Career Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to find staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco certified network engineers who have CCIE credentials; security professionals with CISSP or comparable security certification; and high-end system design consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high availability, disaster recovery, data protection, and VMware. Progent also seeks professionals who can work on Progent's staff of help desk support technicians and off-site troubleshooting experts. In addition, We are seeking experienced managers who can operate productively in our fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of talented and motivated professionals, providing attentive customer services, and offering a strong results-based fee model, We have managed to expand our client list dramatically while providing professional support to numerous businesses in Northern California and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office environment, a common knowledge database, and a group approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a loyal client base.

If you are a network professional with technical support expertise, joining Progent or helping Progent's customers will expand your knowledge through interaction with our staff of mutually supportive, expert consultants. Our focus on delivering information technology expertise and computer support to small and midsize companies will offer you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the success of dynamic companies.

We are looking for consultants that can show verifiable certification related to their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco experts, show us your CCIE or CCNP credential. For security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security certifications. Naturally, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” However, simply because a credential does not guarantee excellence is no excuse for not owning one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of these tests should be no great difficulty. The point is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then customers deserve to see credentials. Progent will promote your skills, but you must provide basic credentials for us to work with. If you are strongly against the idea of credentials, Progent can understand and honor your position, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the top consulting talent for you to operate with, providing an advanced network and communications architecture, running proprietary software utilities to enable the maximum quality of support, and by optimizing our operational models for finding and retaining clients.

The most important factor that distinguishes us from typical consulting firms is the high quality of our support professionals. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled top talent across a broad array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Mac, Linux, virtual servers, or other key technologies, we deploy experts who can help you to be successful on larger jobs by combining the aggregate skills of Progent's team of professionals.

To promote the success of our team, we invest significantly in making available the best technology to do the work efficiently. We will exploit information technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables seamless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent team members — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit income with daily drives to a conventional office, and all driving you do for on-site client work is based on your schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that much of Progent's support services can be done off-site, offering 100% efficiency for income-producing time. In practice, some Progent staff do off-site consulting only.

Progent's operations are set up for reacting rapidly and efficiently to client requirements through information sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Although Progent's engineers operate with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is unified, client problems and resolutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and archived for convenient reference, up-to-date engineer availability is published to facilitate group tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is always monitored. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation through periodic team meetings and regular corporate events.

The majority of our team is located across California, however Progent is attracting a rapidly growing team of network experts throughout the U.S. Our virtual office environment does away with geographic obstacles that limit the efficiency of conventional company structures. We enhance the package by offering a full employee care program to ensure the health and economic welfare of our team members and their relations.

Not only do we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and administration teams live up to the excellence that characterizes Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s growth are helping us to identify and land the 50-60 new clients we are currently engaging each month. We recently celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales operation.

Having a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a continual series of network challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Customers rely on consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative projects, advanced deployments, puzzling or entrenched problems, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for what we do daily. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for computer professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will awake every day excited about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by building close customer contacts and by operating 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 organization through and through. If you don’t have strong communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a varied assortment of people, then we are probably not a good fit.

If all this sounds good to you, we urge you to contact us about our vision of the new paradigm of network consulting.
