Career Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Online Help Professionals

Progent is seeking to find full-time, results-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credentials; Cisco certified system consultants with Cisco CCIE certification; security consultants with CISSP or equivalent security certification; and advanced system architecture experts with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, high uptime, business continuity, data preservation, and VMware. Progent also seeks employees who can work on Progent's staff of helpdesk service specialists and off-site troubleshooting experts. Also, Progent is seeking experienced administrators who can operate effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and dedicated professionals, providing attentive customer care, and following a strong value-based fee model, We have been able to increase our customer base dramatically while providing professional services to numerous companies in Northern California and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a shared knowledge database, and a group approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a loyal client base.

If you are a network consultant with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or working for our customers can expand your knowledge through interaction with our staff of highly supportive, talented consultants. Progent's focus on delivering information technology expertise and computer support to small and midsize organizations will offer you the opportunity to work closely with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the success of exciting companies.

We are hiring technical professionals who can show verifiable certification related to their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco professionals, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP credential. For network security, you should show you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security credentials. Of course, we are familiar with "paper experts". Still, simply because a credential can not ensure excellence is no justification for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of these tests should present no great difficulty. The point is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients deserve to see certifications. We can promote your skills, but you must have a baseline of credentials for us to market. In case you happen to be strongly against the concept of certifications, we can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are likely not a good fit.

Enhance Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Working with a Great Group of Computer Consultants

Progent's company culture will allow you to become a more capable professional by enhancing your technical knowledge and boosting the loyalty of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the top professional talent for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, using custom application tools to deliver the highest level of service, and by streamlining our business models for finding and maintaining clients.

The decisive factor that separates Progent from ordinary network support firms is the high quality of our consultants. Among the scores of consultants who have joined Progent, we have assembled the best talent covering a wide array of technical areas. Be it Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other vital application, we engage professionals who can enable you to be successful on major jobs by combining the collective skills of Progent's team of professionals.

To promote the productivity of our team, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful tools to perform the job properly. We will exploit information technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables seamless communications, cooperation, and information exchange with other Progent consultants — all from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit revenue with daily drives to a physical office building, and all driving you do for on-site client jobs is determined by your own schedule, not ours. The most attractive part is that much of Progent's support work can be done remotely, offering maximum efficiency for income-producing hours. In practice, some Progent staff do off-site consulting exclusively.

Progent's business structure is set up for responding quickly and effectively to customer requirements via knowledge exchange and cooperative problem solving. Even though Progent's consultants work with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, client problems and solutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and archived for easy retrieval, up-to-date consultant schedules are published to streamline team projects and enable trouble escalation, and client approval is continually evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation through monthly team meetings and quarterly corporate events.

Most of our consultants are located across California, however we are building a rapidly expanding team of network experts from across the United States. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional boundaries that restrict the efficiency of conventional company structures. We complete the package by offering a full benefit program to ensure the health and financial security of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and administration teams live up to the high standards that defines Progent. These high-performance factors behind our success are helping us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are now acquiring each month. We recently celebrated the providing of services 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.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a key for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of technical challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Customers rely on a consultant to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or entrenched problems, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for network professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every morning excited about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by building strong customer contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-focused company from top to bottom. If you do not offer excellent communications skills or enjoy working with a diverse group of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor fit.

If all this seems good to you, we urge you to talk to us about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.

Enjoy Lifestyle Benefits and Technical Success with
