Additional Facts About Work with Us

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

Progent is seeking to hire staff-level, solutions-driven Microsoft certified engineers with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco certified system consultants with Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security consultants who have CISM or comparable security certification; and high-end network architecture consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high availability, disaster recovery, data preservation, and VMware. Progent also is hiring professionals who can join our team of desktop service specialists and remote troubleshooting professionals. In addition, Progent is looking for talented administrators able to perform effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of skilled and motivated professionals, providing attentive customer services, and offering a competitive value-based pricing model, We have managed to increase our client list dramatically while delivering consulting support to numerous companies in Northern California and across the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a common information database, and a team approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to retain a talented consulting team and a satisfied customer list.

For a network professional with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or helping our clients will expand your knowledge via interaction with Progent's staff of highly supportive, talented consultants. Progent's commitment to delivering information technology expertise and technical help to small organizations will give you the opportunity to work closely with key players and contribute appreciably to the growth of dynamic companies.

We are hiring consultants that can show recognized certification in their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco consultants, show us your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other leading security certifications. Naturally, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Still, simply because a certificate can not ensure expertise is no justification for not earning one. If you have mastered your field, then most of these certifications should pose no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then customers deserve to see certifications. Progent can broadcast your skills, but you should have basic certifications for us to market. If you happen to be adamantly opposed to the idea of credentials, we can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Enhance Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Team of Network Consultants

Progent's business climate will make you a better professional by enhancing your information technology skills and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the best professional talent for you to operate with, providing an advanced network and communications infrastructure, using custom software tools to enable the maximum quality of service, and by streamlining our operational structures for finding and maintaining clients.

The decisive factor that differentiates Progent from typical network support companies is the high quality of our service staff. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have joined Progent, we have assembled top expertise covering a broad array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, network security, Apple, Linux, virtual servers, or other key areas, we deploy experts who can help you to be successful on larger jobs by leveraging the aggregate skills of Progent's team of experts.

To ensure the productivity of our consultants, we invest significantly in making available the most powerful tools to do the job efficiently. We will exploit information technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure allows effortless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with other Progent team members — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or forfeit income with regular drives to a conventional office, and any driving you do for in-person client work is determined by your own time table, not ours. The best benefit is that most of Progent's consulting work can be done remotely, representing 100% productivity for income-producing hours. In fact, some Progent staff do remote consulting exclusively.

Progent's operations are set up for reacting rapidly and effectively to customer requirements through knowledge exchange and cooperative problem solving. Although our consultants operate with a high level of freedom, dispatching is unified, customer problems and resolutions are carefully monitored, documented, and archived for easy reference, up-to-date consultant availability is published to streamline team projects and enable trouble escalation, and client approval is continually evaluated. We reinforce the feeling of cooperation through periodic team conferences and regular company-wide events.

Most of our consultants are situated throughout California, but Progent is building a rapidly expanding group of consulting professionals from across America. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic obstacles that limit the productivity of traditional company models. We enhance the package by offering a full employee care plan to promote the health and financial welfare of our employees and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consultants, our sales and operations groups live up to the high standards that defines Progent. These top-notch contributors to our growth are enabling us to identify and land the scores of new customers we are now acquiring every month. Progent recently celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective sales operation.

Possessing a commitment to 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 series of network challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Clients choose a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, advanced deployments, puzzling or entrenched problems, and difficult migrations are the basis for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly common for network professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by establishing strong customer relationships and by operating closely with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused company from top to bottom. If you do not have strong people skills or like working with a varied assortment of personalities, then we are probably not a good fit.

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