and effectively to client needs through information sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Even though our engineers operate with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is unified, client issues and solutions are carefully tracked, documented, and archived for convenient reference, current engineer schedules are published to facilitate team tasks and enable trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually evaluated. We strengthen the sense of connection via monthly workgroup conferences and quarterly corporate events.

Most of our team is situated across Northern California, but we are building a rapidly growing team of network professionals throughout the United States. Our virtual office environment does away with regional boundaries that limit the productivity of traditional business structures. We enhance the package by offering a comprehensive benefit program to ensure the physical health and economic welfare of our team members and their families.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and operations groups live up to the high standards that characterizes Progent. These high-performance factors behind our growth are enabling us to target and land the scores of new clients we are currently acquiring each month. We lately celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective marketing organization.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a key for success with us. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of network challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Clients rely on a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or entrenched issues, and tricky migrations are the basis for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for network engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every day excited about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will work with some great folks, both by building strong client contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company through and through. If you don’t offer strong communications skills or like cooperating with a varied assortment of people, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor fit.

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

Enjoy Lifestyle Improvements and Technical Prowess with
