Fulltime Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent wants to find fulltime, results-driven Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA certification; Cisco accredited network consultants with Cisco CCIE or CCNP certification; security professionals with CISA or comparable security credentials; and high-end system architecture consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, service continuity, disaster recovery, information preservation, and VMware. Progent also seeks professionals who can work on Progent's team of helpdesk service technicians and off-site troubleshooting experts. Also, We are hiring experienced managers who can operate productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a staff of skilled and motivated consultants, providing world-class customer services, and following a strong results-focused pricing structure, We have managed to increase our client base rapidly while delivering consulting services to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common information base, and a group strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a talented staff and a satisfied client list.

For a network professional with troubleshooting experience, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's customers can expand your skills via interaction with Progent's staff of highly supportive, talented engineers. Progent's focus on providing network expertise and technical support to small and midsize companies will offer you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with key players and add significantly to the success of exciting companies.

We are hiring technical professionals who have verifiable certification related to their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your MCSE certificate. For Cisco consultants, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or one of the other top security certifications. Of course, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” Still, simply because a credential does not ensure expertise is no reason for not earning one. If you know your field, then the majority of these tests should present no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you represent yourself to be an expert, then customers expect credentials. Progent can broadcast your talents, but you should provide basic credentials for Progent to work with. In case you stand strongly opposed to the idea of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and respect your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate fit.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Working with a Great Team of Network Engineers

Progent's work environment will make you a more capable consultant by enhancing your technical knowledge and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the top professional experts for you to work with, offering an advanced system architecture, running custom application utilities to deliver the maximum quality of support, and by streamlining our business structures for finding and maintaining clients.

The most important factor that differentiates us from most network support companies is the excellence of our service staff. Out of the scores of consultants who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited the best expertise across a broad range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Apple, Linux, VMware, or other crucial technologies, we deploy experts who can help you to be effective on larger projects by leveraging the collective skills of our group of professionals.

To promote the success of our consultants, we invest significantly in providing the most powerful technology to perform the job efficiently. Progent will exploit information technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables seamless connectivity, collaboration, and information sharing with fellow Progent consultants — all from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of regular commutes to a physical office, and all travel you do for in-person customer work is based on your own time table, not ours. The best part is that much of Progent's support services can be performed off-site, representing 100% efficiency for billable time. In practice, some of our staff do off-site consulting exclusively.

Our business structure is geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to client needs via knowledge exchange and cooperative problem solving. Even though our consultants work with a high level of independence, dispatching is unified, customer problems and solutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and organized for convenient reference, current engineer schedules are broadcast to streamline group projects and enable trouble escalation, and customer approval is always monitored. We strengthen the sense of connection through periodic workgroup conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

Most of our consultants are located across California, but Progent is attracting a rapidly growing team of consulting experts throughout the U.S. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional obstacles that limit the efficiency of traditional business structures. We enhance the deal by providing a comprehensive employee care plan to ensure the physical health and financial security of our employees and their families.

Just as we have world-class consultants, Progent's sales and operations teams match the high standards that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to our growth are helping us to target and land the 50-60 new customers we are currently acquiring every month. Progent lately celebrated 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 a strong sales operation.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a key for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to learn 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 choose consultants to do the toughest jobs. Innovative tasks, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or entrenched issues, and difficult upgrades are the basis for what we do every day. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is all too typical for computer professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful folks, both by establishing close customer relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their success. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you do not offer strong people skills or enjoy working with a diverse assortment of personalities, then Progent is probably a poor match.

If all this sounds good to you, we invite you to contact us about our view of the future of network consulting.
