Additional Facts About Work with Us

Fulltime Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to find full-time, results-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification; Cisco accredited network engineers with Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security professionals with CISA or comparable security certification; and high-end system design consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, high uptime, workplace recovery, information preservation, and VMware. Progent also is looking for professionals who can work on Progent's team of helpdesk service technicians and off-site troubleshooting experts. Also, Progent is hiring talented administrators able to operate effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of talented and dedicated consultants, delivering attentive client care, and following a strong value-focused pricing structure, We have been able to expand our client base rapidly while delivering professional services to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared knowledge base, and a team strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a loyal client list.

If you are an information technology professional with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's clients will expand your skills via cooperation with Progent's staff of mutually supportive, expert consultants. Our commitment to providing network consulting and computer help to small and midsize companies will give you the opportunity to work closely with key players and add appreciably to the growth of dynamic businesses.

Progent is hiring technical professionals who can show recognized credentials in their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your MCSE credential. In the case of Cisco experts, have your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or other top security certifications. Naturally, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Nevertheless, the fact that a credential does not guarantee expertise is no reason for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of these tests should be no challenge. The point is that if you are a professional, then clients deserve to see certifications. We will promote your talents, but you must have basic credentials for us to market. If you are strongly opposed to the idea of credentials, Progent can understand and honor your opinion, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the best professional talent for you to operate with, providing an advanced system architecture, using proprietary software utilities to deliver the maximum level of service, and by streamlining proven operational structures for finding and keeping clients.

The most important factor that distinguishes us from typical network support companies is the quality of our consultants.

Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other key technologies, we engage professionals who can help you to be successful on larger projects by leveraging the collective skills of Progent's team of professionals.

To promote the productivity of our team, we invest heavily in making available the best technology to perform the work efficiently. We will exploit technology to an extraordinary extent and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables effortless connectivity, cooperation, and information sharing with other Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit income with daily drives to a conventional office, and all travel you do for in-person client jobs is determined by your own time table, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that most of our consulting services can be done off-site, representing maximum productivity for billable hours. In fact, some of our staff do remote consulting only.

Progent's operations are set up for responding quickly and effectively to client requirements through information exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Although Progent's consultants operate with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is unified, customer issues and resolutions are carefully monitored, documented, and organized for easy retrieval, up-to-date engineer availability is published to streamline group tasks and enable trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is always monitored. We strengthen the feeling of connection through periodic team conferences and regular company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's consultants are situated throughout Northern California, however we are attracting a rapidly growing team of network experts throughout the United States. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with regional boundaries that restrict the productivity of traditional business models. We enhance the package by providing a comprehensive benefit program to promote the physical health and economic welfare of our employees and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, Progent's marketing and administration groups match the excellence that defines Progent. These high-performance factors behind our growth are helping us to target and land the scores of new clients we are currently acquiring every month. Progent recently celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective sales operation.

Having a commitment to technical excellence is a key for growth with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to learn more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being exposed to a continual stream of technical challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Clients choose consultants to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, leading-edge implementations, vexing or entrenched problems, and difficult migrations are the basis for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for network professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every day enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will meet some great people, both by building strong customer relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Yes, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company from top to bottom. If you don’t have strong communications skills or enjoy working with a varied assortment of personalities, then we are in all likelihood a poor match.

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