Additional Facts About Work with Us

Staff Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent wants to hire fulltime, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco accredited network engineers who have Cisco certification; security professionals with CISM or equivalent security credentials; and advanced system design experts with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, workplace recovery, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring professionals to join our team of help desk support specialists and off-site troubleshooting professionals. Also, We are seeking experienced administrators who can perform productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of talented and dedicated professionals, delivering world-class customer services, and offering a competitive value-based fee structure, Progent has been able to expand our customer base dramatically while providing consulting services to numerous businesses in Northern California and across the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a shared information base, and a team approach to problem solving have helped Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a satisfied customer base.

If you are a network consultant with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or helping our customers can enhance your knowledge through cooperation with our group of mutually team-oriented, talented consultants. Progent's commitment to providing network expertise and computer help to small and midsize organizations will offer you the chance to work intimately with key players and add significantly to the growth of dynamic businesses.

We are hiring consultants who can show recognized certification related to their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your MCSE certificate. For Cisco consultants, have your CCIE or CCNP credential. For security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, CISM, or one of the other leading security certifications. Naturally, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Still, simply because a certificate does not guarantee expertise is no excuse for not earning one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of these tests should present no challenge. The bottom line is that if you are a professional, then customers expect certifications. Progent will promote your talents, but you must have a baseline of certifications for Progent to work with. In case you stand strongly against the concept of credentials, we can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Enhance Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Network Consultants

Progent's business climate will make you a better consultant by improving your technical skills and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the best professional experts for you to work with, providing an advanced system architecture, running proprietary application tools to enable the highest quality of support, and by streamlining proven operational structures for finding and maintaining customers.

The most important factor that distinguishes us from most network support firms is the quality of our service staff. Out of the scores of consultants who have joined us, we have recruited top talent covering a wide array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other key areas, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be successful on major jobs by combining the aggregate experience of our group of experts.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest significantly in making available the best technology to perform the job properly. Progent will exploit technology to an impressive degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables effortless communications, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent team members — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or lose income with daily drives to a conventional office, and any travel you do for on-site customer work is determined by your own time table, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that most of our support services can be performed off-site, offering maximum efficiency for income-producing time. In practice, some of our staff do off-site support only.

Progent's business structure is geared towards reacting quickly and efficiently to customer requirements via knowledge sharing and collaborative problem solving. Although our engineers operate with a great deal of independence, dispatching is centralized, customer issues and solutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and archived for convenient reference, up-to-date engineer availability is published to streamline group tasks and simplify problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is continually evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of connection through periodic team conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of our team is located across California, however Progent is attracting a rapidly expanding team of consulting professionals from across the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic boundaries that limit the efficiency of conventional business 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 live up to the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance factors behind our success are helping us to identify and sign up the scores of new clients we are now acquiring each month. We recently celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales organization.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with us. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in information technology. Being exposed to a continual series of network challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Clients rely on consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, leading-edge implementations, puzzling or entrenched problems, and tricky migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for network engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every day excited about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by establishing close customer relationships and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization through and through. If you don’t offer strong communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse group of people, then we are probably a poor match.

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