Details Concerning Jobs with Us

Staff Jobs for Network Consultants, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to find staff-level, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco accredited system consultants with Cisco credentials; security consultants with CISA or equivalent security credentials; and advanced system architecture consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, fault tolerance, business continuity, information protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring professionals to work on Progent's staff of helpdesk support technicians and off-site support professionals. In addition, Progent is hiring experienced managers who can operate effectively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of skilled and dedicated consultants, providing world-class customer care, and offering a strong results-focused fee model, We have been able to expand our client base rapidly while delivering professional services to numerous businesses in Northern California and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared knowledge database, and a team strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a loyal customer base.

For an information technology consultant with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's clients can enhance your skills through cooperation with our group of mutually supportive, expert engineers. Our focus on providing network expertise and technical help to small and midsize companies will offer you the opportunity to collaborate closely with key players and add appreciably to the success of exciting companies.

Progent is hiring technical professionals that can show verifiable certification in their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your MCSE certificate. In the case of Cisco professionals, have your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other leading security certifications. Of course, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” However, simply because a credential can not guarantee excellence is no justification for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of these certifications should be no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then customers expect credentials. Progent will promote your skills, but you should provide standard credentials for Progent to market. In case you happen to be strongly against the concept of certifications, we can understand and honor your position, but you are probably not an appropriate fit.

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

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a more capable professional by enhancing your information technology skills and boosting the satisfaction of your customers. Progent makes good on this commitment by recruiting the best consulting talent for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications infrastructure, running proprietary software tools to deliver the maximum level of support, and by optimizing proven operational models for attracting and retaining customers.

The decisive factor that distinguishes us from ordinary network support companies is the high quality of our service staff. Among the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have recruited the best talent across a wide array of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Apple, Linux, virtual servers, or other vital areas, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be successful on larger jobs by combining the collective skills of our team of professionals.

To promote the success of our team, we invest heavily in providing the best tools to do the work efficiently. We will leverage technology to an extraordinary degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows seamless communications, collaboration, and information exchange with other Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t waste time or forfeit revenue because of daily commutes to a physical office building, and all travel you do for on-site client jobs is based on your schedule, not Progent's. The best benefit is that much of Progent's consulting services can be performed remotely, representing maximum productivity for billable hours. In practice, some of our staff do remote consulting exclusively.

Progent's business structure is set up for responding quickly and effectively to client needs through knowledge exchange and collaborative problem solving. Even though Progent's consultants work with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is unified, customer issues and solutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and organized for convenient retrieval, up-to-date engineer availability is broadcast to streamline team projects and enable trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is continually evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation via periodic workgroup meetings and quarterly corporate events.

Most of our consultants are situated throughout Northern California, but Progent is building a quickly growing group of network professionals throughout the United States. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with regional obstacles that restrict the productivity of conventional company models. We complete the package by offering a full employee care program to ensure the physical health and economic security of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, our marketing and operations groups match the high standards that characterizes Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s growth are helping us to identify and sign up the scores of new clients we are currently acquiring every month. We lately celebrated the delivery of support to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why Progent is also an effective marketing organization.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for success with us. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of technical challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Clients rely on consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, leading-edge implementations, vexing or chronic issues, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for our services daily. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for network engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some great people, both by building strong customer contacts and by working closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented organization through and through. If you don’t offer strong communications skills or enjoy cooperating with a diverse assortment of personalities, then we are probably a poor fit.

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