Details Concerning Work with Us

Career Work for Network Engineers, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Help Technicians

Progent wants to hire full-time, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco certified system engineers with Cisco CCIE credentials; security consultants with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security credentials; and advanced system architecture consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, business continuity, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for professionals who can join our staff of helpdesk support technicians and remote troubleshooting professionals. Also, Progent is looking for talented managers who can perform effectively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of skilled and motivated professionals, delivering attentive client care, and following a strong results-focused fee structure, We have been able to increase our client base dramatically while providing consulting services to numerous companies in Northern California and throughout the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared knowledge database, and a team approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a loyal client base.

For an information technology professional with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or helping our customers will expand your skills through cooperation with Progent's staff of mutually team-oriented, talented consultants. Progent's commitment to delivering network consulting and technical support to small and midsize companies will give you the chance to collaborate closely with decision makers and add significantly to the success of dynamic businesses.

We are hiring consultants who have recognized certification in their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security credentials. Naturally, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” However, simply because a certificate can not ensure expertise is no justification for not having one. If you have mastered your field, then most of those tests should pose no challenge. The bottom line is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then customers expect credentials. We will promote your talents, but you need to have basic credentials for us to work with. If you are adamantly opposed to the idea of certifications, we can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not a good fit.

Contract Work for Qualified Experts for
Windows, Apple OS, Linux/UNIX, and Sun Solaris Technology

Improve Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Working with the Top Group of Computer Consultants

Progent's company culture will make you a better consulting professional by improving your information technology knowledge and boosting the loyalty of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the best consulting talent for you to work with, offering an advanced system infrastructure, running custom software utilities to deliver the maximum level of service, and by optimizing our business models for attracting and maintaining customers.

The decisive factor that separates us from most network support companies is the quality of our consulting team. Out of the scores of consultants who have teamed with us, we have assembled the best expertise covering a broad range of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other key application, we deploy professionals who can help you to be successful on larger jobs by combining the collective experience of our team of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's team, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful tools to do the job properly. We will exploit information technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables effortless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit income with regular drives to a conventional office building, and all driving you do for on-site customer jobs is determined by your schedule, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that much of Progent's consulting work can be done off-site, representing 100% efficiency for income-producing time. In fact, some of our team members do off-site consulting exclusively.

Progent's operations are set up for reacting rapidly and effectively to client needs through knowledge exchange and cooperative problem resolution. Even though our consultants operate with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, client issues and resolutions are meticulously monitored, documented, and organized for convenient retrieval, current engineer availability is broadcast to streamline team projects and simplify problem escalation, and client approval is continually evaluated. We strengthen the sense of cooperation through periodic workgroup conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of our consultants are located across Northern California, but Progent is attracting a quickly growing team of network experts from across America. Our virtual office environment does away with geographic obstacles that restrict the efficiency of traditional business models. We complete the deal by offering a full employee care program to promote the physical health and financial welfare of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and administration groups match the high standards that defines Progent. These top-notch contributors to our success are helping us to target and land the 50-60 new clients we are now engaging every month. We lately celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other job in network technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of network challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Clients rely on consulting firms to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or entrenched issues, and difficult migrations are the foundation for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for computer engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every morning excited about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will work with some great people, both by building strong client contacts and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented company from top to bottom. If you do not have strong people skills or like cooperating with a varied group of people, then we are probably a poor match.

If this seems right for you, we invite you to contact us about our view of the future of network consulting.
