Additional Facts About Work with Us

Staff Jobs for Network Consultants, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent is seeking to find full-time, results-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco certified network engineers who have Cisco certification; security professionals who have CISA or comparable security certification; and high-end network architecture experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, fault tolerance, workplace recovery, information protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for employees to join our staff of help desk service specialists and off-site support professionals. Also, We are looking for experienced managers who can perform productively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of talented and motivated consultants, delivering world-class customer care, and following a competitive results-based fee model, We have managed to increase our client list dramatically while delivering consulting support to numerous businesses in Northern California and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common knowledge database, and a group approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to retain a skilled staff and a satisfied client base.

If you are an information technology professional with technical support expertise, joining Progent or helping our clients will expand your skills through cooperation with our group of mutually supportive, talented engineers. Progent's focus on providing information technology consulting and technical help to small and midsize organizations will give you the opportunity to work closely with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the success of exciting businesses.

Progent is looking for consultants who can show verifiable certification in their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco experts, show us your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should have you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other top security credentials. Naturally, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". However, the fact that a certificate does not ensure expertise is no justification for not having one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of those certifications should pose no challenge. The point is that if you are an expert, then customers expect certifications. Progent can market your talents, but you should have standard credentials for Progent to work with. If you are adamantly against the concept of certifications, Progent can understand and honor your opinion, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Enhance Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Computer Consultants

Progent's company culture will make you a more capable professional by enhancing your information technology skills and boosting the satisfaction of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the top consulting talent for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, using specialized application tools to deliver the maximum level of service, and by optimizing our business models for finding and keeping customers.

The main factor that separates us from typical network support companies is the quality of our service staff. Out of the scores of consultants who have joined us, we have assembled top expertise across a broad range of technologies. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Apple, Linux, VMware, or other vital areas, we engage experts who can help you to be successful on major projects by combining the aggregate skills of Progent's team of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of our consultants, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful technology to perform the work efficiently. We will exploit information technology to an extraordinary extent and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables effortless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with fellow Progent consultants — all from at-home or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose income because of daily drives to a physical office, and any travel you do for on-site customer work is determined by your own time table, not ours. The best part is that much of our support work can be done remotely, offering maximum efficiency for income-producing time. In practice, some of our staff do off-site support only.

Progent's business structure is set up for reacting quickly and efficiently to client requirements through information sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Although Progent's engineers work with a high level of independence, dispatching is centralized, customer problems and solutions are carefully tracked, documented, and organized for easy retrieval, up-to-date engineer schedules are published to streamline team tasks and enable problem escalation, and client satisfaction is continually evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation through periodic team conferences and regular corporate events.

The majority of our consultants are located throughout California, but we are building a quickly expanding group of network professionals from across America. Our virtual office environment eliminates geographic boundaries that restrict the productivity of conventional business models. We complete the deal by providing a full benefit plan to ensure the physical health and economic welfare of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consultants, Progent's marketing and administration teams live up to the high standards that defines Progent. These top-notch contributors to our growth are helping us to identify and sign up the scores of new customers we are now engaging every month. We lately 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 operation.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a cornerstone for success with us. A career in consulting will push you to learn more than is possible in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a steady series of technical challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Customers choose a consultant to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, advanced implementations, puzzling or entrenched problems, and tricky upgrades are the basis for our services daily. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is all too common for network engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every day excited about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will meet some wonderful people, both by building close customer contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will learn from and add to their success. Yes, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization heart and soul. If you don’t have strong people skills or like cooperating with a varied group of people, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor match.

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