Fulltime Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent wants to hire fulltime, results-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco accredited system consultants with Cisco credentials; security professionals who have CISM or equivalent security certification; and high-end network architecture consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, high availability, workplace recovery, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also seeks employees who can join Progent's team of help desk support specialists and remote troubleshooting professionals. In addition, Progent is hiring experienced managers able to operate effectively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of talented and dedicated consultants, delivering attentive client services, and offering a competitive value-based pricing structure, Progent has been able to expand our customer base rapidly while providing consulting services to hundreds of companies in Northern California and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared information database, and a group approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a loyal customer list.

If you are a network consultant with troubleshooting experience, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's customers can enhance your skills through cooperation with our group of mutually supportive, expert consultants. Progent's commitment to providing network expertise and technical support to small companies will offer you the chance to collaborate closely with key players and add appreciably to the success of dynamic companies.

Progent is looking for technical professionals that can show verifiable credentials related to their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your Microsoft MCSE certificate. For Cisco experts, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For network security, you should have you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security credentials. Of course, Progent is aware of "paper experts". However, the fact that a credential can not guarantee excellence is no justification for not having one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of those certifications should present no great difficulty. The point is that if you are an expert, then customers expect credentials. We can promote your talents, but you must have basic certifications for us to work with. If you are adamantly opposed to the concept of credentials, Progent can understand and honor your position, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Working with the Top Group of Network Engineers

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a better consulting professional by improving your information technology skills and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the best professional experts for you to work with, offering an advanced network and communications infrastructure, using specialized software tools to enable the maximum level of support, and by optimizing our operational structures for finding and keeping customers.

The main factor that differentiates Progent from ordinary network support firms is the high caliber of our consulting team. Among the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with Progent, we have assembled top talent across a broad range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Macintosh, Linux, virtual servers, or other key areas, we deploy professionals who can help you to be successful on major jobs by leveraging the collective skills of Progent's team of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's team, we invest significantly in making available the best tools to do the job efficiently. Progent will exploit information technology to an impressive extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables effortless communications, cooperation, and information sharing with fellow Progent team members — all from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose revenue because of regular commutes to a conventional office building, and any driving you do for on-site customer work is based on your time table, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that most of our support services can be performed off-site, representing 100% efficiency for income-producing hours. In practice, some of our staff do off-site consulting only.

Our operations are geared towards responding rapidly and efficiently to client requirements via information sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Although Progent's engineers work with a high level of independence, dispatching is centralized, customer problems and solutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for convenient reference, current consultant schedules are broadcast to streamline team tasks and enable trouble escalation, and customer approval is continually monitored. We reinforce the sense of cooperation via monthly workgroup conferences and regular corporate events.

The majority of our team is situated across Northern California, but Progent is building a rapidly expanding team of network professionals from across the United States. Our virtual office environment eliminates geographic obstacles that limit the productivity of conventional business structures. We enhance the deal by providing a full employee care plan to ensure the physical health and economic welfare of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and operations teams match the excellence that characterizes Progent. These high-performance contributors to our success are helping us to identify and land the scores of new customers we are now engaging every month. We lately marked the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing operation.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with us. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of technical challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Clients choose consulting firms to do the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, advanced implementations, puzzling or chronic problems, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for what we do every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every morning excited about the opportunities ahead.

On the way, you will work with some great folks, both by establishing strong customer relationships and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their growth. Yes, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-focused organization heart and soul. If you do not have strong people skills or like working with a varied assortment of people, then Progent is probably a poor fit.

If all this seems good to you, we urge you to talk to us about our vision of the future of information technology consulting.
