Career Work for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire staff-level, results-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco certified network engineers with Cisco CCIE or CCNP credentials; security professionals with CISA or comparable security credentials; and advanced system architecture experts with a background in mobile access, wireless connectivity, high availability, business continuity, data protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for employees to join Progent's team of helpdesk support technicians and remote support experts. In addition, We are hiring talented administrators able to perform effectively in Progent's fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a staff of skilled and motivated consultants, delivering attentive customer care, and following a strong results-based fee structure, We have managed to expand our client base dramatically while providing consulting support to numerous companies in Northern California and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared knowledge base, and a team approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a satisfied customer base.

For an information technology professional with technical support experience, joining Progent or helping Progent's customers can expand your knowledge via interaction with our staff of highly team-oriented, expert consultants. Our commitment to delivering network expertise and computer help to small and midsize organizations will give you the opportunity to work closely with key players and contribute appreciably to the growth of dynamic businesses.

We are hiring consultants that can show recognized credentials related to their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco consultants, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security credentials. Naturally, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Still, the fact that a certificate can not guarantee excellence is no excuse for not owning one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of these tests should pose no great difficulty. The crux of the matter is that if you call yourself a professional, then customers expect credentials. Progent can broadcast your skills, but you should have basic credentials for Progent to work with. If you are strongly against the idea of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and honor your opinion, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

Improve Your Skills with Advanced Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Computer Engineers

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a more capable consultant by enhancing your information technology skills and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent makes good on this commitment by recruiting the top consulting experts for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art system architecture, using specialized software tools to deliver the highest quality of support, and by optimizing proven operational structures for finding and keeping customers.

The decisive factor that separates Progent from other network support companies is the quality of our consultants. Out of the 50 or so consulting experts who have teamed with us, we have recruited top expertise covering a wide range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Mac, Linux/UNIX, VMware, or other vital technologies, we deploy experts who can help you to be effective on major jobs by combining the aggregate skills of Progent's team of professionals.

To promote the success of Progent's team, we invest heavily in providing the best technology to do the work efficiently. Progent will leverage information technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office environment allows seamless communications, cooperation, and information exchange with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose income because of regular drives to a physical office building, and all driving you do for in-person client jobs is based on your own time table, not ours. The best part is that most of Progent's consulting work can be performed remotely, representing 100% productivity for income-producing hours. In fact, some of our staff do remote consulting exclusively.

Progent's business structure is geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to client needs through knowledge sharing and collaborative problem resolution. Even though Progent's consultants operate with a great deal of freedom, resource allocation is centralized, client issues and resolutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and organized for easy reference, up-to-date consultant schedules are published to streamline group tasks and simplify trouble escalation, and client approval is continually monitored. We reinforce the sense of cooperation via periodic team meetings and regular corporate events.

Most of Progent's team is situated throughout California, but Progent is building a quickly growing team of consulting professionals from across the U.S. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional boundaries that restrict the efficiency of traditional company models. We enhance the package by providing a full employee care plan to ensure the physical health and financial welfare of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, Progent's marketing and administration teams live up to the excellence that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to our success are enabling us to target and land the 50-60 new clients we are currently acquiring every month. Progent lately marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong sales organization.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with us. A job in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being exposed to a steady series of network challenges is what keeps professional support exciting. Customers choose a consultant to perform the “hard stuff.” Innovative tasks, advanced deployments, vexing or entrenched issues, and difficult migrations are the foundation for what we do daily. With us, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for computer professionals in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every day excited about the challenges to come.

On the way, you will meet some great people, both by building strong client contacts and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused organization from top to bottom. If you do not offer strong people skills or enjoy working with a varied group of personalities, then we are probably a poor match.

If all this sounds good to you, we urge you to talk to Progent about our vision of the future of information technology consulting.
