Career Jobs for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, solutions-driven Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco certified system consultants who have Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security consultants with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security certification; and advanced network architecture experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high availability, workplace recovery, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring professionals who can join our staff of help desk support specialists and off-site support experts. Also, Progent is seeking experienced managers who can operate productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and dedicated consultants, delivering world-class client care, and offering a strong value-focused fee structure, Progent has been able to expand our customer list rapidly while providing consulting services to numerous companies in Northern California and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared knowledge base, and a team strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied client list.

If you are an information technology professional with technical support expertise, joining Progent or helping Progent's clients can expand your skills via cooperation with our group of mutually supportive, expert consultants. Our commitment to providing network expertise and computer support to small and midsize companies will give you the chance to work closely with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the growth of dynamic companies.

Progent is looking for consultants who can show verifiable certification related to their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco experts, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security certifications. Naturally, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Nevertheless, simply because a credential can not guarantee excellence is no justification for not having one. If you know your stuff, then most of these tests should pose no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then customers deserve to see certifications. Progent can market your talents, but you need to provide basic credentials for Progent to market. If you stand strongly against the idea of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are likely not a good fit.

Enhance Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Network Engineers

Progent's company culture will make you a more capable consultant by improving your information technology skills and increasing the satisfaction of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the top consulting talent for you to work with, providing an advanced system architecture, running proprietary software tools to enable the highest quality of support, and by optimizing our operational models for finding and maintaining customers.

The decisive factor that differentiates Progent from ordinary consulting companies is the quality of our support professionals. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have joined us, we have assembled top talent covering a broad array of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other vital technologies, we engage experts who can enable you to be successful on larger projects by leveraging the aggregate skills of Progent's team of professionals.

To promote the success of Progent's team, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful technology to do the job properly. Progent will leverage information technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables seamless connectivity, cooperation, and information sharing with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t waste time or lose revenue because of 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 best part is that much of Progent's consulting services can be done remotely, offering maximum efficiency for income-producing time. In fact, some Progent team members do remote support only.

Our business structure is set up for reacting quickly and effectively to customer needs through knowledge sharing and cooperative problem solving. Although our consultants operate with a high level of independence, dispatching is centralized, client problems and resolutions are carefully tracked, documented, and organized for convenient reference, up-to-date engineer schedules are broadcast to streamline group tasks and simplify problem escalation, and customer satisfaction is always monitored. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation via periodic workgroup meetings and regular company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's consultants are situated across California, but Progent is building a rapidly growing group of network experts throughout the U.S. Progent's virtual office environment eliminates regional obstacles that restrict the productivity of traditional company structures. We enhance the package by providing a full benefit program to ensure the health and financial security of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, our marketing and operations teams live up to the high standards that defines Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s success are helping us to target and land the scores of new clients we are now engaging every month. We recently celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing operation.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a key for success with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of technical challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Clients choose a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, advanced implementations, vexing or chronic issues, and difficult migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for network professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every morning excited about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will meet some great people, both by building close client relationships and by working closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented organization heart and soul. 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 match.

If this seems right for you, we invite you to contact Progent about our view of the new paradigm of network consulting.
