Details Concerning Jobs with Us

Fulltime Jobs for Network Engineers, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to find fulltime, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited system engineers with CCIE credentials; security consultants who have CISA or comparable security certification; and advanced system architecture experts with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, disaster recovery, data protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring employees to join our team of help desk service technicians and off-site support experts. In addition, Progent is hiring talented managers who can perform productively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of talented and dedicated consultants, providing world-class customer services, and following a strong value-based fee structure, Progent has managed to increase our customer base dramatically while providing professional support to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common information database, and a team strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a loyal client list.

For an information technology consultant with troubleshooting experience, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's clients will enhance your skills via interaction with Progent's staff of highly supportive, talented consultants. Our commitment to providing network expertise and technical support to small and midsize organizations will offer you the chance to work closely with decision makers and add appreciably to the success of dynamic companies.

Progent is hiring technical professionals that can show verifiable certification related to their technical focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco experts, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security credentials. Naturally, we are aware of "paper experts". Nevertheless, simply because a credential does not guarantee expertise is no justification for not earning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of those certifications should present no great difficulty. The point is that if you call yourself an expert, then customers deserve to see certifications. Progent can broadcast your talents, but you need to have standard certifications for us to market. If you happen to be strongly against the idea of credentials, we can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not a good fit.

Improve Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Computer Consultants

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a better professional by enhancing your information technology knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this commitment by attracting the best consulting experts for you to operate with, offering an advanced network and communications architecture, using proprietary application tools to deliver the highest level of support, and by optimizing proven business models for finding and maintaining clients.

The main factor that separates Progent from other network support companies is the excellence of our service staff. Out of the scores of consultants who have joined us, we have recruited the best talent across a broad range of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other key areas, we deploy professionals who can help you to be effective on major jobs by leveraging the collective experience of our group of experts.

To promote the success of our consultants, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful tools to perform the work efficiently. Progent will exploit information technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows effortless connectivity, collaboration, and information exchange with other Progent team members — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose revenue with regular commutes to a conventional office, and any driving you do for on-site customer work is based on your schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that much of our consulting work can be performed off-site, offering 100% efficiency for billable hours. In fact, some Progent team members do off-site support exclusively.

Our business structure is geared towards reacting quickly and efficiently to client needs through knowledge sharing and collaborative problem solving. Although our engineers work with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, customer issues and resolutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and organized for convenient retrieval, up-to-date consultant schedules are broadcast to facilitate group tasks and enable trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is always monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation via monthly workgroup conferences and quarterly corporate events.

Most of Progent's team is located across Northern California, but we are building a quickly expanding team of network experts throughout the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional obstacles that limit the productivity of conventional business models. We complete the package by offering a comprehensive benefit program to ensure the physical health and economic security of our employees and their families.

Just as we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and operations groups live up to the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s growth are helping us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are currently engaging every month. Progent recently celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing organization.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a key for success with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a continual series of network challenges is what keeps professional support interesting. Customers choose consultants to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or chronic issues, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for our services daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for network engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every morning excited about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will meet some great people, both by establishing strong client relationships and by working 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 organization from top to bottom. If you don’t offer excellent people skills or like cooperating with a diverse group of personalities, then we are probably not a good match.

If this sounds right for you, we urge you to talk to Progent about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.

Enjoy Quality of Life Improvements and Professional Success with
Progent's Sophisticated Virtual Office Environment

Progent believes that a well designed and implemented network can be a crucial piece for accelerating any company's success, and we apply this philosophy in our own system environment.
