More Information Concerning Work with Us

Fulltime Work for Network Engineers, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent wants to find staff-level, solutions-driven Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited system consultants who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security consultants with CISSP or comparable security credentials; and advanced system architecture experts with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, high availability, workplace recovery, data preservation, and VMware. Progent also seeks professionals to work on Progent's team of helpdesk service specialists and off-site troubleshooting experts. Also, Progent is seeking experienced administrators who can perform effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of talented and dedicated professionals, delivering attentive client services, and offering a competitive results-based fee structure, Progent has managed to increase our client base rapidly while providing professional support to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and across the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared knowledge base, and a team strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a loyal customer base.

If you are a network professional with technical support experience, joining Progent or working for our clients can enhance your knowledge through interaction with Progent's staff of mutually team-oriented, expert engineers. Progent's commitment to delivering information technology consulting and technical support to small companies will offer you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with decision makers and contribute significantly to the growth of exciting businesses.

Progent is hiring technical professionals who have verifiable credentials related to their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. For Cisco experts, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security credentials. Of course, we are aware of "paper experts". Notwithstanding, simply because a certificate does not ensure excellence is no reason for not having one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of those tests should present no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers expect credentials. Progent can broadcast your talents, but you should provide a baseline of credentials for Progent to work with. If you are adamantly against the idea of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

Progent will exploit information technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows seamless communications, cooperation, and information exchange with other Progent team members — all from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or lose income with regular drives to a conventional office, and any travel you do for in-person customer work is based on your time table, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that much of Progent's support work can be performed remotely, offering maximum productivity for income-producing time. In fact, some of our team members do off-site consulting exclusively.

Our business structure is geared towards reacting quickly and efficiently to client needs through knowledge sharing and collaborative problem solving. Even though Progent's engineers work with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is unified, client problems and solutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and organized for convenient retrieval, current consultant schedules are broadcast to streamline group tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and client approval is always monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation via periodic team meetings and regular company-wide events.

Most of our team is located across California, however we are building a quickly growing group of network professionals throughout America. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional obstacles that limit the productivity of traditional business models. We enhance the deal by providing a comprehensive employee care program to ensure the physical health and financial security of our employees and their families.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, our sales and administration teams live up to the excellence that is Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s success are helping us to identify and sign up the scores of new customers we are now engaging every month. We recently marked the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective marketing operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with us. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of network challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Clients rely on consulting firms to do the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, advanced deployments, vexing or chronic issues, and tricky upgrades are the basis for what we do daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every day excited about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will meet some great people, both by building close customer contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization through and through. If you do not offer excellent communications skills or like cooperating with a varied group of personalities, then we are in all likelihood not a good fit.

If this sounds right for you, we urge you to contact us about our view of the future of information technology consulting.
