Fulltime Jobs for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent wants to hire staff-level, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP certification; Cisco certified system consultants who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP credentials; security consultants who have CISA or equivalent security credentials; and advanced system architecture consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, fault tolerance, business continuity, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring professionals who can work on Progent's team of help desk support technicians and off-site support professionals. In addition, We are looking for talented administrators able to operate productively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of talented and dedicated consultants, delivering attentive client services, and offering a competitive results-focused fee structure, Progent has been able to increase our client list dramatically while providing professional support to numerous companies in Northern California and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared information base, and a team strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a loyal customer base.

If you are a network professional with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or working for our clients can enhance your skills via interaction with our group of highly supportive, expert consultants. Progent's focus on delivering network expertise and computer support to small and midsize organizations will offer you the chance to collaborate intimately with key players and add significantly to the growth of exciting businesses.

Progent is looking for technical professionals that have verifiable certification in their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your MCSE credential. For Cisco experts, show us your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should have you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other top security certifications. Of course, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". However, the fact that a certificate does not ensure excellence is no reason for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then most of those tests should present no challenge. The bottom line is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients deserve to see credentials. We will market your skills, but you must provide standard certifications for Progent to work with. If you are strongly against the concept of credentials, Progent can understand and respect your position, but you are likely not a good fit.

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

Progent's company culture will make you a better consultant by improving your technical knowledge and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the best professional experts for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, using custom software utilities to deliver the highest level of support, and by optimizing our business models for attracting and maintaining customers.

The most important factor that separates Progent from other consulting companies is the high quality of our support professionals. Among the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled top expertise across a broad array of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other key technologies, we deploy experts who can enable you to be successful on larger jobs by combining the collective experience of Progent's group of professionals.

To promote the success of Progent's team, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful technology to perform the job efficiently. We will leverage information technology to an impressive extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables effortless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose income because of regular commutes to a conventional office building, and any driving you do for on-site client work is based on your own time table, not ours. The best benefit is that much of our support services can be performed remotely, representing maximum productivity for income-producing hours. In fact, some of our staff do remote support only.

Progent's business structure is set up for reacting quickly and effectively to client requirements via information sharing and cooperative problem solving. Although Progent's consultants operate with a high level of independence, dispatching is unified, client issues and solutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and organized for easy reference, current consultant availability is broadcast to streamline group tasks and enable problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is always monitored. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation through monthly team conferences and quarterly corporate events.

The majority of Progent's team is situated throughout Northern California, but we are attracting a quickly expanding team of consulting professionals throughout the United States. Progent's virtual office environment eliminates geographic boundaries that limit the efficiency of conventional business models. We enhance the deal by providing a full benefit plan to ensure the health and financial welfare of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, our marketing and operations teams match the high standards that defines Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s growth are helping us to target and sign up the scores of new clients we are now engaging every month. Progent lately marked the delivery of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong sales operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a key for growth with us. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of network challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Clients rely on a consultant to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or chronic problems, and difficult migrations are the basis for what we do daily. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for network engineers in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some great people, both by establishing strong customer contacts and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization heart and soul. If you don’t have strong communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse group of people, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor match.

If this sounds right for you, we invite you to contact us about our view of the future of information technology consulting.
