Fulltime Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Support Technicians

Progent wants to find full-time, results-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco accredited network consultants with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA credentials; security professionals who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security credentials; and high-end system architecture consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high uptime, disaster recovery, information preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for professionals who can work on our team of helpdesk service specialists and off-site support experts. Also, We are looking for experienced administrators who can operate productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and dedicated consultants, providing world-class customer services, and offering a competitive results-focused pricing model, We have managed to expand our client list dramatically while providing professional support to numerous businesses in Northern California and across the United States. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared information database, and a team strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a talented staff and a loyal client list.

If you are a network professional with troubleshooting experience, joining Progent or working for our customers will enhance your skills through interaction with Progent's staff of mutually supportive, talented engineers. Progent's focus on delivering network consulting and computer support to small organizations will give you the opportunity to work closely with decision makers and contribute significantly to the success of dynamic companies.

Progent is hiring consultants that have recognized credentials related to their special focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your MCSE credential. For Cisco professionals, have your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is familiar with “paper MCSEs.” However, simply because a credential can not ensure expertise is no justification for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of those tests should be no great difficulty. The point is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients expect certifications. Progent will promote your skills, but you should have standard credentials for Progent to market. If you stand adamantly opposed to the idea of certifications, we can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Working with a Great Team of Computer Engineers

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a more capable consultant by improving your information technology knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the top professional talent for you to operate with, providing an advanced system infrastructure, running custom application utilities to enable the highest level of support, and by streamlining our operational models for finding and keeping customers.

The most important factor that separates Progent from other network support firms is the quality of our consulting team. Out of the scores of consultants who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited top talent covering a wide range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, server virtualization, or other crucial application, we deploy experts who can enable you to be effective on major projects by leveraging the collective experience of our group of professionals.

To promote the success of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in making available the most powerful technology to perform the work efficiently. We will exploit technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows effortless communications, collaboration, and information exchange with fellow Progent consultants — all from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or lose income with regular drives to a physical office building, and any travel you do for on-site customer jobs is based on your schedule, not Progent's. The best benefit is that much of Progent's support services can be performed off-site, offering 100% productivity for income-producing time. In fact, some of our team members do remote consulting only.

Our operations are geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to customer needs through knowledge sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Even though Progent's engineers operate with a high level of freedom, resource allocation is unified, client problems and resolutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for easy reference, up-to-date consultant availability is published to facilitate team tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is always evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of connection via monthly workgroup conferences and regular corporate events.

Most of our team is located throughout California, however Progent is building a quickly growing group of network professionals throughout America. Our virtual office environment does away with regional obstacles that limit the efficiency of conventional company models. We enhance the deal by providing a full employee care plan to ensure the physical health and economic welfare of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consultants, Progent's sales and operations groups match the high standards that is Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s growth are helping us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are currently acquiring each month. We recently marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective sales organization.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a key for growth with us. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a continual series of technical challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Customers rely on consulting firms to do the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, advanced implementations, vexing or entrenched issues, and tricky upgrades are the basis for what we do daily. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for computer professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every day excited about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by establishing strong customer relationships and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented organization from top to bottom. If you do not have excellent people skills or like cooperating with a diverse group of personalities, then we are in all likelihood not a good fit.

If all this seems good to you, we invite you to contact us about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.

Enjoy Quality of Life Improvements and Professional Prowess with
Our Sophisticated Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent believes that a well designed and implemented information system can be a pivotal piece for accelerating a firm's growth, and we apply this philosophy in our own system environment.
