Career Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, results-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP certification; Cisco accredited network consultants with Cisco CCIE certification; security professionals with CISM or equivalent security certification; and advanced system architecture consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, high availability, disaster recovery, data preservation, and VMware. Progent also is looking for employees to work on our staff of helpdesk support technicians and off-site troubleshooting professionals. Also, Progent is hiring talented managers who can operate productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of talented and motivated professionals, delivering attentive customer care, and offering a competitive results-based fee model, We have been able to increase our client list rapidly while providing professional support to numerous companies in Northern California and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common knowledge database, and a group strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a satisfied customer list.

If you are an information technology consultant with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's customers can expand your knowledge via cooperation with Progent's staff of highly supportive, expert engineers. Progent's commitment to providing information technology expertise and technical help to small organizations will offer you the opportunity to work intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the growth of dynamic businesses.

Progent is hiring technical professionals who can show recognized certification related to their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have your Microsoft MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco experts, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP credential. For security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security certifications. Of course, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, the fact that a certificate does not guarantee excellence is no reason for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of those tests should present no challenge. The point is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients expect credentials. We will market your talents, but you need to provide a baseline of credentials for Progent to market. If you stand strongly opposed to the idea of credentials, Progent can understand and honor your opinion, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Enhance Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's work environment will make you a better consultant by improving your information technology skills and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the best professional talent for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art system architecture, running specialized software tools to deliver the maximum quality of support, and by optimizing proven operational models for attracting and keeping clients.

The most important factor that separates us from most consulting companies is the high quality of our support professionals. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled the best talent across a wide array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other crucial application, we engage experts who can help you to be effective on larger projects by leveraging the aggregate skills of our team of experts.

To ensure the success of our consultants, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful tools to do the job properly. Progent will leverage information technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables effortless communications, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with other Progent team members — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or lose income because of regular commutes to a physical office, and all travel you do for on-site customer jobs is based on your schedule, not ours. The most attractive part is that much of our support work can be done remotely, offering 100% efficiency for income-producing time. In practice, some Progent team members do remote consulting only.

Our operations are set up for responding quickly and efficiently to client needs via knowledge sharing and cooperative problem solving. Although Progent's engineers operate with a high level of freedom, dispatching is centralized, customer issues and resolutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and archived for convenient retrieval, up-to-date engineer schedules are published to facilitate group projects and simplify trouble escalation, and customer approval is always monitored. We reinforce the sense of cooperation via periodic workgroup conferences and regular company-wide events.

The majority of our team is situated across California, however we are attracting a rapidly growing team of network experts from across America. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with regional boundaries that restrict the efficiency of conventional company models. We enhance the deal by offering a comprehensive benefit plan to ensure the physical health and financial security of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's sales and administration teams match the high standards that characterizes Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s success are enabling us to identify and land the 50-60 new clients we are currently engaging every month. We recently celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a key for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a steady stream of network challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Customers choose consultants to do the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, leading-edge deployments, vexing or chronic problems, and difficult upgrades are the basis for our services every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for network professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will wake up every day excited about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will meet some great folks, both by establishing strong client relationships and by working 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 don’t have strong communications skills or enjoy working with a diverse group of people, then we are probably not a good match.

If all this sounds good to you, we urge you to talk to Progent about our vision of the future of information technology consulting.
