Details Concerning Jobs with Us

Career Work for Network Engineers, Computer Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Online Support Technicians

Progent wants to hire staff-level, solutions-oriented Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE or MCSA credentials; Cisco certified system engineers with Cisco CCIE credentials; security consultants who have CISSP or comparable security credentials; and high-end system design consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, business continuity, data protection, and virtual servers. Progent also is looking for employees who can join our staff of helpdesk support specialists and remote support experts. In addition, Progent is seeking talented administrators who can perform productively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By maintaining a team of talented and dedicated consultants, delivering attentive customer care, and offering a strong value-focused pricing structure, Progent has managed to expand our client base dramatically while providing consulting support to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared information database, and a group approach to problem solving have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a satisfied client base.

For an information technology professional with technical support expertise, joining Progent or working for our clients will expand your skills via interaction with Progent's staff of mutually team-oriented, expert consultants. Progent's focus on providing network consulting and computer help to small organizations will give you the chance to work intimately with decision makers and add significantly to the success of dynamic companies.

We are hiring technical professionals that have verifiable credentials in their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. In the case of Cisco professionals, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other top security credentials. Naturally, Progent is familiar with "paper experts". Nevertheless, simply because a credential does not ensure expertise is no justification for not owning one. If you have mastered your stuff, then most of those tests should pose no great difficulty. The bottom line is that if you call yourself an expert, then customers expect certifications. We can market your skills, but you must have standard certifications for us to market. If you stand adamantly opposed to the idea of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Working with a Great Team of Computer Engineers

Progent makes good on this promise by recruiting the best consulting experts for you to operate with, providing an advanced system infrastructure, running custom application tools to deliver the maximum level of support, and by streamlining proven operational models for finding and maintaining clients.

The decisive factor that separates us from typical consulting firms is the high caliber of our service staff. Out of the scores of consultants who have teamed with us, we have assembled top expertise covering a broad array of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, corporate security, Macintosh, Linux, virtual servers, or other key areas, we engage experts who can enable you to be successful on larger jobs by combining the collective experience of Progent's team of professionals.

To promote the productivity of our consultants, we invest heavily in making available the best tools to perform the work efficiently. We will exploit technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure allows effortless connectivity, collaboration, and knowledge exchange with other Progent consultants — all from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or lose income because of regular drives to a physical office, and any driving you do for in-person client jobs is determined by your own time table, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that most of Progent's consulting services can be done off-site, representing maximum efficiency for billable hours. In fact, some of our staff do remote support only.

Our operations are set up for responding quickly and effectively to client needs via information exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Even though our consultants work with a high level of independence, resource allocation is unified, customer problems and solutions are carefully tracked, documented, and archived for convenient reference, up-to-date consultant availability is published to facilitate group tasks and enable problem escalation, and customer approval is continually evaluated. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation via monthly workgroup meetings and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of our team is located throughout Northern California, however we are attracting a rapidly expanding team of network professionals throughout the U.S. Progent's virtual office infrastructure does away with geographic obstacles that limit the efficiency of traditional business structures. We complete the deal by providing a full employee care program to promote the physical health and financial welfare of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, our sales and operations groups match the high standards that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s growth are enabling us to target and land the scores of new customers we are now engaging each month. Progent recently celebrated the delivery of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong marketing operation.

Possessing a passion for technical proficiency is a key for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a continual series of technical challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Clients rely on consultants to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, leading-edge deployments, vexing or chronic problems, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for our services every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for network engineers in ordinary corporate roles. You will wake up every morning enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will work with some great folks, both by establishing close client relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and add to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but Progent is a relationship-oriented organization heart and soul. If you don’t have excellent communications skills or like cooperating with a varied assortment of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good fit.

If this sounds right for you, we urge you to contact Progent about our view of the future of network consulting.
