Details Concerning Work with Us

Fulltime Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent wants to find staff-level, solutions-driven Microsoft certified consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP certification; Cisco accredited network engineers with Cisco CCIE or CCNP credentials; security consultants who have CISM or comparable security credentials; and advanced system architecture consultants with a background in mobile access, wireless networking, fault tolerance, workplace recovery, data preservation, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for employees who can join Progent's staff of desktop service specialists and remote support professionals. In addition, Progent is seeking experienced managers who can operate effectively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of talented and motivated consultants, delivering world-class customer care, and following a strong value-focused fee structure, Progent has been able to expand our client base rapidly while delivering professional services to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and across the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a shared knowledge database, and a group strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a loyal customer base.

For a network consultant with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's clients can expand your skills via cooperation with our staff of highly supportive, talented consultants. Progent's focus on providing network consulting and technical support to small companies will give you the chance to collaborate intimately with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the success of dynamic companies.

We are hiring consultants who can show verifiable certification in their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential. In the case of Cisco professionals, show us your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security credentials. Of course, we are aware of "paper experts". Still, the fact that a credential does not ensure expertise is no reason for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of these tests should be no great difficulty. The point is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then clients expect certifications. Progent will market your talents, but you need to provide basic certifications for Progent to market. In case you stand strongly against the concept of certifications, we can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are probably not a good fit.

Improve Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining the Top Group of Network Engineers

Progent's company culture will make you a better consultant by enhancing your technical skills and boosting the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the best professional talent for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, using custom application utilities to enable the maximum quality of support, and by streamlining proven operational models for attracting and retaining customers.

The decisive factor that differentiates us from other network support companies is the quality of our service staff. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have recruited the best expertise covering a broad array of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, network security, Apple, Linux/UNIX, virtual servers, or other crucial technologies, we deploy experts who can help you to be successful on major jobs by leveraging the aggregate skills of our team of experts.

To ensure the success of our consultants, we invest heavily in making available the best technology to perform the work efficiently. Progent will leverage information technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables seamless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge sharing with fellow Progent team members — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of daily commutes to a conventional office building, and all driving you do for in-person customer jobs is based on your own schedule, not ours. The best benefit is that much of our support services can be done off-site, offering maximum efficiency for billable time. In practice, some of our team members do off-site support only.

Progent's business structure is geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to customer needs through information sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Even though our engineers operate with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, customer issues and solutions are carefully tracked, documented, and organized for easy retrieval, up-to-date consultant availability is broadcast to facilitate team tasks and enable problem escalation, and client satisfaction is always evaluated. We reinforce the sense of connection via periodic team conferences and regular company-wide events.

Most of Progent's consultants are situated throughout California, but we are attracting a rapidly growing team of consulting professionals from across the U.S. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic boundaries that limit the productivity of conventional business structures. We enhance the package by providing a comprehensive benefit plan to promote the health and financial security of our team members and their families.

Just as we have world-class consultants, our marketing and administration groups live up to the high standards that defines Progent. These top-notch factors behind Progent’s success are enabling us to target and sign up the scores of new clients we are now engaging each month. We 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 Progent is also a strong marketing organization.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other job in information technology. Being exposed to a steady series of technical challenges is what keeps consulting exciting. Clients choose consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, advanced deployments, puzzling or chronic problems, and difficult migrations are the basis for what we do every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

Along the way, you will work with some great people, both by building strong client relationships and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused organization through and through. If you do not have excellent people skills or like cooperating with a varied group of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor fit.

If this sounds right for you, we urge you to contact Progent about our view of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.
