Career Jobs for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent wants to find fulltime, results-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco accredited system engineers with Cisco CCIE credentials; security consultants with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security certification; and advanced system design experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, fault tolerance, disaster recovery, data protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring professionals who can join Progent's team of helpdesk service specialists and remote troubleshooting experts. In addition, We are looking for experienced administrators who can operate productively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of skilled and motivated consultants, providing world-class customer care, and following a competitive value-focused fee model, We have managed to increase our customer base rapidly while delivering professional support to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a common knowledge base, and a team approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a loyal customer list.

If you are a network professional with technical support expertise, joining Progent or helping our clients will enhance your skills via cooperation with Progent's group of mutually supportive, expert engineers. Progent's focus on providing network expertise and technical support to small and midsize organizations will give you the chance to work intimately with decision makers and add appreciably to the growth of dynamic businesses.

Progent is looking for consultants who can show recognized credentials related to their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. In the case of Cisco experts, show us your CCIE or CCNP credential. For security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security certifications. Naturally, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Still, simply because a certificate can not ensure excellence is no reason for not earning one. If you know your field, then most of those tests should present no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself an expert, then customers deserve to see credentials. We can broadcast your skills, but you need to provide standard certifications for us to market. In case you stand adamantly opposed to the idea of credentials, we can understand and respect your opinion, but you are likely not a good fit.

Improve Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Working with a Great Team of Computer Consultants

Progent's work environment will make you a better consultant by improving your information technology knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this commitment by recruiting the best consulting experts for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art system architecture, using proprietary software tools to deliver the highest level of support, and by optimizing our operational models for finding and retaining customers.

The decisive factor that separates Progent from other network support firms is the excellence of our consultants. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with us, we have assembled the best talent across a wide array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Apple, Linux, virtual servers, or other key technologies, we engage professionals who can help you to be successful on major jobs by combining the collective experience of our group of professionals.

To promote the productivity of our team, we invest significantly in providing the best tools to do the work properly. Progent will leverage information technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables effortless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with other Progent team members — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit revenue because of daily commutes to a conventional office, and any travel you do for in-person customer jobs is based on your schedule, not Progent's. The best part is that much of Progent's support work can be performed off-site, offering 100% efficiency for billable time. In practice, some Progent team members do off-site consulting exclusively.

Progent's business structure is set up for reacting rapidly and effectively to customer needs through knowledge exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Even though our engineers operate with a high level of independence, dispatching is centralized, client problems and solutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and archived for convenient retrieval, current consultant schedules are broadcast to facilitate group projects and simplify problem escalation, and client approval is always evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of connection through periodic workgroup meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's team is situated across California, but we are attracting a quickly growing team of network professionals throughout the United States. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional obstacles that limit the productivity of traditional business models. We complete the deal by offering a full employee care plan to promote the physical health and financial security of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, Progent's marketing and operations groups match the high standards that defines Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s success are enabling us to identify and land the scores of new customers we are now engaging every month. We lately marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also a strong marketing operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with us. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of technical challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Clients choose consulting firms to do the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, leading-edge implementations, vexing or chronic problems, and tricky migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for computer professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by establishing strong customer contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused organization through and through. If you don’t offer excellent communications skills or like cooperating with a varied assortment of people, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor match.

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