Details About Jobs with Us

Career Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to find full-time, results-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco accredited system consultants who have Cisco CCIE or CCNP credentials; security consultants who have CISA or equivalent security certification; and high-end network architecture consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high uptime, disaster recovery, data preservation, and VMware. Progent also is looking for employees to work on our team of helpdesk support technicians and off-site support experts. Also, Progent is hiring talented administrators able to perform effectively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of skilled and motivated consultants, providing world-class customer services, and offering a competitive value-focused pricing model, Progent has been able to expand our client list rapidly while delivering consulting services to numerous companies in Northern California and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a shared knowledge database, and a group strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied customer list.

If you are an information technology professional with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or working for Progent's customers will enhance your knowledge via interaction with Progent's group of highly supportive, expert consultants. Our focus on providing information technology consulting and computer support to small and midsize companies will offer you the opportunity to work closely with key players and contribute appreciably to the growth of dynamic companies.

We are looking for technical professionals who can show verifiable credentials related to their technical expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security certifications. Naturally, Progent is aware of "paper experts". Still, simply because a certificate can not guarantee expertise is no reason for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of those tests should present no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then clients expect credentials. We will promote your skills, but you need to have standard credentials for us to market. In case you happen to be adamantly opposed to the concept of certifications, Progent can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not a good fit.

Enhance Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Working with a Great Group of Network Engineers

Progent's company culture will allow you to become a better consultant by enhancing your information technology skills and boosting the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the top professional talent for you to operate with, offering an advanced system infrastructure, using specialized application tools to deliver the maximum level of service, and by optimizing proven operational structures for attracting and retaining customers.

The decisive factor that distinguishes us from other consulting companies is the quality of our service staff. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled top talent across a broad array of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Apple, Linux, virtual servers, or other key application, we engage experts who can enable you to be effective on larger jobs by combining the collective experience of our group of experts.

To promote the success of our team, we invest significantly in providing the best tools to perform the job properly. We will leverage technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment allows seamless communications, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or lose revenue because of daily drives to a physical office, and all travel you do for in-person client work is determined by your own schedule, not ours. The most attractive part is that most of our support services can be performed off-site, representing 100% efficiency for income-producing hours. In fact, some of our staff do off-site consulting only.

Progent's business structure is geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to customer requirements through information exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Even though our consultants work with a high level of independence, resource allocation is centralized, client problems and resolutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and archived for easy retrieval, up-to-date consultant schedules are broadcast to facilitate team tasks and enable problem escalation, and client satisfaction is continually evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of connection via monthly team meetings and regular company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's team is located across Northern California, but Progent is building a rapidly expanding team of consulting experts from across the United States. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with regional boundaries that restrict the efficiency of traditional business models. We complete the deal by providing a full employee care plan to promote the physical health and financial security of our team members and their families.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, our sales and operations teams live up to the excellence that is Progent. These top-notch factors behind our success are helping us to identify and sign up the scores of new customers we are now acquiring each month. Progent lately celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong marketing operation.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with us. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other job in information technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of network challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Clients choose consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, advanced implementations, vexing or chronic issues, and difficult migrations are the foundation for what we do every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for computer professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every morning excited about the challenges ahead.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by establishing strong client relationships and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Yes, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused organization heart and soul. If you do not offer strong people skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied group of people, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor fit.

If all this sounds right for you, we invite you to talk to Progent about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.

Enjoy Lifestyle Benefits and Professional Success with
