Details About Jobs with Us

Fulltime Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent wants to hire fulltime, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco certified system consultants who have CCIE credentials; security professionals with CISM or comparable security credentials; and advanced network design experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high uptime, business continuity, data protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring professionals to work on our staff of help desk service technicians and off-site troubleshooting professionals. Also, Progent is seeking experienced managers who can perform effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of skilled and motivated professionals, providing attentive client care, and following a competitive value-focused fee structure, Progent has been able to increase our customer list rapidly while providing consulting services to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and across the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a common knowledge base, and a group approach to problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a satisfied customer list.

If you are an information technology consultant with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or helping Progent's customers can expand your knowledge through interaction with Progent's group of mutually supportive, talented engineers. Our focus on providing network consulting and technical help to small organizations will offer you the chance to work closely with key players and contribute appreciably to the success of dynamic companies.

Progent is looking for technical professionals who can show recognized certification related to their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco consultants, show us your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security certifications. Naturally, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Notwithstanding, the fact that a credential can not guarantee expertise is no justification for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of these certifications should be no great difficulty. The point is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers deserve to see certifications. We can broadcast your talents, but you must have basic credentials for us to market. In case you happen to be strongly against the concept of certifications, Progent can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Working with the Top Group of Network Consultants

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a better consultant by improving your information technology skills and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the top professional talent for you to work with, offering an advanced network and communications infrastructure, using specialized software tools to deliver the maximum level of service, and by optimizing our business models for attracting and keeping clients.

The most important factor that distinguishes us from ordinary consulting firms is the excellence of our consulting team. Among the scores of consultants who have joined Progent, we have assembled the best expertise covering a broad array of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux, server virtualization, or other vital areas, we engage experts who can enable you to be successful on major projects by combining the collective experience of Progent's group of experts.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's team, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful technology to do the work efficiently. Progent will exploit technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office environment enables effortless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or lose revenue with regular drives to a physical office, and any travel you do for on-site client jobs is determined by your schedule, not ours. The best benefit is that most of Progent's consulting work can be performed off-site, representing 100% efficiency for income-producing hours. In practice, some Progent team members do off-site support only.

Progent's operations are geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to client requirements via information exchange and cooperative problem solving. Although our engineers work with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, client problems and solutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and organized for easy retrieval, current engineer schedules are published to streamline team tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and client approval is always monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation through monthly workgroup meetings and regular corporate events.

Most of our team is situated across California, however Progent is building a quickly growing group of consulting experts from across the U.S. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic boundaries that restrict the efficiency of traditional company structures. We enhance the package by offering a full benefit plan to ensure the physical health and financial security of our employees and their families.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, our marketing and operations groups live up to the excellence that is Progent. These top-notch contributors to our success are helping us to identify and land the 50-60 new customers we are now acquiring each month. We recently marked the providing of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing operation.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with us. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of network challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Clients choose a consultant to perform the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or entrenched problems, and tricky migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for computer professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every day excited about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will work with some great people, both by building strong customer contacts and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented organization from top to bottom. If you don’t offer excellent communications skills or enjoy working with a diverse assortment of personalities, then Progent is probably not a good match.

If all this seems right for you, we urge you to contact Progent about our view of the future of network consulting.
